I love talking photography, wine, food and travel, so lets pour a glass of wine and talk.

I have been shooting professionally since 1974. My images range from the total fantasy images of Fairies to depictions of the beautiful women next door I feel like they have a unique sense of sensuality and style.

During the 15 years of shooting fashion my work was published in all the major fashion magazines including Elle, Cosmopolitan, and Vogue. Since the early 80s I have chosen to focus primarily on Glamour/Pinup in this realm, Mystique Magazine is where I have established and pursued my unique vision of beautiful women, creating one of the classiest magazines of beautiful women in the world. My fashion background, lighting, excellent rapport with talent, and ability to create powerful images outside of the normal expectations has truly set Mystique and my images apart.

My work has also been published in Penthouse, Playboy and in hundreds of calendars. My images have won numerous worldwide awards. I have nine table top books published.

I love to teach and share my joy of shooting beautiful images of women. I hold workshops and seminars all over the world and have produced an educational DVD series on lighting and production.

I love with Carlotta, she moves really well and know exactly how to make those curves work. Plus she has great expression always willing to emote what I'm looking for.

We have a stunning location set up, great makeup artist so this will be a great shoot.
