About Me

I'm going to be blunt and I do not mean to offend anyone reading this, but there are a lot of amateur photographers on this site that own a camera gear trying to pass themselves off as professional. Admittedly I do not have a large portfolio of model images (thus the reason I am here), but there is a big difference between someone who does not have a alot of work in a certain genre vs. someone who owns a camera and just wants to take snapshots of pretty girls. ;) What makes it worse is you have these "pro photographers" getting comments like "great work" or "awesome shot" because an image happens to show a girl naked. Again to be honest, this is an insult to our profession.

I have been shooting for a little over 20 years now, with the past 8 years photographing people professionally. Though I'm probably best known for my Landscape and Liquid Art Photography, I have have been steadily building my modeling portfolio for the past several years. During this time I have had my work featured in many publications including MMA Online, Import Tuner, Tuner Evolution, Beasley Media Group, Paisley Equine Magazine, US Figure Skating and USA Gymnastics.

I really enjoy the process of bringing out the inner beauty of the people that I work with. My style is best described as environmental photo journalistic. That said I just build a 2,000 sq. ft. Professional Photo Studio to do much more controlled lighting fashion photography. I believe that being a true professional means someone who never stops learning and focuses on getting it right in camera first vs. trying to fix mistakes in Post Processing.

Due to my experience, I am primarily looking for Models who are looking for TFP to be used in bettering both of our portfolios. If the Model is exceptional then I am willing to pay though pending on their experience and the assignment. My main Pet Peeve is having to deal with individuals that are flaky. If you agree to be somewhere at a time, make all effort to honor that agreement.

Working with me you will find someone who really enjoys the process of making great memorable images. My goal is to work with individuals who enjoy learning and having some fun in a great environment!
