I'm a semi-professional, a hobbyist with an occasional paid gig, an experienced art-directed photographer. I've done a lot of different genres and collaborated with many models on shoots that have helped us both.
Where I shoot:
Colorado's Front Range, from the Denver metro area north, out to the Eastern Plains, into the Rockies, and up into Southern Wyoming. I don't travel as much as I used to, but when I do, I like to shoot wherever I land.
What I bring to the shoot:
Full attention to the results, making the model look good, diverging from the plan as other inspiration hits, self-deprecating humor, and gentlemanly behavior. Yes, anyone can say
that. Please refer to the following testimonials:
"It's been a privilege working with you. You're SUCH a talented photographer, and are hands down the best at sending edited pics back to me quickly! I think your ideas are brilliant and somehow you never quit coming up with more! Thank you so much for being respectful about my limits, and making me feel extremely comfortable. I would love to have you as my own personal photographer, and just shoot with you every day, it's really been such a pleasure working with you..
" - Ris Lavender, former Colorado model and all-around lovely person
"Creating with you has always been a pleasure...even in eighteen degree windy winter weather shooting nudes atop a parking garage in deep Colorado cold! You are a gentleman, inspired, and consistently kind. It has been an honor to know you
." - Betcee May, publication and television model, and a lady with undying charm
I've paid the model, been paid to shoot, and done a lot of trade. The money isn't all that important. I have a day job. The satisfaction of creating nice images is what drives my efforts.

I can shoot in studio or outdoors, although given the choice and weather permitting, I prefer outdoors.

Nudity and comfort
I do family-friendly, and I do shots with skin showing (artistic rather than erotic). Often a certain level of flesh, done right, is provocative or interesting. But if you want to shoot with me and want to keep it family-friendly, just say so
. If you don't mind some nudity but have specific limits, I'll honor them
The model must feel comfortable
and have fun. It shows in the results and the enthusiasm that the model projects.
I want to shoot my best, and I shoot better without others looking on. I've been with many models one-on-one in hotel rooms, isolated in the country, without having the hint of an issue. If you don't want to take my word for it, I'll give you references. But if you're solid on having an escort, let's talk.
Take a look at my portfolio, and I hope you enjoy my work. Whether or not you do, feel free to comment. Affirmation is nice to hear, and critique is one of those necessary things we need to hear.
