I am a Photographer/Painter. I got into Photography only 2 years ago in highschool in order to add a little bit extra into my art. I found it to be a hell of a lot more intresting than expected and kept going with it. Darkroom photography became a passion of mine rather quickly.
I was very opposed to digital for a long while. Unfortunately this is a digital world we are living in and I had to get over all that and eventually bought a Nikon D50. I'm still trying to develop a style and I know that takes years to fall into. For now I just do what I think looks beautiful and experiment with diffrent lighting, learning a little more each day.
As you can tell from my paintings (those who know me or have seen my myspace) I am rather obsessed with things that are ugly. So you might notice that it is carried over into my photography from time to time.
MODELS: I don't do pretty myspace pictures. I will tell you what the shoot is about and if you do not like my ideas then tell me right then and there. I will not take glamour shots of you. I am sick of getting to the shoot and models telling me that they dont look good with the make-up and costume I have them wear. It is insulting. I don't like common "pretty" I'm sorry (you will never see pretty flowers or sunsets here!!!). That being said, if you are a very open minded person then we should be able to work great together! You can rest assured that everything I do will be tasteful. I will never ask for nudes. Implied nudity at most! I've gotten all of that out of my system ;D
I'm still working on getting a decent portfolio so please bare with me [img]images/smilies/smile.png[/img]
Also a virus took a big stash of my photos around October of 2007. It was very sad. Though those shoots were GREAT practice. I am constantly evolving so expect bizzare things comming from me this year.
Eventually I would like to do very high fashion shoots with a horror twist to them. Practice makes perfect!
If you are ever in the Tampa Florida area and you would like to model for me just let me know. Males and Females of all shapes and sizes are welcome, just let me review your profile and tell you what I have in mind and if I can work with you. I don't have a car currently so perhaps that could be an inconvinience.
Also, I will not give you a whole CD of the shoot. I will pick the 3 or 4 best shots, edit them and send you either the high resolution file or 8" x 10" prints for portfolios as compensation. (This is to make sure that my name isn't pasted on something that I don't believe full heartedly on. I decide which pictures I like from the shoot and I edit them.)
Thank you very much for visiting my site. Please feel free to take a look at my art profile on Myspace!
