Shooting images of a model is very much like shooting images of a landscape — to a point. The light, the composition, the depth of field are all approached from the same place as with a landscape. But there is an added dimension. Here, the subject is also conscious, and in the best case they are also in “the Zone” and experiencing a moment of Satori!

There is always an interaction between two persons when working together. Depending on multiple factors, including the personality and presentation of the subject, there might even be somewhat of an intimate response. As an adult attempting to create art through present moment awareness, that personal and sometimes intimate energy is best channeled through creativity and the desire to find beauty and truth through the subject and photographic process. So, that initial intimate, and somewhat uncomfortable relationship is accepted and channeled to creativity. When capturing these images, creativity is the focus of intentions between individuals involved. In the best case scenario, we are there for the same reasons, and discomfort fades away and creativity becomes the focus. Our personal lives and problems are not relevant during the photo session. Only creating artistic images.

There are many reasons to want to photograph models, and many reasons for models to want to be photographed. Common intent, and the ability to synchronize that intent through present moment awareness while working is where it all comes together for me. When this happens, I leave a session energized and feeling alive, and I have a pretty good idea as to the quality of images I can expect when I develop the film Many of the models I am working with are highly educated and intelligent, and self-aware, comfortable and confident. They are looking to create and express, not to advertise and sell.

These photographs document the those creative interactions, using a variety of both traditional and modern tools. Antique lenses as well as modern cameras, both digital and film are used. My goal is to present the subject as an intimate portrait, allowing their being to shine through the images.
