About Me

I'm an environmental scientist by day, roller derby coach at night and on weekends and occassional evening I shoot beautiful things. With all this on my plate scheduling with me is tricky. But I have a true passion for my craft and i am always seeking out MUAs and Models to expand portfolios with and collaborate with our talents to do pinup/artistic portrait photography. I have been a semi-professional photographer for 24 years. Having spent a majority of my career on wildlife, scenic, architectural, concerts/bands, sports, events, and weddings I have decided to move more towards the artistic side for my current endeavors.

My wife, Brenda, has been a professional makeup artist/manicurist for 22 years and has several professional credits such as album cover art for bands and models, fashion photo shoots, commercial advertising print shoots, and runway work as a makeup artist to her credit. Brenda has worked as a MAC, Smashbox, Christian Dior, and Origins makeup artist.

We look forward to working with fun loving models who have a penchant for vintage apparel and/or retro stylings. I also enjoy woking with punk/edgy/goth themes in run down abandoned buildings or with city scapes as our backdrop.

*** Current Projects***

#*#"VD Fever, Catch It!" takes a lighthearted/whimsical approach to Valentine's Day, the commercialization, and the "pressure" society places upon us to meet the hype of this Hallmark Holliday, (or face it's wrath).

#*#"Your Darkest Fears" is a more sinister twist on things both rational and irrational that dwell in the dark recessess of your psyche. This one is going to be a long, ongoing collection/project. Shoots ranging from graphic horror inspiring shots to a lil more "tongue in cheek" action that may make some folks, well, a lil uneasy about what's under their beds.

So, who want's to be a part of these? ;-)

We currently are doing mainly TFP/CD with models on collaborative efforts and are willing discuss rates for models who are looking for something specific to add to their own portfolios.


Abandoned/blight building shoots

Beach pinup shoots

Band shoots

Budoir shoots

as well as a variety of fetish and artistic nude shoots.

If any of these ideas appeal to you, just let me know, and I'd be happy to incorporate your talents in them wherever possible.

I intend on submitting several of my works from this year in the hope that they will become entries for next year's Detroit Dirty Show XII.
