About Me

I will not be paying models for the time being. Thanks to all the great models I’ve worked with who have enriched my process with their talent and good nature.
I will take this message down if my plans change.

Welcome to my speck of dust in the model photography universe. I consider myself largely a portrait photographer, including the genre of artistic nudes. My influences range from Twentieth Century masters such as Edward Steichen and Lewis Hine to great Nineteenth Century painters such as Ingres, David and Degas. I am attracted to the iconic and the sublime, to quietude, understatement, and emotional depth.
I'm easy to work with and patience is one of my virtues. Most models enjoy working with me and no one has ever felt pressured, threatened, or harassed. Ask anyone who's worked with me. I'm a nice guy who's not looking for a good time.
I don't typically give out pics if I'm paying the model. It's fine, however, if the model uses the posted shots from my MM page for her own online port.

My Statute of Limitations:
I avoid nose rings, lip rings and other body modifications. A small stud is OK if it doesn't protrude though the nostril.
False eyelashes, fake nails, hair extensions and so on are also things I stay away from. I have shot models who wear these but I seek and prefer a natural look.
Tattoos: I avoid these whenever I can and I have never shot a model who was covered with them.
Touch ups: Ordinarily, I do minimal touchups. I'm pretty good at retouching, but it's time consuming and I don't like it that much. Generally, I prefer to photograph a person rather than an idea.
Escorts: I now accept only female escorts at my home studio. If we do an outdoor shoot, you can bring whoever you want, as long as he or she is civilized and unobtrusive.
Drive-by Friend Requests are not particularly welcome.
Comment for Comment: I don't bother myself with these offers and consider them to be empty calories.

"Working with Jack was productive, humorous, and fulfilling. We hit it off through our mutual goal of capturing images focused in on the spectrum of human emotion. I had a great time chatting with Jack and I learned a lot about photography in the process. If you get the chance to work with him; do it! He's friendly, funny, creative, and he knows his stuff!! :)" Read less
