Missoula Montana, August, 2011
I am an invited Artist and will be showing two images at the 2015 Seattle Erotic Art Festival this year. Both of these pieces have very interesting stories behind them.
Saturday the 25th at 1 pm I will be giving a guided art tour, the theme of which is “Making Art in Public”. I will talk about what went into making the two pieces I have on display. My personal experiences on what you can and cannot get away with in public. The ramifications of what can happen by taking your art public.
I am looking forward to getting re-involved with the Seattle Erotic Art Festival
I am going through a period of self exploration to figure out who I am and what I want to do.
I have just gotten tired of people stealing my work, people disparaging me, the rumours, the innuendos. Although I find it hilarious when people namedrop my name to me.
The whole photography thing is becoming bothersome. People tell me they love my work, yet not very many purchase my work. They just steal my work and a lot try to pass it off as their own. When I started taking pictures way back when models would actually show up when they said they would. Now, I am lucky to get a 30% show rate. Unlike most so called photographers, I provide all of the clothes, props, locations, equipment, and I am outfitted with camera gear that is quite a bit better and a lot more expensive than a fucking I-phone. It costs real money for me to do a photo shoot.
While digital photography has made photography more accessible to the masses, the term “Photographer” has almost become a dirty word. So many people call themselves photographers today. It seems every guy with a cell phone is a photographer. I have become ashamed to be called a photographer. The other half of the people seem to think they are models that should get paid, even though they have not done anything noteworthy.
I do not pay models. If anyone is getting paid, it is me. for a model to get a paid shoot with me there has to be someone interested in buying the content, whether it be for commercial use, someone’s web content, or custom shoots/videos with usually very specific content. Hardly anyone will buy pictures of pretty girls in latex or bondage or naked. There is so much of that type of content out there for free. And I really do not need it for “My Portfolio”.
People hacking into my website, I am not sure why they want to. there is not much here. I removed most of the “Good Stuff” a while ago. I wish the little fuckers would just leave it alone.
I currently maintain 50 websites for people. A lot of these people I never seem to hear from anymore. none of these people are helping me pay for my hosting etc. which when all added up is over a thousand dollars a year between the base hosting and paying for the domain names.
If I am hosting your website, and I have not heard from you in a while, and I do not hear from you by the end of March I shall cancel the website.
