About Me

**** Available in Southern California!!!*****

Hello and thanks for stopping by. I travel, I shoot, I teach.
Check out the Blog for the latest work.
Trades(TFP) and Collaborations = Ask, lets see.

I am now only available for trades and collaborations one of two days a month. If you would like to view or get on the schedule, the easiest way is by following this link:

Most TFs are less than an hour and usually 5-10 images delivered from the session. Images are edited, but minimally retouched. All retouching will be done through me. Many of the work I post on MM are not retouched, and often straight out of camera. This should let you know my style and if it will fit what you are looking for.

If you wish to work TF with me, I ask that you have a concept, a great work ethic, and the following list.

-a Passport
-know the difference between a Reuben and a Rachel
-can climb a tree
-can swim, or fake swimming...just don't drown
-open to shooting nude
-open to shooting with bugs
-open to shooting when it's really cold
-can make a great cup of coffee...
-have a sense of humor...

Please don't contact me about trades and/or collaborations if your page says paid work only... You give what you get and you get what you give.

Credit Notes

I do not focus only on models, but also on businesses like salons, marketing, and other independent firms. I have worked with over 100 models just from MM alone, and I am thankful for the SMALL number of "flakes" or those that do not respect the team's time. Feel free to ask for a list of references before we shoot, and I would be glad to give them to you.

I have been published in both local magazines and also in national marketing campaigns, and always looking to increase the visibility.

Hey, I'm interested to come to America in future but at the moment while traveling is still difficult, I am offering remote shoots afternoons on Wednesdays or Mondays Melbourne time until March 8th. I'm currently working with another photographer to do these shoots but I hope in future to get my own gear and do more on location remote shoots. I have a CBD apartment with a rooftop balcony, large natural light windows, a range of backdrops, props & can use the buildings facilities of a gym, spa, pool & sauna. My rates for remote shoots would be less than what I charge for in person shoots. Let me know how many hours you would like me to quote you for and if you like to pay by PayPal or a bank transfer to my UK bank or AUS bank. We would tether the camera to the laptop and screen share so you can control the settings/shots & we could chat over FaceTime or WhatsApp during the shoot. The gear we have is a Sony full frame camera with a range of lenses available; 50mmf1.8, 85mmf1.4gm, 17-28f2.8, 28-75f2.8, 105f1.4gm, 70-200f2.8gm
Would love to know what style you would like to shoot & when. Hope to hear from you soon! All the best, kind regards.
