About Me

Just so there are no misunderstandings.
In 15 years of photographing models, I have not had occasion to pay a model. 
If you wish to pay me, great.  If not our shoots will be TF.


I'm starting my 16th year as a model photographer.  In that time I have photographed over 400 different women with well over 500 shoots.

I did 35 photo shoots this year with 21 models,  only 8 were for the first time. The rest I've photographed as many as 29 times over the years.   
It's now time to start anew. I want to put new faces and GREAT creativity in our portfolios.  Yes, I love when the model has ideas of her own.

I'm looking for models I have never worked with before.
If you've never been in front of a camera before, I'll work with you.
If you are returning to modeling, I'll photograph you.
If you need to redo or add to your portfolio, lets shoot. 

The shoots will be TF,  as normally you couldn't afford me. 
I promise you the best images I can.
You will receive a few edits and proofs the same day as the shoot.  And then we select the best.

My time is as valuable as is yours.
If your Aunt's girlfriend plans on dying right before we shoot,  please look for another photographer.  If you tend to walk very close to the edge of the earth, please don't call me. 

If you want to shoot lingerie or nudes but only do so for pay, we won't.  ALL the nude shoots I have done have been TF because the model wanted to.  Shooting nudes has NEVER been a requirement to shoot with me.

One more thing.  I do not have a studio.  For 15 years I've photographed models in their home or that of one of her friends.  Many hundreds of models have done so and loved it.  Yes, I'll shoot outdoors but with Chicago weather there will be postponements. 

Since you have gotten this far, I know we will have a fun, creative and productive shoot.

Credit Notes

I'd run out of space listing ALL the models I have photographed.  Many have been photographed numerous times, one has worked with me 27 times because our shoots get her jobs.
