If you see me in the forums, I am probably avoiding work. I find the forums curiously addictive, and I have learned many valuable things from the folks on this site. I am constantly amazed by the talents and humbled by the generosity of the MM community.
I am a freelance photo assistant and I am proud to work for many great commercial photographers. If you are coming to Florida, I would love to work on your crew. In recent years I have assisted on projects for:

Did I mention I am learning Photoshop? I use my MM portfolio to get feedback on my humble efforts.
I worked for 8 years in a product studio. I have a strong background in commercial studio product photography, but after 8 years of industrial box fans and juice bottles I would like to do more with humans. I love to shoot musicians, athletes and stop action setups.
ABOUT MODELS: I am primarily interested in stop action setups. I am currently looking for models with skills in dance, martial arts and sports. If you think you would look good hanging off a basketball rim or leaping like a ninja, please introduce yourself.
ABOUT "FRIEND REQUESTS" and "TAGS": I don't honor random friend requests. People listed here as Friends are people I have personally worked with, or at least had some deep conversations. They are good eggs and I recommend them without reservation. Similarly, I am not a tag hound. If I tagged your photo, it means I genuinely liked your work. Please don't feel obligated to post "Thanks for the tag" tags.
