I have been on here a little more lately, and beginning to understand this is more of a social site for some. This is supposed to be used for NETWORKING, not making friends, not creating lists of "a HUNDRED images you wish you thought of" or "biggest breasts ever". Please keep it professional when you cross over to this side of the railroad tracks.
I'm not here to flirt or make friends, I'm not just somebody with a camera, I take my craft seriously. I have invested 10's of thousands to learn this craft of Photography and Retouching and still learning as I feel every creative should always try and continue to expand their horizons. So if you are not a benefit to me (not always about money) then I will not waste my time.
That being said I'm here to meet new Business minded creatives and capture some images that have that RAW visual impact needed to make it.
If you are a model understand a few things:
-I'm not about sending messages back and forth, I may ask a question or two and answer a question or two of yours, then I ask for your number because it is an easier and more efficient way to communicate not because I want to date you.
-If you flake on me once or even sound like you 'might' flake on me, paid shoot or not I will no longer work with you.
-If you would like to bring an escort by all means do so and let me know in advance, don't show up on set at a place that requires permits for the amount of people that will be on set with your 'husband', his two friends and your dog like it is ok to do. I do not mind escorts, I do understand this is a crazy world and some feel more comfortable with escorts, but leave the drama at HOME!
To the MUAs out there:
-For me to consider you and take you on as a part of my team, you have to actually have a port that shows the quality that is needed to make it I'm not going to pay for shoots or waste my clients time and money on experiments (if its a trade/test shoot, by all means get your experiment on thats what its for)
-Stick to the script, when photo(s) are shown to you of what I or my client envisions, please make sure you come very close to that even with your own flavor
-My TF* anything is very limited, the shoot would have to be very dynamic for me to consider shooting it for free. Not to say that I am against it, if it is experimental, sounds fun, allows me to be creative or all around a good collaboration with a fun team I may be for it. Just hit me up and please have details. Time, location, models, MUA, wardrobe SOMETHING. Do NOT hit me up and expect me to put everything together.
-If a PAID shoot comes up and I have to cancel or vice versa, by all means MAKE that money! I know I am, so please respect that, give some sort of notice if you do. For those that have been flaked on, know how that feels and never do it to another working professional.
ONLY send a friends request if you have ideas you would like to share and collaborate on. I'm not here for a social connection, this is for artistic WORK!
If I haven't scared you off yet, thats GREAT, because I know you are a person that understands and I would love to work with you and produce some amazing and moving imagery. Hit me up ANYTIME!
***Happy Shooting to ALL!!!!***
