My goal in life is to learn something new EVERY day, and aside from my photography career, I work a very intense full time job, which keeps me on my toes. But, also helps to fullfill my learning crave!
As a photographer, I've been a freelancer in the motorcycle and automotive industries for nearly 20 years, and I've had numerous features published in regional, national, and international magazines, including THUNDER ROADS (Iowa) BIKER, EASYRIDERS, IN THE WIND, AMERICAN IRON (U.S.) and OzBIKE (Australia) just to name a few. I've also worked with many custom motorcycle builders and parts suppliers and manufacturers for various commercial projects through out the industry.
In 2011 I started publishing my own "pin-up" themed calendar, featuring lovely models on antique motorcycles and vintage hot rods. In the spring of 2012 I followed that up with the completion of my 2013 calendar already, and both can be seen at:
Most of my work is done within the Midwest, and the majority of it being shot in Iowa, Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Missouri. I make the annual trip to Sturgis, South Dakota every August for the Sturgis Rally, and spend most of my time there covering the event and shooting various features for publications.
Along with photographing motorcycles, I ride and work on them on a regular basis, all while creating my own custom bikes. In short, I pretty much live and breath motorcycles.
I'm continually looking for new faces to model for various published projects, and welcome any inquiries from models that might have an interest in this style. Most shoots require bikini and lingerie style clothing and accessoreis, and although some shoots also require topless shots, not all of my projects do, so if bikini / lingerie is your limit, drop me a line anyway.
Roughly 50 magazine covers.
Hundreds of features and event articles.
Gallery and art exhibits in Rapid City, South Dakota, Villa Park, Illinois, and Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Commercial work for companies like Black Magic Customs, J&P Cycles, Hollywood Customs, Fortune Cycle, Sleepy's Cycle, Pro-formance V-Twin, ABATE of Iowa, and ABATE of Wisconsin, just to name a few.
