Hors d'oeuvers and Holiday cheer!

Jeff is very excited to announce the solo exhibition of his latest work at Risk Press Gallery in West Hollywood.

"What’s my vision? I find that my work has been influenced by the work of many photographers. The three most influential being Herb Ritts, Tom Bianchi and Jeff Palmer. The genius of their work is a source of continual inspiration to me.

"In my photography I attempt to use just enough light to capture the beauty of a model’s form, and just enough shadow to leave some mystery. I don’t succeed with every shot, but I sure enjoy trying.

"Working with nude models can be both challenging and rewarding. For some, shedding one’s clothing for the camera is a proposition fraught with inner conflict. For others, it is a thoroughly liberating and even arousing experience. I take a very relaxed approach to my shoots and try to make my models feel as comfortable and confident as possible. I have had some my best results from first time models who are as excited about making beautiful photos as I am. It is very rewarding to me to be able to capture a beautiful shot of someone and see their elated reaction to the print."
