I've been shooting for about 15 years now. I started in nature and macro photography, and have been published numerous times for my nature and wildlife work including several cover photos for park magazines.
I started shooting portraiture along the way, mostly for friends who needed pictures done, but as time has gone on, I've been shooting more and more portraits. I now shoot a steady stream of senior portraits and weddings, with some modeling photography thrown into the mix. I enjoy working with people, and I am an educator by profession. While the majority of my work to this point has been outdoor, I do have a small indoor studio space that I have been building up recently. It's not huge, but it is working for me. I can, as need be, travel with a small studio kit to shoot on location. I've shot several portraits in studio and I'd love to shoot some higher fashion model work here.
I typically provide models with 4-6 of the best images from our shoot, fully retouched, with the option of negotiating for rights to the full DVD of all images, unedited, from the shoot. I do shoot some tfp and some paid work, depending on what you're looking for and what kinds of ideas you bring to the table.
TATTOO E-BOOK PROJECT! My winter 2015-2016 personal art project is a photo book documenting people with tattoos, matched with the stories behind the ink. The book "Ink!" will hopefully be available in late Spring 2016. If you have tattoos that have compelling personal significance, I'd love to shoot with you! There are a few sample images within my gallery. Models choosing to participate in this shoot will need to agree to a photoshoot in my small home studio, along with sharing the story behind their tattoos. This project is open to all men and women with tattoos.
