About Me

Hello fellow creatives. I work as a traveling freelance photographer and part-time photography instructor with a local college. I enjoy my creative jobs as well as photo shooting for gallery work and human interest stories. I am always looking for new muses but currently only accepting paid or very limited TFP work. Contact me if you are interested in working with me. Let's create beautiful art !

My Stuff:
My name is Hok. I am an artist specializing in photo-illustrations, painting and sculpting. I have been interested in the human form ever since my figure study art classes in college. My passion and respect for the beauty of the body, soul and spirit has only matured over the decades as I continue to learn more.

My Influences:
The human condition... Love, hate, sensuality, pride, humility, sexuality, joy, death, etc. are themes that never get outdated. The classical artist of old understood this message. It is the reason why I am influenced by classical painters, photographers and statues of ages past. Their work is timeless... never outdated.

Our Stuff:
I am always seeking artistic models to help with collaborative projects that will benefit each others artistic pursuits and career. Although much of my work is fee based I do consider TFP (time for print - trade outs) projects for select opportunities. Call me for rates or if my work inspires you, ask about my current model calls. Because much of what I do requires intensive prep work, staging and materials before hand, I am limited to the amount of time and amount of models I can work with on any given project. Traveling models are welcomed but may be subject to fees, schedules and current TFP opportunities. When I have paid commercial work, I will contact a desired model specific to the assignment.

Your Stuff:
Each photo session is motivated by a certain artistic goal and will be outlined in detail before hand. All interested models should like my style of work and be comfortable in such photo settings. Some (not all) of my work may require nude, semi nude, draped and body treatments. Such treatments may include clay, body paint, period style clothing and light painting. Models are welcome to bring an assistant to the sessions provided they are supportive of the artistic goals and willing to help if called upon.

*** I will treat you with integrity, honor and as a fellow artist... please do the same with me ***

Current Projects Needing Artistic Models:

I am currently seeking models with an artistic desire for the following themes:

1.) Custom, retro-classic projects - we photo-illustrate a model in a classical, fine-art setting. Usually, we have a painting in mind which we are trying to replicate or have been inspired by.

2.) "Living Statue" models - We work with body paints, clay and pigments to make a person look like a statue. Its very messy... but you will have a great time!  Curious, ask for more info.

3.) Thematic stories - These are sessions in which we are trying to tell a story visually with photo-illustration. Usually done in order to put together a gallery showing around different parts of the country. Some of the works may be published as a collection at a later date.

4.) Pregnant models for artistic light painting sessions, time exposures and body studies for gallery work.

5.) Barbie Doll look sessions - Ask me for more info on this....

If you desire something outside of the box, then email me and lets discuss ideas.
