We are represented by Varnish Fine Art in San Francisco -- http://varnishfineart.com
-- and will have on-going works presented there. We will also have a solo show with ZeroFriends in October 2013.
WHAT'S THE BIG IDEA:
I occasionally put up castings for our more grand projects, so keep an eye out for those (these are the big concept stuff that book weeks ahead of time). We can only do about one of these a month or so, and right now we are working toward a solo show in SF focused on our artist series (which we rarely need models for). Our sets go up, get shot, and then go away and become something else.
PLEASE NOTE: if you're passing through or just stumbled across us and want to work together it will not be on one of these projects. I truly appreciate the hit up to collaborate and keep folders of people interested in working with us, but on short notice it will probably be on a side project like this below ...
R U CURIOUS:
I'm filling holes in my schedule with low-light nude studies. The running themes are dark and dissociative. If you're popping through town (or live in the neighborhood and are just 'curious'), drop me a line and we'll make some crazy-cool shit. Like in all of our other work, I look for you to commit physically and mentally to the concept and have an touchstone of honesty to your work. I strive to find dark characters and cloak them in a light story. The lead time on schedule will probably be short (like a week). And I always have a relaxed (but focused) atmosphere on set. The results of these are in the Tortuous portfolio.

I'm here to meet other like-minded, hard working artists who go all out to make it happen ... people who have big ideas and are not afraid to push limits.
Being intrigued by the unusual and unique, the work looks within the darkness and shadows. I enjoy capturing beautiful people (inside and out) who prefer to be bizarre and ugly (inside and out.) Together we create places that don't exist and quite possibly shouldn't ...
Open to VERY selectively test with wardrobe stylists & designers, MUAs, hair stylists and models. It never hurts to ask, but I'm usually buried in one project or another. So I'll say up front that I'm sorry if I can't reply.
