In Future Issues

Much of my editorial style shooting (which is most of what I do) won't be posted on social media. One or two, then the rest published in the mag, or to another mag - which has often been the case in the past. What will be in there? The stuff I shoot of course :) Which ranges from my own style of emotive and artful portraiture shot on film with my established workflow and gear, to nude art, to sensual, erotic; to my style of edgy fashion and story-based shooting (acknowledgements for inspiration to Lindbergh and Tran).

There is a lot of work in my archives that hasn't been published over previous years and even recently. The next post will have some examples.
