About Me

I am an experienced award-winning photographer that currently lives and plays in beautiful Burlington, Vermont. And man, do I love to shoot!

With a developing "eye" and a more discerning nature born over the years of shooting, my photographs reflect a maturing understanding of the delicate relationship between subject and photographer. Each photograph is unique and represents a symbiotic "give-and-take" between the two. The subject gives of themselves and the photographer is compelled to capture, for all eternity, the exchange. That instant, that millisecond, is captured and with it all the sights, sounds, smells, and memories that draw us to that place again and again.

Good photographs are visceral and need no explanation they should move or compel us in some fashion, perhaps even to action. It is my desire to capture both the essence of the moment and the personality of the subject in each of my shots.

I especially enjoy working with models that are serious about their craft, whether they are new to modeling or a seasoned pro. They should be professional (on time, no attitude, love what they do, sober etc.) and should expect the same from me.

I have a heart for assisting new models with portfolio development and, to that end, I am open to do TFP/TFCD on a limited basis with select models. Shoot me an email and we can discuss this option.

Thanks for stopping by and checking me out...

Hey, I hope you are well! I’m a full time model in Australia planning to come to the USA around September. I’ve been working in the industry for many years throughout Australia, New Zealand & Europe in various styles, have been featured in many magazines/galleries & have also completed a certificate in make up artistry. I’m highly committed to paid work & would love to know if you or you know anyone else who might be interested in working with me.

I’m currently looking into getting an O1 visa to work in America & I would be looking to reach out to American agencies in supporting me with this process. If you have a job proposal for me, I’d love to know.
Thanks so much, kind regards & all the best. Hope to hear from you soon & work with you in future!
