I have been working professionally as a photographer since 1991, and after working for other people for many of those years, I began my current business here in Jacksonville in 2004. My specialties have evolved over those years and now the majority of my business is Maternity & Glamour.
I had a studio in the Avenues Mall for a couple of years but recently moved to share a studio with a colleague on Hendricks Avenue, just south of San Marco. My focus is on creating high-end, heirloom quality images for my clients. I am not cheap, and my years of professional experience and education show in my images.
I've found, however, that as much as I love what I do for my clients, I do miss shooting for myself. That's why I thought I'd look to connect to others here on MM to work together to create some amazing images.
With my clients, I am working for them to create the images that they want. There are some that give me artistic license to try new ideas, but most have definite boundaries that I would never want to cross. I'm looking for open individuals willing to push the edge a little. Must be comfortable with your own body, and by that I mean comfortable with nudity. I respect models that don't shoot nudes, but if I'm going to shoot for fun and for free I prefer not to have the restraints of clothing. I also prefer to only accept friend requests from models wanting to work with me and not just admirers. I completely understand wanting TFCD to make it worth your time.
The images I create with the collaboration of MM models may direct my professional work, so I would need releases to use the images in advertising.
I am also open to models who would like to work with me to achieve some of their own ideas, but if it doesn't fit something that I'm interested in, then my regular fees would apply.
Bachelors and Masters of Arts Degrees in Photography from Purdue University.
Certified Professional Photographer from PPA.
PPSNF 2007 Photographer of the Year.
PPSNF Board of Directors since 2006.
As mentioned above, I earned the 2007 Photographer of the Year honor from the Professional Photographers Society of North Florida.
I've also earned awards at the State and National level for my professional work.
When I was in graduate school, my artistic images were accepted into every juried exhibition that I entered and I received awards in every one. I also have a print in the permanent collection of the Greater Lafayette Museum of Art in Indiana.
