About Me

I am an lifelong photographer, setting up a new studio for portrait & art photography after a long hiatus.
Inspirations include Yousuf Karsh, Angus McBean, Anton Corbijn, Duane Michals, Annie Leibowitz among others.
Heavily focused on creative lighting, both indoor & outdoors. I love black & white tonality, bodyscapes, low key, high contrast, abstracts, etc.  I love it when my photos tell a story - (too many simply pretty images out there) and  I strive to create a truly beautiful image of my subjects, whatever the context.
I am happy to work with new models for TFP to help them build their portfolio, especially while I am getting the studio up and running.
I take a feminist approach to shooting female models and always consider the implications of the shot in terms of respecting the model's integrity and the societal contexts of glamour and nudity.
Excited about working with models in the Triad NC area, especially those with any outstanding features, including striking faces/hair, tattoos, sculpted bodies, etc or those who have special talents that can be incorporated in the photograph.
