About Photographer:

Since 1997 I have been developing my style of fashion, beauty & glamour photography. It is a journey that I am enjoying just as much as I am anticipating the destination. In spite of the seeming inexorable trend towards digital, I continue to shoot on film and have even begun discovering the joys of Polaroid! Fashion & beauty photography is my continuing crusade and education. If you are interested in working with me or collaborating with me, please do not hesitate to contact me. I look forward to hearing from you! "What is ruining the perception and/or expectation of beauty and attractiveness are all these overly-Photoshopped images that erase all trace of individuality from a person - resulting in a faceless, vacuous, uniformity. People are beautiful because of their imperfections, not in spite of them! A person's individuality and life history is written on their physical being via marks and scars and removing every little physical quirk on a person's skin robs them of that."
