The photo in upper right corner will typically be my "pick" of the day or week... simply a photo that strikes my fancy from the gallery. The emphasis in these galleries is "realism". I enjoy capturing brain & body models... soccer moms, those who hold a professional license (that generally requires a college degree), those who are well traveled and spoken, university educated military moms, and college grads who have real goals- you know, the 20 year old who aspires to study cellular/molecular biology at Johns Hopkins as opposed to the typical internet model wanting to be the next Playboy Playmate (of all things), and or the lofty goal of "getting married" (thatís a goal?). I like photographing that which is controversial, progressive, smart, and or socially daring or damning. I like keeping their secrets; I loathe hypocrisy...
I fancy "partial" photography of consenting clients who would otherwise likely lose their job because of what they do on their own time (being photographed) if their respective employer knew, which I think is ridiculous; the models and I get a kick out of their photographs being viewed all over the world by literally millions of people who have no idea who they are; Someone's mom? Your child's 3rd grade teacher? Your daughter or wife? Young military Lieutenant? Sunday school teacher? Elderly care worker? Registered nurse? Licensed engineer? Attorney?
I think taking the long route; finding, then attempting to capture, the true beauty of a woman is not only more worthwhile, but a good bit more fun. We hope you enjoy the gallery.
Thank you for stopping by. Great things to come.
