WARNING to users of free email accounts, i.e. Yahoo, Hotmail, etc.

Before sending the form, make sure you have enough storage space in your email account. Several models who've contacted me through this page using freebie accounts hadn't cleaned out those accounts of saved messages and inbox junk, so my mail to them bounced--repeatedly. You may also contact me by snail mail:

ABOUT LOCAL COLOR: In artistic terms, local color is defined as "the true color of an object in ordinary daylight." With this series of images I am attempting to portray character, beauty, and strength with the female form, placed within a natural environment and context. The models are relaxed and confident, sure of themselves and their ability to be sensual without becoming objectified. They know who they are, and they want to show the world--the viewer--that they are comfortable just being themselves, without pretense.

If you would consider being a part of this project, please fill out the following information and press the "Submit" button when finished. You will receive an automated response which should answer any questions you might have about almost anything, and I'll try to get back in touch with you within 24 hours. Please make sure you double check all your responses, especially the field containing your email address.

Also, please be advised that I am in South Mississippi, and you must be willing to travel to me. I have a private, eight-acre location I use for my work, along with a small studio.
