READ THIS TOP PARAGRAPH - the short version: American Painter, Designer. Serious about my work, but with an informal style - I shoot fast, like an Artist, not a fussy photographer, - & blast Gaga if I am shooting in the studio. My best models are as much accomplices, as anything - we are a team, to get that kickass shot. Most shoots have an old school pin-up flavor. TFP: maybe, depending on 12 things.
Known as an artist even way back in grade school,& taken with racing instead of regular sports, a non-standard kid. Two tours of duty through college; Film Production first, Fine Art second. Copperplate Printing to Japanese Woodcut to Oil Pastel, and finally to canvas. But 97% of artists quit Art as a career; I have been determined never to do that. Self taught in computer graphics, since the mid-90s. Over the last 25 years I developed a body of work - big Paintings - simultaneously working as a graphics pro. My involvement in motorcycle racing led to me to Racing Design.
Fascinated with shape, especially industrial & female forms, but unmoved w/standard composition and bored to sleep seeing only skinny models. Pin-UpCalendars (just as an example, but really it's everywhere) feature bland persons with no hips who look like little boys - which for an American Man is peculiar to say the least. I constantly am told "your models are so much HOTTER~!" It is because they are REAL WOMEN. So all these things came together: passion for design, for racing, for typography, for photography. And of course a passion for beautiful women.
In a model I look for those who bring their A-Game, work with me to get that perfect shot, as my top models have for for years now - and always do - all equally awesome: Little Red, CourtneyRenae, Maila Vixen & Kory Lapham. But interested in working with new persons with a passion to get it right; woman who aren't twigs, ie beautiful real women. Curvy Models, in fact~!
Yep. I'm gonna change the world myself, if I have to.
