About Me



Primarily working on a number of personal projects. Some of the projects that I'm particularly interested in working on at this point include:

* a series of Underwater shoots, so I'm looking for models with access to private heated pools,
* a Body-as-a-Canvas series, so I'm looking for models who have a location available to be body painted and want to give it a try,
* a Beach/Bikini series, and
* an Urban Vision series, so I'm looking for models with access to a loft, rooftop or other high-rise settings with dynamic urban views.

Always looking for MUSES for artistic inspiration and collaborative creation. I'm generally pretty good at coming up with the models that I need on a Trade basis, so I don't do a lot of hiring, but I do do some paid shoots. particularly with models who have appropriate locations available.

I'm primarily looking for female models in ages ranging from late teens to mid 20's. Models should be on the slender side with weight proportional to height (ex: 5'2" +/- 103#, or 5'8" +/- 119#). Experience isn't all that important, (I've taught modeling and photography, so I'm pretty good at coming up with the shots I need, even from inexperience models) but a positive, collaborative, attitude and dependability are.


* I want shoots to go easy and have fun doing them. No drama, no divas. (Read some of the comments that models have left me to get an idea of how my shoots go.)
* For most paid shoots and some project-oriented trade-offs I have a preshoot meeting to make sure we're on the same page and that things will work out as planned. I've found that those meetings make a significant difference in the final results. Meetings are held either at the location of the shoot, if it's a specialty session such as an underwater shoot, or at a local Starbucks/McDs.

I DON'T...

... schedule models that have another shoot scheduled the same day, either before or after (has never worked out well).
...generally work with traveling models. (Since most traveling models usually don't have time for preshoot meetings and regularly have more than one shoot scheduled per day.)
...generally work with models that have flexible work schedules. (I understand that a regular job has to take priority, but models with flexible work schedules tend to cancel frequently and repeatedly). with models who want to bring an escort, boyfriend or significant other. (I have no problem if you want to bring a girl friend, or even your Mom, if she's cool. But escorts and significant others are often too impatient and sometimes too controlling.)


Older... Semi-retired... Used to shoot/runway (don't anymore). My background is primarily editorial, contributing to national consumer magazines, trade publications and daily newspapers. I've also done a considerable amount of work for corporate publications. I was a frequent contributor to major photo magazines, inflight magazines and travel publications. I've traveled extensively to almost all the states in the U.S. as well as over 40 countries..
