About Me

You are viewing the profile of the artist formerly known as photo212grapher

Mark Twain (Samuel Clemens) said, "The finest clothing made is a person's own skin, but, of course, society demands something more than this." Meet society halfway.

I'm a serious amateur wanting to produce the best I can, hoping to be a bit better today than I was yesterday. I love to collaborate to bring your ideas to life.  I refuse to specialize in one area, as Lazarus Long (by Robert A. Heinlein) said, "Specialization is for insects." My background is wildlife photography starting back in the 1970s, and the great outdoors becomes my studio; however, I do have an indoor studio available for inclement weather or when the concept fits being indoors.

I currently have three on-going projects which can be seen in my lists below: Top Hats, Moons, and Bodypainting. I hire gifted artists to do the bodypainting. Of course, I am always open to other ideas and concepts, as well. Models are not lifeless mannequins, but humans with artistic souls.

Models will receive digital proofs of all images, plus any edits of their few selected images. While I will retain the copyright, I am willing to sign releases for the models to use the images as they see fit, including professional retouching or commercial uses.

For those kind enough to leave an image comment, please also visit the model's portfolio and let her know you liked the image as well. For without the lovely models, we'd all be taking pics of 18% grey walls.
