About Me

My photographic work is pretty varied.  I enjoy shooting models, of course -- but also subjects from insects to airshows.  My initial interest in photography was technical, but over the years, I've come to appreciate the artistic side as well. 

I enjoy digital post-processing work, from simple color correction to extending a photograph beyond what's "real" and into the surreal.  While I can appreciate that there are many "purists" who want to do everything in camera, I often seek to create something between a photograph and an illustration.  Some of my finished works clearly have photographic roots, but are often no longer "out of the camera" photographs.

TFCD
As time permits, I enjoy collaborating on images to improve both of our portfolios.  You need not be an experienced model, but you do need to tell me a bit about what you'd like to shoot.  If we agree to TF, I will be happy to provide you with 2-3 finished, hi-res images per look for your use.  You must be 18+ and sign a model release (my standard release is available on my website).

Of course, paid shoots do not require a model release.  If you'd prefer to pay me for time and use of images, please contact me for my reasonable rates.


Escorts
I will allow a single escort to paid shoots at my studio.  Your escort is a reflection of your own professionalism.  Ideally, your escort provides some function such as makeup and/or hair or at a minimum can bring a book and not interfere with the flow of our work.  I expect you to be a professional model -- at least in attitude, if not yet in experience.  I expect the same level of professionalism from an escort.


Minors
Please note that if you are under 18, your parent/legal guardian must get in touch with me to discuss your shoot.  Your parent/legal guardian must also be present during the entire shoot.  Sorry, you may not bring an escort in lieu of a parent/legal guardian.  I'm going to ask you to prove your age ... and I'm going to ask to see your parent/guardian's id too.

Digital Retouchers
If you're looking for images to play around with, please feel free to grab anything from my port -- or even ask me for a higher res version of something.  I'm happy to give permission for anyone to edit my images with the following stipulation.  You are not permitted to publically display a derivative work without my express consent to do so on a specific final edit.  Please send me your sample edit and I'll let you know.  I will not use your sample for anything other than considering your edit for my consent to publish.

In short, edit away and feel free to send it to me.  I don't get offended because someone saw something I did could be improved, changed or reinvisioned.

Friend Requests
I believe in networking!  If we've worked together or you or are referred by someone who has worked with me, please feel free to send a friend request.  If we don't know each other, send the request, but I'd also like to know a bit about you...especially if you're local! 

If you're here in response to a critique I posted, well I hope I helped.  If you feel I did, your friend request is welcome.
