Cheri Leah - June, 2009 Issue PLAYBOY Model
Allie - Miss Teen International 2007
Wilmington / Wrightsville Beach, NC based freelance photographer specializing in beach, glamour and artistic portraiture.
I've worked with models ranging from first-timers that have never faced a lens... to models that have appeared in Maxim and PLAYBOY.
If I've contacted you, it means that I'm actually interested in working with you and feel as though you have a distinctive look that I would hope to enhance. I'm very selective about whom I choose to contact. Feel special ; ). Quality vs. quantity...get it?
I understand and appreciate that some are more "adventurous" than others...and I always respect personal limits.
Professional references available upon request.
I'm glad that I missed out on that transitional point when the art of photography became the "art" of Photoshop. I prefer to concentrate on natural beauty. I retouch my images conservatively, so if you're looking for overworked, "cartoonish" Photoshopped pics...I'm not your guy. I know it's a simple concept, but I think you should actually look like you ; )
PHOTOGRAPHERS: If you'd like an honest assessment of of my experiences with the good, the bad... and the clueless flakes, please feel free to contact me.
MODELS: If you don't live within "shouting distance" and the likelihood that we will ever work together is virtually nonexistent, please save your friend requests. I'm not here to collect 5000 "friends".
RETOUCHERS: Please don't waste your time. I have zero interest in utilizing your services as I've found that most of you have absolutely no comprehension of the phrase "moderation is a virtue" (i.e., you don't know when to stop with "Fauxtoshop").
