My photo of designer Mimi Tran on the cover of FSHN Magazine, April 2015


This cover was done with hair stylist Vanessa Rockey for a Eufora contest. She won first place and our photo landed on the cover of their quarterly industry magazine.

Our work from a previous contest has also been featured at the Eufora national conference materials (posters, flyers, attendee ID badges, etc.. )
From October 2012 until July 2014 I served as Editor in Chief of VOLO Magazine which is available in print online to an international audience.

See my Not Safe For Work VOLO #10 Cover shot.

In addition to being published in VOLO, my erotic and fine art nude photographs have been exhibited in galleries in multiple cities in the United States including San Francisco, New York, and Las Vegas and have been published in the US, Europe, South America, and Asia.

I sell limited edition prints to collectors, numbered and signed.


I require models to sign a release for all shoots.
Ask me about it and I will send you a copy to preview.
If we're shooting anything sexy or nude I will need a copy of your ID as proof of age. It is required of me by law.
Look up 18 U.S.C. Section 2257 for an explanation.


– I am very selective about the models I TFP with –


NOTE: I do not provide models with RAW photos.
