I NO LONGER ACCEPT FRENDS REQUESTS FROM RETOUCHERS!! I'm quite capable of doing my own retouching.
“If you can’t dazzle them with data, then baffle them with bullshit”.
I was a student enrolled in a nine month entry level computer programming course when I first heard the above statement and it occurred during a class on interviewing for a job. Many artists seem compelled to write artists statements for the purpose of convincing the viewer(s), or maybe themselves, that there is some deep philosophical, or perhaps spiritual reason for the way that they artistically interpret any given subject. I believe that to be true for some, and I respect that, but I prefer to let my images speak for me. The creative process is fun and if someone doesn’t like any of my photographs then even the most eloquent “artspeak” in the world isn’t going to change your opinion.
It would be a bit arrogant of me to expect people to like all of my images, but hopefully you, the viewer, will like some of them. If you're a model and think that you might be interested in modeling for me, then continue reading.
1. I believe in the KISS rule (Keep It Simple Stupid). Most of the time I prefer to shoot against a black or white background and use one light source; window light or strobe. Doing so enables me to easily blend the nude image with another subject.
2. I am disabled and in a wheelchair. If that makes you uncomfortable, then you can stop reading.
3. My "studio" consists of different rooms in our house.
4. Escorts are welcome. However, my wife will definitely be present because she is my assistant.
5. We have a cat and as far as we're concerned, she is family.
6. I'm pretty accepting of different body types. I want people to see me, not my wheelchair. Therefore, I do my best to reciprocate. However, I don't like breast implants unless used for reconstructive or transgender surgery.
7. Models, please don't contact me unless you're serious and like some of my images. I realize that modeling is a day job for some of you, but I only want models who are truly interested in collaborating with me to create art. If money is your sole motivation, then I don't want you.
8. I don't do porn!
Finally, thanks for taking the time to look at my work. If you like it and are interested in modelling for me send me a message. I live in the thriving metropolis of Littlestown, PA which is located near the somewhat famous community of Gettysburg.

"Craig is so sweet and wonderful to work with. He is quite talented shooting all film and developing it himself. His wife, who assists him, is also a wonder. Thank you both! Hope to shoot again soon. "
