About Me

My name is Chris, and I'm a self-taught photographer who aspires to create images that are both provocative and playfully edgy. I strive to constantly evolve as an artist (although using the word "artist" makes me uncomfortable), feeling free to experiment and unafraid to fail. While I don't mind shooting traditional themes, I'm happiest working with models who share my somewhat offbeat sense of humor and don't mind being silly or weird.

I'm a life-long admirer of pin-up style art. I grew up obsessed with images of Bettie Page and other underground models of her era, studying the work of Irving Klaw and Bunny Yeager, and flipping through pages of vintage men's magazines with names like "Tab", "Show", and "Eye", suggestive publications once deemed too lurid to be sold over the counter that now seem curiously innocent by modern standards. In many ways, it's this inherently taboo aspect that makes these guilty pleasures so fascinating to me. And it's this delicate dance between wholesomeness and, for lack of a better term, comic book style sleaze that I find most invigorating, imagining that beneath every housewife's proper June Cleaver exterior is a garter-belt wearing, cat-o-nine-tails toting vixen ready to pounce.

I draw heavy inspiration from B-movie and grindhouse imagery, like scenes from an all night marathon of Russ Meyer films and drive-in double features. I try to create pictures that convey universal schoolboy day dreams and pay homage to the low brow pop stylings of artists like Robt Williams and Art Crumb, incredible talents who often elevated their medium yet still felt free to dip their toes into the gutter, combining elements of retro-style cheesecake with tongue-in-cheek, in-your-face vulgarity and doing so with style.

I've been extremely fortunate to work with many talented and imaginative models in the Sarasota area, some with professional credentials and others who were complete newcomers, and I'm eager to work with anyone out there who is interested in creating something different. I hope you all enjoy my portfolio and welcome you to say hello!
