It has been said that each snowflake is unique. I see each moment in time as an intersection of subject, emotion and light. It is my goal to try to capture some of those unique moments/images before they "melt" away. When photographing a male figure, what grabs my attention is usually the model's eyes, mouth and facial structure. A perfect body is not a requirement and I've found that often it is a detriment. What I try to capture is the model's "soul": that unique combination of personality, heart and past experiences that makes each flesh and blood man a one-of-a-kind piece of art.
TFCD: When working with models, I currently trade a CD of the work for my right to use in my portfolio, in a show or a future book, etc. (You'll get a minimum of the best 12 images per shoot). I retain copyright on all my photographs unless other arrangements are made. Although it's obvious that I shoot a lot of art nudes, I will try and work with the comfort level of my model. Just remember that we both need to have something that each of us can use as a result of a free/TFCD shoot. I am also available to help you with some of your ideas and needs, on a paid basis.
Message me with any questions or to discuss a shoot.
