He took his years of experience and started working with other models, helping them to build and develope strong portfolios.

"Beauty comes in all shapes and sizes, all colors and hues, all genders, male; female and transgendered. It is my mission to highlight these expressions of beauty with the utmost respect and to showcase them with my own unique vision. The CREATOR has blessed each of us with a unique beauty, attitude, and individual experiences that make us one of a kind. As a photographer, it is my duty to use my God given talent to utilize the two elements that were there at the start of the Universe; Light and Darkness, to create art."
