UPDATE October 14, 2015
Glad to finally share some more recent work here. Take a peek. More to come!
Currently dividing my time between making prints of my non-model-based artwork, and continuing to expand my portfolio of fashion, lingerie, body-paint, tattoo-models, and fine-art nudes. Shooting both on location and in studio, and always up to collaborate with creative models, stylists, and MUAs.
THIS MM PORTFOLIO CONTAINS MOSTLY TEST-SHOTS, all spontaneously-staged. I never saw the clothing prior to the shoots, and most often had never met the model beforehand. Everything was shot hand-held, in natural daylight, and much of that in my former studio. I am now set up to shoot both indoors and at some of the wonderful locations in lower-Puna where I now make my headquarters. Come see!
I am a very experienced fashion-photographer who has also worked in many related capacities. I've had studios in Chicago and Seattle, shot runway fashion in Italy, built sets and special-effects for national print-ads and tv-commercials, worked in professional darkrooms, created an art-publishing start-up, etc.
After many years away from both the cameras and the fashion work that once filled my life in places such as Chicago and Rome, I am now taking things more casually here in rural Hawaii, and am most interested in co-creating beautiful and/or arresting photographic art and fashion images.
I am looking to collaborate with any aspiring local and amateur models, stylists, and MUAs, and also with any TRAVELING TALENT [see bottom of page] to co-create some wonderful photos and art.
Alternative-fashion, fine-art-nudes/implied, unusual portraiture, creating a new portfolio of tattoo'd/pierced models, and simply in playing creatively with MAGIC, LIGHT AND ART!
I'm open, skilled, humorous, easy to work with, and DOWN TO SHOOT!
ABOUT TF WORK:
In addition to giving you a nice selection of fully-edited digital versions of your better shots, I will also provide all contributing models, stylists, & MUAs with fine-art-giclee' prints of any resulting images which I may choose to print for myself.
ON COMMUNICATIONS & RELIABILITY:
I can't emphasize strongly enough how important these are to the success of our efforts. PLEASE DO communicate –reliably, clearly, and promptly!
TRAVELING TO HAWAII? . . . COME TO THE BIG ISLAND!
I am v-e-r-y eager to work with visiting models, MUAs, and stylists interested in doing some new portfolio work on the Big Island (near Hilo), and am happy to offer you TF accommodations possibilities just a few hundred yards from the ocean!
