About Me

Thanks for looking at my photos. I am a self-taught photographer who shoots mostly for fun, and I have had a blast meeting people around the world while taking photos. I enjoy learning about the men I shoot, especially men who are starting or even those doing it for the first time.

If you are in great shape with a great smile, reach me by sending an email. I may be able to pay you for shoots here and there, and I may be able to do TFP on occasion.  But - surprise, surprise - you can always hire me to shoot whatever you need - men alone or men together, or any other variation. My base rate is $100 for a 60 minute session.

I also coordinate a Meetup group of models and photographers that is a lot of fun. You will find the group here http://www.meetup.com/Chicago-Nude-Male-Photography/. We have two tracks - a Career group of men who want to expand their portfolios as models or photographers. And a Community group which includes photographers of all levels and men of all kinds who want to get naked for the camera. We encourage everyone to check it out - from beginner to veteran.  You will enjoy the friendship and opportunity to learn, and if you are a model, you will get a lot of photos from a short session.
I work in a small space on Chicago's north side that has great free parking, and excellent public transportation from the Red Line or Clark Street Bus.

If you are looking at my website, there is a very affordable $2.50 pass for 2 days to see the private galleries. As you know, photography costs money, and this small fee is a small step toward breaking even. So please don’t ask for the password for free as I find that question coming from a fellow artist a very sad request indeed.
