Welcome to my site & thank you for stopping by. I am a San Jose/San Francisco Bay area photographic artist who specializes in male portraiture and artistic fine art nudes. I have a BFA in Fine Art with a minor in Photography.
Over the years, my camera has served as a passport into the lives of many men, allowing studies of the incredible geography of their faces and physiques. It intrigues me to discover the models true personality as well as uncovering the tender emotions often concealed. The best photographic results are proud, sensuous, confident, desirable objects of masculinity. Honest representations of what all men are capable of being.
My photographic goal is to create the BEST possible images of the model. If the session is relaxed, comfortable and POSITIVE and the model is feeling GOOD ABOUT HIMSELF...the images can be AMAZING! The most rewarding photo opportunities occur when creativity, ambition, focus, TRUST, commitment & freedom of expression are present. Having FUN is a bonus!
Unfortunately, since there is a limited market for artistic male nudes my photographic art is TFCD/TFP only. This, by no means, should stop us from creating images that are both MAGICALLY POWERFUL & HYPNOTICALLY COMPELLING. If you like what you see, please share your own ideas with me. I am open to all things NEW and EXCITING. Let's see if we can produce images that are aesthetically beautiful and, in the end, TIMELESS!
