While the majority of my clientele is from the athletic/fitness/bodybuilding world, I enjoy working with a variety of models. The eyes are the most important part of a shot, and I like collaborating with models who want to make the most of their individual look.

This isn't my full-time occupation, it's a passion for me. I try not to let money get in the way of art, so please let me know if you're interested in a trade shoot.

I'm very good at working with new models as well as experienced professionals. I'm light-hearted, yet dedicated to my craft. I know that sounds presumptuous, it's hard to find a word that means "I'm fun to work with, AND we'll get some great shots along the way".

My studio space, while humble, is a great place to create light-and-shadow images. I'm a self-described lighting junkie.

A photo shoot is a collaboration, and I welcome ideas. I'm interested in working with models who like to be creative and have fun, but also have a professional work ethic. I give lots of direction during a photo shoot, to best communicate what I'm looking for.

A standard model release is used for all trade shoots. Please note that a trade shoot is for portfolio building. After a shoot, I go through the pictures, choose the best from each setup, and send you an online link within about 2 weeks with a selection of watermarked shots for your use. Please, no post-editing or cropping of images.  Please no escorts or other guests at shoots, I need all your attention. Please see the Tags section on my profile for references, and feel free to contact any models I've worked with.

I used to list all the great models I've been privileged to work with. I've done just about 400 shoots with MM members, local and afar. I love this industry and I look forward to many more shoots!

"Andre is a wonderful photographer to work with. He is highly skilled at his art, and excellent at giving feedback, advice, and directions. He does so with kindness, and respect - making the experience of working together a pleasant one that leaves one looking forward to the next opportunity to work with him. His eye for an artful and enticing photo is uncanny, and he often is able to capture what he's looking for in a single shot or two. In my shoot with him, I felt comfortable enough to shoot implied nudes for the first time, and I truly enjoyed the experience. I appreciate the opportunity to try new things out, and the feedback I received that will help me grow. I highly recommend working with Andre - both for exceptional photos, and for the experience of working with him. Stephen" Read less
