I DO NOT ACCEPT TFP, or TFCD, or shoot for free!
Onto bigger and better things!
I am a photographer/art director/computer animator based in Los Angeles. I started shooting in Detroit Michigan back in 1989, where I began to develop my own style. I am an old school film slr photographer, but I have worked my way into digital shooting as well. I can work in both worlds, and I understand both.
Influences: Julie Margaret Cameron, Madame Yevonde, Horst, Irving Penn, Alfred Stieglitz, Lucas Sumaras, Cindy Sherman, David LaChapelle, Pictorialists of the early 1900's, Giger, Beksinski, etc.
