About me
Bay Area to mid August, then back to SoCal... Paid and barter/TFP projects considered. Time is, as ever, kinda tight, so I'd appreciate contact ASAP with specific suggestions for shooting dates/times.

As part of various arts, queer, kink, 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.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

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

My business model is due for a change. For now: I charge a base rate of $350 Canadian/American dollars if you want to keep exclusive rights to the images. Credit cards and cash accepted. That gets you an unrushed afternoon of shooting w pro gear; resulting in 150 or more images chosen by me from which you may select any 40-50 for retouching and delivery. Time between shoot and delivery varies, but if you're looking for instant turnaround I'm not your guy.

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.  More likely to pursue TFC than to hire for my own work. When I do hire it's by the day or half-day rather than by the hour - 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.

My site's down for an overhaul and a re-thinking, and has stayed down long enough that I'm no longer promising it'll be up soon. See examples in my gallery. Please note that examples I post here OR on my site are not particularly representative of the raunchy, ridiculous, penetration-&-public-sex content I shoot most often.

Also casting for a couple very silly TFC word-play projects involving names: if your regular working name is Jackie/Jaquie or Norma I'd love to hear from you.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

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 modelling/image use, am not seeking or accepting exchanges for other services. Thank you!
