Current Personal Project: SHE Rides - a Female Biker Portrait Series

Upcoming Exhibit: Naturally Undone

Fun Fact: All images for my first solo exhibit were shot on my Samsung Glyde camera phone

Future Career Milestone: Shooting a spread for the ESPN Body Issue

As a photographer, I hold up the mirror to my clients, helping them see themselves beautiful with my editorial portraiture - capturing the beautiful nuances and emotions of everyday life.  I'm available for private photo shoots. Clothed or nude.  I use the same voyeuristic style in my event coverage providing a "behind-the-scenes" look with an emphasis on conveying the energy of the event.


My first solo photo exhibit, Man. Toy., was held at the Body Archive Gallery in New York. All images featured in that exhibit were shot on my camera phone at the time. Within months of beginning to teach myself how to shoot manual photography on a DSLR,  I was the Grand Prize Winner of the first 40 Acres "BK Loves MJ Photo Contest" judged by Filmmaker and Producer Spike Lee. My solo pop-up exhibit of my Bare Men series was held at The Living Gallery in Bushwick, Brooklyn. 


My editorial portrait and nude photography has been presented in various exhibits and group shows.

  • Bare Men Pop-Up Exhibit, The Living Gallery, Brooklyn NY
  • Rising Waters 2.0.: More Photographs of Sandy, Museum of the City of New York, New York, NY

I appeared on Madhousetv's The Filmmakers Show to discuss my photography and my Bare Men photo series. I've also talked the talk on W Radio Colombia, the Sexpert w/ Mia Renee podcast and Sirius XM



Bare Men is my ongoing male nude photography series. Limited Edition objet d'art photography book featuring the first 17 men was published in October 2016. 

Positive body image, sensuality, sexuality and gender are promoted through my nude art photography. I believe women should take control of their portrayal as it relates to womanhood, fitness, sex, sexuality, sensuality and simply loving the skin they're in. 


Before getting behind the camera, I was an art model and worked with numerous photographers and have been featured in books and photo exhibits including Moregasm: Babeland's Guide to Mind-Blowing Sex, Portraits of Eve and The Naked and the Lens: A Guide to Nude Photography. I also shoot self-portrait photo essays.
