Folsom St. Fair

I love my city! - every year at this time thousands of tourists get off their planes at SFO with suitcases full of leather, jock straps, plushy outfits, doggy masks and push up bra's to take part in the biggest outdoor leather/fetish fair in the world.  They mingle with all of the other tourists; unsuspecting families from the mid-west, business people and foreigners who undoubtedly know of San Francisco's reputation but have no idea that this past weekend was the high-holy-day of fetish.  SO, they get on the buses and subways to go sight seeing and they are surrounded by wonderful freaks of all kinds. It makes me laugh and feel bad for them at the same time; they clutch their children or shield their eyes - "Mommy, I can see that man's butt!" 

I don't normally bring my camera (I prefer to participate) but I thought I'd go out later in the day to capture some the 'tamer' side of the fair...

Steve's softer side

Steve is my friend and one of the most energetic/frenetic guys I know. This bouncing ball of energy who's nick-name is 'tigger'.
We did this shoot in his apartment a few years ago and found creative ways of capturing his quiet side. We got some great shots that day!  I'll be posting more shots of Steve in the coming weeks.

Smart is so Sexy

My friend "C" came to me with this idea and we collaborated a few years back to create these images for his blog and web site.  He's a various reader, incredibly smart and fearless.  I think smart is very sexy...

Kai Ford

Kai is such a sweet and very stylish guy, no one pulls off a fur coat like this boy! :)
I saw him dancing in a club and the first thing you notice from afar is that amazing tattoo.  These photos were taken before work was finished on his leg -It was still kind of raw.

Not your average dentist...

P.R. is one of my very best friends and dentist in New York City. There isn't a sweeter or sexier guy in NYC than him...and if my dentist looked like him I'd be there every week. :)

Jon Boy - The early years


I think I have more film and digital images of this man spanning more years than anyone.  Jon is my first muse and likes to be called "my favorite whore".  He has been many things to me over the years; My inspiration, my support, my lover and my friend. He is willing to do anything to get a good shot or just to help me grow as an artist. These were some of the first shots we did.  More images of Jon in the weeks to come!

From the Archives

I came across a shoot I did years ago and discovered a raw style (mostly out of necessity) that I would very much like to revisit on my next project.  I'm going to withhold the name of this model but he loved being in front of the camera.
