WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO PICK UP A CAMERA?
I have a talent for making people smile. Photographing people at important moments has always made me happy. I still have a lot of my first prints and negatives - they were processed and printed the old fashioned way and still look very good 22 years later.
WHAT PARTICULAR CHALLENGES DO YOU FACE WITH EROTIC PHOTOGRAPHY AS OPPOSED TO OTHER GENRES?
I actually find erotic photography easier than other genres. With erotic photography your subjects are typically more experimental in the first place and are very open to concepts or ideas that traditional folk would run away from.
DO YOU PREFER TO SHOOT WITH FILM OR DIGITAL?
I have bid a fond farewell to film. Using film taught me the fundamentals of photography. Shooting in digital is just the next step in photography's evolution.
WHAT KIND OF SHOOTS WOULD YOU LIKE TO WORK ON IN THE FUTURE?
WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU HAVE FOR ANYONE JUST STARTING OUT IN THE INDUSTRY?
Learn the basics and how to use your camera, inside and out, with and without lights. You would be surprised how adjusting a few settings could transform an image from ok to awesome.
ARE THERE ANY OTHER CREATIVE MEDIUMS YOU WORK IN?
I would like to think that I can still make a decent film.
WHAT KIND OF MUSIC DO YOU LIKE?
I'm a fan of anything Maynard James Keenan touches. I'm a fan of anything JAG touches.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO FOR FUN?
Take pictures, check out bands, I love thrifting and chilling with my family.
