About Me

I currently reside on the wonderful island of Oahu, Hawaii; with frequent visits to San Francisco Bay Area and Monterey Bay Area.  I consider myself an artist; always experimenting and being creative.  My primary mediums of choice is charcole/pad and the photographic medium.  I work both with digital and old fashion film.   I have access to darkroom and enjoy making old fashion hand prints. I mostly work with nude human form but not limited to such.

My Philosophy:
Life is an adventure, why not life life to the fullest and have fun.
I want to explore, experiment, and capture the many beautiful flavors of the universe that I can.  I want to create pictures that envoke an emotional response, or just to make you think.  I want to capture the moment, and viewing my art  as an experiment, for life is an experiment in itself.

My Educational Background:
BA in Biology, Environmental Science, and Design Arts.  Design Arts specilizing in traditional photography, digital imagery and drawing.

My Projects:
Woodland Spirit - Use natural human form and blend it with natural materials like mud, moss, ferns to blend model with that of nature and kinda be like a forest spirit.

Urban nudes/Guerrilla Photography - "Shoot and Run" Photography that is irregular and/or clandestined and outside rules or accepted status quo. These shoots are often involve semi public to public locations, and often involves some degree of nudity.

Bodyscapes - A nude meant to evoke the feeling of a landscape. Using the body as lines and curves, these images abstract body to evoke rolling hills and majestic mountains. The undertone of sexuality is easily missed at first viewing, allowing the multiple meanings of the imagery to be realized slowly.

Eroticscapes - An extension of bodyscapes but dealing with aspects of the body that some might consider more erotic in nature but still abstracting into something different.

Bodypainting - I started to explore aspects of bodypainting about a year ago.  I am in process of learning and getting better.  I am also interested in painting traditional pacific islander designs, too.

Blacklight Bodypainting - Much like regular Bodypainting but using paints that show up under Blacklight. Effects are a lot different than that of regular Bodypainting.

Underwater - Looking to work with models who want to experiment with underwater photography.

Mermaid - I have two tails which can accommodate model up to a 28" waist.  We can shoot on inside, by pool, on beach or underwater.

Casual/Documentary Style photos - I like to go with natural nude look that doesnt seem posed.
