Back to Starved Rock

Tuesday, May 23rd, 2017

These are some photos of a lovely model, Areia, who I’ve worked with a few times. She and I spent a day wandering around Starved Rock State Park near Chicago. Starved Rock is one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever seen. Add a beautiful, talented model and some nice photos are bound to be […]

Dirty Show

Thursday, February 12th, 2015

Sorry I’ve been neglecting the blog a bit lately. Life is busy and I’m still recovering from my stay in the hospital last month. But, I’m posting almost every day over on Ello. So you should go over there if you want to see more frequent photos. Meanwhile, it’s time again for the Dirty Show. […]

It’s Calendar Time Again

Saturday, October 4th, 2014

I’ve published some calendars again for 2015. These calendars are a great way to get copies of some of my best photos at a very low price. And they are nice to have hanging on the wall all year long. Above is a calendar entirely of my favorite model, Brooke Lynne. And this second one […]

Claudine At Starved Rock

Wednesday, October 1st, 2014

Sadly this will be my last post from this amazing shoot at Starved Rock. I got to work a lot with the wonderful, fun Claudine on our last day of shooting there.  She is always a blast to work with and is a very accomplished model. Claudine is pretty much up for whatever it takes […]

A Second Day at Starved Rock

Monday, September 15th, 2014

After our day of shooting with five models at Starved Rock several of the models had to leave to go home. But Kelsey Dylan and Claudine were able to stay for a second day of shooting. So Dave Swanson and I headed back into the canyons at dawn for a second day of shooting with […]

The End of a Great Day

Wednesday, September 3rd, 2014

I can’t remember a day of shooting that was more fun or more productive than the day when these photos and the ones on the earlier posts from this day were taken. It was an amazing day of shooting with a crew of great models. Kelsey wasn’t the only one to brave the waters to […]

A Walk In The Park

Monday, September 1st, 2014

Actually I should say, A Wade In The Park. That’s what we had to do to get to this great spot. It was a lot of effort, but it was worth it. I’m so lucky to work with such great models, like Kelsey Dylan, who are willing to go to the lengths needed to get […]

Oh That Light

Saturday, August 23rd, 2014

Ayn is the star of today’s post from Starved Rock. The light at this particular time and place in one of the canyons was just breathtaking. But it required some brave model to get into a difficult spot and be beautiful for the composition to work. Ayn volunteered for this difficult and dangerous assignment and, […]

Shadows and Reflections

Thursday, August 21st, 2014

Some more from the amazing shoot at Starved Rock. This time with models Ayn, Claudine and one who shall remain nameless. The many little caves and openings in the rock, combined with many little pools of water…and some large pools as well…that you find on a good day when there has been some recent rain, […]

The Wilds Of Illinois

Tuesday, August 19th, 2014

After the closing of my show at Gallery Provocateur in Chicago I had the immense good fortune to be able to go to Starved Rock State Park, not that far out of the city, to work with a  bunch of wonderful models. Several of my favorite models, Ayn, Claudine and Kelsey, made the trip. There […]
