About Me

February 17, 2024

I'm updating my bio again just to let people know that I'm still alive and still interested in photography.

I'm a good amateur photographer. Some of my views of life upset people all across the spectrum, but I don't like to talk about that stuff when shooting anyway. I just like to put everything out of my mind and have fun making creative images. I don't have a big personality, but I'm a good guy who likes to do fun shoots.

After a few very grim years, I had three shoots in 2022, but none at my house. In 2023, a model finally came to my house. That was wonderful. I also did a shoot in Denver. I'd still love to shoot with someone coming through Wyoming. I still love a variety of genres. I still produce good work although my declining health sometimes reduces my effectiveness. In the right situation, I would be willing to travel elsewhere to shoot with someone.

Beyond the Smugmug reservoir of images, some of my work is on my MeWe profile.

I've been doing model photography off and on since about 2011. I don't live near any active models, but I sometimes hire traveling models who are coming through Wyoming on I-80. I occasionally try to go to shoots where I can work with multiple models. I have serious health problems, and those problems are slowly driving me out of photography and everything else in life.

My primary portfolio is made of what I hope will be my best shots. If you want a quick sense of me as a photographer, this is the album where you should look. I've put additional photos in my other albums. For now, they are organized in a NSFW and SFW format. I haven't updated since 2017, and my newest work is at my offsite pages.

I don't have a single style that I'm trying to follow. I've enjoyed trying a few different things, and I'd like to try as many genres as I find models who want to shoot.

If you are a legitimate model or photographer and want to see more of the nudes that I've taken, please contact me for the password to my nude gallery on my SmugMug page.

The final two paragraphs here are from the original bio I wrote to be accepted on the site. They are still applicable, so I'll leave them in the bio.

I started in photography in the 80's taking pictures inside of caves. Because caves have zero light, they are a great place to learn photography. Photography is about light, and in a cave, the photographer has to provide all of the light and learn to manage all of the shadows. I loved shooting that way and learning tricks of light and shadows. I'm also a corrosion/materials engineer by profession. Much of my failure analysis work has involved photographing fracture surfaces and the texture of corroded metal. Again, I learned to use light and shadow to highlight features that were critical to understanding the failure mechanisms.

I like animals and have done a bit of wildlife and pet photography. Capturing the beauty of living things is a different challenge from capturing the beauty of scenes and inanimate objects. Showing the beauty of both subjects is rewarding.

"I worked with him in Rawlins when I was touring the west of the states. We used a range of props and wished that we could have shot with his snakes but I think we got some cool images anyway inside as well as outside. I’d work with him again in future and recommend him to others for sure. Thanks so much, kindest regards and all the very best. Wishing you well." Read less
