The Kickstarter campaign ended yesterday with some enthusiastic pledges; but not quite enough to see the book printed. Learning lots about how to market (or not) in this world of social media. So, for now, I'll set it aside as I gain additional followers. And perhaps try again early next year. 
After lots of consultation with friends, potential buyers and some devil's advocates, we've chosen a title for the book. The next major job before the Kickstarter launch will be to select the cover images. Think maybe a poll here may be helpful with that?

And the winner is "Southern Exposure: Men of Key West"

United States
I've been an avid photographer since my college days in the 60s and 70s though the interest back then was mostly architectural. Among (many)other things, I've worked as a photojournalist through which I developed an appreciation and skill for capturing "a moment" which tells a story.

My specific interest in male figurative work became serious in the early 90s when I owned a gallery in Key West called "Bodyscapes", one of the few galleries in the country at the time which would feature fine art imagery of the male form. Through the gallery I met and represented some of the finest photographers of the genre in the United States. And, subsequently, thought "if they can do it, why can't I?"

Fifteen years later, practicing my craft, I'm finally arriving at a style that's uniquely my own, gaining some recognition with several one-person shows and building a new career as a photographer. Though what goes around comes around...most of the paid work is as an architectural and interiors photographer. My passion, however, is the male figurative work. It's my intent that can become part of the new career as well.

Current Residence: Key West, FL
