Hello and welcome to my site. I’m an artist who has worked as a Graphic Designer, Photographer, Illustrator and more. With over 15 years experience in a fluid industry I can take your concept from sketch to final production. If you’ve a venture coming up and do not yet need my work as a designer or photographer I’m sure I can be of service as a Creative Consultant. Please feel free to browse my work and if you like contact me and let’s see what we can create.
Checking post today on Nashville Model & Photographer’s Connection which is a page I help admin on Facebook I became annoyed. The post was a FOR PROFIT Make Up & Hair Academy looking for a photographer to shoot 10 different models for TFP. TFP? 10 Models shot for TFP? 10. Are you kidding me. You are asking a photographer to drag his or her gear to your site, shoot 10 people, adjust light and all the other stuff entailed for TFP? Not to mention you’re going to want at least some basic editing and I assume a deadline is involved. All that for TFP?
Photographers, why are you answering these kind of posts. Why are you willing to work for free/tfp for an entity that is a For Profit School? It makes money! So should you! I don’t care what their reasoning is the school should if nothing else be paying the photographer $50 t0 $75 per model and even that is not even close to what the photographer should be making for such a large job. I can however tell you why For Profits are getting away with it. They’re getting away with because there are too many in the industry willing to “work” for nothing. The only way this monster will stop eating the industry is if we starve it to death.
A few weeks ago Barber Andre Southall contacted me to design a logo for a new business he was opening called Moguls Barber and Lounge. Moguls would be an exclusive club open only to members. The club would offer itself as a rental venue, offer massages, cigars, billiards and more. Below is the finished logo and a small write up in the Tennessean.com

Last night I decided to drive up to Nashville to do some shooting at the Tennessee State Fair. My goal was to do some shots using Long Exposure. This is not something I do a lot of. Lucky for me I choose a night that was slow to say the least and since I was going to be using my tripod and a remote. Choosing such a slow night was ideal for this bit of shooting for multiple reason. With fewer people running around there was less of a chance of my tripod and camera being jostled by the crowds and or knocked over.
When I think of a Midway my first thought is a Ferris Wheel dominating the skyline. While this Particular Wheel was not the biggest, it was awfully bright and I was sure I could capture it’s electric grandeur as it’s lights rand through their patterns.
Mission accomplished? Almost I decided to move a bit closer. to
I loved shooting the Wheel, it was after a bit mesmerizing. Later that night I decided that I had to ride the thing at least once. Now I wish I could say that I had some photos of my ride, but truth be told I’m not fond of heights. My hands stayed fastened to the rides furniture with a death’s grip!
Below are some additional images I shot last night. Once again it was a slow night which allowed me quite a window for me to shoot these long exposure without fear of the bustling crowds.
I hope you enjoy them and if you’d like to order a print of anything you see let me know! Contact me at email@example.com
Why photograph people? Sometimes one tries to show either physical comeliness, sometimes to convey a message. But there are those times when one comes across a person who’s face is filled with character and untold stories. Their eyes sparkle and their smile is infectious. Mr. Galaz is one such person. He’s a traveler who lives in an RV. I met Mr. Galaz over a year ago and have wanted to try and capture his spirit. I hope you enjoy the end result seen below. I gave Mr. Galaz a prints of my efforts and well he nearly burst into tears and said “No one’s ever taken such a good shot of me, ever”! He told me would be giving them to his kids and grandkids. Made my day.
Recently writer Elena Alex hired me to take some Headshots of her. I was jazzed and looked forward to shooting her. After meeting for a consultation we decided to shoot in Nashville and chose a few different locations. The gazebo in Centennial Park was our launching point followed by Printer’s Alley and finishing up on the Courthouse Green. We needed up with some great shots that are full of life and I hope showcase Elena’s dynamic personality and presence.

I came across this house the other day on a road trip to find material for another Forgotten Tennessee blog. Obviously the house was abandoned and had been for quite some time, yet the grounds around it was freshly mown. I decided a closer look was in order. As I walked across the freshly mown grounds I could see more than a few dead trees, a broken window on the second floor and what looked like green siding nailed over a lower window. Creepy, but it got creepier. Ivy.
Ivy covered EVERYTHING! The walkway leading up to the porch was a carpet of Ivey, one that spread from nearby trees. Ivy had consumed the stairs, the porch, across the porch and up the walls. Next to the front door was a sign that read Keep Out. No kidding. Not being sure what kind of ivy I was looking at decided not to risk walking through the emerald carpet for fear of the greenery might be Poison Ivy (my luck) or that there might be a hole in the porch.
I decided to walk around the structure and capture what I could of the houses character. As I walked around the left corner I could see that the ivy was busily engulfing the sides of the house as well. I stopped and took a couple of shots of the ivy choked side then walked further down and looked a breezeway and what? An exterior building of some sorts? Was this a school house? A business of some sorts?
I’d no idea and since I had no latter to look into the windows, and even then from what I could see through one window all was dark. I hope you enjoy the photos I took of this addition to Forgotten Tennessee. If you’d like to purchase a print please write me at email@example.com
