I hope through Model Mayhem to meet some models, male, female and couples who are looking to expand their portfolios and willing to shoot TFCD.

A drive into yesteryear is best taken on back roads, so skip Interstate 55 and spend an extra half-hour cruising Illinois 111 south to Alton, a great bet for a day trip 90 miles south of Springfield.

Six years ago I decided to start a "location" photography business.

I still do location work and have some nice areas near the home studio for outdoor photography. I have done some prom work, sports and event photography.

At once historic and modern, Alton is a Mississippi River town both swift as the mighty river’s current and laid-back as a day checking trotlines.

It has a touch of the capital city on either end, with the modernistic Clark Bridge to Missouri on the southern part of town being designed by Hanson Engineering of Springfield and the Argosy Casino on the northern part started by William Cellini, a Springfield political powerbroker who landed the state’s first casino license in 1990.I have done pets and been 2nd shooter at weddings, some glamour shots and some family portraits.I have also worked with models here on mm and have done some studio work with them and some pinup shoots. Have also done concert photography for local bands as well as national acts.“The one is the common right of humanity and the other the divine right of kings.”Statues of the participants mark the downtown spot where the debate captured the nation’s attention on the eve of the Civil War.Am adding wedding photography as primary shooter starting 2015.About 5 years ago I received my Press Card from the local newspaper and have done some paid freelance work for them.
