I feel your portfolio should be representative of what you are trying to achieve as a model or photographer. As a model, don't list "NO" to shooting nudes in your status then provide a number of nude photos in your portfolio.
PLEASE DON'T ASSUME THAT I WILL AUTOMATICALLY ASK YOU TO POSE OUTSIDE OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE IF I CONTACT YOU!
I will only "friend" models, photographers and M/U artist with whom I've worked.
I'm not published nor do I shoot for any magazines. I shoot for myself and my client(s). I am good, but I am not rich. With that said, I cannot afford to pay every model I contact nor will I ask them to pay me. I am happy to work with ANY model requesting TFP (trade/time for print). My photography interest lies in artistic nudes (B & W), body portraits & implied nude. I am not however limited to these styles. This leaves me open to any style of photography that will help to further my career and standing. I am interested in working with any and all models who share an interest in my style of photography.
I DO NOT/WILL NOT SHOOT PINK (open-legged)!
I also prefer to not shoot STRINGS (monthly cycle)! We can wait 'til this has passed to shoot.

Shooting is done mostly in my home studio, but I can travel to any location, local of course. I enjoy shooting with models of ALL levels who wish to shoot "TFP". For "TFP" ONLY, I provide you with (5) 8 x 10 glossy's of my choice. These will be mailed to you after editing. A CD with jpegs is $25. For paid models, prints are extra. I post all photos on my website for you (and only you) to review. You are given the option to purchase more photos from my website.
A few things to take into consideration when shooting with me:
1) PLEASE be early.
If you're early, you're on time. If you're on time, you're late!
2) Hair and make-up are your responsibility
3) If posing nude, do NOT wear undergarments or tight fitting material at least 2 hours before the shoot
4) Please keep phones in "silent" mode
5) Escorts are welcome but must not interfere!
6) Please bring a valid ID
7) Please be hydrated and have skin properly moisturized
8) If posing Boudoir/Lingerie, please bring 3 matching garments (color and material). NO g-strings or thongs please!
9) NO SMOKING!!!
With the technology of today, everyone has the ability to contact someone at a moments notice. If you cannot make a shoot, PLEASE call ahead of the shoot. More contact info is available on my webpage. It is not my job to remind you of our scheduled shoot. We are professionals and this is our business. When I set a date, It is put in my calendar in 3 seperate areas so I will not forget! Might I suggest you take a similar approach to scheduling.
PAID MODELS: Tardiness is a pet peeve of mine. If you're early, you're on time. If you're on time, you're late and you just saved me money!
My shooting hours are Monday - Saturday, 9am - 6pm.
Sunday is a day of rest.
I DO NOT RELEASE ORIGINAL/RAW FILES! High resolution jpegs can be purchased for your portfolio seperately. If you liberate photos from my website, you obviously like my work so PLEASE make sure I get credit.
I often shoot "B & W Single Light Nudes", but I am open to other styles. If this style interest you, let's get together and shoot!
Every photographer spends years, if not decades creating his/her own personal style. To help you, as a model better understand what I like, and hope to someday become, please look up the following photographers:
Edward Weston Annie Liebowitz Herb Ritts
Victor Skrebneski Kishin Shinoyama Helmut Newton
Ellen Von Unwerth Jerry Schatzberg Andre de Dienes
PLEASE be cautious when working with the following MM'ers. I and other photographers have had issues.
