I recently came across this image as part of a set I did in 2008 for model Ace in Manila. This is one of my favorites from that set.

Calendar Girl

We adopted our cat Tallulah last January from the Stray Animal Adoption Program (SAAP) which locates homes for cats and dogs through local Petsmart locations in the Cincinnati area. Their 2013 fund raising calendar is available now (Tallulah is featured as one of the pets of the month of May. We don't think it has gone to her head - yet.) Get your copy and help a very good cause. Email:

New Work with Simmi

Model: Simmi Makeup: Simmi Wardrobe: Tulio Location: Covington, KY Date: November 2012 Simmi is one of my favorite models. Working with him is not merely fun, inevitably we end up laughing hysterically at some point during the shoot. Simmi also brings a lot of energy and ideas, knowing what potential poses will work well in any given area. He even claims to have ideas as to how he'd like to turn the tables and photograph me! We'll see about that....

Model Mention

We all like to receive thanks, right? Of course we do. But how does one know when that thanks is sincere or just being polite? Thanks that is said again several years after and comes without the trappings of any social setting or expectation. I was alerted to thanks being paid to me through my being mentioned in a blog feature of one of the models I had worked with back in 2010, Brandon Schinaman. For all of you who enjoy seeing good looking men in nothing but their underwear, Brandon says you have me to thank for him being sought out as an underwear model after our shoot one chilly autumn day two years ago.
Check out the interview here. Thanks for the great photographer mention, Brandon!

New Work with Model Jessie Lee

Hey all, My life this summer has been one crazy roller coaster ride. That's why I have not been posting any new work. Here's something I worked on last week while I was in New York - a second photo shoot with the wonderful Jessie Lee. More to follow.

Work with Model Julian

Julian came down to Cincinnati from Cleveland a couple weeks ago to work with me. He's a great guy who not only has an innate sense for a good pose, but also takes direction well. Here's a few images from our shoot. After the shoot, as we were poring through the images, we both agreed we hoped this won't be our last shoot together.

Photo Shoot with Jesse

This was my first shoot with Jesse. He's a very creative guy who poses well with little guidance. He's fun to work with and enhances a shoot with his own creativity and enthusiasm.

First Post for the New Year

Happy New Year everyone! Just before the holidays I had the great opportunity to meet and photograph the wonderful and game individual you see in the image below. I hope to be doing some more creative work with him and many others in 2012. Stay tuned and have a peaceful, healthy and prosperous new year!
