  • Wild Side Photography This is my website for the photos I have developed over the years working with my models--some outdoors and some in the studio. Prints and cards from these images can be ordered from this website.
  • Revisiting the Classics  in this book I merge my photographs of live models into paintings and sculptures that have been enjoyed for centuries. Together with brief, insightful "behind the scenes" vignettes of the masters and their art, I present new images to offer fresh appreciation and interpretation for the classics. The images in the book are also available as c-prints and greeting cards.
  • DIY Book Publishing  The world of book publishing is changing rapidly. The information contained here was developed for a panel that occured at San Francisco's main branch of the public library.
