Here's one for ya... After swinging a camera for well over 40 years, I was inspired to enter my first photo contest... ever. Here's the result. I'm afraid to push my luck, so I think I'll quit while I'm ahead! LOL! Thank you so much for your votes!

I appreciate you taking the time to visit my profile and portfolio. Here are some things you should know...
Me: I've been shooting since the mid-70's. (actually, it was 10 years before that... but I won't count learning with a Kodak Instamatic and Diana-F) I'm formally educated in nature, landscapes, portraits, commercial, architecture, erotica and photojournalism. I'm a self taught digital photographer. I will generally come to a shoot armed with a sense of humor
Post-Production: I don't use Photoshop to enhance my work. I use lenses, filters, lighting and camera technique. I recently learned how to touch up a zit or an out-of-place hair, but that's about it. What you see is pretty much what came out of my camera.
MM Goals: To continue doing what I love doing most... meeting, shooting and working with beautiful people. Passing on knowledge I've gained over the years, and trying to help others reach their goals.
Rates: My rates are WAY variable. As in: are you coming to me, or am I hauling a truckload of equipment, wardrobe, props and accessories 4 hours each way to shoot you? If you have a theme or concept in mind, let's talk about it. I'm not opposed to doing trade work if your look, attitude and style will benefit us both... and if you ask real nice
Travel: I often travel to Austin, Shreveport and Houston. If you are in one of these areas and believe my work will benefit your port or career, let me know and we'll try to work something out.
Escorts: You are more than welcome to bring an escort with you as long as they are listed in the Yellow Pages under 'Escorts.' At least with that amount of credibility, they are not as likely to disrupt or distract from a shoot, or steal my stuff. Escorts that are not listed are welcome to drop you off at the shoot and pick you up when the shoot is over.
References: This part is easy. Contact anyone on my friends list. If they are on there... I've worked with them thru MM. I'm sure you can find at least one that will say nice things about me
Friend Requests: Although I appreciate the notion of sending me an unsolicited/unexplained friend request, I have chosen to only add people I have worked with personally. It's simple.... If I have worked with you, I'll add you. If I haven't, I won't. It's not a numbers game for me, thank you.
Flakes: This is easy. Flake once... you won't get another chance.
