I have been asked by several people to do a photograph session for payment. I no longer do photography except when it interests me. I no longer do photography for payment.

However, I am open to ideas that broaden my experience and knowledge.

If you want to collaborate or have an idea that might interest both of us, please email me, describing what you have in mind. The result need not be posted on this website.

Here are a few photo projects that I have done in recent times:

I was asked to document a woman's body. She wanted photos of everything from her hands to her feet in detail. She had done this every ten years since her 30th birthday. This year she turned sixty. This was a fascinating experience. We made an album documenting how her body had changed over the years.

There have been several "boudoir" sessions. A boudoir photo is an intentionally erotic picture taken, usually, in the woman's own boudoir or bedroom or other location. The woman poses in suggestive clothing, lingerie, nightgown, or sometimes nothing. The purpose in each of these shoots was to have a gift for the person's husband or boyfriend. There are good photographers who do this for a living and I would usually refer, but it is a challenge to learn to do this better so occasionally I might do it.

One project was a "day in the life" of a man who was stricken with a terminal illness. His wife and he asked that I create a memory for her after his death. Even though this sounded a bit morbid when I first heard it, in fact it was a wonderful experience and a joyful one. He did die and about three-four months later, his widow called me and asked how she could repay me. I convinced her to make a major contribution, in his name, to an organization for research into his disease.

The biggest stretch for me was a couple who asked me to do a "porno" session of them making love. We had to discuss this at length and even then I had some trouble pushing my envelope. But this was totally private and something they wanted only for themselves. It was a challenge because it was way beyond "tame" eroticism. At the end, I felt honored by the trust they gave to me. They called me some months later to tell me how much pleasure they get from looking at the photos occasionally as a prelude to their love-making.
