About Me

I am an award-winning Minnesota photographer, based in the Twin Cities area of Minneapolis and St. Paul.

I enjoy various kinds of photography but it's my love of working with models that really keeps me pushing myself to settle for nothing but the best possible photograph.

I have been doing photography for about 40 years, and I have been working with female nude models for 25 years now. 20+ years of experience in Photoshop, so I can easily optimize each photograph to the achieve the desired look (as long as the initial photograph is of usable quality to begin with). This includes beauty retouching such as removing moles/scars, digital "tummy tucks", and of course the usual color and brightness adjustments, global or in selected areas.

Besides Minnesota and Wisconsin I have worked with models in Nevada, California, Utah, Hawaii, Canada, Mexico, Germany, South Africa, Taiwan and the Caribbean.

I mainly work with paid models but am open to occasional exchange work with models and makeup artists who wish to develop their portfolios.

You will find that I am easy to work with - I will gladly provide guidance and directions for poses, but I will just as happily follow along as you express yourself in front of my camera.

Let's create some great photographs, in the studio or outdoors!

I travel to Germany occasionally during summer.
