About Me

Now shooting an entirely new high-res portfolio! So, if you are a model, stylist, clothing-designer, or a H/MUA, and also looking to do some TF work, NOW is a great time to get in touch with me!

I shoot at the many wonderful locations here on the Big Island, and also in my daylight-studio near Hilo. I am happy to work with beginners, and love to work with experienced models, dancers, yogini's, and traveling models.

My CURRENT INTERESTS include fine-art work, tribal-looks, swimwear/lingerie, bodypaint, fantasy concepts, unusual portraiture, alternative fashion, and whatever crazily-creative things we can dream up together. I love creative collaboration, and have done it extensively on a professional level. [See "HISTORY" below.]

PAID fashion work, model-comps, actors' head-shots, creating IG & social-media content, personal & family shots, covering events, etc. are also very welcome.

A LITTLE HISTORY: I am a very experienced fashion-photographer who has also worked in many related capacities. I've had studios in Chicago, Seattle, and here on the B.I., and have shot runway fashion in Italy, built sets and done special-effects for national print-ads and tv-commercials, worked in professional darkrooms, created an art-publishing start-up, etc. After many years away from both the film-cameras and the fashion work that once filled my life in places such as Chicago and Rome, I now take things more casually here in rural Hawaii, and am most interested in co-creating beautiful and/or arresting photographic art of all kinds.

You will find me to be open-minded, skilled, humorous, considerate, well-educated, easy to work with, and DOWN TO SHOOT!

I can't emphasize strongly enough how important these are to the success of our efforts. PLEASE DO communicate –reliably, clearly, and promptly! If you can't make a point of doing that much, and then following through as needed, please don't waste my time!

I AM EASILY ABLE TO HOST TRAVELING MODELS, even for extended stays, so don't be bashful about asking! Please scroll down through the hidden Tags and Comments below for related testimonials.

What are we waiting for? Let's have some creative fun!

"He is a great professional photographer who lives in beautiful jungle. We were shooting at a beach near his place and hiking at night and shooting right next to active lava. It was an unforgettable experience in my life. If you visit hawaii’s big island, you should model for him. You will take some beautiful memories of the magnificent nature there. and He is the kindest man I've ever seen. :)" Read less
