About Me

Attention Retouchers.
Please do not TAG, Friend or Message me. 
I have a retoucher  locally who I work side by side with.  I do not require your services.

Just so there are no misunderstandings.
In 17 years of photographing models, I have not had occasion to pay a model. 
If you wish to pay me, great.  If not our shoots will be TF.

I'm starting my 17th year as a model photographer.  In that time I have photographed over 400 different women with well over 500 shoots.

I'm looking for models I have never worked with before.
If you've never been in front of a camera before, I'll work with you.
If you are returning to modeling, I'll photograph you.
If you need to redo or add to your portfolio, lets shoot. 

The shoots will be TF,  I do not sell or make any money from my images.
I do this for the Art. I cannot afford to pay you Sorry.
I promise you the best images I can.
You will receive a few edits and proofs the same day as the shoot.  And then we select the best.

My time is as valuable as is yours.
If your Aunt's girlfriend plans on dying right before we shoot,  please look for another photographer.  If you tend to walk very close to the edge of the earth, please don't call me. 

YES I will shoot nudes but that  has NEVER been a requirement to shoot with me.  All the models who have posed nude ASKED me to take those pictures.

One more thing.  I do not have a studio.  For 15 years I've photographed models in their home or that of one of her friends.  Many hundreds of models have done so and loved it.  Yes, I'll shoot outdoors but with Chicago weather there will be postponements. 

Since you have gotten this far, I know we will have a fun, creative and productive shoot.

Credit Notes

I'd run out of space listing ALL the 400+ models I have photographed. 
Many have been photographed numerous times, one has worked with me 29 times because our shoots get her jobs.
