Most of my imagery and photographic art involve lifestyle and training, and related fashion, fashion-style portraiture, dramatic portraiture, catalog modeling, etc. Much, but certainly not all, involve scuba and underwater exploration produced by a team that includes specialized professional full and part time models. These take place both in the studio and in the field. Not all of this is underwater work, though obviously much of it is. Click on the link above for a wider variety of work samples, as well as my blog.
Beyond these, my personal projects are both related and unrelated to scuba. These may be for pay, for personal interest or to support a worthy cause. Most of these are fashion, dramatic and traditional portraits, beauty, and product. Some of these are editorial that include written work as well as photography.
I shoot TF as a way to meet and gain experience with new models, to expand my skills in new directions and to take on projects that interest me. This especially includes editorial and commercial fashion (studio, location and underwater) and beauty. Not that this is a promise or guarantee, but we have hired several models and MUAs for paid shoots after working TF with them -- when I have a tight deadline, I contact those whose work I know I can count on.
Time is my primary limitation with respect to personal projects and TFs, but please ask. I'm always looking for something new to work on, and someone new to work with.
Much of my work involves models of both genders in swimsuits and bodysuits, but I'm not accepting assignments or interested in projects that could be considered sexually explicit, overtly suggestive or involve 18+ nudity (even artistic). I have 3 or more people on set when working (counting talent) and models/MUAs are welcome to bring escorts.
Often I get requests to do underwater fashion photography. When I have the time, I love doing this, and have access to a suitable pool. Be aware that this type of photography is more difficult (for the model) than it looks. Generally, I prefer an initial studio or other conventional fashion-type shoot before going underwater. If this interests you, please contact me, but be aware you need to be very comfortable in water.
If you send a friend request, I'd appreciate a message.
