I have studio space in Cleveland where I enjoy shooting both in a studio as well as outdoors. My goal is to always have a fun, energetic, relaxed, and professional session. The professional part includes reading and answering emails and a quick phone call before we shoot as part of the screening process to make sure a model will show. Also, I will tend to be more detail oriented on the front end than most photographers before a shoot where I like to have the picture in my head before picking up the camera.
Friends List - I like to keep the friends list to those people I have, want to or will be working with at some point in time and is what I like to try and use for my bookings. So read emails and no response usually means I drop people as I assume that means you are not interested in working together.
I always enjoy doing tf sessions and lately this is all I am doing. To me the camera is a stress reliever/hobby. With that said, if you want a tf session just ask and here are my normal terms right up front.
1.) I usually shoot on Sundays. Also, with my work schedule I can now occasionally shoot Friday during the day.
2.) I will shoot almost any style if it INTERESTS me where I think I will get shots for my port. I don't require skin even though there is a lot of it in my port and lists but when shooting any level of skin the model will always be allowed to review those images before the session ends.
3.) I will always ask for a commercial model release signed before a session starts.
4.) Generally, I will do around 8 - 10 edits for a session depending on what we get from the shoot. I give out websized/watermarked shots only for tf shoots.
5.) Send a message and not a tag and that way I know you read this page.
6.) If it is already a shot on my port I probably will not want to shoot it again.
7.) Looking through my lists down below and sending me a couple shots from those lists (Or shots from your own lists with ideas) that you like and we can pull off a version of as part of our session is a good way to get a shoot out of me. I like models with input.
8.) Escorts? Am I bringing one? (No I am not before somebody asks) Is the escort providing some value to the shoot like working Hair/Makeup? (If so, than yes they can come.) If you tell me that you need somebody there for support/security to sit on a couch and watch you or watch me I am going to say no. Feel free to ask to meet before a shoot to screen me or contact anybody in my top 12 or on my entire port as a reference.
9.) Yes, I like a model who reads and cares about what she is doing in front of the camera where I will assume everything on this profile has been read if we are going to work together.
