About me
Wander where you will. Find what you find. Keep the worthy friends, the others won't mind. Wear your spirit openly and never learn to lie. There's much good to do here before we say goodbye.

NUDITY: I do NOT shoot nude! Please do not ask! I always remain fully clothed. I will have an escort at all my shoots for my protection! Okay, of course I'm being a smart ass, but hey, these sites are structured the way they are so you can CHECK REFERENCES before you decide to work with someone. Take the time to do your homework and check people out before you take the easy way out. Some of us professionals who have worked very hard for years to earn good reputations in our industry might be offended by the implication that we cannot be trusted. Think about it.

Although you may see artistic nudes on my portfolio from time to time (well, okay, most of the time smile please know that posing nude is never a requirement for working with me. I've never asked a model to pose nude or to shoot fetish, but having said that, I'm always honored and flattered by the trust placed in me by those who come to me for this type of work.

TFP: I am NOT a part time hobbyist. I am NOT building my portfolio. This is my day job and I do make my living with my cameras, and yes, I DO get paid for my work. If all of my work was free, then there would be no studio, lights, editing or printing equipment... well.. no SouthBound. I pay models for images ONLY when I'm being paid by my clients to shoot you. Be realistic. Look at my work and if you think your look and my skills would add to the diversity and quality of BOTH of our books, please contact me. Otherwise, my rates are more reasonable than you might think smile Did you know there was a time when aspiring models actually hired a good photographer to create quality images for their portfolios?? Is the new norm cell phone snapshots for your facebook page? Really? If this is true, I refuse to conform. If I were a painter, would you ask me to paint your house for free? Always looking for video models (paid and no porn).

I am not a celebrity nor do I want to be. My work isn't about me. It's about you and what we create through our collaboration. It's all about the work and the result. Models, I can promise you, The Owner of The Truth about this industry is not on this site. Beware of those who pretend to be.

Art is subjective. So why are there so many experts? Do you really need someone to tell you what is beautiful? Is the 80 year old Native American man, bent and wrinkled with age as beautiful as the perfectly formed nude female? No, if all you see is the physical. But look closer. See the character, the honor, the integrity, the wisdom. See the humor in his eyes because he knows things you don't. See the pain he conquered. Now capture all THAT with your camera and tell me which image brings a tear to your eye. If it touches you, it is art.

Take care...

Don

NOTICE TO RETOUCHERS: I do ALL my own retouch and editing. I also do retouch for other photographers as part of my overall business. Please do not solicit me for this type of work. Tagging my page with these types of self-serving solicitations are not welcome and will be deleted.
