i am just out here on my own, trying my hardest to present those that i work with as honest, real, humble and human as I can possibly & as much as they will let me. I guess I want to capture who my subjects actually are under the make up and behind the looks. maybe I'm just never in the right place at the right time or surround myself with the right people but I keep trying.
if you want images that are yours as much as they are mine and that we enter in the creative process together to help define and capture who you feel like being in that moment let's make some photographs.
honestly I would love to shoot more men, more diverse people, older, the non pros, anyone who just wants to be documented.
i struggle with photography as a commodity or even thinking about it on a commerical level for myself . i struggle with calling what i do art. i don't think what i do fits into a neat definition. it isn't fine art, it isn't glamour, it isn't portraiture. i am just a dude who is trying to take some photographs and create something that may hold up over the years.
I have got my own space I love to shoot in located in jersey city 4 blocks from public transportation (hoboken lightrail). I tend to be a bit manic and all over the place shooting with multiple digital cameras and various film & instant type camera things.
I tend to air of the side of natural looking images, no air brushing no warping, I want to focus on reality based images. I like to think I am well references & pretty easy to put in some work with.
if you like what i do and want something like it in your portfolio, please be willing to consider teaming up to create it. I have a fairly limited photography budget so if you are looking to have me book you (as in pay your rates) I suggest getting in touch as much in advance as possible. I understand you have to pay your bills and live your life because so do I. this is a luxury pastime. this probably a vanity project. so please do not take offense if I can't or don't book you.
I think I am pretty straight forward and no nonsense so please do not hesitate to get in touch. I think I'm easy going fairly easy to work with and hassle free ... let make some photographs!

"Jesse has the eye and mind of an artist, with him you're making something real, not over thought or over worked. His aim is take an image of his subject as they are."
as you can see from my portfolio I have worked with a wide variety of mostly free lance models. I like to believe i am fairly well referenced and can provide contacts if they are needed.
