I am so proud to have again been voted Model Mayhem Photographer of the Year. To win it once was truly amazing but to have now won it twice is way beyond my wildest imaginings. My thanks to all who voted and a very special thanks to all the wonderful models and amazingly creative people with whom I have had the privilege of working with during the past two years.
People say I have a certain style - the truth is that I do it my way because I don't know any other way.
I am honoured to have been selected for this list of approved pro & semi-pro photographers who have agreed to dedicate at least one day each month to indiscriminately help new models in their regions develop their portfolios.
I try to keep humour in my life and in my work - for me it is the most essential ingredient
"Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand. - Albert Einstein"
"There is no beauty without strangeness" - Karl Lagerfeld
My thanks also to Myles Boisen (#1492997) for telling me that the original quote came from one of my countrymen:
"There is no excellent beauty that hath not some strangeness in the proportion" - Sir Francis Bacon (1561 - 1626), "Of Beauty"
FACEON is a high end fashion and beauty magazine and its well worth a visit to their website:
