About Me

ABOUT ME:
Yeh, I'm that overnight "International Award-Winning Fitness, Fashion and Men's Physique photographer" that came out of no where and is now seen everywhere — though it's taken me 12+ years to get here. Welcome to my portfolio. I am owner of the very popular Men Of Utah™ agency and studio, and I shoot primarily in Las Vegas, Nevada and Salt Lake City, Utah.

As seen in my photos, my models are my focus, not the scenery nor attire or some piece of their anatomy.  To me, models are not glorified coat hangers. Though I shoot nudes, and win frequently on MM, I am not focused on erotica and I am not interested in following the path of many of the photographers whom I admire, who tend to solely rely on nudes to validate their photography.

I feel I am a full package of photographer, model manager and publicist, and as an ex-physique model myself, I have intentionally broken the mold as to how a male model should be treated before, during and after the shoot.  Coming from that background, I also feel I know how a male wants to be directed to look his precise best without diminishing his ego..

Each year, I gather a team to work with me on projects for international brands such as Pump! Underwear, Sukrew, Baldrick Benjamin, Meat Underwear, Vicedman, Helsinki Athletica, Cellblock13 / Timoteo, Modus Vivendi, Walking Jack, Alexander Cobb, and Turlock & Co.

I am a regular "contributing editor" to the international print magazines (many examples of which can be seen in my MM portfolio).

My first book, SUNDANCERS: The Men Of Utah™, was a kickstarter success, funding itself in less than two weeks, and my second book, BOUNTIFUL: The Men Of Utah™, was funded by an artistic endowment.

Despite the accomplishments, I am still only a one-man-show with an ambition that is sky high, precision and motivation that gets me psyched every morning, and a love for the process.  I expect the guys to be the same — motivated, genuine, communicative and inspirational... in whatever modeling direction they would like to pursue.  This is my career; let's help you make it yours while keeping our heads on straight and our integrity intact.

(Then I gave up... Model Mayhem is geared toward featuring females... The men are secondary, if not non-existent.  I'll update my port every once in a while, but write me directly should you want to try to work... As a fair and interactive collaborative site, MM suffers.)
