About Me

Preface

As you might have noticed, I've been pretty absent lately. Not any more! My camera broke, but I recently replaced it and am ready to roll. Since the last update to my biography, I've dedicated a lot of time, money, and energy into increasing my makeup kit and learning the ropes cosmetically. I'd be hesitant to say I'm as good as a MuA who has been, you know, doing it professionally for a while-- but I definitely know what I'm doing and enjoy adventurous, conceptual projects. I like to see a unified vision come to life, and being able to achieve that cosmetically is important to me. I do most of my own makeup work, and am also available on a limited basis for hire by other photographers.

I've been shooting for about seven years, and it's my life's passion. I enjoy working with models who love what they do as much as I love what I do-- that's how good pictures are made.

Since I recently moved from Ohio to Massachusetts, I have much more time freed up for TFCD work. I do require a full release for all TFCD, and right now exceptional new models and models I have a prior working relationship with get priority on my TFCD timeslots. (Obviously, if I have contacted you, I consider you "exceptional," but feel free to inquire on your own! I also have a soft spot for people starting out who have a small, poor, or no portfolio.)

If you are not comfortable with signing a full release, I have a sliding rate schedule which will fit any budget (and any level of usage rights the model wants or needs).

I do not offer high-profile, paying, or tear sheet work to models I have not worked with before. In all three of those scenarios I have something major on the line, and cannot afford to take a chance on someone whose work ethic I am unfamiliar with. I am constantly looking for new ways to promote myself and my work, and when an opportunity comes up for me, I am more than happy to share that with my models.

My style is pretty obvious, I think: I love extremely conceptual work, visual irony and puns, and unexpected detail. My goal is not to make a model look beautiful-- it's to make the model look beautiful through showcasing a facet of their personality. Because of this, I am against ordering models around; I want to collaborate, and expect the model to bring as much to the table as I do.

Credit Notes

I haven't worked with a lot of models from MM, but here are the ones I have!

Jessica Laux - 42681: Even if she didn't have a great look I'd still shoot with her for the company. A joy to work with.

Melinda Kennedy - 46244: Fearless in front of the camera, and working with her is never work.

Brianna Wetlauffer - 56251: I am damn lucky to have worked with her. Period.

Taina - 4680: A distinctive look with a wonderful work ethic. The ridiculously long, almost prehensile hair is just a bonus-- it's almost like its own entity. Very fun to shoot.

Andon - 84265: 6'1 barefoot, wow. Another fearless model with a great attitude and wardrobe to match. We started talking about our next shoot two days after the first.

Lee Stalcup - 103331: What a professional. A total workaholic, completely devoted to making the absolute best images. Fun and funny, and a true collaborator to boot-- can't get much better than that.

Larry J - 153184: Totally professional, organized, willing to work, GREAT attitude. I really enjoyed shooting with him!
