About Me

Thank you for visiting my site here on Model Mayhem!


I have done all types of photography for many years since I discovered the pleasure and enjoyment of photography in the early 1960's with the Kodak Brownie Hawkeye where the photographer actually aimed it holding the camera at waist level and looking down at the viewfinder of the camera. I like all types of photography ... people, nature, landscapes, sports, architecture, etc.

I currently shoot with a digital Nikon D7000 and I  have traveled to places like Washington, Chicago, Charleston (beautiful city), San Antonio, Tampa (lots to see and do there), Mexico (very interesting) and other places with my only purpose to photograph the beautiful sights and people that I see. I do have studio equipment (reflectors, strobes and continuous lighting).

I am located in Wendell, NC (12 miles east of Raleigh) and I am available on a select basis for photographing models in exchange for trading images for time. I use Photoshop for editing and will edit select photos for the model. I do this purely for the pleasure of it and not to generate any personal income from my photography!

When I shoot trade for time I expect the model to actively participate in the shoot. Tell me what you need for your portfolio and feel free to make suggestions. I would like for the model and myself to get images that enhance both our respective portfolios while both of us enjoy the photo session. When shooting models, I particularly enjoy shooting close up head and shoulder and implied nudes (see my lists "Beautiful Head and Shoulder Shots" and "Implied Nudes" on my Model Mayhem Profile). I do ask that the model sign a model release form and, at the same time, I will provide that model with all unedited images to select some for me to edit. After the model has had time to look at the photos taken at the shoot, I would really appreciate any constructive criticism from the model. Also, I do occasionally pay a reasonable modeling fee as well as provide some edited images.

If you are a model and would like to do a TF shoot, just message me and tell me what you have in mind. I promise to get back to you within a couple of days.
