A Coffee Table Book - Photo Portraits of Actors, Musicians, Artists and Models - in a Bathtub .

About this project

I have a lot of interesting FRIENDS in the Film, Television, Music and Fashion Industries. Between Directing TV episodes I found myself taking their photos for magazine & CD covers and editorials... it was all cool, but one day I was struck with an idea... Why not use this down time to Shoot something far cooler? 

For the past two years I have been asking my Actor, Musician, Model and Artist Friends to strip down and jump "IN THE TUB" to take their pictures and in turn many told their FRIENDS to strip jump in. Over 150 people have taken the plunge in all.

So far my wife and I have financed the entire project out of our own pockets. Every participant has posed for their photo shoot for free. I now have a great publishing partner for the project 'Design Studio Press' and through them the book will be printed at a high quality have worldwIde distribution. 

This Kickstarter Project will help me finance all of the production costs... so you can have the book on your Coffee Table later this Spring.

I was behind the camera so believe me I know - there are lot of intriguing images to look at... everyone threw their caution to the wind 'A-games only' for this project...

Now, It's time for you to jump "IN THE TUB"...

Here are some of the people I photographed for the book in no particular order... Stacey Dash, Kelly Hu, Liam McIntyre, Tiffany Hines, Larry Hagman, Carly Craig, Diva Zappa, Jodi Lyn O’Keefe, Victoria Pratt, Juliette Beavan, David James Elliot, Renee O’Conner, Scottie Thompson, Matt Goss, Rachele Royale, Alessandra Torresani, Elyse Levesque, Katrina Law, Viva Bianca, Steven DeKnight, Liz Primo, Andrea Osvart, Cynthia Addai-Robinson, Chris Vance, Carrie Keagan, Jason Hassell, Jessica Parker Kennedy, Nick Tarabay, Stephanie MacIntosh, Barry Dufield, Blessing Mokgohloa, Ayse Tezel, Rosa Blasi, Robbie Jones, Beatrice Brigitte, Cela Scott, Camille Martins, Adrienne Wilkinson, Andrea Drepaul, Agatka, Ellen Hollman, Tara Yellan, Kandyse McLure, Dan Feurriegel, Miriam McDonald, Krista Madison, Luna Riomonia, Simon Merrells, Pana Hema-Taylor, Jenna Lind, Christian Antidormi, Bella Gonzalez, Gina Holden, Steven Dunlevy, Mariel Noir, Patricia McKenzie, Sara Fabel, Gwendoline Taylor, Malice McMunn, Charlotte Sullivan, Cassandra Church, Crystal Jewell, Jessica Melland, Chanita Russo, Brandy Ledford, Jesse Jane, Christopher Shyer, Christine Lakin, Gretchen Kamrath, Codi Babcock, Jen Baxter, Mike Beaver, Tarah Consoli, KD Aubert, Gina Holden, Lisa Marie Schneider, India Oxenberg, Cat Hedlund, Amanda Rice, Bekka Gunther, Priscilla Nemger, Tenley Molzahn, Jordan Madley, Elena Bokun, Brittney Powell, Courtney Graham, Tiffany Lonsdale, Monique Ganderton, Sean Beavan, Trisha Lurie, Falling Still (Band), Vera Mesmer (Band), Eli James, Christopher Mesmer, Nadja Mesmer, Michelle Yvette, Jessica Phillips, Erica Tackas, Liz Elvy, Jason Charles Miller, Jen Liu, Holly Hannula, Nadine Casanova, Kassandra Clementi, Tiffany Lonsdale, Pinky Turzo, Karishma Ahluwalia, Lesley-Ann Brandt, Sophie Kipner, Tara Mackey, Steven Lake, Madeleine Lindley, Lisa Marie Schnieder, Kate Freund, Vanessa Cater, George Puckhaber, Dani Hendry, Emily Balay, Carle Peterson, Marita Gomsrud, Eric Podnar, Brett Hamilton, Jeremy Cull, Lisa Jupiter, Michael Giovanni, Celeste Antoine, Jennifer Krukowski, Kortni Davis, Kyle Pryor, Rosa Blasi, David Crocco, Automatik Eden, Laurie Fortier, Lauren Shaw...

Risks and challenges

The Biggest Challenge to finishing the Project and featuring the photos in a beautiful coffee table book that will be sold around the world is finding help with the publishing. I am Directing TV series in Canada and South Africa in the next few months and partnering with Design Studio Press to do the publishing insures the production success of this project. I have put thousands of hours into this Project, so I will get it done.
