Thank you for visiting my port.
It will become obvious, very quickly, that this is not your average MM port.
Traditionally images, where the focus is on the female foot, have been labeled or classified as "fetish". I don't really consider the images in my port "fetish" in the classic sense; although I can understand their appeal to those with a foot fetish.
I have a thread going for the past few years in the "Off Topic" forum devoted to "Pretty Feet". If you are a photographer or model and you have images that fit the catagory, then please feel free to contribute to the thread. The link to the thread is as follows:

I received a thoughtful comment from a fellow photographer here on MM and I believe he summed up my vision very well. He said:

This series speaks well to your interest in the female foot as an aesthetic object. You are true here to your stated variation from more typical or commonly occurring representations and reproductions of feet. Your composition directs attention exclusively or primarily to feet in your images, and some of the cropping or framing--deliberately "non-academic", I believe--makes the female foot as aesthetic all the more salient in this (and several other of your) images."
My goal is to take images, that focus on the female foot, to a new level. No matter what the subject of the image is, it is most important to me that the image have artistic integrity. I don't always succeed, but that is my goal. So much fetish is "dark" in nature....I want my images to convey fun....a sense of care-free-ness (is that a word?) and eroticism.
That being said, this port is dedicated to the beauty to be found in the female foot. It is my hope that you enjoy your visit to my port and if compelled, leave a constructive comment.
TO ALL THE WONDERFUL MM MODELS OUT THERE: If you feel you have pretty feet then please contact me as I am always interested in creative collaborations. Message me with your ideas and lets see what we can cook up.
My "TF" philosophy is: Shoots are never really free. My time is valuable, as is yours..........so we both need to be professional and considerate, prepared and on time. I have had some models show up to shoots unprepared and with an attitude that they have nothing invested so what do they have to lose. REMEMBER, TF shoots have to benefit both parties. If confronted with an idea I am in no need of, I will still shoot it for you......and I would hope that you would extend to me the same courtesy.
Pet Peeves: Badly manicured finger and toe nails (especially if you know that we are doing a foot shoot.....FYI......I will pay for the pedicure). I can direct anyone but hate spending hours in photoshop painting nails. All I ask that we all act like professionals :-)
And while working with a complete crew is any one's dream, I have no problem with individuals using their own skills such as make-up application and coordinating wardrobe as long as the end result works.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions you have.
Live long and prosper my friends.
