About me
I took my first class in 1983, and haven't set the camera down since. I have been doing fetish and erotic imagery for the last ten years. I grew up in Philadelphia, PA, but moved to Los Angeles in February of 2004.

I shoot film. I do own a 12 and a 14 megapixel pro digital SLR, and can provide you with digital images, but my own portfolio is made up entirely of film. I shoot B&W, which I process and print myself in my own darkroom, and cross process slide film to obtain color images like the main image here. So, don't be suprised ;-) I also don't pay models, so don't ask me to. If a paying project ever comes my way, I'll be more than happy to spread the wealth.

I also do not do a lot of retouching. I know how to (I've been using PS since 2.0), I just think that people need to look like people, not plastic. Your scar/mole/etc makes you who you are. I am a photographer, not a graphic designer.

While I have shot adult work, you will notice most of my work isn't explicit. I like to leave something to the imagination. I love the work Jeanloup Sieff and Dahmane have done, and I feel the my work reflects theirs, but with my own twist.

I recently moved back to the east coast. I am looking forward to shooting in new places and working with new people. I am currently living just outside of Baltimore, MD.

I do allow chaperones, as long as they do not interfere with the shoot.

The book is done and now available! A Decade Exposed is now available for purchase. 114 pages covering the last decade of my work. To purchase, go here: http://www.blurb.com/bookstore/detail/303697

Currently, I am free almost anytime to shoot. Feel free to contact me if you are interested in working together. I am also available for video work.
