I have always had an affinity for art and photography. This, and the ability to find true beauty in the simplest of things have been the driving forces behind my works. I have photographed everything from nature and scenery to family portraits, but my favorite subject is the completely random and beautiful aspects of the human body. The human form bares a variety of attributes found nowhere else in nature. It's unique. It's pure. Regardless of shape or color, or even adornment such as tattoos and piercing, there is always beauty to be seen. Absolute beauty engulfs us every day - all we have to do is open our eyes and our minds to it.
Having the opportunity to find such beauty in everyday life and bring it forward for people to see, in the form of artwork or photography, is extremely satisfying and fulfilling for me. I take great care in finding what others overlook; the inner harmony and beauty of whatever subject I have in front of my camera. At times my work is very soft and natural, while other pieces display content of a more edgy or even slightly taboo nature. This is not my intent. I do not view my work as mild or wild. I look for beauty, passion, and inspiration in all of my subjects. And when I find it, I capture it.
While most of my work is intended for public show and publication, I also do the occasional client work. So, if you are interested in booking a private client session, feel free to contact me for pricing and details. In addition, if you are interested in modeling for my artwork, please do not hesitate to contact me. I am always looking for new models to work with!
