The first thing you should know is that the pictures in my portfolio are not photographs. They're paintings and drawings. I only bring this up because most of the comments I get say things like "Nice Photo!"... so I never know if I should take that as a compliment or not.
I've been painting and drawing for a long time. Several decades, in fact... which is longer than you've likely been alive if you're a 20-something-year-old model reading this. This, right now, isn't my job. This is a hobby. I don't have to be "professional" and that's precisely what I like about it. If I ever shifted my goal from painting to selling paintings, I'd be stressful about HAVING to create to support my lifestyle, and I'd have to care what's salable to the public. I paint because I want to, not because I have to.
I'll be the first to admit, that I'm not a great photographer. In fact, I suck at it. That's why I don't share the photos I take. I'd rather the world marvel at my talent as a painter than focus on what a crappy photographer I am. Photography is a means to an end, so I don't focus on getting better at it.
I normally would classify myself as a "Guy with a Camera", but that term has fallen into ill-repute on this site. So, I'll say I'm a "Guy with a Canvas"
So, if you want to model for me (and why wouldn't you want to?) here's some things you may wanna know:
Oh... I occasionally have art shows around the US and Canada, and if the right person inquires, I've been known to sell my pieces... or trade them for tattoos... or pay for sushi with them. But ultimately, I want them in the hands of people who'll appreciate them. If that's you, gimme a shout.
