Hand down this is the favorite image to date. “Watermelon Girl” was shot many year ago, the model was 19 at the time. We when down to an arroyo in Austin, that is a drainage area for flash floods. The image was shot for a charity event, a small bidding war erupted over it. I was very pleased, and I got dinner and drinks out of it.
Many genres draw my interest, I shoot my impression of a setting…, a cerebration…, an act. All my images are crafted using available light, reflectors, cards, and that most important ingredient: love of subject.
My goal is to create art of you and your body. To highlight the curves, the crevices, and to do so in a respectful manner…, all while capturing the essence of who you are at this particular moment. Explicit or not each image gives the subject some sense of privacy to her image.
Models come to me from many walks of life…, and for many different reasons. We work in collaboration, my model’s input is expected and welcome. Poses are offered, boundaries are pushed, yet respected. I do ask each model to come with an open mind, and a sense of play.
No releases are signed until each image is approve, I shoot for the art market only.
