Original black and white photography cleared for film and TV use

Attention TV and film set decorators and designers: original black and white photographs cleared for licensing

My photographs have appeared in one major Hollywood film, several major television shows, and countless TV advertisements. For seven years I worked with a terrific LA-based art gallery/agent who connected my work with the film and TV industry for use as set decor. Sadly, the gallery recently closed and I lost my agent.

However, my work is still available for licensing direct to set designers.

Even though I'm in Nashville, I can pack and ship to your location, anywhere in the continental US (and other locations by special arrangement). Below are my terms, but I am flexible and willing to accommodate special requests.

I specialize in fine art black and white photographs of landscapes, cityscapes, and abstractions from nature. Browse my portfolios to get a better feel for my work.
