I'm currently based in Tulsa, OK through the end of the year. My work takes me to NYC and LA on occasion. (Note on location: Because I work with pre-existing photos in the digital realm, there's no need to be in the same city as my clients as a photographer would need to be.)
Due to my increased expansion into stage and film projects, my photo illustration work is now vastly decreased - at the same time demand for my work is increasing. Where were all you talented, beautiful peeps when I first launched TuTchT??? Jus sayin. lol
I guess it's a good problem to have, but the result is kinda frustrating. There are so many talented models, entertainers and photographers out there who have reached out but that I've yet to collab wit. But DEF stay in touch, folk! --- I'm always interested in stumbling onto new talent out there - many of whom I'll end up working with in some aspect in the coming years. I'm also currently on the hunt for ACTOR/Model/Musician/Dancers to cast in my stage shows and film projects. If you got the goods, hit me up wit links to your port & reels - Let's make some hot magic!

THE IMPORTANT WORK:
I've been blessed to work with the top male models of color in the industry... but below is the most important model I've put tha TuTchT on yet - I only wish he were the most influential.
^600,000 children - including the young Somali man-to-be in this pic - are in immediate danger of starvation right now...yeah...right now. PLEASE visit the cnn link below for a list of links to reputable aid organizations taking donations - right now. "Drought" is an act of Nature, "Famine" is an act of man. This disater is preventable. (The Somali word "Qaybsasho" I incorporated in the piece means "to divide and share") GO HERE TO DONATE:
BELOW: I broke from my hiatus last year to join up with a very talented young Haitian model at RED MODELS - Just trynna use my skillz to get the word out about Earthquake relief. Donations are still needed!
MORE OF MY WORK:
BELOW: One of the most popular joints in my AMERICAN SWAG series - Hot collab with international model Dominique Hollington (with RED at time of collab, now with DNA.NYC) & photographer Jon Malinowski (image used with permission)
(BELOW: A hot TuTchT collab - The model is my "thugmuse" SeanDon @ Boss Models, NYC. lol. The photo is a phenomenal shot by Tarrice Love, MM#10632, used with permission. This is from a series called "Souljahs of the New Renaissance" The concept is pretty obvious, lol. Sean is set in a romanticized version of his native Brooklyn and the graffiti inscriptions are in Latin. Any of ya'll scholars out there wanna translate what I said about my homie? lol.)
No TFPs at the present time. Sorry, i'm mad busy & let's be real wit it...I'm broke like all ya'll are. lol. The few jobs I take right now must be beneficial to me in one way or another. As a screenwriter, playwright & composer I often barter talent-for-talent when I'm casting for projects with limited budgets. If you would like to work with me contact me. And yo, let's save time and avoid "the dance" lol...you don't have to lead with something vague like "we should work together..." Please just let me know specifically what you'd like to do & what kind of budget you're working with, if any. I'll get back with you with and be just as to-the-point about what I can do.
As should be evident by my listing I am NOT a photog. I work with photographs provided to me by the client. Occasionally these are non professional pics but my work is, of course, at its best when I start with a great photograph. I always give photog & model credit. (permissions must be obtained. More info about this can be found by clicking the "pricing" link above.)
My time is still very limited but I've got some exciting collabs lined up. So enjoy, reach out & I'll do the same.
I'm always interested in meeting model/actors with REAL acting chops...a passion for the craft not just feinin for the Hollywood celeb shine. If that's you, by all means hit me up & have an actor's reel ready cuz I'll ask. lol.
