(...Insert long, pretentious artist statement... )
I create art with the human form. Mostly photography, though I dabble in mixed media.
I work with models of all sizes, genders, experience levels, etc., so if you want to come help me create something new, please let me know!
My main focus is exhibition--I enjoy nothing more than seeing a real print on a gallery wall. Online, I update Tumblr regularly (here, not so much).
I'd love to be able to pay models to support their work, but I can't. I can offer TFP -- signed prints. For traveling models, hosting is often possible.
I'll be shooting underwater again here in Beaumont starting around May. Possible travel for 2015 includes Dallas, Austin, New Orleans, Knoxville, San Diego, and Portland/Seattle.
