About Me

I'm a fine art photographer based in New York City, but I also do a fair amount of travel (often to Las Vegas). My primary interest in working with models is the fine art nude image in black & white. My work has been exhibited and published (see below) and you can see more of my images on my website (above).

I use film.  That’s because I love film and the process of creating fine art prints in a darkroom, which is the ultimate goal of my photography.  Digital cameras may be fine for commercial work where the bottom line rules supreme, but I believe that the process of creating art should be something more personal and more hands on.

Models will be compensated based on a mutual agreement, which depends in part on the level of the model's experience.  If they prefer art over monetary payment, they will receive some 11 x 14 inch exhibition grade darkroom prints.  (A computer file on a CD is not a work of art.  My prints are.)

So, if you’re intelligent and creative and would like to collaborate with me to create some beautiful nude photographic art, do let me know.  I look forward to hearing from you.

NOTE:  If you are interested in working with me, please send me a proper message and not a friend request.  Thank you.
