About Me


Male models in the Midwest are invited to join this photo group http://www.meetup.com/Chicago-Nude-Male-Photography/. We have two tracks - a Career group of men who want to expand their portfolios as models or photographers. And a Community group which includes photographers of all levels and men of all kinds who want to get naked for the camera. We encourage everyone to check it out - from beginner to veteran.

If you are in great shape with a great smile, reach me by sending an email. I may be able to pay you for shoots here and there, and I may be able to do TFP on occassion.  But - surprise, surprise - you can always hire me to shoot whatever you need - men alone or men together, or any other variation. My base rate is $100 for a 60 minute session.

My men together project often brings strangers together so I can photograph the erotic charge between then.   

My work always begins with the eyes, to find the truth and honesty within. If we are doing a full portfolio shoot, we will do a headshot, then body work, and nudes if you like. I am comfortable with both artistic and erotic nudes, and especially like partnering models who will look great together.

I shoot lots of headshots for artists, actors, and for business people of all kinds.

I am always interested in outdoor projects in the Great Lakes States - Indiana Dunes, southern WI.

Qualities I seek in a model are strength and vulnerability, great eyes, great body,and great soul.  I feel my job is bring out the beauty and strength of every man I work with.

If you have a great look, please say hello. And men who may never have modeled in any way - they just want the experience of bring in front of a camera - let me know if you want to give it a try.

I want people to enjoy your beauty and your strength, your eyes and smile, and find a bit of your soul.  I hope viewers will have time to appreciate the photos, and also get a sense of your personality.  After all, its not only your work in the gym that needs to shine - its your smile and inner beauty.

I have been shooting for many years both commercially and privately, and I am always looking for models who have the look, the energy, and most of the all smile to make them unbeatable.

I work in a small space on Chicago's north side that has great free parking, and excellent public transportation from the Red Line or Clark Street Bus.

Lets do it!
