About Me

Just back from a couple months of traveling. Sorry if I missed you this time around. Come visit me? Presume my listed location is accurate. Paid and barter/TFP projects considered wherever I am. Time is, as ever, kinda tight, so I appreciate contact with specific suggestions for shooting dates/times.
My site's finally back up after a very extended overhaul and re-thinking. Feedback welcome. Please note that examples I post here OR on my site are not particularly representative of the raunchy, ridiculous, *clearly pornographic* content I shoot most often.

As part of various arts, queer, kink, activist-ish, sex work and sex-positive communities for most of my life, part of what I have to offer models and clients is a planning/shooting experience grounded in a creative, compassionate, politically engaged, consent-aware and cheerfully perverse ethos. You've been warned. :-)

CLIENTS: If you can imagine it, I can make it happen. If you can't imagine it yet, let's talk. If you're seeking unique, hot, funny, intense, well-crafted pictures and a relaxed, respectful interaction, drop me a line. I welcome collaborative processes, listen well, give very clear direction and particularly enjoy work that offers conceptual or technical challenges.

How explicit or sexual clients' images get is entirely up to you. My emphasis here on smutty content does not make me unwilling or unqualified to shoot in other genres.

Part of what I bring to the production side of the job is a very experienced eye, strong, clear direction and a familiarity with many of the markets/audiences for which your images may be destined. To post-production I bring 20+ years of experience with advanced digital image creation/editing.

Expert colour correction, cropping and image retouching are part of the standard package. Retouching for me is about intensifying light & colour, making good makeup, costuming and props look even better, disappearing blemishes, emphasizing foreground, simplifying background, removing a tattoo or two if you ask in advance and making already shiny images shine more. More complex image alteration tasks (replacing an entire background, compositing multiple images, etc.) welcome at an additional fee subject to some conditions:

I'm not a fan of doing photoshop work that would be major cosmetic plastic surgery if it were happening in the real world. Just because I *can* make somebody appear dramatically younger, thinner, etc., doesn't mean I think it's usually a good idea to make those changes. My $100+ per image additional charge for extreme vanity photo alterations of this nature reflects both the level of quality I offer and my bias against doing so in most cases. (Alternately, significant alterations that give you tentacles, tattoos, an extra nipple or otherwise interesting additions I will offer *deep* discounts on.)

Further charges may apply for longer shoots, specialized equipment, travel or other costs. For new clients or any client booking requiring travel beyond local public transportation I require a non-refundable deposit of $100 at the time of scheduling.

MODELS: of all genders, ability levels, body types and ethnicities welcome. Current personal projects lean toward public nudity, explicit hardcore action, weird art and/or heavily messed-with, drawn-on or overprocessed photos. Not yet on Zivity, but open to pursuing an exploratory few shoots for that venue with the right people. Sometimes I hire, sometimes it's TFC. Either way I prefer to work in blocks at least 2 hours long - it's about getting the shots, not watching the clock. This makes shooting with me intense and sometimes exhausting - be warned. I like to think it also makes for quality work.

For the sake of clarity: I look elsewhere for dates. Though I have performed in some of my own work and my lovers are also sometimes in my work, my presence on MM is uncomplicatedly about connecting with models, clients and performers to make imagery in which I am NOT a co-performer.

Making very sexually charged work requires better boundaries than average; means being particularly aware of not over-sexualizing working relationships. I charge my clients real dollars and/or trade for modeling/image use, am not seeking or accepting exchanges for other services. Thank you!
