My "TF" philosophy is: Shoots are never really free. My time is valuable, as is yours..........so we both need to be professional and considerate, prepared and on time. I have had some models show up to shoots unprepared and with an attitude that they have nothing invested so what do they have to lose. REMEMBER, TF shoots have to benefit both parties. If confronted with an idea I am in no need of, I will still shoot it for you......and I would hope that you would extend to me the same courtesy.
Pet Peeves: Badly manicured finger and toe nails, as well as wrinkled garments and wardrobe that just plain, doesn't fit. And most of all FORGETTING THINGS. Personally, I don't consider experience as important as the aforementioned. I can direct anyone but hate spending hours in photoshop painting nails.
And while working with a complete crew is any one's dream, I have no problem with individuals using their own skills such as make-up application and coordinating wardrobe as long as the end result works.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions you have.
