About Me

I am an artist, commercial photographer, and University Professor who teaches photography. After my family, making my artwork is my main priority. I would be happy to trade my time making images for your portfolio for your time helping me create my artwork.  I have 18 years of experience as a commercial photographer to bring to the shoot, and I am happy to create custom images for you. Feel free to contact me regarding my work, the first group of images in my portfolio are all part of my thesis project, " Gazing ". The images are all extended time pinhole photographs, taken in my subject's homes. The duration of the exposures is generally about 15 minutes, and I create figure drawings during the creation of the photographs. More images can be found on my website...

I am currently looking for people to collaborate on my art projects, co-conspirators as it were. I'm generally not that interested in meeting someone once, making beautiful images, and then moving on to the next challenge. I'm interested in making photographs that are about connections, and the artistic exchange between myself and my subjects.

Oh, and I have a new profile of infrared work, i'm using a specially converted digital camera. The profile name is 720nm, my first friend, or you can use this link:

Let me know what you think...

Note: Making my artwork, which involves photographing the human form in its natural state is my main priority after spending time with my family and teaching. I will assume that if you are sending me a friend request, you are interested in helping me create my artwork. If you are not interested in trading your time making art in exchange for me creating custom images for your portfolio, your other option is to hire me to photograph you. My rates are reasonable considering what I have to offer.
