About Me

I am an amateur but serious photographer in Northern Virginia.  (I try to be in Berlin every summer.)  For more than a quarter century I have been doing these arsty, geometric, anonymous, abstract B&W figures studies.  I am so old, I still use film at times (but now limited to playing with antique printing).  I show in galleries (now very rarely but still sell some stuff!) so in general I need a release.  I do not shoot often but a couple times a year I am looking for models who like my work and would enjoy working with me on creative projects.  I use female models almost exclusively.  A good model is, of course, a pleasure to work with but don't worry if you have no experience, I will pose you down to the fingertips if need be.  I sometimes pay modestly but find that most prefer to work in exchange for images.  Not looking for any particular "type" but a little muscle tone and flexibility are nice, tanlines are bad.  A little ink is OK but too much might be, well, too much unless you want to do a record of an entire ink project.  In general, I am interested in anything that is beautiful, interesting, or fun.  Also, you can't tell from my portfolio, but I CAN take pictures of people with their clothes on, so ask about that possibility.  It has happened before. I have collected a few examples in a dropbox file:

Tech:  I now shoot mostly digital these days except for special printing projects.  Just got a very nice new camera, Woohoo! and still experimenting with it.  I have a rather constrained studio space so there will be no swinging from chandeliers but for the abstract work I do, it works just fine.

I tend not to update the photos on this profile very often, i.e. never.  For new images, check out the tumblr page above: (And FOLLOW me on tumblr!!)

Also, I have new work on Model Society:

I have some travel photos available at  (Just started the tumblr thing so not a lot there but some interesting images and I expect to update it regularly.)
