About Me

After a lengthy hiatus from shooting full time, I am happy to be back to creating photographs as my professional passion. I am doing so with a concentration on boudoir and I am shooting that work mostly with models over the age of 40. I want to spend some time celebrating the gorgeous women who bring amazing life-experience to the images. (This does not mean I will not be shooting with younger models--just a current focus.)

I look forward to collaborating with you!

What people are saying about Bruce Caines:

"You are a very tall, bald, black man."  Steve Burns - Actor/Musician

"You make me feel very shortJessica Blaine Gildersleeve - Photographer

"'re a vegetarian and you shoot with film? Isn't that too many things?"  Unnamed model

"You are AWESOME!"  Maya Caines - Daughter


New York City based Emmy Award nominated director/photographer.

YES!! Yes...I directed three seasons of Blue's Clues. (That's for all you Googlers who ask if I am THAT Bruce Caines.)

While I begrudgingly joined the digital world, most of the images shared here are shot with film.  With rare exception, 90% of what you see is done in camera or the darkroom. Not Photoshop. (I'm not a hater, I just love analog.) I also try to capture most of what I want digitally, in camera.

I am on MM to find artistic collaborators. I only pay for jobs. I DO NOT pay for tests (TFP). Do not contact me for paid bookings. If I want to book you for a job, I will find you. Really, I will.

Tests are a collaboration and a trade of services/time/talent to create images we both want/need. If photographer, hair, makeup artist, etc. are not getting paid, well then...  wink  If you would like to be paid for a shoot, that is cool--but please do not expect free images! smile As somebody's mom once said (I think it was mine), you can't have your cake and eat it too.
