From the time I could hold a pencil, I knew I was going to be an illustrator. Comic book artist, to be exact. I was required to take Basic Photography in college, and met Jim Gavenus. A documentary photographer who’s work completely changed my path.

I became good friends with Jim, and mentored under him for years. As a documentary photography, I never saw Jim use a light kit, reflector or even a flash. As such, I adopted the same style.. I eventually fell in to portraiture, which evolved in to dark, hauntingly cinematic style of pinup photography.

Presently, I’ve been photographing for fifteen years. Ten years professionally, and five years full time. I travel extensively. I’ve worked for companies such as Playboy, Suicide Girls, Drai’s Night Club in Las Vegas and currently, I shoot for Pinup Girl Clothing. To book a private session in one of the cities I regularly travel, please drop me a note at lars@madeineighty.com
