About Me



Used to shoot a lot of high fashion/runway (don't anymore). Now I'm primarily working on a number of personal projects, adding to my photo library and occasionally handling commercial assignments for select smaller fashion brands..

Some of the projects that I'm particularly interested in working on at this point include:

* a series of Underwater shoots, so I'm looking for models with access to private heated pools,
* a Body-as-a-Canvas series, so I'm looking for models who have a location available to be body painted and want to give it a try,
* a California Casual beach oriented fashion series, and
* an Urban Vision series, so I'm looking for models with access to a loft, rooftop or other high-rise settings with dynamic urban views, or models who might want to try shooting in the LA Art District

I'm primarily looking for female models in ages ranging from late teens to mid 20's. Models should be on the slender side with weight proportional to height (ex: 5'2" +/- 103#, or 5'8" +/- 119#). Experience isn't all that important, (I've taught modeling and photography, so I'm pretty good at coming up with the shots I need, even from inexperience models) but a positive, collaborative, attitude and dependability are.

I'm generally pretty good at coming up with the models that I need on a Trade basis, but I frequently do paid shoots. particularly with models who have appropriate locations available.


I want shoots to go easy and have fun doing them. No drama, no divas. (Read some of the comments that models have left me to get an idea of how my shoots go.)
* I always have a preshoot meeting before deciding whether to shoot or not. Meetings are held either at the location of the shoot, if it's a specialty session such as an underwater shoot, or at a local Starbucks/McDs.
* If you want, bring a girl friend to the shoot (but no boy friends or significant others, they're often too impatient and sometimes too controlling.)
* I don't schedule models that have another shoot scheduled the same day, either before or after (has never worked out well).
* I understand that a regular job has to take priority, so I try not to schedule shoots with models that have flexible work schedules (they cancel frequently and repeatedly).


Older... Semi-retired. My background is primarily editorial, contributing to national consumer magazines, trade publications and daily newspapers. I've also done a considerable amount of work for corporate publications. I was a frequent contributor to major photo magazines, inflight magazines and travel publications. so I was frequently able to fly free, I've traveled extensively to almost all the states in the U.S. as well as over 40 countries..

Hey, I'm interested to come to America in future but at the moment while traveling is still difficult, I am offering remote shoots afternoons on Wednesdays or Mondays Melbourne time until March 8th. I'm currently working with another photographer to do these shoots but I hope in future to get my own gear and do more on location remote shoots. I have a CBD apartment with a rooftop balcony, large natural light windows, a range of backdrops, props & can use the buildings facilities of a gym, spa, pool & sauna. My rates for remote shoots would be less than what I charge for in person shoots. Let me know how many hours you would like me to quote you for and if you like to pay by PayPal or a bank transfer to my UK bank or AUS bank. We would tether the camera to the laptop and screen share so you can control the settings/shots & we could chat over FaceTime or WhatsApp during the shoot.

The gear we have is a Sony full frame camera with a range of lenses available; 50mmf1.8, 85mmf1.4gm, 17-28f2.8, 28-75f2.8, 105f1.4gm, 70-200f2.8gm

Would love to know what style you would like to shoot & when. Hope to hear from you soon! All the best, kind regards.
