Thank you for checking out my Patreon page!

Who am I?
- I'm not just a crazy genius. I'm a twenty year veteran of wedding and portrait photography who, in recent years, unexpectedly found his niche and passion in Black Light Photography and UV Body Painting. I love art! I love the beauty of the world around me and I love the beauty of the human, especially female, form. I've always been fascinated by black lights and fluorescent colors as well. I've combined these passions in what I call Black Light Bodyscapes. Through the use of fluorescent body paint I paint scenes from nature and outer space on the body and photograph them under black light.



What is Patreon you ask? - Patreon is a site where fans can support their favorite artists on an ongoing basis. If you're a fan of my work and would like to help make it possible for me to continue doing what I do best or help take what I'm currently doing to the next level, then this is your chance. For as little as $1 per month you can make a huge difference in what the future holds for me and my art. 

With your support -  I've come a long way in the last five years but with your support I could go so much further, faster. I've been blessed with UV body paint sponsors but there are still so many materials yet to try. With better lighting and camera equipment I will be able to produce higher quality images and videos. During the winter, just being able to heat the studio would go a long ways. 

For those of you who are true fans of my work, you eagerly await the posting of my latest image. Freed from the distractions of how I'm going to keep the electricity on, through your support I will be able to dedicate my time and energy to releasing new images on a regular consistent basis. I'll be able to try new materials, start incorporating props, build small sets, and actually pay my models! As the patron collective grows so will my ability to create on a larger scale and the more time I will be able to devote to Patreon and my fans.



What you can expect - Patreon is a new adventure for me, as well as for most of you. I therefore need to take "baby steps" while I get it figured out. I plan to do this by under promising and hopefully over delivering. My goal is to release every month, 2-4 new body painting images, at least one of which will be exclusive to Patreon, and one "behind the scenes" video. Patrons will have the advantage of seeing my latest work one week in advance of it being released to other sites and the exclusive images will only be found on Patreon.

Not everything I do is a scene painted on the body but most of it does involve the use of Black Lights and the female figure. I'll post a variety of side projects each month and refer to the "suggestions box" to get a feel for what patrons want to see most.



For patrons that want to be more than just a supporter I've created some upper level "Collector" tiers. These levels will include physical limited edition greeting cards, prints and books only found on Patreon.

As milestone goals are reached, every patron at any level will receive a bonus photo greeting card thank you!

In the future I will also start to include Black Light Photography and UV Body Painting "How To" videos. This will most likely start as soon as I can afford to hire an official cameraman to follow me around.

The bottom line - It's not easy asking for help. I love what I'm doing and will do as much as I can afford to do. If you're a fan of my work and are in a position to help a little or a lot it will be greatly appreciated. Even if it's as little as $1 per month, with strength in numbers it can make a huge difference! Thank you so much! I look forward to sharing my latest creations with you!
