About Me

As one of the Midwest's best photographers of the fine art nude, I work primarily with models wishing to serve as subjects or interested in expanding their portfolios in this regard.  Examples of my work with fine art nudes may be seen at my site (  If you are looking to model for me or expand your fine art portfolio with an experienced and tasteful photographer, please contact me.

Famed photographer Jock Sturges says of me:  "You are ... one of the best small camera [i.e., digital SLR] photographers I know."

If we have a session scheduled, please don't flake.  Please be considerate:  when I schedule a session with you, I'm committing to at least three hours of time before and during the shoot, time that would otherwise be devoted to something else, and I'm also committing to invest a fair amount of time working on the photos, time that is not available for me to schedule other shoots.  (I am very responsible in this regard:  you will see results usually within 48-72 hours of our shoot.)  If for any reason you can't keep our engagement, please let me know  If you are new to modeling nude and change your mind, just say so; we're most of us adults around here and will understand.  Photographing nudes since 2001, I have NEVER flaked on a model, and only rarely have I asked one to reschedule.  I won't flake on you; don't flake on me.

Having said that, a sincere "Thank You" to all the models I've worked with who are considerate, timely, responsible, and just plain nice -- it is you who keep me doing this thing.

Credit Notes

Over 200 collectors worldwide have purchased more than 900 of my prints. 

Prints of my photographs have been in 29 shows, many of them juried, and winning awards in many of them, country-wide.

My most recent book is now available:  The Box -- Beauty Constrained.  One hundred twenty pages, over 150 photographs.  Check it out at .

Featured in the Winter issue of NUDE Magazine, including two of my MM models. 

Two of my photographs were selected as "finalists" in the massive French PHOTO magazine contest (50,000 entries), and one was printed in the January 2009 issue of the magazine.  This was the second year in a row my photos have been selected and printed.  (The first year's included photo may be seen at

I am represented by a gallery in Minneapolis.  I am published internationally and several monographs of my work are available.  A set of my erotic nudes is held in the permanent collection of The Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender, and Reproduction.  Other photos accepted for juried shows (some of them winning awards) may be seen at .  You may also see there the thirty of my nudes included in the May 2008 and 2009 The Nude in Minnesota shows.

Following are select models with whom I have done artistic nudes.  I don't do fashion, I don't do commercial, and I rarely even let "glamour" intrude on my style.  (This list got too long in its full version -- over forty MM models, not to mention dozens who have come to me from outside MM -- so I'm cutting back to only those who still model and with whom I've worked repeatedly.)

Megss (MM #452684) - I've worked with Meg over twenty times since 2003, and I cannot speak more highly of her.

Abigail Stewart (MM #21820) - Abigail is a real pro, although she's modeling less these days.

Paige Kelly (MM #482500) - Gorgeous, TALL, and a very accomplished fine art model.  Has moved out of state.

Julia Bendel (MM #741952) - Julia has a nearly perfect body, and her photographs show she knows how to use it.

Annie Boddie (MM #1204976) - Annie and I have worked together to fine-tune her modeling skills -- get to her while she's still relatively unknown.

GigiCide (MM #1233410) - Relatively new to the modeling scene, but she has an innate modeling sense that will make rewarding a session with her.  She's in school now out of state, so is only infrequently available.

Oliviah Lee (MM #1430210) - A really extraordinary young woman whose modeling instincts are far better than the number of times she's modeled would suggest.  She lives far away, but may visit Minnesota again.  I can only hope.

E M H (MM #1400852) - Very tall, very thin, and excels in all her modeling -- she is an artist, too.  She moves around, so catch her if you can.

TammiRose (MM #1162229) - Tammi sports an alternative look, but if you are looking for something different in a dynamic and fun package, she'll give you her all.

TajLove2010 (MM #1618051) - Two very dynamic sessions and a wealth of wonderful photos -- I highly recommend Taj.

Avery Claire (MM #1651751) - Already quite comfortable in front of the camera, she's inventive and enthusiastic.

Edith J (MM #2021532) - Her dance training and enthusiasm yield sophisticated and exciting poses reflecting abilities far beyond her years.  I cannot describe how very pleased I am with this young woman's modeling talent.
