Musician Promos for Ben Morgan

Here are some tasty new promo photos for singer-songwriter Ben Morgan. Ben’s recently signed to a new label and they brought me in to update his look for a fresh publicity push.

Paige Alyssa for St. Louis Magazine

Here are some unpublished shots from a recent shoot with the crazy talented Paige Alyssa for a feature in the May 2016 issue of St. Louis Magazine.

Fresh Head Shots, New Band Photos

It’s been a busy few weeks at the studio, which was a great way to wrap things up in the old space. I moved out this weekend with my sights set on a new studio. It will be a few weeks before it’s ready for prime time, so it’s all tax returns and paperwork right [Continue Reading…]

Maybe I'm Projecting Here... (A bit NSFW)

My ever intrepid muse and pal Briann stopped by last week to do some fun images with a new projector setup I’ve recently installed. For some reason whenever we do the clothing optional shoots it’s absolutely freezing in the studio, but she was a total badass as usual. The new space is gonna have superior [Continue Reading…]

2015 Wrap Up / Road Trip / All Of The Faces in the Press

A year ago yesterday, I posted a message on Facebook inviting friends to the studio for some improvised portraits.  The intent was to stave off the post-holiday blues by experimenting with some photo ideas, but the ensuing handful of sessions inspired what is easily my most ambitious project ever.

Wood Nymphs, Pond Dwellers, Family Portraits

My friend Kelly is one of my best clients and most-photographed subjects.  We are always concocting ideas for shoots and trying to outdo ourselves.  Past experiments involve a bikini made from real bacon, a pinup shoot in the snow, and a whole lot of fluorescent paint.  Every photographer should have such a great pal and [Continue Reading…]

A New Project:  All Of The Faces

I have decided to photograph all of my Facebook friends. There it is. That’s the project. Seems pretty straightforward. It is, and it isn’t.

Playtime In The New Studio (Mildly NSFW)

I spent the bulk of November cleaning out an old motorcycle repair shop and converting it into a photography studio. It is now 1250 square feet of shooting space equipped with such cutting edge amenities as an old dorm fridge and a coffee maker. A truckload of IKEA furniture makes it a little more comfy [Continue Reading…]
