Just completed my first visit to your delightful gallery. I took my time, and soon it got to the point where I was recognizing some of your models and also some of your venues, too (I had lived in the area for some time). Of the c. 1100 or so images you've posted, I ended up with about 60 that absolutely sent me soaring, appreciating each for different reasons: lighting, or contrast, or pose, or fit between model and surround, or color, or b/w starkness.

I do have to say, though, that this portfolio is clearly a SoCal collection. I'm not sure why I feel this way, and it's by no means a concern, not at all. It's just that your camera seems very at home with San Diego environments, be they woods, desert, mountains, shoreline...or even apartment. In fact, I got into your use of topography as the main (and sometimes only) prop. Mother Nature is beautifully represented in your posing, to gorgeous effect. And the models look so...um...healthfully haughty, for the most part, as if they know they're lookin' good. ("Wish they all could be California girls....")

Among the ones I liked best are a few b/w shots that nailed me. Seems clear to me your eye is just as good for monotone as for color.

Finally, wanted to say that of all the phenomenal models you have featured in this gallery, Aurie stands out for me as an exceptionally compelling persona. She has a wonderful, alive face, is the least distant (IMHO). Sogi also left a huge impression on me, I think especially because her facial features lead one to feel a repose, a relaxation, that ends up pervading the entire image.

In any case, I promise to return. It's a truly delicious gallery.

Well… sincere thanks for such a thoughtful commentary, and also devoting the time to write it.  The work is an artistic labor of love, and it is gratifying when I get feedback that it resonates with someone out there.

Commenting on a few remarks… it is probably difficult to mask the general regional locale, it is what I have to work with.  There must be somewhere else on this earth that is as diverse in its natural environment over a relatively small distance as Southern California, but if there are other places, I'm not aware of them.  The fantastic variation in beaches, coastal foothills and forest, mountains and desert within a relatively small range are truly a gift.  If I didn't have to share this area with 15 million other people, many of whom have no sense of humor about people being 'nude in public' - well, what an even cooler thing that would be.

All of the models that I have the privilege to work with on a semi-regular basis - each of them are different, but all truly wonderful, and most naturally exhibit a sense of peace, knowing who they are (at least when they're around me).  Especially in the great outdoors, I want them to appear to be 'in the environment', in some state of harmony or peaceful enjoyment of the place they are at.

Thanks again...
