About Me

                                                    Thanx. H

                                   Thank you for your interest in my portfolio.

                                                    Please read carefully.

1.    Have a specific concept in mind that would require my talents and abilities,
Or      2.  Have an interest in modeling fetish or kink,
Or     3.  Have an exceptionally long and beautiful neck. These models need not necessarily be nude.

All photographs are taken on film. I now work exclusively with an 8 x 10 view camera and sheet film. Exhibition quality prints are hand made in Platinum, a process patented in 1873. As such, I usually shoot about 20 or so frames in an hour +/-. Models are sent scans of the best images for their personal use.

                          Yes I will shoot implied or fashion but ONLY TFP basis.

Yes, I will pay a flat fee for nude models (M or F). I do not pay hourly, I do not pay travel or related expenses, I will not send an upfront guarantee by PP or WU.

Absolutely NO escorts unless they are participating in the shoot, either clothed (not paid) or nude (fee negotiable).

"Herb was awesome! I brought my boyfriend along (it was his first time modeling) ad we participated in a nude shoot together. Herb immediately made us feel casual and relaxed and gave great direction, while also allowing us freedom to navigate each other in a way that suited us the best. I can't wait to see the final pictures. We have seen some of the unedited photographs and were blown away by the mastery of Herb. He has a true gift for lighting and postures. I hope to work with him as much as I can." Read less
