I love capturing beautiful people, places, special moments, and showing them to others. Photography has been a medium that's been feeding my creative soul for a long time. It has enabled me to see amazing places,  meet so many awesome people on an intimate level, and experience many rare moments. Following my lens has led me through life changing experiences that only a select few

can enjoy.

Here you will be able to see some of the things I've seen and meet some of the beautiful people I met. Each photo posted here came from my camera, my hand, and my eye unless stated otherwise. 

My favorite subjects and themes to capture are intimate portraits of beautiful people; not just professional models but all kinds of people. I enjoy capturing candid life and dated architecture. I love capturing rare journalistic moments in time. I love capturing life happening behind closed doors and action behind the scenes.

Let's set up a session?

eBook Store

The best way to view complete sets and entire collections is through a book. I have ebooks of creative photo sessions dating all the way back to 2012. Visit my eBooks & Downloads store to check out my collections!

The #Lockdownexhibition was an Instagram-based event held on Easter 2020 Weekend. The whole project was put together by artist @sophieparkerdesign as a way to unite artists to create a platform to display their artworks in their personal creative space during the COVID-19 economic lock down. Over 100 artists took part and I must say, this was the most fun I've had in a long time on Instagram. 

Typically this app is dead, boring, filled with ads, memes, influencers, and shallow selfies. But for a weekend, my feed was filled with art! Vibrant shape and texture filled art! Check out the hashtag #lockdownexhibition on Instagram to fill your world with art!

Here is what I exhibited. These are photos of different artworks I have hanging around my studio space. All of these works are currently for sale. Some are available in my Heliovista Store and the others are available through personal message

Citrine is my favorite subject, my favorite being, my muse. Working with her is always a spiritually intimate experience for me. She and my camera lens bond in a way that very few have been able to closely match. We have tons of photos stored away are creating many more in the near and far future. Her energy is strong and vibrant. Her mind is relentless, sharp, and powerful. She is an Artist with many focuses and has a handmade jewelry brand called Citrine Tangerine.

This photo set presents a few sides of Citrine. In the series she is posing in front of one of her vibrant large paintings while wearing one of her flower crowns. Below the set is an in-depth interview with Citrine that will show you a bit about why she models and what some of her messages are. To see the full set, visit my Private Blog.

How long have you been modeling and what made you want to get into it?

I've been modeling for 3/4 years consistently. What got me into modeling was exploring ways to sell, market, and expose...

This is an awesome Russel Industrial Center set featuring Nicki Cheri, an extremely dope commercial model from Detroit, MI. This was our first time shooting together and it was a lot of fun. I really like how Nicki poses. After every shot, she moves every limb and locks into a completely new look, facial expression too. 

Featuring Syd Vicious.

Syd is d o p e. She's always down to do weird off the wall shit like fuck crucifixes or pose naked behind slices of pizza. This set isn't that off the wall, but some of the ones on my Private Blog are. 

Featuring Heaven Jones

Gangsta Rap Made Me Do It. This was a fun shoot. A lot of the shots from this set inspired me to try a new style of glitch art.

Featuring Heaven Jones.

This was our very first shoot together and boi was it d o p e. The location was the basement of a liquor store in Dearborn MI that just a couple of weeks before was the location of the first 4/20 rave I've ever thrown. Some of the graffiti was already there but the majority is fresh from the artists that attended the event. The large in the shots where Heaven is wearing Adventure Time attire was created by Quinn Buckley. Heaven absolutely nailed this shoot, and even though she said she was a bit nervous, it went undetected.
