About Me

I specialize in fine art photography, with the male figure as my primary subject. I photograph narratively, creating series of images that tell a story. Much of my photography is based on classical/Renaissance/mythological imagery. Past projects include Episodes in the Life of Hercules, illustrating the Tarot Cards, and currently I'm working on a "Human Commodities" series (see my avatar as an example). I use non-traditional models to broaden the definition of who is and can be a model, and to question and challenge traditional notions of who and what can be a successful model.

Upcoming class @ Glen Echo Photoworks- The Narrative and the Male Form
I'm offering a class starting Wednesday, March 11 from 7-10pm, running through April 22 at Glen Echo Photoworks entitled "The Narrative and the Male Form". The course is a seven-week seminar on the use of narrative in figure photography, specializing in using male models.

Why the narrative? I want to encourage students to use the figure in storytelling - conveying motivation, action, and engagement with the viewer. I also want students to consider how they craft a narrative photographically - a narrative can be a diptych, a series of images, or it can be a single frame.

Why the male form? I am choosing to work with male models to provoke thought about questions of gender, identity, and sexuality, and how we convey those ideas. Photographing a man is not the same as photographing a woman. What does it mean to be a man who photographs men? A woman? How are they different, and how are they the same?

There will be three shooting sessions, with at least one model per session. The session devoted to multi-image narratives will have two models, thus the model fee of $150 per person. The model fee is payable directly to the instructor. Tuition is $350.

Here's a video of me talking about the class:
