About Me

a visit to Salvador's world

This picture is of Elizabeth Mary (Mayhem #356882), one of the many wonderful models I've worked with in the past. If you are an adventerous woman who likes the work I do and would like to do a shoot please drop me a line. I'm always pleased to work with someone new and interesting. I'm primarily interested in making creative environmental nudes though I do work in the studio some of the time. I'm happy to shoot work for your portfolio (portraits or fashion) if you'll help me with mine. A friend request means I'd love to work with you so please don't be shy . . .

After university I photographed golf for TV, resulted in a lifelong aversion to anything involving small white balls. I love women and buildings, however, so I became a commercial photographer specializing in fashion and architecture.

Since those halcyon days I've taught creative photography, photojournalism and scientific photography at the University of Victoria. Except in exceptional situations I no longer take on assignments, but instead concentrate on being a fine art photographer, a euphemism for making work but never selling any.

Italy and England, the landscape from the Arctic to the tropics, graffiti, the photograph as metaphor and the "fine art" nude in the landscape are areas of ongoing work, along with my Atget re-photographic project in Paris.

To see all my work at Model Mayhem you will have to "Toggle Worksafe Mode" to off. For biographic info see my listing in Who's Who in American Art and the Macmillan Biographical Encyclopedia of Photographic Artists and Innovators. Also please have a look at my website at and my Flickr stream at For the latter you'll need to log on and have "safe" search turned off.
