About Me

I love creating with like-minded people as “pure productive fun” to get great results that are marketable and satisfying to all of us.

My images look pretty good to me after years of photography, 7 of them with models. It’s very rare for me to pay anyone to co-create . MM work is only trade (TF) time. My images have value in themselves and I’m sure yours do too.

BUT…
Through my meetup.com photo group, I run workshops of all kinds for models/photographers where a model can get good pay. Check the link below. Join it if you want to be one of those models. Experience helps but it’s definitely not required!

Big improvements are underway in my family room, to be completed by 7/18. That means more and better places to shoot!

I’m always looking for new approaches to make a difference somewhere, somehow. I'm currently focused on Images for Book Covers and Figure/Erotic Art in both traditional and very abstract form. See my galleries of the same names for work I've done so far. Much of it is from the past, at this time. So getting your name and best work out there, is possible through me. I’ll credit you everywhere, if it’s OK with you. Adn you credits me so we both benefit.

UPDATE
I've got an ongoing project for a new version of my 1st book (see link). I don't have a specific deadline for publication. But if we shoot and you physically qualify with 32B's or smaller, then you're definitely eligible to be in the book. See my gallery for published and unpublished images from the 1st one. Even non-models were in that book, so everyone is welcomed!
My SO WHAT If my BOOBS aren't BIG?! book

I often shoot images with nudity in them. It's what many models want to shoot and to me, it’s the ultimate in self-acceptance to have top quality photos of yourself with nothing much to hide insecurities. But I still love variety. Headshotz to expressive stuff. It’s best for diverse marketing and fun to create as a team. Ask anyone who’s tagged in my images. In sum, nudity is not required, but thoughtfully suggested.

BTW I do talk and coach a lot. Been compared to Austin Powers more than once.  hmm

I shoot far less often, more selectively, and with increasing quality, these days. I make my few dollars in studio rentals, workshops and with non-MM clients. Also please look to me for new forms of photoshoots here and through my meetup group. There’s always a better way. I'm starting up 2 by 2’s, for example. 2 photographers working with 2 models in the same place. Done here, most often. Double the results in the same amount of time and ½ the travel as normal!

See you very soon?
Inexperienced models are highly encouraged to contact me. I'd be happy to help you jumpstart your modeling career.


FEEDBACK
Here's some of the feedback I’ve gotten from the 300+ shoots that I’ve done in the last few years. Consider it, but don’t stop there. Check with any models/clients with whom I’ve worked to see if I’m legit and worth it. I trust you’ll find that I am.

“Kean is always so fun and professional in a shoot. I was relaxed the whole time plus the shots turned out great too!”

“Doug isn’t satisfied with shooting the same old stuff. He dug into his props and clothing collections and came up with concepts I would’ve never thought of.”

“I could have made some $$ shooting with a bunch of pretty crappy photographers. But I decided to trust Kean to collaborate on creative shots that I didn’t have in my port. I’m very glad I did. With his shots in my port, I’m getting better offers from other photographers now. Thank you for saving me some hassles!”

“You’re crazy funny and all your chatter (feedback? Lol) helped me relax and enjoy myself the whole time.”

“Truly professional. Pays attention to details, including my comfort level. Fair and quick delivery of my gallery and edits. One of the best experiences I’ve ever had. Thanks!”

“I showed up at your place when I was very new and totally nervous. I wasn’t sure I wanted to shoot anything but completely covered up in sweaters and stuff. I think it’s funny as hell that YOU had to be the one to tell ME to save some ideas for next time, after I was having such a good time shooting naked in your fabrics and messing with your chains. Haha.”

I’ve had tons of shoots, including a bunch with you. It amazes me how we’re able to come up with fresh funky new concepts after all this time. Shooting with you is addictive! Lol”
