About Me

You can find more recent work here, on the first few pages of my JPGmag page.


◙ My focus is to make beautiful photographs & build a portfolio.

    * Ladies: I will not ask you to bare anything except maybe your shoulders.
    * Gents: Show it & I'll shoot it! ;.) Nothing beyond shirtless.
    * Escorts: Welcome & encouraged.

◙ Location, location, location ...
    * Always looking for interesting places.
    * Willing to travel (within reason) for a good location or a great model.

◙ Lingerie & Nude
    * I intend to continue doing lingerie and artistic nude work with select models.
    * If you're interested in that, PM me.
    * I will not surprise you during a shoot with a request for such & certainly will not without discussing first in advance.


Message me if you think you'd like to work with me smile
I'm only doing TFCD.



Some general themes I'm thinking about these days are:
- Motion, selective focus, and de-focusing.
- Intimacy & longing
- emergence and transformation
- Introspection
- Vulnerability
- Contradiction
- Surreality and ethereality
- Voyeurism & exhibitionism
- Joy and grief
- Alienation
- Emotional essence
- Artistic nude
- Artistic erotica
- whatever else comes up in the moment


I don't try to force anything.
... just go with the flow, enjoy the process & watch for the moment.
Everything will unfold perfectly when the time comes.

I am not heavily concept driven, preferring to let the location, wardrobe, and look of model drive the creative process.



Why do I make photographs?
I do it because I am driven to do it.
It is somehow part of my nature.

I do it for the love of photography & the joy of realizing a vision.
It is an expression of my own unique view of the world.
In many ways, it is a form of self portraiture.

I started working with models, because I love people in photographs.
A landscape doesn't look right to me unless there's someone in it.
For me, the human element is everything.
Same goes for street photography
... another genre of photography I love.

I don't make any money doing it, or from it, and don't expect to.
I do spend money on it, though. Every shoot costs ...
What I do is not commercially marketable.
Nor do I believe it is art worthy.
But, it has value to me, and that's enough.

I don't produce images for any particular purpose, or commercial consumption.
I only record moments that I hope will speak with their own voice,
and in so doing, will speak for me & somehow confirm my own existence
by proving I was there; the unseen eye.

I'm not a professional, nor do I consider myself a hobbyist or amateur,
yet here I am, unable to define my role as a photographer
beyond being some kind of catalyst.

Some Treasured comments:

 
"Your images have such an intriguing elegance.
Each shot evokes something that is at once raw and refined, a dichotomy not easily found so naturally in a digital age.
I admire your color choices and composition as well as the beautiful complexities that hold the pictures together ..."

"“A fellow will remember a lot of things you wouldn't think he'd remember.
You take me.

One day, back in 1896, I was crossing over to Jersey on the ferry, and as we pulled out, there was another ferry pulling in, and on it there was a girl waiting to get off. A white dress she had on. She was carrying a white parasol. I only saw her for one second.

She didn't see me at all, but I'll bet a month hasn't gone by since that I haven't thought of that girl.”


- For some reason this beautiful shot brings to mind that unforgettable line from Citizen Kane.
This is the kind of face, the kind of setting, the kind of innocuous pose that can stay with us for a lifetime."
