I am a photographer with an aerospace engineering background. I approach photography as a melding of art and science. With my engineering background, instructions and rules are always on my mind. The complex cameras of today require technical proficiency and understanding of the digital negative. This is contrasted by the creativity inherent in visualizing the scene, manipulating the model, still life, or myself, and capturing or generating the most pleasing lighting. The art and science come together when I recreate in print what the mind saw at the time of the photograph.
I am not opposed to digital manipulation. The true challenge is capturing the essence of reality. All photographs start as a physical manifestation as opposed to digital creations. Manipulating the capture of the manifestation, whether in a darkroom, or on a computer only builds upon reality to make a statement. Success is an image that is thought provoking or generates an emotional response.
I love having friends here. I'll also always approve friend requests. However, I'd love a tag mentioning why you want to connect. Doesn't have to be earth shattering, but I just like to know if you want to work together some time, just like my work, or are just trying to drum up business. Please take the time to drop me a tag smile
TF is what I now primarily shoot. I have several projects that I'm shooting TF currently. All require at least implied nudity. If you're interested, I can let you know more about them. My style focuses on the figure and is generally darker or more quirky in nature. I also do pure figure work as well.
If you ask me about shooting, I'll assume that you're looking for a TF shoot on one of my projects. Please keep my style in mind. I do not shoot TF fashion, beauty, swimsuit, or lifestyle.
I'm actively looking to shoot TF for ZIVITY drop me a line if you're interested, especially if you're already a model for the site!
If you're looking to build your book and like my look, I have very low rates for shooting what you want. Check out my website for rate details. It's definitely the easiest and fastest way to get images with my style into your port. I'm not a portfolio mill. I approach port development with the same eye as any other shoot, and enjoy the creative process.
I pay models only if I'm getting paid for the shoot myself. Otherwise, I do commercial sessions, TF*, or tears if I'm doing a commercial shoot pro bono.
