Sexy with tattoos.

 Sexy with tattoos.

I’ve been telling myself that ” I’m going to show some love to the sexy tattooed women out there” but over time I strayed away from the idea. Lately I’ve been seeing a lot of art on various people that I want to capture.

The image above is is more about being sexy in natural light in a natural setting, and I want to incorporate something like this with the beautiful artwork on someone’s body.

It doesn’t matter about body size, it’s about the art, the beauty of seeing, the beauty of understanding that you can be sexy with tattoos!

photos coming soon…….

Art or Porn?

There is a fine line between art and porn. The human body can be viewed as something natural as well as a object of desire. Now I’m an ass man myself but being a photographer I have learned to love all aspects of the female body. Take this breast for instance, its lit in a manner where it doesn’t become an image to lust after but gives you a sense of sensuality and natural form.

I am asked a lot about capturing shots like this, but people are reluctant to get this type of photography taken of themselves because of the way someone might interpret it. Nude art is about form, shadows and other various things that creates a story for the viewer without being seen as just “sex”. I know your thinking how can this guy be serious when his post is displaying a “TIT” Well I say to those who see it only as a “BOOB” take an artistic approach to my post and think outside the box.

Art or Porn, you decide……… But I say its natural, beautiful and definitely something that needs to be shown without prejudice.

Peace and Love.


The Makeover.

The Art of makeup is an amazing thing to me. I work with a makeup Artist her website is pamperedprincesschicago.com I was just watching her do her thing this past week trying to understand the craft of the “beauty makeover” . Somethings aren’t meant for us men and I think makeup is something that goes back to little girls with crayons and barbies…..lol.

What we see and what the camera captures is a night and day type of thing. Ever put on makeup and take a picture and was like…. “what happened to my lipstick or eyeshadow”? Well the the camera is what happened. Professional photography and makeup services gives you insight, recommendations and information that will help you get the desired look that your looking for.

The photo above is a perfect example of professional makeup application and photography combined to create an image designed to display the beauty of the model’s facial features. A different perspective was taken so that the viewers eyes can travel across her face but be drawn in to the eyeshadow.

Just a quick post about Professional services. Remember you get what you pay for and if you want a professional portfolio, at some point your going to have to invest in professional services.

Peace and Love


Motherhood.

Peace and love.


The female form.

What’s up everyone.
Today I have been thinking ALOT about one of the greatest gifts ever giving to man……. THE WOMAN! I have the pleasure of shooting all types of women from short to tall, petite to voluptuous and from all walks of life. Now being a man I would like to think that I know what appeals to the viewers of the women that I photograph, but there are different flavors for everyone.

Shelly (who is our model above) Has a smile to die for and other ASSetts, but as you can see she has a intimate and very sensual side to her as well. The total shoot wasn’t shot as artistic as this because it was more for a starter portfolio, but we did an outside location at a mansion near my home and some indoor backdrop shots as well. I was looking to highlight the form of the breast and contour their shape to draw the viewers attention to the upper body, but seeing that I love the lower body my light fell lower than I wanted and this shot was born.

Its always a pleasure to shoot with someone who is comfortable with the camera and thats pretty good with directions as well. In all, Shots like this are some of my favorites and this one I wanted to show to you. Hope you like it.

Peace and Love.


Cook County Hospital, My life began here.

Living in Chicago is a very good thing for those of us that love it here. Some may dispute that New York or Los Angeles is better but when you Bleed hot dogs with no ketchup, Italian beef dipped with hot peppers, and Chicago style pizza who can top that? The fact that were broke bothers me because everything here is being sold to the highest bidder. I took a picture of Cook County Hospital not only because the architecture is AMAZING but also my life began there. This is one of those must have things to put in the photo album just because……….
