One can only grow as an artist with experience, and it's experience I seek.
I like to think I'm very approachable and try to be very flexible. My goal is to build relationships and trust. This leads to future opportunities that are hopefully mutually beneficial.
I enjoy fashion photography and studio photography, but I REALLY enjoy doing unique and out of the ordinary things. Sure, a lot of photographers claim to be "unique" and "different". Here's an example of some of my "different" work:
Yup. I ate paint chips as a child.
I enjoy trying to tell a story with a single image. I like making people laugh, cringe, smile, wince and wonder.
I am willing to trade my services for your time. Feel free to contact me to request a TFP shoot.
If we agree to a TFP/TFCD project I reserve the right to not share all of my images as not all shots are keepers. If we agree a shot is good, you may have a copy once I complete the editing process. I will supply the images either via email, the web, CD, or DVD - it's up to you how you would like to have them delivered. I will supply the images in a hi-res JPG format. I do not provide RAW files or PSD files.
I prefer models do not bring "escorts" on our shoots. If you would like to bring an escort, let's discuss it ahead of time. If you show up with one or more people without discussing it first, I may end the shoot early.
I have comments from models I've worked with in my Credits section. You may also contact models from my port for references. You'll find I am always professional. I expect the same professional behavior from models I work with.
Models under the age of 18 must have a parent or legal guardian present, no exceptions. I will ask for state issued ID for proof of age if you look too young.
I will not request nude shots. It's not my thing. I am not on MM because I'm trying to get my jollies, I'm happily married and would like to stay that way.
I have a standard model release form that I ask all models to sign. I must have a release signed prior to shooting. Without the release we can't do a shoot.
While I appreciate all of the random friends requests, I only accept requests from people I might actually work with in some capacity. I'll add you as a friend if you're local, plan to be local or if we can otherwise work together at some level. If you randomly send me a friend request and you live more than a state away, I'll probably not accept the request. I'm not trying to be rude, I'm just trying to keep my friends list useful as a networking tool. Thanks for the understanding!
