About Me

Moving to the tri-cities area of north-eastern Tenn next month (August 2020) hoping to find some people relatively close by who enjoy modeling as much as I enjoy photography.  I use photography as my creative outlet and stress relief.

My "rules" are quite simple:
1.  I am a bit of a klutz at times, so when I get in an awkward position trying to get "that shot" and I lose my balance, CATCH THE CAMERA.
2.  If I have my camera in my hand, you are fair game.  So be careful when you pick your nose or fix that wedgie.  Seriously, some of the best shots are the more candid, not expecting it sort of shots.
3.  Have fun.

Always looking for new ideas, locations and people to shoot with.  Message me here, or add me on facebook.

Thank you!!

The story of "Lighthouse Girl"
I had a shoot lined up for this place back in June of '07 on a Sunday afternoon.  The model contacted me about an hour before to let me know the weather looked threatening and suggested we should cancel.  Since she was there and I was 45 minutes away, I agreed.  But since I had never shot, or even visited, this particular beach area, I decided to go on down anyway.  One of our cooler lighthouses is located there, so I was playing with the rocks and lighthouse and the dof.  This girl was there with her mother and dog, so I asked the mom if she would mind if I included her daughter in some of the pictures (I explained I was just starting out and experimenting with my new camera).  She was fine with that - I think the girl was just looking for interesting shells among the rocks.  I took about 70 shots total, unposed, just kind of random like this one.  I never got her name, and I had no idea if she was even local or a tourist.  So she simply became known as "Lighthouse Girl" . . . until someone finally recognized her  in this pic and contacted me on Myspace, about a year later.  I got in touch with her, turns out she went to a local high school, and we finally did a "real" shoot about a year after that.  We shot several more times, and then she moved to Rhode Island about a year ago.
Thanks, Tabitha!!
