I was born in Raleigh, NC and raised Southern Baptist.
Today, I live in "the city of churches," Brooklyn, but I don't attend one.
I shoot photographs instead.
I shoot portraiture, fashion, myself and naked girls.
Once upon a time, I went to school and studied film, both still and motion picture.
I worked on the camera crew on a Guns 'n' Roses video once. Seriously.
I was recently published in Taschen's "The New Erotic Photography," which is a goofy title.
My first monograph, "Some of This is True," has been published by Luxxus Press this year. I think it's a fantastic title and I didn't think of that one either.
Regarding my work, people ask me about what's "erotic" and why "erotica" and naked girls and stuff.
I don't know the answer to that.
I think of my work as a single frame from a non-existent film with an embedded soundtrack.
2011 is going to be better than 2010.
I can already tell...
