Here is a series of the photos that I shot with Kyeri as the victim.
The photos in this series are available for purchase, in limited edition, signed and framed or shipped without frame. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.]]>
Being a porn starlet/nude model, Krysta has quite the collection of pictures of her entire anatomy. So, we decided to keep her clothes on for the majority of our shoot (aside from the dirty Polaroids taken with my 195 land camera). We have a retro set built out at Photo Bang Bang, complete with an old red rotary phone, a bunch of taxidermy and other stuff straight out of your grandparents basement. Krysta had a really nice lingerie getup, so she did her best quasi-pinup look (as I am not a pinup fan) and turned out these photos.
I love these photos … I love Krysta … and I love you and your Mother.

Location fees are not included in my rate. I can handle payment for location fees, but they are an additional cost and will be passed on to the client as a separate line item.
With every shoot, you receive a private online gallery with low-res, untouched proofs. You may download the proofs to keep as a reference. You will receive 3-4 fully retouched photos per “look” (‘look’) meaning change of clothes/hair/makeup/concept. These photos will be available online for download. You may print them locally or use my online fulfillment to have them printed. I will also provide you with a release to print your selected photos.
I have had the pleasure of working with many talented makeup artists and hair stylists in the Las Vegas area. Fees for makeup artists and hair stylists vary and will be determined per shoot. Once again, makeup/hair are NOT included in my rate, they are a separate fee and will be a separate line item in your invoice.
Anyway, I went back to an older style of shooting for me with my most recent shoot with Lisa. When I first started photographing models, I was doing a lot of back-lit photos using a softbox for fill at about 45 degrees to the right of the camera. I like the idea of the back-lighting becoming the key light, where controlling the image becomes an exercise in organizing chaos (dealing with all of the lens flares). There’s a sensuality to this style of lighting as well that I enjoy which lends itself well to photographing women… kinda like watching someone take a bath in light.
For a little behind-the-scenes info, I generally set my back lighting at somewhere between f/16 and f/22 using two lights shooting across from behind the screen. The screen is a panel had I sewn together made of ripstop nylon. The softbox I am using is a 47″ octagonal softbox that I am basically using as fill. My camera is generally set at either f/11 or f/16 depending on how crazy I want the effect to be. In some cases, I will create the fill with reflector panels, but that limits my ability to move around so having a light set up for fill gives me a bit more flexibility.
Here are some selections from that shoot:]]>
Life on Mars..that kind of sums up my experience here in Las Vegas. Lunar landscapes, the oftentimes strange and outrageous people. Vegas is unique. Unique is a great word to describe my friend Chris Bauder’s art. Lush, sexy, organic, candy-like are others…
“Mars ain’t the kind of place to raise your kids” is Chris’ current exhibition at the CSN Fine Arts Gallery. I had the opportunity to photograph Chris’ show and thought I would share the photos here.

Since I came out to Las Vegas, I have been looking for opportunities to work with fighters. I grew up a huge boxing fan, and with the corruption in the sport… plus a lack of a heavyweight champion that anyone cares about, MMA (particularly UFC) have stepped in to fill the void left by boxing being a shell of it’s former self. So, it was nice to get an opportunity to shoot a fighter, especially one I have watched so often on TV.
Enough talk… here are a few photos:]]>
This is Gerra. She is a model here in Las Vegas. We met when I shot her for a tattoo magazine cover (I’ll reveal the details from that shoot when I see the actual cover). Since then, I’ve had the opportunity to work with her a few times and we always seem to yield great results.
Special thanks to Vex Clothing and BlackMirror Designs for providing the wardrobe for these shoots. You can see some of the BlackMirror photos in the latest issue of Dark Beauty Magazine.
doo-doo ado… here are some photos for your viewing pleasure.
