A gallery of my work organized by year.
Half Zombie effect achieve entirely in Lightroom.Â If there’s enough interest, I’ll post a tutorial on how I achieved this effect.
Behind the fold because nudity makes HR drones break out in hives.
Jess has always had a bit of a dark personality.Â Her preferred mode is intense and dark.Â Every now and then, though, the cuteness in her soul bubbles up and I’ve been lucky enough to catch that in camera a few times.
Digging deep into the archives this week, I came across the first session I ever shot with Jessica.Â You’ve seen some photos from this set percolate up over the years, but some of these have never seen the light of day.
This set was shot in 2007, just a couple of weeks after her 18th birthday.Â The original concept for the shoot was an extended series of poses for her to use as reference material in her artistic pursuits.Â Â Â By the time we finished the reference shots, she was having so much fun we just kept shooting.Â Â I think we shot for about 3 or 4 hours that day.
Jessica was a regular in front of my camera until she got to busy with College last year and I’ve only gotten to shoot her once since spring of 2013.Â As I revisit the archives over time, you’ll be seeing more of what were originally the ‘cast offs’ from the many, many sets over the 6+ years between this shoot and the last full session we shot in early 2013.Â And who knows, when she’s between semesters and has some free time, I may yet get her back in front of my lens to create more art.
These are sensual and classic nude poses, so I’ve put them behind the fold, as usual.Â Enjoy.
Tuesday night was a DVD release party at The Shelter in Atlanta.Â Â We intended to do a red-carpet photo op with paparazzi and everything.Â The lighting was a bit too intense for the club so we moved out into a side-room and opened the windows on down town Atlanta.
Instead of a red carpet, we have a black couch.Â Worked so much better. A hell of a lot of fun was had by everyone and I have the photos to prove it.
I grabbed a quick couple of shots of the always beautiful Evil Overqueen on the stairs this afternoon.Â Â I’m still experimenting with black & white and the difference in texturing, composition and tone as opposed to color.Â Â Â It’s a shame, really, because her skin tone is just fantastic.Â I may post the color versions later.
Break for the boob averse. Beyond here lies nudity.
Going back through my archives again.Â This time, from 2006-2008.Â You may have seen some of these before, others I know no one has seen.Â Â All of them have been taken from the raw shots and re-edited / corrected / cropped, etc.Â using the stuff I’ve learned in the six or seven years since I took the shots.Â Â Enjoy.
I’ve been going through some of my better photos from the last couple of years and revisiting my techniques for B/W conversion.Â I think this one works much better than the old technique.Â I was able to bring out the details on her jacket and give her some hair back.
I had a chance to shoot Jess up on top of Effigy hill at Alchemy this year.Â TheÂ cool breezes, warm sun and beautiful skies were just too perfect to not use as a backdrop for one of my most beautiful regular models.
Image and link to the gallery are after the cut to save on heart medication for HR departments and other prudes who explode at the sight of a boob.Â Â Enjoy.
Going back through the year’s sets looking for shots for a gallery show, I came across this set that I hadn’t gotten around to finishing and uploading.
Jess and I were experimenting with a new makeup look and something a little different with respect to wardrobe.Â Here are the best from that set.
I found myself in a creative mindset tonight and decided to experiment a bit with B&W images. I went back to a set of Jess & Swan Song from June and either did a new treatment of one of the shots I’ve already published or picked out new images from that set to play with. I think you’ll like the results.

More images past the fold.Â Beware, they’re not safe for work.
