'The living model, the naked body of a woman, is the privileged seat of feeling, but also of questioning... The model must mark you, awaken in you an emotion which you seek in turn to express." Henri Matisse

Anyone can take their clothes off and get naked but not everyone knows how to be naked before the lens ... Umar

"There is no such thing as inaccuracy in a photograph. All photographs are accurate. None of them is the truth."[Richard Avedon]

Please look at all the portfolios to get an idea of my style.

Please do not think that taking clothes off before a photographers camera deserves compensation.

I have been in pursuit to catch that final elusive shot, that one calls perfection, which has eluded me. I have been shooting colored, b&win film and digital format for the last thirty years.

I enjoy working with both Amateur and Professional models. But being comfortable before the lens is required. The ability to take directions in posing is important.

Be confident and proud of all the freckles, wrinkles  and moles you have. I think reality is intriguing and sexy.

I sometimes do TFP/CD if it will benefit the two of us.  I will only provide you with finished quality work.

"Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand. - Albert Einstein"

I am not into collecting friends, but look forward to working with people with whom I can collaborate to express a vision that may be mutually benefical and possibly exclusive.To me friendship is more than a mouse click.
