Please read my entire profile. It contains important information. Knowledge of this information will avoid misunderstandings.

My approach to photography.
                                                                   
I paint ideas, not things. I paint primarily because I have something to say, ...

I want to photograph ideas. Models, objects and settings convey ideas. They are not isolated entities. They have been placed in an image to achieve a harmonious whole which is a visual recreation of an idea.

...and since the gift of eloquent language has been denied me, I use painting.
                                                                        -George Frederick Watts.

I use photography.

My Influences.

I am influenced by Arthur Albert Allen, Diane Arbus, Alfred Cheney Johnston,  Robert Mapplethorpe, Helmut Newton and Man Ray.

Current Projects.

Cabaret. I imagine that I am a photographer in Berlin during the 1920s who photographs cabaret performers. The images produced have a strong Film-Noire with powerful shadows.

Painted Faces. I explore the similarities and differences between clowns, mimes and Butoh.

Lonely Saturday Nights. I am a voyeur peeking at beautiful women who are alone on this night of the week.

Dance! My newest project. Of course I love to photograph ballerinas. However, I am interested in modern and Latin dance too.

Boring Bondage. The title says it all. Bondage doesn't have to be intense. It can be boring and funny too.

The Rusted truck. There is a  derelict truck in a forest close to my home. It is a wonderful object to use with a model.

Closed Projects.

Mister Rhett. Mister Rhett died the evening of January 8, 2012. This album is his memorial.

What do I look for in a model?

First, I look for intelligence. I don't want a warm breathing  manikin. I want someone who understands what I am trying to do and helps to achieve my vision. I want to make clear that I do not equate intelligence with academic achievement. Some of the wisest people I have met never went to college or finished high school.

Second, I look for a sense of humor. I don't want to work with models who believe they are God's gift to the world. If you can't find the humor in "Monty Python's Flying Circus", the writings of Douglas Adams or the brilliant animated series "Squidbillies", I doubt we can be successful collaborators.

Finally, I look for professionalism. I treat my models professionally; I expect reciprocity. I keep my appointments with models. I expect models to keep their appointments with me. Don't schedule a shoot with me if you won't show up. I spend quite a bit of time scheduling and planning for shoots. I often purchase items to use with a specific model for a specific shoot. If the model doesn't show up I have wasted time and money. Finally, don't contact me about working together if you are not serious. Flirting may be fun with a boyfriend but it is not becoming to a model and exasperating to a photographer.

Important Information For Models. I am a patient chap but I do have limits. Any model that is a no show and has failed to answer my emails is dead to me. I will under no circumstances work with her in the future. I will not work with a model that constantly requests to reschedule a shoot without serious reasons. Finally I will not pursue a model with endless request to work with her. After three failed attempts I move on.

Rejection. No one likes to be rejected. It hurts. It makes one feel inadequate.
Unfortunately I have to reject many models who request to shoot with me. They should not take this rejection personally. I don't just shoot models. I shoot for projects that encompass certain ideas and approaches. Often I have to reject excellent models because they don't fit my current projects. My rejection in no way reflects on the model herself but on my needs at the time.
