I am anxious to hear from fabulous, published photographers with great portfolios artistic genres with sensitivity and originality.
I look forward to hearing from you about specific projects, be they commercial or creative in their nature. Whether you are looking for that perfect female form, an evocative editorial subject, or a smoldering, sensuous portrayal, I know I can produce exactly the result you are looking for.
I am dependable and professional, though I believe a photo shoot set should be as low-stress as possible so I like to keep the environment as light and enjoyable for all concerned as possible. I can do my own make-up and hair, and I love the collaborative process. I take direction very well, and I am more than willing to participate in the creative process if asked to do so.

Back in time to look like Polaroid?

I was recently hired to shoot the fall 2011 look book for premium denim company Frankie B. 
Daniella Clarke, designer/owner mentioned the words "polaroid look" to me, so this is what I 
Came up with. Square format. Natural light. Sometimes muted sometimes saturated, strange, uncontrolled colors.  Definitely a fun shoot! The actual look book is about 14 images. The model is Samantha from Photogenics.

Cross Process C-41 Film through E-6 Chemistry

A number of years ago there was a creative rage for "Cross Processing" film.
Cross processing could be defined as a technique where you expose negative film and develop it in chemistry that is meant to process transparency film - or vice versa.  I played around with this technique quite a bit and my all time favorite recipe was to shoot Kodak VHC negative film and process it in E-6 chemistry.

I would typically shoot type 669 polaroid to get a 100 ISO exposure and then open up or "overexpose" by one stop.  I would then run a "snip test" at +2 stops.

As far as light sources go, In the case below I used a mix of natural light and tungsten to get the deep blue colors along with the softer, warmer skin tones.  The photo below is of the beautiful Kimberly Bachofer
