About Me

I’ve lugged a camera around since my teen years, influenced by my father, a talented and passionate amateur photographer with a home darkroom. So after a 33-year career as an international geologist and years of living abroad and wide travels, it seemed natural that I use photography as my chosen medium in seeking creative outlets when I retired back to the San Francisco Bay area in late 2013.

I’ve long been in thrall to the beautiful in all its forms. Thus as a photographer during my working years I had pursued many different subjects from wildlife to landscapes to architecture to abstract. It’s curious that in much of my photography I long sought to avoid people in the picture. Yet I always loved the female form – who doesn’t!—and over the years I also had a growing love of dance, undoubtedly related to that fact. It was only as I approached retirement and had the financial means to work with professional models and mentors that I could explore these subjects as I had long aspired to and take my photography to a higher level.

For my own development I am presently venturing into a range of genres (as you may discover in my portfolio): fashion, art nude, portrait, lingerie, fitness, editorial, and erotic (up to a point). And as a keen lover and student of dance I’m particularly interested in finding self-assured models with serious dance training (classical and/or modern) in their backgrounds.

It’s been a wonderful experience, meeting so many interesting and creative models and other photographers alike, collaborating on images and developing my skill sets. May the journey continue!
