Received a recent review of my work that I appreciated: "It's really versatile, pretty, goofy, and strong." I think that pretty much sums it up but if you'd like a little more information, please do read on.
I'm looking to meet up with other creative folks for the art, love, and fun of making photos. In models, I look for energy, personality, and a naturalness in front of the camera. A quiet energy or a loud one, either can work well. Please let me know your interests, thoughts, and insights. I enjoy a good collaboration. It's a cliche that a photographer should be trying to express an inner vision, but a model should be trying to express their inner vision as well.
Really looking to make art and beautiful photos, not so much commerce. Please know it's not in my nature to copy anyone's work or shoot in a particular genre. I'm trying to create evocative work, photographs that look like we've stumbled into the middle of a story, or a shot that reveals something of the personality of the model.
I absolutely love shooting film and Polaroids, and it's mostly what I've been working with lately. That said, it's my belief that the equipment used is absolutely meaningless, the only thing that matters is if a good photograph was taken. An artist works in whatever medium appeals, and makes something meaningful with it. A hundred years from now no one will care if you used film or digital, natural light or light bulbs, or your iPhone. It's art or it's not, it works or it doesn't.
Thank you for reading down this far, you exhibit great perseverance, a quality I admire. I hope we get a chance to meet and make great art, or at least some pretty pictures!
P.S. This is my ugly mug, which should explain why I generally stay on the viewfinder side of a camera
