About Me

I am interested in working/collaborating with models who are interested in high contrast black and white art photographs of the female figure. I am an architect, father, gypsy, tin toy collector, world traveller, and photographer. A bit of a renaissance man - designer, architect, passionate about photography, the arts, ballet, dance, and painting.

I am very interested in black and white portrait and studio photography from the 30's-60's in particular the photos of Henri Cartier-Bresson, Sophie Calle, Raymond Depardon, Imogen Cunningham, and Robert Doiseau. Two of my reference books for art photographs of the female nude are " The Eternal Body" photos by Ruth Bernhard, and " This Is Who I Am" photos by Rosanne Olson. I am also very interested in the black and white fashion/portraits/nude photographs of Richard Avedon, David Bailey, Herb Ritts, and Irvin Penn from the 50's, 60's, and 70's.

I have had some success with my images, having taken part in the Artist's Project in 2014 & 2015. My photographs have been published in a few European magazines, and my photographs have been published 4 times in the last 3 years in Black & White Magazine ( see list below). I haven't posted photos on MM for a couple of years so to see my recent work, please have a look at my website.

* Dancers*, I am a huge ballet/dance fan and have been attending performance by the National Ballet for over 20 years. Some of the dance companies I like are Alvin Ailey Dance Company, Danny Grossman Dance Company, Lala human Steps, George Balanchine, Twyla Tharp, and of course the National ballet of Canada. Would love to work/photograph some dancers ( modern + ballet).

“Dance first. Think later. It's the natural order.”
― Samuel Beckett

“You don't make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.”
― Ansel Adams

“The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It's the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows & the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years.”
― Audrey Hepburn

“The body is meant to be seen, not all covered up.”
― Marilyn Monroe

"A genius who can see lines, forms and angles where most will walk pass by, and create outstanding images. Patient when giving instructions.The workshop was organized very well with enough time for each photographer to take photos, enough time for model to get some rest and change. Hopefully our paths cross again in future!" Read less

"I really love working with Malcolm. He is a true artist, and I feel like our styles mesh together really well. One of our photos continues to be a favourite of mine, and photographers who book me often comment on how lovely it is. In addition to one-on-one shoots, I have also modeled for one of his workshops. All of my experiences have been very positive. Thanks, Malcolm!" Read less
