have been a photographer for over 30 years. In the past I shot 35mm and
medium format black & white, doing my own wet darkroom work and
prints. I shot mostly landscapes, seascapes and nature.
a back seat to career and family for many years. Now that my daughters
are grown up and my wife is now called “ex-wife” I can now
pursue photography for my creative outlet. I started shooting models in
2004 and haven’t
looked back since. Almost everything I knew about photography was worthless
when it came to working with models. I had to learn a new mode of shooting
with more precise control of lighting and interaction.
My work consists
of pinup, fashion, glamour, glamour nudes and art nudes. My influences
range from paintings of the old masters; to Ansel Adams, George Hurrell,
and other photographers too numerous to mention; and to Vargas and other
classic and contemporary pinup artists.
In late 2006, I chose art nudes
as my main genre of photography. Of all the genres I worked in, I found
art nudes to be the most challenging and very difficult to do well. Anyone
can take a picture of a nude woman - just point and shoot. But art nude
is about lighting and how it plays on the human form. I love collaborating
with good models – what I call “creative
synergy” – where a
photographer and model make an inspired connection to create art.
I find inspiration
everywhere. Sometime it's the model herself that inspires me. I am
moving towards more concept oriented photo shoots that contain hidden
like Pink Floyd using The Wizard of Oz as the underlying
theme for their Dark Side of the Moon.
nudes are either homogeneous or heterogeneous. I want the model to
either merge with or diverge from the environment – harmony or
discord – it all depends on what I want to say.
