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 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 "getting married". 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 likely lose their job because of what they do on their own time (being photographed), which I think is ridiculous; the respective 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?
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.
