"If you're afraid of living and your holding on... you'll see devils tearing your life apart. But if you've made you're peace... then the devils are really angels... freeing you from the earth..."
The primary emblem of the feminine in Tibetan Buddhism is the Dakini, or "Sky-dancer," a semi-wrathful spirit-woman who manifests in visions, dreams, and meditation experiences.
Western scholars and interpreters of the Dakini, influenced by feminist goddess theology, have shaped a contemporary critique of Tibetan Buddhism in which the Dakini is seen as a psychological "shadow," a feminine savior, or an objectified product of patriarchal fantasy.
However and perhaps more accurately, the Dakini symbolizes levels of personal realization: the sacredness of the body, both female and male; the profound meeting point of body and mind in meditation; the visionary realm of ritual practice; and the empty, spacious qualities of mind itself.
I would like to extend my gratitude to all the people/models that I have collaborated with... without you beautiful and interesting images could not be made. I sometimes think we photographers get too much credit... like directors in movies and such... it is a collaborative effort!
TFP: after the shoot I will develop the pictures which usually takes 2 or so weeks depending on how busy I am and how many images were taken. I usually supply around 20 images from several different looks. This will be high quality web images... If you are interested in having images printed for your book, let me know. I can upload images to my website and you can order prints and have them mailed directly to you. Prints are very high quality and I will be provided to you for cost (around 2.99 for 9x12). If you would like more and would like some additional retouching, let me know and we can work something out.
I shoot all images in RAW. This means I have to develop each and every picture - which is very time consuming (sometimes over 300 images)... Not to mention, I often experiment with saturation, tone, bw, and have been doing a lot of double exposure stuff... etc...with that said, I spend HOURS and HOURS developing the shoot...you will get very high quality images from a talented photographer ... So please, unless you want the basic image, please be patient when waiting to receive your images.
You will feel safe and will have an enjoyable experience if you work with me. I have some excellent references from models on MM... ask me and I can refer you to them.
ESCORTS??? NOPE... HERE IS ONE REASON WHY:

A lot of my personal / creative work is "dark", "moody" and mostly nude, however I am also available for weddings, beauty & glamour as well as head shots and portrait photography - all for reasonable prices.
