About Me

I am an established photographic fine artist working mainly in the central Ohio region. I am hoping to connect with models, preferably male, in hopes of creating new work aimed toward gallery exhibition. I tend to shoot much of my work on location, many times utilizing abandoned structures, so models must be comfortable with this type of adventure. Most of my work is black and white, while my color tends to be more subdued. I'm one of those photographers who still believes in the quality of the image and the craft that comes from hands-on production so even though much of my work is shot in digital, it later gets translated into platinum/palladium or other non-silver alternative techniques. I would like my photographs to be appreciated for many years and strive to produce images that engage the viewer again and again.

I believe that the human body is an incredible work of art, each person uniquely different; and it's the combination of the figure interacting with the environment that makes a statement. Models must be comfortable with their bodies and themselves, especially since I do a lot of work outdoors or in demanding environments.

I would prefer to trade. If you'd rather not trade (either CD or images), I can pay, but remember I'm an artist so please be reasonable. All models are treated with professional courtesy as I would expect the same. I'm here for business, nothing more!

Please check my website (above) for more examples. Feel free to contact me with any questions. Thanks for looking!

Also, I am NOT taking any friend requests from Retouchers. Sorry, but I do my own. Unless you just like the work, then please add a note stating so. Thank you.
