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.

Maui anyone? I now have a reason to go to Maui from Feb 27 to about March 6. 

I have time to do some shooting, teaching etc.

Anyone want to come hang in Maui? I can set up a killer workshop, one, two or three days! 

Do you all have lines that would benefit from being shoot in a rain forest or killer beach, we can make that happen!

I'm serious, contact me ASAP if you have interest.

The model in this image is Diana Kaufman shot in Hawaii!

It was a place in the 20's near the top of Topanga Canyon that gentlemen would go to relax, hunt and have a bit of company.

I hang my head to say I fell in love there, it could never be for one of my station but lord for a time I was willing to give it all up for just one more chance to smell her hair, taste her skin...

The models: Betcee and Laurie

The location is the Mountain Mermaid one of my favorite locations in the LA area.

The model is Miko Sinz.
