Around every corner in the Pacific Northwest seems to lie an incredible natural scene. This session was my second on this year’s excursion. Working with model Mario, we ended up deep in a canyon that had suffered horrible fire damage. There was a wonderful connect with Mario’s energy and the location. He comfortably engaged with […]
Introducing a model with such a title leads one to believe something amazing happened. And as a last minute addition to a crazy shoot schedule, he did just that. Reaching out through Instagram, I connected with this young man and Alex was able to be included in an already astounding repertoire of images. As luck
One part of the world has truly captured my imagination. Portugal and Western Spain, especially the Extremedura, have presented me with a plethora of stunning locations that cannot compare to anything in the US. The mind-blowing history alone is enough to peak my interest. But the staggering vistas and phenomenal architecture are just stellar!
Once again, Instagram has helped pave the way to new friendships and model potentials. Back in summer of 2022, I reached out to this incredibly handsome bodybuilder who was working in a nearby state. His enthusiasm to shoot was extraordinary. I finally made the decision to attempt a roadtrip to test him out. His name
As luck would have it, after the difficult weather in Detroit with Bruno, a brief Indian summer gave me the opportunity to attempt one more outdoor shoot.

Bruno has tremendous fortitude. After spending one day exploring a couple of schools, the next was focused on slightly more open scenes including a church and an abandoned engine plant.

Deserted spaces are not empty. They are vessels that contain memories of human life if you know how to see them. I grew up viewing forgotten structures as more than just ruins – they were symbols of man’s creativity, edifices of human ingenuity, definitive marks left in the world. They became the seeds.
The 2022 photography season truly began with Portugal. It was the first time that I felt comfortable enough to attempt a foreign country by myself. Armed with research done online, I had several destinations and a few contacts to assist with what became some of the best location work I’ve shot. This trip energized the
I am still trying to catch up with editing the summers activities. This month I’d like to feature work shot with the sweet Oliveé from New York. I was really impressed with his enthusiasm especially after a hideously complicated flight, which seems to be the norm anymore. Surprisingly he was unfazed with a calm demeanor
Working with Zach is symbolized beautifully with this first image – a tempting vine that wraps around your mind – tangling your imagination – producing stunning shots! Dramatic writing aside, I determined that our second session should involve a field trip to Detroit. Time to get down and dirty in the field, so to speak.
