***Back in Melbourne, needing to build my portfolio and OPEN to TFCD arrangements. I'm always looking for like-minded, creative people to collaborate with***
My name is Kate Pudim and I'm a professional photographer specialising in contemporary glamour portraiture. I recently returned to my home city of Melbourne after three years of living in North Japan.
I have a bachelor of Contemporary Arts with a double major in photography and theatre. I really enjoy the process of producing dramatic and beautiful imagery and getting into my creative zone. I love collaborating with other creative people whether it be make-up artists, fashion designers, stylists, actors or dancers.
Relating to TFCD: It should be known to models that I have a particular style that I want to develop and it is geared towards fashion inspired glamour. I won't just work with anyone. I need to know that the time I spend preparing, retouching and working on a shoot will be worth it. This means reliability, professionalism, a positive attitude and attention to styling and detail before arrival. I also ask that all models sign a model release form, detailing copyright and use of the images.
I treat all the models I work with, with the respect they deserve for offering their time and talents to me. This means a comfortable setting where we can all have fun and enjoy the experiece of shooting together. In return, I offer a small selection of high resolution, retouched images for the model to use for their own folio and self promotion.
My philosophy is to dream big, work hard and practice! Every shoot is worth the practice and experience to become a better photographer and artist!
