Although I'm a “glamor” photographer at heart, I have long photographed travels, sculpture & architecture, construction projects, and insurance claims; and it's to that often unglamorous work that I owe my current skill. It's also probably why I prefer to photograph my models out of doors, in the locations mentioned above.
I work in the “documentary style; and I prefer to do my glamor work in a “soft core” style, meaning photos that are as Hot as possible, but still capable of appearing in a PG venue, with the occasional 'R-rated” shot, perhaps. I can enjoy viewing and shooting more explicit material, including fetish work, but I best like my material to appeal to a wide range of people – or at lest to be viewable by them at, including at work.
I strive to use negative space to add “Magic” to my work; and I generally frame my shots to preclude the need for cropping, though cropping often remains an option.
What do I want from this site? I want to make contact with models in the Cleveland area, and with other photographers located here and beyond. I'll do almost any work that interests me; I don't care to pin myself down; and I won't consider it a bother if you ask and I'm not interested, so ask away. To illustrate this last point, I recently climbed into a dangerous location to help a contractor land a $9500 construction project. I felt it was rewarding work, and I was well-compensated. Nevertheless, I'd have much rather photographed the contractor herself. She's a ravishingly lovely lady, but she wouldn't hear of it (I've asked her more than once).
Current pet project: I want to photograph a series of female models in my softcore style in various Cleveland, Ohio venues, including the fabulous Lakeside Memorial Park / Garfield Monument, which is sometimes called our outdoor art museum and arboretum. Any takers? TFP? TFCD? Payment in cash, perhaps?
