A gallery of my work organized by year.
I spent some time last night doing light and posing experiments with my lovely wife, Wendi. Generally I do not get anything usable out of such a session since I’m focused on what works, doesn’t work, and on experiments. I deliberately push things to extremes in order to study the *why* as much as the *what* of how the pose or light acts and looks.
Then there are times when with a little post work, I come up with something truly extraordinary. The last time was the image “Stark Elegance” (nsfw) where it was a particular pose and expression that was the inspiration for an image. This time, it’s just the way the light fell, the softness of the detail on her hair, her expression. It’s probably one of the most elegant portraits of Wendi I’ve taken yet.

Wendi, Jess and I had the pleasure to spend three days in Nashville shooting with Oleg Volk. As normal, with Oleg, the resulting images are already making the rounds of the 2nd Amendment and firearms blogs.
You can find Oleg’s blog at OlegVolk.Net/Blog. I have included a few of my favorite shots of us but by no means are my editorial skills up to his. One of my favorite posters he’s come up with so far is this one:
I did get to spend some time behind the camera and have a few very wonderful shots of Jessica, a few of Wendi and Oleg discussing setups for the shots in the woods, and even one of the mad Russian himself.
And since none of you come here for my oh so witty prose, here are some photos. Enjoy. (warning! there be nudity beyond here..)
