In this photo I was trying to balance the light so that the 19th century industrial smoke stack could be seen out the window. I keep forgetting that it is there.

Photo from a rare couples shoot.

I did this shot in an old Hollywood film noir style for another portfolio. I want to keep that portfolio PG-13, so I think it belongs here even if it is a bit mild for this portfolio.
I shoot with a model I've shot with before. She has had some success at the gym and wanted to show off the results.
A photo from a private shoot where the model was looking for a classic soft lighting image.

Hey! I got a new coffee cup!

The blue toning of this image is meant to simulate late evening light. The photo was actually taken in the middle of the afternoon as evidenced by the clock. I have to remember to either change the hands on the clock or take it out the the photos.

A natural light location shoot at a hotel suite with a large tub. Water and soap suds add an interesting texture.

A couple of photos from a private shoot. It's not usual for someone booking a private shoot to allow their photos posted.

This photo is from a shoot with a professional dancer. Dancers tend to be easy to pose - you set up the frame and just let them do what they do.

Digging in the archives again. When I took this photo of Amy Ried, I thought the shadows and shapes were interesting. Then I thought it looked too busy. Now I'm not sure.
Semi candid photo of the model applying body oil. A light covering of body oil helps enhance contrast especially in low light situations.

A session with a first time model. She had a very good sense of posing and filling the frame in the photo. Posing nude is not as hard as most people imagine it to be before they try it.
Another attempt to create a 1950s style, early morning breakfast scene. I think it worked pretty well, although I wish I had thought to change the hands on the clock.
