About Me

"I just want people to stop and look at the damn pictures"
                                                                                        Helmut Newton

I shoot traditional and contemporary nudes, I shoot film, (mainly), in black & white.
No crap, No bull, No flowery idealistic self important language about how cool I am, and the great gear I use, or on the philosophy of what photography as ART, is supposed to be, bla bla bla,
I don't do boudoir, or glamor  gimmicks or photoshop,  I love to experiment while we work, the single most important thing is to have fun.
If I'm not any good at this I should have learned to shoe horses long ago.
I like people and people like working with me.
I have been a professional commercial advertising photographer for over thirty years in Chicago, as Waterbury Creative.
The latest project: "The New Nude Photo Workshop", compiling new work as examples for the classroom, teaching what the nude can and should be.
Working with a model MUST be a collaboration, ideas work back and forth. Without this I find that most work is just pictures.  All time will be paid model assignments, nobody works for free!  male and female models of all body types and modifications, are welcome contributors.
I believe that my work speaks for itself, I encourage new collaborators to get in touch with models that I have worked with for references. My reputation is very important to me as is your safety.

For traveling models to Chicago and Michigan . We have a lovely home close to downtown Chicago IL, and a home in Benton Harbor MI,(which is a hour south of Grand Rapids,and a hour west of Kalamazoo), we open our doors if your looking for a place to stay while your here working. You have your own space and 24hr access in and out. If you need help getting around or need a chaperone to a shoot,  we have been able to help, we are pet friendly, so if your traveling with your dog come on by. We know your here to work and your time is precious, if theres a places you want to see, just ask. we love to make new friends, and help while you stay.

I've received several friend requests from retouchers recently.  I don't use retouchers and don't accept FR's from them.  thanks for the interest.
