About Me

Thank you for your interest in working with me. I believe that a clear understanding of expectations by all parties is required for a successful photoshoot. Please read this over and let me know if you are still interested.
I prefer paid shoots, meaning I pay you for your time. This allows me complete creative control. I am willing to work on a TF basis as an add on to a paid shoot or as an independent shoot if the concept is interesting and creative. Once we are “off the clock” and working for one another, the shoot would become completely collaborative. I like to work in two hour blocks with as little down time as possible.
I am primarily interested in artistic photography. I am less interested in glamour, fashion, boudoir, pinup or beauty photography, although I am perfectly willing to work in those genres during TF time. For examples of the type of photography I aspire to, see  Artistic photography usually does not require extensive hair styling or makeup. The emphasis is on the human form presented in creative and original ways.
As it has throughout history, art often involves depiction of the nude human form. The model may not be the main subject of some images. This is another reason that I prefer paid vs. TF shoots.  Many of my concepts would not make for good portfolio shots for other genres.
I do not shoot pornography, but I am interested in exploring eroticism on the level of the symbolists or surrealists, incorporating themes from the unconscious and dreams.
My studio is a dedicated space in the basement of my newly built home in far west Joliet. It is very private and clean. If you feel the need to bring an escort the first time we work together, I understand. They will be able to wait in a comfortable tv/conversation area just outside the studio and enjoy any refreshment I have to offer. They cannot be involved or give input in the shoot, paid or TF.
I prefer no or minimal tattoos, however many of my concepts involve silhouettes where tattoos are not an issue.
If you’re still interested in working together, I would welcome further conversation and hopefully a shoot soon. I am very flexible on timing, available days and evenings, weekdays, and weekends.
Hope to hear from you,

"Jay was professional and accommodating, with an inventive shooting style. He fostered trust during our first session and had a creative approach when capturing the images he was envisioning. There was excellent communication throughout the entire process and great feedback when collaborating, especially when it came down to reviewing our favorite photos. I enjoyed our time together and I am inspired to continue more creative works in the future!" Read less
