I am also a professional still photographer, who is primarily focused on avant-garde art photography. I shoot with many different kinds of cameras and formats from Polaroids to Point-And-Shoot to HDSLR to 35mm and beyond (with an emphasis on doing everything in-camera), creating both raw and stylized images. I am obsessed with film noir, grainy images, organic textures, and structural design both natural and artificial. I am also obsessed with both REALITY and MYSTERY, and capturing them both with minimal interference, and only relying on synchronicity and human interaction.

As part of a mysterious ongoing (for the time being) photography project called "MYSTERY" (i.e. "Mystery World Of Sex", the movie, AND "Mystery Worlds", the book series), I also work under the name, MR. E, and am focused on abstract and surreal erotic photography and the photography of intimate ephemera. As MR. E, I also shoot additional adult photography for Fox Magazine, Watch 4 Beauty, and several other publications and websites. MR. E also has an official Clips4Sale site called "Mister E's Mystery World". I also occasionally model and act in front of the camera under the name, Brock Doom. Some of my MR. E photography can be seen on my erotic Tumblr portfolio page: http://mrephoto.tumblr.com and http://images4sale.com/70167
