Mayhem # 384779
Since the New York Court of Appeals's 1992 decision in People v. Santorelli, declaring that women have a right to be topless in public anywhere in New York State that men have that right, I have been working to try to make an artistic and political statement about that ruling. I am now working on a website which will display my ongoing work with women all over New York State, and I am interested in hearing from any woman who wishes to participate by going topless anywhere in New York.
Though the images are often playful, I take my work seriously, and I strive to improve it. Therefore I welcome any and all genuine feedback, whether it's positive or negative.
I'm a man of my word, and I don't understand why anybody would agree to concrete plans for a shoot and then blow them off. I honestly just don't get it.
You may think that makes me naive, but consider for a moment what that makes you. :-)
As a member of "The List," I also accept a number of requests for TFP work with "newbie" models in my area. If you are relatively new to Mayhem, please feel free to contact me about these TFP shoots. I am more interested in (and qualified for) helping newbies expand their outdoor book, but am willing to entertain other requests as well.
As a member of the "4th List," I hosted traveling models in New York City, sometimes in trade for shoots, sometimes for free, and I have been cleared by a reference check. Now that I live in Brooklyn, I no longer host models on a regular basis.

"Had a great time working with you as well, you're a lot of fun to hang out with.
