'The living model, the naked body of a woman, is the privileged seat of feeling, but also of questioning... The model must mark you, awaken in you an emotion which you seek in turn to express." Henri Matisse

Anyone can take their clothes off and get naked but not everyone knows how to be naked before the lens ... Umar

"There is no such thing as inaccuracy in a photograph. All photographs are accurate. None of them is the truth."[Richard Avedon]

Please look at all the portfolios to get an idea of my style.

Please do not think that taking clothes off before a photographers camera deserves compensation.

I have been in pursuit to catch that final elusive shot, that one calls perfection, which has eluded me. I have been shooting colored, b&win film and digital format for the last thirty years.

I enjoy working with both Amateur and Professional models. But being comfortable before the lens is required. The ability to take directions in posing is important.

Be confident and proud of all the freckles, wrinkles  and moles you have. I think reality is intriguing and sexy.

I sometimes do TFP/CD if it will benefit the two of us.  I will only provide you with finished quality work.

"Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand. - Albert Einstein"

Hey, I hope you are well! I'm a full time model in Australia planning to come to the USA around September. I've been working in the industry for many years throughout Australia, New Zealand & Europe in various styles, have been featured in many magazines/galleries & have also completed a certificate in make up artistry. I'm highly committed to paid work & would love to know if you or you know anyone else who might be interested in working with me?

I'm currently looking into getting a O1 visa to work in America so I would be looking to reach out to American agencies in supporting me with this process.
If you have a job proposal for me I'd love to know.
Thanks so much, kind regards & all the best. Hope to hear from you soon & work with you in future!

I wanted to introduce a new photo studio, Brooklyn 315. It was started and is run by myself and fellow artist. We recently acquired the space and are now opening it up to share with the community. It’s a beautiful 525 sq ft space with giant window and 12’ ceilings, lots of amenities, equipment, etc.
