About Me

2019 marks my 14th year on  Model Mayhem, and while I've made some wonderful friends and great art over the years. 

I’ve pulled a lot of stuff out of the gallery and re-added it over time, so a lot of stuff is in the gallery that has been around a few years but is on it's second or third trip in the gallery so not a lot of views and comments.   

Retired professional wedding and commercial photographer, but still have a desire to create and follow up on some project ideas I never saw to their end back when I was in business. 

Going forward I think I’m looking at a few specific project ideas that I’ll be looking for models in the months ahead.  Some will be studio based, some might be location work.

*********************************************
Back to Basics
I want to revisit doing some simple basic model/actor portraits with a simple setup only this time shot on medium format film, maybe 80% black and white and some in color if it makes sense.  Short sessions - virtually any subject welcome.  No nudity.  Strictly TFP - no exceptions
My biggest inspiration for this is from
Mark Seliger’s Stairwell series:

and
Vincent Peters - The light between us.

*********************************************
Elements Project.
How do I explain this. In typical boudoir photography the woman truly is the subject. She is so beautiful, sexy, sensual, etc. the Elements Project is my attempt to explore sensuality as the subject in and of itself. Being sensual is the subject. In many ways it’s like doing bodyscapes that use light and shadow to highlight the form, but here using curves and contrast (elements of clothing against the skin for example to provide contrast and texture) to highlight the sensual aspect.  Mostly TFP but will consider paid models if their work in the lingerie and boudoir images is exceptional.  Mostly limited to female models but guys/couples - if you think you have an idea of a way to fit in this project let me know, but keep in mind I expect this series to be near 100% IG safe.
Inspiration is these simple fishnet images.

*********************************************
Stories
This is the one for models with series ink.  Implied to nude.  The basic idea is to mix classical fine art nude setup and poses with more alt models.  1 or 2 little tattoos doesn’t count - this is for serious ink.  Some of this may be shot on infrared digital as well as a mix of black and white and color film.  Open to both male and female models.  Mostly TFP but will consider paid if the model has some quality figure work examples. 
*********************************************
Bodyscapes and figure studies
Implied to full nude.  Pretty basic stuff.  Big thing for this one is no significant tattoos, consider stories above if this rules you out of the collection.  Mostly TFP but will consider paid if the model has some quality figure work examples. 
Basic examples.

for posing and what I consider "Fine Art" the Yerbury's in Scotland are a great inspiration of mine:

*********************************************
and of course I'm likely to do casual TFP shoots from time to time outside of these projects.


I've shot a lot on medium format film over the years and I find it just has a different depth to it, it's a different feel than digital, like comparing oil paints and watercolors, both can make wonderful imagery. 

Clarification on Film:
I once had a model state she wouldn't work with me since I shot film and she didn't need a bunch of drugstore prints - in her mind that's all you could do with film.  My film is sent out to one of the best film processing labs in the country and they produce very large scans of the negatives - it takes around 2 weeks to get the scanned images back, but in the end you've got large print ready JPG images for use online or to make your own prints from.  No drugstore proofs here. 



If you really think this is something that appeals to you hit me up on IG.

Follow your heart and never quit making art.
