About Me

I am a freelance photographer based in Purcellville, Virginia.

My goal is to create powerful images.  Be it traditional beauty, or something more visceral and moving, I do this for the love of the art.

I'm available for portraiture, as well as glamour and fine art images.  I am also available to help new models develop a portfolio, and can offer guidance on posing as well.

My photography is a strong artistic outlet for me.  As such, I am available for limited TFP with creative, reliable models.  There are a lot of flakes on the internet modeling scene, and I don't have time for that.  If you are interested in working together on an artistic collaboration of some sort, drop me a line and let's see if we can work something out!

Let me also mention that model comfort level and safety are both very important to me.  I maintain a relaxed, professional environment for all my shoots.  I have references available, and feel free to contact any of the models I have worked with.  You are also welcome to bring an escort to the shoot, as long as they are non-intrusive.

Also, about friend requests and tags.  Call me old-fashioned or stuffy, but I only friend people who I've had some communication with.  Also, if you're interested in working with me, don't leave a tag -- message me.
