About the Book
Capturing Beauty is a culmination of numerous projects spanning 19 years of nude art photography. The images are juxtaposed upon the pages in a curious relationship between darkness and light, studio and location, private moments and public adventures, strength and vulnerability.
From the streets of San Francisco to the alleys of the French Quarter in New Orleans, all of the images within celebrate the female form. The first pages of this book are just the tip of the iceberg with each turn revealing another story, another amazing location and another beautiful woman. Come take this journey with me, through my lens you will see beauty as I captured it.

For 19 years I have worked to perfect my craft and every day I learn something new. I want the viewer to have a visceral reaction to my work whether it is laughter, anger, inspiration, wonder, sadness, amazement, or a simple grin. I want them to see the story and write it for themselves as they view my work. I am a photographer because I love it. This is my passion, my access to the eternal. The collaboration and connection with my model and her connection to the environment is essential to creating my work. I strive to create images that have a story and celebrate the female form.
