TF vs. Paid vs. Negotiatable:
People have many different terms for these types of sessions. Here are mine:
TF Session - You will receive both retouched web ready and hi resolution image files with personal usage release (not for sale usage).
Paid Session - If I agree with your rates, you will be paid these rates and will receive no final image files.
Negotiatable Session - If I agree with you start rates, then you can choose to be paid 50% of your normal rate and recieve web ready retouched image files. Or you can choose to be paid 25% of your normal rate and receive web ready retouched images and two(2) retouched hi-res image files with personal usage release (not for sale).
Why Do I Do This:
“Photography is my passion.” - Alfred Steiglitz - This pretty much sums it up.
Rules About Using This As a Dating Site:
Please feel free to hit on me or be flirtacious with me.
I will still say no. However, the warm and fuzzy flattered feeling it will cause will make me more inclined to set up some TF time.
Professional or Advanced Hobbiest?
I am a professional photographer. That said, the moment I stop having fun doing this will be a sad day in my life. So whether I am shooting with a wedding client or a test session with you, the environment will always be relaxed, humorous but professional at all times. While I consider everyone I work with a friend, I also respect them as a client.
Fine Art and Everything Else Site
Honestly, I am generally always busy with paying clients. (I credit this partly to quality of work, and also a helpful dash of good fortune of having wondeful clients skilled in the art of spreading the word) However, on rare ocassion I find myself needing a creative release or new lighting/camera equipment I want to test out before using on a paid client. In these cases I tend to do TFP/CD sessions with models I have worked with in the past because I know it will not be a waste of mine or their time. I do however work with models I have seen nothing but great work from or ones recommended to me by photographers I know. So feel free to contact me if you would like to do something down the line. Just don't take it personally if I say I am busy right now or if I say, "Let's shoot some time" and that some time isn't for a few months.
