******UPDATE****Finally i made the move back to California. Currently I reside in Monterey but will be moving down south in the beginning of next year. Models, male and female alike, I need to put together ALL NEW portfolios. I will drive pretty much anywhere. if you have some amazing ideas, let's hear them. From the outrageous to the most simple, I am all ears. I refuse to let the economy get the better of me and am getting back to my creativity which makes me happy. Holla' at me. Thank you and have a wonderful holiday!!!!!
**Side note-- It has been a while since I have been on MM. The work that i am seeing is amazing and it appears that the bar has been set higher. Kudos to the young models who are comfortable with their bodies and expressing their creativity via nude/implied nude. And a HUGE salute to the 35+ models whose bodies are as ripped as the 20 year olds. And obviously the make-up artists and stylists are putting out incredible efforts as well*** I am definitely excited again.
Loved photography all my life ever since my grandparents gave me my 1st camera, a little kodak at 13 yrs. Assisted some people shooters in '87 to '88 but became quite serious when i attended the Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara much later. Graduated in '94 and worked in Los Angeles for a few years as an associate photog/assistant with a few car shooters in CA and from Detroit.
Then things get crazy. Moved to South America for about 8.5 years (long story). Moved back to the US in 2004, lived in Salt Lake City (4.5 years too long--no more snow!) and am relocating back to California in 2008. Also i am now just getting back into my photography after a serious hiatus but it is my true passion, not financing, what i have been doing for the last 6.5 years. Looking to re-do my portfolios ASAP and need shots from high glamour/fashion to sports, and edgy fine art and everything in between. The digital world is amazing and it is very practical but i am an old school shooter!!! I shoot to get the shot done right the first time and do not plan on spending hours on the computer manipulating in photoshop. Any models, male and female/ make-up artists/stylists, please contact me if you would like to do some work together. I believe in a team effort and value your ideas & collaboration. I will be uploading more of my material when i dust off the archives.
My website is under construction thanks to DD in Shanghai!!! If you would like to know more about me or the projects that i plan to create, feel free to ask. Yo hablo espanol et un peu de francais aussi. firstname.lastname@example.org / gfoxskype
