About Me

A picture becomes art when the artist divides the "canvas" in ways that evoke a positive response.  It is the response that completes the work of art. 
I view photographic art as a collaboration between the photographer and the model as they divide the frame in new ways.  I like to stress the spaces between the objects of the photograph as a compelling aspect of design.

I have had my work exhibited in more than thirty galleries on three continents as part of larger shows.  The galleries include the Piazza ca' Zanardi in Venice, Italy, the Berlin Blue Art Gallery in Berlin, Germany, the Blank Wall Gallery in Athens, Greece, and the Valid World Hall in Barcelona, Spain. 

I am willing to travel and pay top dollar for the right model.  I can supply references from models I have worked with before.

I travel a lot, so I am not limited to any particular location.

I sell my work through BentBox at http://bentbox.co/photographer1944  You can see more of my work there.  You can help sustain my efforts at http://www.patreon.com/photographer1944.  You can see another portfolio at https://gurushots.com/photographer1944/photos.

To the models:  I am a happily married man and will not try to hit on you in any way, regardless of your overwhelming beauty.

"There is not a negative thing in my mind that I can express about this shoot! 1944 provided the best of both worlds: clearly defined concepts and images he intended to execute, as well as allowing the model creative freedom to pursue sought after shots in the eclectic and spacious studio space he had access to! Extremely respectful and accommodating photographer with whom I am highly anticipating the next shoot, already scheduled for a September date! :) Judging from the preview of shots he sent the day after our shoot, it's safe to say we nailed it!"
