I try not to think about how other people see my photographs; it’s their business, not mine. I’m happy to trigger associations and provide a little intrigue. But sometimes I wonder what a potential subject thinks is happening AT the shoot of a given photograph. When I say, “subject,” I mean a potential client or in most cases, a non-model who is interested in posing for me.
Don’t Get the Wrong Idea
What I don’t want is for anyone considering posing for me to get the wrong idea about what happens AT my shoots to create such photographs. I don’t want someone to be apprehensive. On the flip side, I certainly don’t want anyone contacting me for an experience I don’t want to be a part of.
I create scenes that might look a little intense or dramatic, or sensual. But the work to get there, the environment, is hardly that. Everyone involved is usually very focused on a given sequence of shots. And the mood I try to maintain is light and positive and fun.
No Drama Zone
I don’t need more drama in my life. But the worlds I create in my images… that’s a different story. Fortunately, I think most people get that.
