About Me

I'm currently working on a series of Animal Spirit photos utilizing horns, antlers, feathers and tailored costumes.

**In the past year, I've had 20 nude images of models from Model Mayhem get accepted to major galleries and exhibitions in Astoria, OR, Clarksville, TN, Pasadena, CA, Los Angeles, CA, Tampa, FL, Orlando FL and the Seattle Erotic Art Festival.**

I'm interested in improving my skills as a photographer and artist. I like to shoot with interesting people. You don't have to be the stereotypical model shape and I don't mind tattoos, piercings or any other way you choose to adorn your body. I want to create art and art calls for the unusual and the imperfections.

On that note, if you tell me you have a blemish or a scar or an imperfection that you would rather not show, I'm more than willing to edit them out for you. I'm not however in the habit of doing complete makeovers with PhotoShop. I like my resulting images to be as close to what I saw through the viewfinder as possible.

I'm a huge fan of ambient and falling light and so try to use minimal artificial light in my shoots. I like shooting in unusual places. Ever wanted to shoot in an abandoned house, a warehouse, or perhaps a church?

I like planning out theme shoots and then working with models to find locations, develop costumes and choose the best lighting.

I do a limited amount of TF shooting. My time is valuable and I think yours is too. I expect to be paid when someone asks me to shoot photos that will benefit them. Likewise I expect to pay people whose images will benefit me. On that note, I have established rates I pay and expect to be paid and these are negotiable under the right circumstances. I'm also willing to trade for photo shoots if you have something interesting to trade.

For instance: wide angle Nikon lenses, antique cameras, Reiki healing, turquoise and silver jewelry.

Escorts: I'm fine with escorts as long as they are quiet, courteous and don't try to take over my shoot. I may even put them to work moving props.

I have shooting locations available in West Central Illinois and Northeastern Iowa.

I frequently travel through Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Tennessee, North Carolina, Virginia, Ohio, Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico and Colorado and can shoot anytime I'm coming through.

I'm currently working on and seeking female models for the following kinds of shoots:

Classic nudes
Abandoned locations and derelict cars
Faeries, nature spirits and mythical creatures
Confined spaces
Available Light

I've been fortunate this year to work with some great models in several states. I'm looking forward to more of the same in the coming year. If you'd like to work with me, drop me a line.
