About Me

I am an art theory and aesthetics professor fascinated with the magic of photographic 'narrative' in personal theatre / fictional documentaries.
   I work with modest means.  My lighting is natural or from a one-lamp / flash source.  My 'mise-en-scene' shoots are impromptu ;  my studio locations are simple and makeshift.  My beautiful female models present themselves 'ad aperturam' [Latin: "wherever the book opens"] -- that is, they present themselves AS THEY CHOOSE  -- THEIR pose, gesture, theme, wardrobe, etc.  ...  I offer a camera-eye, a spark of energy and encouragement.  These (empowered) portrait images are then juxtaposed to images of 'abandon' (e.g. ravaged mother-nature, derelict buildings, scenes of accident or 'mayhem', ...  picture a 'Beauty and the Beast' type of scenario).  Snippets of word or text add an element of discursive meaning.
   I like to think of my overall creative process as 'butoh-esque' in essence ['butoh' from Japanese to approximately translate: "to pull close to the ground"].  My models express themselves as closely as possible to their true inner being ; my cityscape / landscape views of 'abandon' are mirrors onto the reality of current socio-environmental situations.
   This photo-art-documentary project, entitled "Qu'Appelle", is destined for book publication and gallery exhibition.  I have my scenes of 'abandon' in hand.  I come to MM to pair those images with photos of creative, energetic, vivacious female models as captured from unusual angles, in 'exotic' setting, and/or in 'artsy' circumstance.
   In compensation, I offer prints, artwork studies, and/or honorarium (i.e. $) plus my abundant appreciation and acknowledged written-credit for participation in the art project.
   Bring on your best image-magic and I'll promise to deliver another 'edge' to your portfolio.
