About Me

I shoot weddings, freelance for local newspapers at football games, and anything else that'll pay bills.  Model Mayhem gets that creative challenge in for me.  Working with models to collaborate on shoots and create something new, and hopefully help them develop their ports is the reward.

I do selective TF* with models I reach out to in order to hopefully enhance both our portfolios and careers. 

I am interested in attempting to make a shoot tell a story, or follow a theme.  I usually have a specific song or musical artist running through my head (it's the ballroom dancer in me) and I like to attempt at making pictures that evoke emotion, explore an environment, etc. 

I enjoy shooting on location as well as have access to various studios inside and outside the perimeter.  I also have a private backyard and pool on my property perfect for outdoor shoots. 

Shoots I enjoy, just personal faves-
*Dark Waters- a pool, fog machines, dry ice, and gel color lights, sexy and ethereal.
*Zombie Survival- multiple survivors and infected, multiple environments, and of course the weapons of survival
*Ballroom Dance
*Ferris Wheel & Carnivals
*Alleys and graffiti, the dark side of town
*Cosplays (I'm a giant nerd)
*Undeveloped housing (thank you economy!)
*Abandoned buildings, old abandoned train tracks
*A fedora makes a girl look hotter
*Portraits, boudoir with an edge
*Empty houses
*Exploring an area/park
*Song-based narratives

TL;DR - I want to take pictures that hit right in the feels.  Don't care whether it's sexy, sad, sadistic, or sweet.  I am all about collaboration and bringing someone's vision to life.  Let's make something happen!

Definitely contact me through email or here on MM if you're interested in getting together with me and making the camera work.
