About Me

I am a Toronto-based photographer with a passion for fine-art nude, figure, pregnancy and erotic photography. My goal is to create timeless, artistic, nude images suitable for large gallery-quality prints. I also shoot swim suit, lingerie, boudoir, nude and intimate photography of both women and couples. I maintain 100% professionalism in all my shoots.

If you have a theme or concept you'd like to try, let’s discuss it and let's see what we can put together.  If it requires studio work, a studio will have to be rented.  Otherwise, everything will be done on location according to the theme or concept.

My rates are very reasonable and I will consider *TF* work if it will benefit my portfolio.

I work with professional, semi-professional, and amateur models. If you like my work and would like to book a photo shoot, please, contact me through e-mail at [email protected]

My other photography profile is MM#2135096

I am always working on my portfolio, so, I hope to meet other photographers and models so we can help each other out. I do test shoots as well as limited TFCD. I'm also open to other ideas, as well, and will discuss them with you. I photograph in a studio as well as on location, both indoors and outdoors.

Please, feel free to comment on any photos that I have taken. I am always interested in what other people have to say about my work. I may also be reached through e-mail at [email protected]

I am always looking for new models to photograph. I have an ongoing requirement for slim, attractive female models for swim suit, lingerie, implied nude and nude. Always tasteful. Models receive a CD of the best shots within a few weeks of the photo shoot. A full model release is required.

*18+ images in port...Please turn on your Worksafe Mode if you do not wish to see them.*

TIPS FOR MODELS

1) Study and master your poses. Watch videos on YouTube and practice in the mirror. Yes, you will look funny, yes you might even be embarrassed but in the end it will be to your advantage. People look at your photo to see something. You must give them something to look at. In human interaction, body language says a lot. Learn to say something with yours.

2) Practice facial expressions. A blank face is not attractive. Think about it. Think about a blank face starring back at you and how that would feel. Smiles and such, without sounds also communicate to the viewer. The models, who are often the most successful, have something to say visually that they relate to the viewer.

3) Educate yourself. If you want to be a fashion model, read Vogue. If you want to be a porn star, watch porn. There is so much you can learn by example. Watch what other people do and study them. Emulate them and then add your own personal touches. This can make you not only knowledgeable about where you really want to go, but you could help you gain knowledge about how you are going to help yourself get there.

4) Prior to any lingerie and nude shoots, ensure that you wear loose fitting clothing (no elastics) so that we do not spend half the shoot waiting to get rid of annoying lines. Wash hair the day before and not the day of the shoot. Be clean and well-groomed which includes nails and toenails. If we are working with a make-up artist, arrive with a clean face with no make-up. Please, be on time.

5) Practice posing and be prepared to do it naturally.  DON'T, under any circumstances, just stand in front of the camera and ask what you are supposed to do.  If you don't know what to do, then practice in front of a mirror until you do.  Just being pretty, or unusual looking, does not make you a model.


MODEL RELEASE - A standard release must be signed. Models must be 18 years of age or older (please bring proof of ID to shoot).

IMPORTANT NOTE:
Unless otherwise discussed, models are to have their nails manicured with clear polish or have a French manicure.

LOOKING FOR:
A good attitude
An open mind
Comfortable posing nude
A creative spirit
Experience is a bonus
