About Me

I have extensive experience photographing natural subjects, particularly plants, minerals, and gemstones, and have written fifteen books on rocks and minerals.  I've branched out into glamour and art photography and my current projects combine the beauty of the female form with the beauty of the natural world.  The snakes that appear in some of the images are ball pythons: Cooter is a normal male and Betty Lou is a piebald female.  Both are very tame and love to have their picture taken.

Hosting
The guest room is always available for touring models if it helps with travel expenses and logistics.

References
Any of my models may be contacted for references.  Most have been here more than once and many have made use of the offer of lodging.

Escort Policy
Because of the obvious liability issues, I do not do any shoots involving children.  Since I am only working with adults, I have no need for the hassle of dealing with parents, boyfriends, escorts, bodyguards, friends, drivers, chaperones, etc.  If you must bring along an entourage when you go for a job, I wish you well but please seek work elsewhere.

"I had fun shooting with Robert and leaning about his hobbies/passions/bodies of work. One of my favorite moments was harvesting orchards with him from his greenhouse and seeing his bonsai collection. Posing with two of his snakes was another highlight from the shoot.
