About Me

First learned the craft of photography in Los Angeles while working on motion picture sets, then went off to get a degree in Media Arts in the Midwest. I've lived and worked in Toronto and Montreal as well as exhibited from California to South Africa. Now, almost inexplicably, I find myself in the Southern Vermont and in constant need of other artists with whom to collaborate.



I can say that I truly respect the craft of modeling. Working with someone who is able to express the ineffable by willful manipulation of their body is endlessly astonishing to me. Photography is also an endeavor I hold in abject reverence, as I am sure most anyone on this site agrees. As passion is, by far, my greatest motivation in working within the medium now; I really have no need to conflate it with commerce. In other words, I expect no payment from you and I do not have the wherewithal to pay models. At least this way, working together means we are in for equal shares and looking for the same creative edification.



For references, please feel free to drop a note to anyone in the "Top 12 Friends" section below or anyone in my portfolio. Hopefully they would give you some insight into my demeanor.



And, Yes, I am on the faces book: http://www.facebook.com/ilyaxous
