About Me

NOW ONLY FOCUSING ON UNDERWATER WORK!
After 2 heart attacks, a triple bypass and a 10 year hiatus, I am back on MM. Upon returning I've decided to solely focus on the one area I'm the most passionate about… creative fashion and fine art underwater photography.

I'm formally trained as a graphic designer and got out of Art Center, Pasadena in 1991. In addition to graphic design and photography, I am also an illustrator, a former club DJ (Dr StEvil), a writer, a college professor, a lecturer, a dad and a grand dad. I also have a homeless ministry. http://www.hugs4homeless.org

Note- On my Top 12 Friends List, Wardrobe Exchange is basically me, as 99% of all the wardrobe on my past shoots was done by me. After shutting down my old studio, I let go of most of my massive wardrobe collection, but I kept a few things and am building things back up.

UNDERWATER SHOOT CHECKLIST-
1. Do you swim well with or without clothes & shoes on underwater?
2. Are you able to hold your breath & open your eyes underwater?
3. Do you swim gracefully?
4. Can you pose underwater?
5. Can you make facial expressions underwater?
6. Do you have a lot of stamina?
7. Do you have noticeable tan lines?
8. Do you have experience in dance, gymnastics or other sports?
9. Do you have the ability to act?
(Facial expressions & body language are very important!)

Note-If you're paying me for a shoot and can't do any of the above things, I'll still shoot ya... even if you're drowning! wink Just kidding.

DO YOU OR SOMEONE YOU KNOW, OWN A PRIVATE SWIMMING POOL?
If so, please PM me, I’m on the lookout! Thank you.
