My focus is the creation of beautiful artistic nudes, though I will and do shoot other styles such as beauty, fashion, glamor, etc. This statement reflects my attitude on shooting artistic nudes better than anything I could devise: "If I have chosen the female form in particular, it is because beauty has been debased and exploited in our sensual twentieth century. We seem to have a need to turn innocent nature into evil ugliness be the twist of the mind. Woman has been target of much that is sordid and cheap, especially in photography. To raise, to elevate, to endorse with timeless reverence the image of woman, has been my mission – the reason for my work." Ruth Bernhard, from "Views on Nudes" by Bill Jay I've been in the business now about10+ years but have been photographing for nearly 35 years with everything from a Kodak Brownie to my Canon 50D today. I absolutely love photography and being creative. My current focus is Art Nudes mostly in Black and White with some color photos, shot outdoors and in the studio. I look to present the human form in an artistic manner which is creative, beautiful, and which honors the beauty and humanity in all of us. I DO NOT shoot erotica or fetish. Currently I am focusing on TFCD and TFP projects as money is extremely tight with me. I am running three concurrent projects: 1. Outdoor Nudes 2. Contorted/folded/twisted nude form 3. Human Body Project - shots of people who don't model These projects feed into public exhibitions, contests such as ArtPrize, and possible publication. I'm professional behind the camera and in the studio. I'm happily married and I'm not looking for a "girlfriend" or a hookup! I believe in respecting all my clients and models, no matter what color your skin, or your ethnicity! I am laid back and easy to get along with. I do not flake on models or clients, so PLEASE don't do it to me. When we have a firm shoot date I will give you multiple ways of contacting me, so if shit happens, just let me know! Feel free to contact those I've photographed and ask them about me. If you're interested in expanding your portfolio send me a message and I'll work with you!
