About Me

I’m a retired businessman and I have been doing photography for about 30 years. About 10 years ago I helped a young woman put together her portfolio. We took 100's of shots and picked the best 10 in each of several catagories. Today she's modeling full time. She's based in Texas. No, she's not a super model but she's doing well. Two other girls that I've helped are currently working in Europe (one is based in Milan and the other in Florence).

I help aspiring models prepare their portfolios and I also conduct two 10 week coaching sessions per year - each class takes about two hours. Because I do all types of fashion photography these sessions cover the basics in Runway, acting, and dance. To succeed as a model today girls find themselves competing with dancers and actors, so we try to shorten the gap.

Models are expected to supply their own outfits and to do their own makeup.

I believe in having fun at the shoot and I expect models to take directions and to be an active participant in the project. I love to work with creative and active people.

Although I prefer to shoot using natural light, my photographic style is dictated by the model and her experience. I only work with women 18 years of age or older unless they are accompanied by a Parent.

Modeling agencies need models of all body types and looks so don't be put off by claims that you can never be a photo or fashion model. Where would we be today if Kate Moss and Tyra Banks had listened to these people.
