IF YOU WISH TO BE A 'FRIEND' THEN PLEASE LEAVE AT LEAST A COMMENT OR LIST BEFORE REQUESTING! .
I do not shoot much anymore except with that ocassional special model I find interesting. Too much to get caught up on so I have quit for the year unless someone really interests me in the next few weeks.
I AM NOT making a living from photography nor do I intend too. No need to now... I retired early. I have no illusions of becoming a famous photographer just one who is fun to work with. I have done a number of weddings and helped aspiring models with their portfolios. I am enjoying what I am doing and the bonus is I get to meet all kinds of interesting people. I have a limited number of l projects planned for 2014 for model shoots.
Also I travel to Victoria frequently so I am always looking for models and a make-up artist in the area. Love shooting there. I really like combining software and photos to create a photographic story.
If you want kinky, Goth, fetish, and anything kind of creepy find another photographer! I will do implied/ upper nude shots with certain models that interest me as long it is artistic and not just for the sake of it.
I really enjoy working with the models who are just starting out. It is great to see them develop over time and lose their awkwardness and, hopefully, go on to much better photographers and good paying shoots.
If you like my work you can always get in touch with me. I will still do some TF* and paid compensation depending on the shoot concept and experience of the model. I only work now with models at least 5' 5" and up. There can be exceptions...nothing is written in stone.
I have acquired an extensive size XS & S wardrobe for shoots. Also I really prefer not to shoot with those under 19. Exceptions would be if there was a particular model that I found interesting so there would have to be an escort and parents would have to sign the Model Release.
While I don't have a "Do not recommend" list, there are a number of models that I would recommend avoiding. PM me, it you'd like that info
I also like to show my models pictures of the shoot as it progresses. I find they appreciate this tremendously and learn quicker; even the experienced ones find this helpful. Sometimes the models come up with some great ideas or want to redo a pose. Then we both benefit.
I DO NOT keep track of my models if we have a shoot scheduled. It is up to the model to keep me posted of her intent to shoot. If YOU DO NOT keep in touch or answer my email I assume there is no interest in shooting!!!
I also do most of my own editing now!
