If we respond to your casting call or contact you for a shoot, please be courteous enough and "professional" enough to respond to us; a simple yes or no will do. We promise to extend the same courtesy to you if you contact us.
OUR WORK IS IMPORTANT TO US. IT'S WHAT WE DO FOR A LIVING.
Please don't tell us how excited you are about working with us, then not respond to our follow up email or phone call....or even worse, not show up for a scheduled shoot. Our listing here on MM is all about WORKING with other professionals who are here for the same reason and nothing else......certainly NOT socializing.
So please, don't waste your time and ours if you're not serious about modeling and just here to play or make "friends"...there are other websites for that.
If you truly want to work with us, send us a message, not just a tag, and tell us the details of what you want to accomplish. We will get back to you as soon as possible to answer any questions you may have and coordinate a shoot date for you.
We do not interpret random friend requests and tags to mean you want to work with us, so drop us a line and tell us what's on your mind.
As a full time photographer, paid projects take priority;
however, we will consider special TF sessions for serious
models, make up artists and wardrobe designers who can provide something truly unique to our portfolio as well. In other words, it should be something that will help everyone involved get more paying work in the future. After all, that's why most of us are here. If we schedule a TF session with you, please have a solid vision of what you want to achieve.
Please appreciate and observe the fact that all of our work is under copyright. In other words, make your own pictures.
ABOUT THE PHOTOGRAPHER
While it may seem like a lot to read, the following is intended to give you a little perspective on who we are and to be as informative as possible.
I've lived and worked in New Orleans most of my life. My partner and wife Elaine is a native of Brazil and has lived here for twelve years. We've been married now for ELEVEN of those years and it's been great! I've never partnered with or communicated so well with anyone else, ever before.
Getting to know new clients is always a pleasure for both of us. Our goal is to achieve the results you're looking for. We encourage our clients to communicate with us; we want to hear your ideas and make your vision a reality.
Elaine and I often work as a team on our various projects; we love to help talent and clients accomplish what they have in mind regarding styles of lighting, locations and special effects.
While I have over 14 years of experience with a variety of imaging software programs, like most professional photographers, I always try to achieve the best results possible with the camera first, by using enhanced natural lighting or a particular style of studio lighting as a solid foundation.
Nevertheless, clients with special requests often call upon these software imaging skills, in some way or another, to further enhance the image according to their preferences including the incorporation of graphic design work for commercial and promotional needs.....

When you visit our website, you will find that our modeling and headshot rates are very reasonable and competitive.
Many models ask us if we can do TFCD. We would love to be able to help everyone in need but because of the time and materials investment, we are often unable to do so. To create a professional
portfolio for someone using a varied wardrobe as well as several locations or various studio setups often takes up to six hours; and that's if everything is well planned. In addition, there are many hours of post processing, building a proof gallery, touch ups, prints etc.
Consequently, if we do take time to do any TF work, it will be rather selective, usually involve only one setup and it will benefit our portfolio as well as yours.
HOWEVER, depending on your type as well as your ideas, concepts or goals for the session, we may offer one hour TF sessions to aspiring models who;
1) Carefully researched and understand the industry
2) Are very committed to their future career in modeling
3) Have a special something to offer our current portfolio
4) Have a professional attitude and unique style of pose
DON'T HESITATE TO CONTACT US BY PHONE OR EMAIL; tell us what's on your mind regarding set design, props and wardrobe; TF may be a possibility. Nevertheless, if you have a dream shoot in mind or just an interest in working with us, don't hesitate to drop us a line......you never know!
Sounds like you? Great...please contact us soon and be sure to mention you found us on Model Mayhem.
No matter what your needs are, we promise professional results.
............Wayne and Elaine Ferrara
