An aside...
This industry has made it a point of building itself around the "beautiful" (the "beautiful people", the images of those who supposedly embody "beauty"...). But, what about those who are not quite as "beautiful"; who is their mouthpiece, where is their forum...




I love the art of Photography!

I’m no “Digital Johnny Come Lately” (“…ooo, a digital camera…I’ve always wanted to be a photographer…”). I’ve been doing photography for almost 27 years; I’ve got a SpeedGraphix 4x5 that I still use just for fun! I know that this is a passion that I am supposed to follow because I’m still amazed when shot comes really HOT! I’ve done it all, from the darkroom to Chem Mixing, from aerial to architecture, but nothing blows my mind like Fashion & Glamour work, the sensation of having a Sistah of Divinity bearing her soul to me as I attempt to immortalize her!

As I said, I love the artistry of “Light Writing”. The stuff you see here will have an intense range, from available light to multiple strobe studio stuff; at times it can be raw (whatever’s there in the moment) and then at times, I’ll throw some very polished stuff at you; I can do simple portraiture as well as the Avant-Garde Risque’. I LOATHE THE NOTION OF HAVING TO TAKE THE SAME PICTURE OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER...and over; I never want to take the same picture twice. When clients come to me saying, “I want to take a picture like that!”, I make it clear that we can do shot “like that”, but definitely not the “same shot”! There’s a different energy, a different day, a totally feel for each person that stands before my lens, so I’m not looking to re-create what I’ve already done. I appreciate a new challenge…

I launched the BIGGEST exhibition/dissertation of my career in 2008 entitled “I Love Black Women”; the show gives homage to Sistahs who have been influential in my life and in my career, a tribute to SURVIVORS OF BREAST CANCER and an in depth discussion of the schisms created from contradictions of the fashion industry about their faux pas notions of beauty standards! Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to support this tremendous project! THE BOOK IS STILL COMING!

I have to be HELLA' HONEST here folks, YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR!!! It is incredibly insulting to request the services of a professional and not duly compensate them for their expertise! I've attempted to adjust my basic fees to accommodate the clients/members of MM, but pro bono work is rarely of an advantage to us. I have an extremely great crew that must properly be compensated, and when all is said and done, I'd like to continue paying my bills and be able to get a meal out of the whole process...

Let’s keep it real folks, as with everyone else here in MM, I’m looking for more work and more exposure; is there a photographer out there with “too much work” or “too much exposure”…’nuff said! I’d love to work with some new faces; diversity is always great! I’m not looking to do “hoochie-hook-me-ups”! I think I’ve paid enough dues in this industry to not be haggled. I love to travel, so feel free to contact me!

I look forward to YOU gracing my lens one day very soon!

My base rate is $275 which includes 1 1/2 hours of shooting (unlimited shoots/unlimited changes); it normally includes a basic print package, but for MM's, I'll put all of the images on a CD for you and ask for photo credits when they are used. The next shoot cost $345 and includes up to 4 hours of shooting time; all the peripherals from the 1st shoot would apply here as well. We'll shoot in the studio, and do some location work as well.

I've been very blessed to find 4 TOP SHELF MUA's. 3 of the 4 have been trained by Hollywood's SAM FINE (Essence, Ebony Mag...)! Their rates are incredibly reasonable considering the tremendous talent that they deliver! They're base rate is $75 for the initial look, $25 for any enhancements/adjustments/changes. Airbrush is $85 per look; full body make up is starts at $125 depending upon the extent.
