About Me

Before you read my "story" please understand that if you message me I will normally respond immediately, this is because I have notifications set to notify me by email. I always have my phone with me, if I am shooting a reply may be delayed for a couple of hours. If it is nighttime in my Zone and yours, I may be asleep, but wait ten minutes to decide if I am or not. I get frustrated with the "login-leave-a-message-logout" and then you don't check your email for 5 -10 days. Many models have missed a shoot opportunity because they think that it is normal to have a ten day or worse, response time.I respond quickly out of respect for you, please return the respect. Expect my speedy reply.

I was a professional photographer in the 1970s, weddings (medium format), industrial (ToyoView 5" x 4"), and real estate (Mamiya RB67), studio portraiture (Bowens System).  A major robbery left me without a way to earn a living, and my life took a turn, and for the next twenty years I worked in and then started an automotive service business. Other jobs followed, but now I am back!  I am working toward a goal of exhibiting my work, but for that I need models, I have several themes I am working on at present , creating the shot lists and working on the story line to drive the shoots. I have seen a lot of other figure work a lot of it really pleasing, but there is a space for me to join as I believe that the work that I am preparing is fresh and different. I am not a plagiarist. I still have a lot to learn, particularly in post-processing.  Fortunately, working in the "film years" where every shot was expensive and where you had to know that every shot was well exposed, means that on the whole I try to get it right, in the camera. My Studio is a safe place for models: respect, consideration and gratefulness are abundant. It is well equipped to stimulate the imagination of photographer and model, 4 seamless backdrops an urban “lane” with bus-stop and street lamp lighting, I can create fog, rain and wind, and my studio is set next to a National Park and has some great environmental options for models and families alike.Whatever you would like to create or re-create in a studio we can do it.

I would like to see more people voting in the picture of the day and the 18+ comps as well.  It is just a bit disappointing  that the more blatant the display of labia majora the more likely is the image to earn picture of the day.  Flat lighting no composition but show the lady tackle and the prize is yours. The only way to get this competition back to rewarding excellence is to weed out the crap. The picture of the day title should mean something, MM moderators should call rubbish for what it is. Reclaim the competition from the pornographers and give it back to the photographers, kill the predictable and banal now!

Credit Notes

I have been on MM for almost 4 years now, and I have paid my dues. I use MM models as a first option, I encourage every model to rely on the Verified Credits system for advancing their careers. Just check out the top models, the ones who get to travel, they all use Verified Credits. It gives access to valuable information about a model or a photographer.
My portfolio has been the place where I placed a lot of images for the models who work with me, and so others can see their progress through a shoot . This means that not all of my images are fantastic, because it is not about me but the models. Some take a while to "get it".  Lately, when coaching models on posing and safety and professionalism, I have been more selective in posting their work. So soon I will need to cull my portfolio for the 4th time, but this time I will keep the best of every year, the models get all of the images within 4 days anyway, their progress is seen to them in the images they have already.
