PHOTOGRAPHY blends my appreciation of beauty with my drive to create. Photography for me is more than simply capturing beautiful images. It is about unveiling a hidden connection, exposing a special talent, or viewing a subject in special light or from a unique perspective with the ultimate aim of creating images that possess a SOUL.
I shoot on location as well as in my studio located in Somerville. I prefer collaborating with my models as well as with MUA's, body painters and other artists to help realize a shared artistic vision.
Whether you want to express yourself artistically, add edgy spin to your port or just simply want gorgeous photos, contact me. Limited TFCD available especially if you have an unusual talent (ballet, dancing, or gymnastics), possess cool wardrobe, or have a unique concept to offer.
ATTENTION: This fall I am looking for models to collaborate on the following:
- Ballet, Gymnastics or Yoga pose at sunset
- Fitness shoot for magazine submission
- Grand piano/formal dress (must be a piano player)
- Rooftop - edgy Glamour in the moonlight
- Bodypaint - several very unique concepts
- In the Rain
- In the corporate boardroom
- Dancer light painting

PLANNING - Shoots are expressions of art; concepts are usually collaborations. To get best results, we need to have a 1-hour pre-shoot discussion... usually several days before the scheduled shoot.
RELEASE FORMS - You will need to sign a standard model release form. If you are under 18, your parent or legal guardian must sign as well as be present at the shoot. Contact me for details.
a. If it is a TFCD shoot, we get a joint right to use the photos. You get 8 or more high resolution Photoshop enhanced images.
b. If you pay me, you have an exclusive right to the photos.
"ESCORTS" - I do allow escorts at photo shoots as long as your escort understands that they are not part of the shoot and will not in any way disturb the creative energy flow between the model and photographer.
PREPARATION - If you are a novice, I encourage you to browse through photographer and model portfolios and mimic poses and expressions which you feel comfortable with. Remember that a wide range of expressions is just as important as your wardrobe, poses or physical beauty. Incorporate any special talents or passions you have. In time, you will develop your own style. Most importantly, relax, be yourself, and have fun!
