R. Jay Crouse, Still Photography


Amateur, published photographer with a classic (and sometimes Goth) eye and sensibilities...

I've only been doing portrait & 'live' model photography for a short time.  I emphasize 'live' model for a reason, one of my hobbies is cemetery art photography...  Hence, the Goth aspects.
