About me
NOTE: Scroll down, I have a casting call up right now! smile

I'm an artist who works in photography (and, increasingly, photography-based mixed media). I'm drawn to the nude form as a subject of art in itself, but my work also uses the Figure to convey my fascination with the human experience on the edge between natural and man-made environments.

Aside from having fun meeting and working with other creative people, my goal on every shoot is to create exhibition-worthy pieces that convey my viewpoint as an artist.

I'm always looking to work with new people, and I try to shoot a few times a month. If you're interested in working together, please get in touch!

(Please follow me on Tumblr, I update it much more often.)


http://home.tallent.us/postedphotos/bb2.png Underwater shoots will start this year whenever Texas stops feeling like frickin' Alaska. :sigh:

http://home.tallent.us/postedphotos/bb2.png I'm only looking for models who are comfortable with the sort of work you see in my portfolio. I don't do fashion, swimwear, etc. Anonymous posing is fine if you prefer.

http://home.tallent.us/postedphotos/bb2.png I can't pay you to model. I do offer limited-edition prints in trade (TFP). We also host traveling models occasionally.

http://home.tallent.us/postedphotos/bb2.png If I send you a friend request, it means I'd like to work with you. If I don't send a message along with it, I'm just being shy.

http://home.tallent.us/postedphotos/bb2.png Local shoots are booked via email, I mostly use this site when I travel.

http://home.tallent.us/postedphotos/bb2.png I shoot underwater from May through August here in Beaumont. Strong swimming skills are not needed, just "don't-drown" skills smile. I'll train you for the rest.

http://home.tallent.us/postedphotos/bb2.png I'm looking for more male models. And full-figured women. And older models. And anyone else who can help me continue to diversify my work.

http://home.tallent.us/postedphotos/bb2.png Possible travel in 2014 includes NOLA, Austin, LA, NYC, Miami, Seattle, and Portland.
