About Me

UPDATE Jan. 2012

I am now only booking very limited (paid) engagements. If you're interested in working together, please contact me well in advance for rates and logistics.

Please note my new rates, including discounts for models and cosplayers! (To be clear-- I charge for my work, but I charge much less for more interesting projects.)


My work ranges from conceptual and fine art nudes to alternative and gothic glamour-- often within a single shoot. Rather than describe my style, I will let the pictures do their thousand-words-worth.

For information on my standard rates for portrait clients, please visit My Portraits Page at

Fashion designers, bands, and other potential clients other than standard portraits can contact me for more details on appropriate rates.


Finally, and probably most relevant for MM, I offer discounted rates for select models. (This is by invitation or application only.) For more info for models, visit:

Comic Book Cosplay models - $50 per 3 hours
Nude Models - $50 per 3 hours
Topless Models - $75 per 3 hours
Implied Nude Models - $75 per 3 hours
Non-nude Glamour & Fine Art - $100 per 3 hours

For these, you will be provided with at least 30 finished digital images, within one month. (Often much sooner.) Six hour shoots are also available.

If you are interested in working together, you should be 18+ (there is no upper limit), and you should have a unique/alternative look. I prefer to work with models who are creative, and energetic about creating something different.
