"God loved the birds and invented trees. Man loved the birds and invented cages." Jacques Deval
I have limited availability for the remainder of the year (October and into early November 2013) and enjoy indoor and select outdoor location work.
Please contact me if you anticipate travel into the Pittsburgh area. I prefer to schedule full days and shoot at a leisurely pace.
My work is on exhibit in galleries and held in private collections throughout the US, Canada, Germany, Belgium, Scotland, Italy, London, France, Australia, Portugal, Switzerland, New Caledonia, Netherlands, Poland, Greece, Russia, and Hong Kong. I strive to create something edgy and uniquely different... and enjoy working with models who are creative, expressive, and wish to add breadth to their portfolios.
"In the photographs themselves there's a definite contrast between the figures and the location - I like that kind of California backyard look; clapboard houses, staircases outdoors. It's that I don't like white paper backgrounds. A woman does not live in front of white paper. She lives on the street, in a motor car, in a hotel room". Helmut Newton
"an artist must find his expression closely linked to his individual experience or else follow in the old grooves resulting in lifeless forms". Mark Tobey

About the Pittsburgh art community:
"In naming Pittsburgh among the "2012 Best of the World," National Geographic cited the city's "wealth of fine art and architecture" as one of its main draws. The Huffington Post recommended a trip to Pittsburgh, saying, "From ballet to world-class art museums, a marvelous symphony and a healthy theater scene, Pittsburgh has just about everything you could want a city to have, arts-wise." Stories in CNBC, Forbes Magazine, The New York Times, The Washington Post and US News and World Report, among others, have cited Pittsburgh's thriving arts community as a reason to visit or relocate here."
