About Me

I am sorry, but I've been inundated with friend requests from retouch artists that seem to only want to publish bulletins pushing their services.  I will only be accepting requests from models and photographers from now on. 

I've been shooting all of my life.  These days I prefer shooting women over 30 in various stages of dress and undress. I love that they come to a shoot with so much life experience.

There's a certain beauty in that experience and the right photographer can bring it out of every woman.  I think that at some level every woman believes they are special or want to believe it.  Just so you know, I do believe it.  So I treat them special. 

One of my very slow moving projects is doing an art series that I'm calling "Women of a Certain Age".  That implies some physical age, but not necessarily.  It's more of a sense of being and an attitude, so if you believe you fit that category, I'd like to work with you.

I am highly professional and very sensitive to the needs and wishes of my models.    The only model I ever connected with, I married almost 30 years ago.  She is also one of the best makeup artists in town and will sometimes come play with us.

I am in favor of models bringing an escort to the first (or however many more they need) shoot with me.  In some cases I will insist.

While women are my favorite subjects, I have shot many people, men, women, and children in all kinds of settings.  I've been published in magazines and newspapers all over the country. 

I will take paid jobs, but mostly I shoot for my own pleasure and for the pleasure of the models I work with.  TFP, TFCD are fine for me.  I'm a big believer in the barter system of economy.

I am a movie producer and actor, so I'm not in competition with any other photographers. 

There are some locally who are much better than I am and many that the reverse is true. 

I just really like the art form, so I'm interested in helping others make good pictures too.

I am open to all kinds of photo ideas, though I tend to lean toward the edgy or over the edge ideas. There's not much I won't shoot, but there are some things.  If you have an idea for a shoot that you think is too far out there, just ask.  If it makes good art, I'm probably in.  If it is denigrating to anyone's lifestyle preferences, or hateful in any way, then I'm out. 

If I've caught your attention in any way, get in touch and let's sit down and visit about it.  I  will meet a model someplace neutral and nonthreatening for them if we don't know each other or that's what makes them more comfortable.  I just think that's the professional, respectful way to do things.

I hope to hear from you soon.  :)
