Mayhem # 61722
I am currently spending my time between LA and Vegas- see "road trips" below.
I decided to re-write my "about me" in a more Mayhem-esque style. If you would like to see a more standard bio as well as a larger representative display of images, then please click on the link above to my OMP port.
Me- Internationally/Nationally published photographer¦. Blah.Blah.Blahâ¦ I'm an Artsy/Fartsy photog trapped in a CEO's body¦ I am looking for like-minded artists that are serious about creating art, pushing the boundaries and can see the value of a collaborative effort togetherâ¦ Oh yeah, I drink too much wine ! Unfortunately, I only have the privilege of working with the most persistent models that have great follow-thru skills. I often travel for several weeks at a time without email or internet/voicemail access.
You- Are totally comfortable with yourself and your body. No diva attitude, ever. You are willing to push the envelope, step to the edges of your comfort zone and do what it takes to create edgy, stunning images that will make people step back and take notice.
Not being from the "MySpace generation" I use this site in the following ways:
Friend Requests- if I accept or send you a Friends Request it means that I like your work, would like to work with you or just like your attitude.
Tags- I rarely send them, if I have something to say to you, I will send you a message. If you âTagâ me, I will take that as an indication of interest in working with me. I do enjoy reading the tags sent to me.
Messages- The MM system confuses me and I often lose track of messages.
Comments- I love getting them, rarely leave one.
Favorite quote: "I am only constrained by your limitations"
Planned for 2010 (ongoing)
âFrench Postcardsâ¿- I have a collection of in excess of 25,000 images from the late 1800's to the 1930's many from old French postcards. I am looking to recreate a series in b/w and sepia with some colorization for a coffee table book. These will be shot in a minimalist style (one or two props- mirror, dressing table, bench, sofa, etc.¦) and will include nude, semi-nude and implied nude. I am looking for models with period pieces, wigs, vintage clothing, tapestries antiques or great old locations to shoot.
âOutdoor/Nature Seriesâ¿- Looking to shoot a series of nude, semi nude and implied nude with visually dramatic landscapes. If you know of a great place feel free to contact me and share your idea.
âWedding Dress Seriesâ¿- I am looking to do a series of black and white/sepia images centered around a wedding dress. These will be implied nudes, topless and nudes shot in a soft artistic style. If you have a wedding dress or access to one, let me know and lets make some great pictures!
âHarley Davidson V-Rod Seriesâ¿ We have 3 brand new custom V-Rods (blue, red and black) available to shoot. This series will be shot in a very edgy/artistic style that will focus on the form and curves of the motorcycle and the female body (think fine art nude meets machine). These will be shot nude however they will mostly be implied as I will submit them to Harley Davidson for consideration for a high end, artistic campaign.
âGymnast/Dancer Seriesâ¿ A black and white/sepia series of implied nudes and nudes tastefully showcasing the female form in a variety of dance and gymnastic poses. If you are a dancer or gymnast and would love some great artistic shotsâ¦get in touch!
LOOKING FOR A MUSE
Are you a Model looking for some in-depth Portfolio work ? I am looking for someone that is easy to work with, open minded that would like to work together 1-2 times per month for about 6 monthsâ¦If interested, drop me an email.
TFCD- I do NOT do TFCD, I will however entertain working with like minded artists on artistic colloborations (three-four per year, time permitting) for a win/win situation. This means if you can contribute to one of my art projects, I am willing to help you with some images for your portfolio (even if it is beyond the scope of the art project)
Upcoming Road Trips- Las Vegas (come spend one or two days in the Desert and lets make some art)...Meet me there? Hitch a ride? Lets discuss. Also Yosemite and Monument Valley.
NEW! Shock and Awe! series- Not for the faint of heart, if you REALLY want to push limits, please inquire.
