* I don't update this page often. Check out my website for my most current pictures: www.madfotografy.zenfolio.com
* Chicago-based with concentrations in glamour, beauty, fashion and artistic photography.
* I like fun shoots (doesn't everyone?). Save the drama for your llama. Being pleasant scores more points than looks.
* Photography is my only artistic outlet. I’ll use my time with you wisely.
* Please note: TF/Test shoots: If there is a mutual agreement to collaborate the following will need to be provided by the model unless otherwise agreed upon:
* I take a personal approach to showing the personality of every model that shoots with me. I smile at the photographer who cranks out cookie-cutter pictures from his assembly line operation and tries to dazzle girls with his self-published, online magazines no one has ever heard of. Does he really believe in quantity over quality?
* My favorite models are those who are confident about their looks, enough to occasionally laugh at themselves. Like when Cindy Crawford once said, “Even I don’t look like Cindy Crawford first thing in the morning.”
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT FROM ME
• Several enhanced images (6-8). I do not supply unedited proofs to anyone. No exceptions.
• I reside in and shoot out of Lisle.
• I do not shoot models under the age of 18.
• You will need to sign a Model Release. If you want to see it prior to the shoot, I can email you.
• Sure, you may bring an escort to our shoot! As long as that person understands the word, “invisible”.
• What we shoot will depend on our ideas. So if you have any, don’t be shy. Yours are probably better than mine anyway.
• A shoot usually lasts under 2 hours. Shoots are scheduled on weekdays between 9am - 4pm.
• Generally, I prefer not to shoot on weekends as I like to spend that time with my family. (Because after all, “A man who does not spend time with his family is not a man.” – Vito Corleone)
