A Little About Me
I've been shooting actively with models since 2006. While I now primarily work with paying clients I still like to shoot some fun creative stuff with models from time to time. My model work primarily consists of glamour and editorial style photography. Over the years my style has evolved but I have really come to love images that depict the beautiful sensuality of the female form.
I am currently engaged in a project for a gallery exhibit that I have been selected for. I already have most of the work done for it, but I am currently looking for some more dramatic and erotic stuff to add to it. If this is something that strikes your fancy and are willing to collaborate on a trade basis.. hit me up.
You can see a small sampling of my work here, but the lions share of my best work is on my website http://mjdigitalart.com
A little about working with me....
As I said earlier, I primarily shoot as a creative outlet, and hopefully to create really cool material. I have limited opportunities for TF work. If you are a new model and are looking to build your portfolio, I can usually help you out for a small fee. Please don't be afraid to approach me with any ideas that you may have. I'm a pretty reasonable guy.
We will often bring in our own very qualified MUA's and Stylists, (we're connected) and while we expect you to provide wardrobe when possible, if there is a wardrobe specific item we usually will provide it.
I believe in internet safety. I have no problem with meeting over coffee before our shoot, and I encourage chaperone's.
Whether you are shooting with me, or anyone else.. make sure someone knows where you are going, and who you are going with. Arrange a check in call within a half hour of our meet time, and at regular intervals afterward. It is a dangerous world out there these days... you can't be too careful, and I am more than happy to accommodate and facilitate whatever your needs for safety.
You will find with me, that I am a very respectful, and respectable person.. at times to a fault. I would encourage you to check with the people I've worked with. I'm strictly above board. My biggest fault.. I occasionally get busy, and get an editing backlog.. in which case there can be extended wait times for the second round of images from me.. more on that below.
I prefer to work with people who are drama free... sadly sometimes you just never know. As a result of this my reputation was damaged by half truths and outright lies a few years ago. Sadly... I've recently discovered those rumors still abound. If you like my work and would like to work with me, I would like to encourage you to talk to me and work with me, keeping in mind the lies that you've heard. Bring an escort... take every "safety" precaution you desire... you will find the accusations and the rumor to be complete bullshit. I am an honest above the board guy who has nothing but respect for the people I work with... right up until the point you cross me... and then I simply move on.... I don't do drama... and prefer to avoid it. Sadly... people who love drama.. tend to bring it to you when you walk away from them because of it.
My only real expectation is open communication between us. If for some reason you will be late or will not be able to make a shoot, a phone call, or e-mail at least 24 hour in advance is not an unreasonable request, but a few days warning is even better. I often have a team of people lined up and preparations made for our shoot, something that requires hours of legwork, once you've committed to doing a shoot with us, we expect that you will follow through, or at the very least give us enough advance notice to find a replacement. I am VERY intolerant of No Call/No Shows, or last minute cancellations.. either will put you on a deposit list the next time you want to schedule a shoot with me.
Image Delivery Policy
TF* Shoots - I now deliver my photos via my SmugMug website. When I get your photos finished I will contact you with the link to your album, and the password to get into it. You will have the ability to download images for free, or order prints at my cost. I no longer do CD's.. actually that's not true.. I will do a CD, but it will cost you. CD's take me about an hour to put together, burn, package and ship. It is much quicker and easier for me to deliver the images to you via SmugMug and it's free for you...
When I do a shoot with you, I generally will get the best of the images out to you right away. How many? It varies.. sometimes it's just a few, other times a dozen or more. There are a lot of variables that come into play... how many images we shot, how inspired the shoot is, my current editing queue, schedule etc.. in any case you will have the best of your shoot within days.. often times the same day.. then eventually I will make a second pass through your set.. to see if there are more in there. This will generally happen within a month.. but it does sometimes go longer.. I tell my models this.. that first burst of images, is our TF arrangement. The second burst is bonus.
Where are we?
I am located in Vancouver, WA. however... I shoot everywhere. Most of my shoots happen on location somewhere, or in a rented or borrowed space... occasionally we'll even clear out the living room and set up here at home...
Thanks for your time and effort in reading this over.. I'm looking forward to meeting with you and working with you on your project!
