About Me

I am not a full-time-professional, but I am much more than just a "guy with camera"... I want to create stuff that makes you go "oh wow"...

I have been paid to shoot everything from magazine covers for the National Aviary, dress rehearsals at the Pittsburgh Opera, product art, guys in leather, headshots, a bunch of weddings and bar mitzvahs, erotica, rock concerts, nature, and a Pilates workbook.

I'm flexible enough to find everything photographic a fun challenge, creative enough to make anything a good show, passionate about my craft, full of energy and drive -- and I have been shooting long enough to have used Tri-X and Plus-X film, and remember when Fujicolor was new :-)

I enjoy shooting female nudes (in general, I think that women look better than men), but I'm not locked into one genre.  But if you want a photographer who knows what he's doing but doesn't have a crappy attitude and doesn't drool, grope or leer, then I'm your man...  I am happiest with a collaborative process, where both the model and the photographer bring their creativity to the fore, and each brings ideas and creativity to the table.  I can pose you, or I can wind you up and let you do your thing, but when two artists play off each other's ideas is where the best work arises.

If want to shoot TFP/TFCD with me, I'd be delighted  Details:

I hope both of us enjoy ourselves.  If it's "work", then it's probably not fun.  But if it is difficult, challenging, creative, collaborative, and rewarding -- that is fun!

I strive to shoot images that will enrich both our portfolios. 

I want you to participate in the process.  Tell me your ideas.  Tell me what you need for your portfolio, I'll tell you what I want to shoot.  If I can help you, and/or you can help me, then I'll do my very best to make great images.

I promise to get your images within 48h of the shoot.  In exchange, please show up on time :-)
