Mayhem # 675682
I try to create distinctive, engaging portraiture. I hope to make images that excite the viewer's imagination by revealing something of the character of the model in honest & respectful ways.
I am drawn to people with complicated histories - both ethnic and personal - which are visible in their faces or their bodies. I'm a fan of extreme multi-ethnicity, complex racial and national stories, and unusual & extreme features. I enjoy working with unconventional looks and models who push the boundaries of beauty. I am always interested in working with people whose faces reveal distinct and strong ethnicity.
I am more interested in people than in fashion, and enjoy working with people who are not models. Many of those I work with are people I stopped on the street and subway; many of them in turn I have helped steer into professional modelling.
My Model Mayhem portfolio is rarely updated and will give you only a small and static glimpse of the kind of portraiture I do. There are several thousand portraits on my flickr:

I'm currently working out of Washington Heights (northern Manhattan). I try to offer as many TFP shoots as I can afford each month for people with genuine financial hardship.
THROUGH THE END OF NOVEMBER 2016, I AM OFFERING IN-STUDIO SHOOTS WITH 5 PROCESSED PORTRAITS FOR $150. SHOOTS IN DECEMBER ARE $200, AND SHOOTS IN 2017 WILL BE $300.
- Shoots typically last 2 to 3 hours. Models typically recieve at least 5 processed portraits. I do not release unedited photos. Please allow 4 to 8 weeks for processing before you start bombarding me with tri-weekly demands for ETAs and updates on processing.
- Please do no bring guests; models who arrive with surprise guests will be asked to leave. I am a professional, and expect you to behave professionally; bringing an ininvited guest is not professional. If you are an adult and feel you are unable to trust me enough that you must bring your wife or boyfriend or mother to sit around staring while we work, please find another photographer. I do not allow spectators/bodyguard/escorts/ under any circumstances. I am 100% serious about this and cannot say this more emphatically: do NOT bring uninvited guests to our shoot, and do NOT allow your guests or friends to interrupt or cut short our shoot. There is virtually nothing more rude and disrespectful than this.
- Cancelling a shoot at the last minute means an entire day of shooting wasted for me. PLEASE be considerate of my time by arriving, and arriving on time. Because of frequent last minute cancellations I can no longer offer TFP or free shoots.
