I have been a photographer for 37 years and have always focused my attention of landscape, sports, and aviation photography. Now as I approach retirement I have had a change in what interests me, I now have a passion to develop my portrait photography skills. In particular I am concentrating on vintage Hollywood and Pin-Up photography and I need a muse to help me develop not only the posing and lighting techniques but also so I can achieve the Post Processing style that I want for my photos. I would entertain any style as though that would benefit the model as I do not want to stifle creativity and I do want to experience genres that expand my thought process. I also am convinced that I can use photography to influence the self-worth of individuals based upon the tenants of photographic therapy and plan to use this at every opportunity to build self-esteem and personal confidence in my subjects.
