My wonderful family (and Tami's nephew... the tall one)!
Congratulations to April Nicole (Mayhem #3155428) on our first COVER!
Recently deleted over half of my friend list because of inactivity, distance, etc. and it amazes me how many of my remaining "friends" haven't changed an avatar in forever!
I'm going to apologize in advance because I'm going to come across as a grumpy, crab ass of an ogre. I PROMISE you that I'm not!!! It's just that I've dealt with a LOT of crap from models who don't read this and/or think that my time is invaluable to me. All I ask is that you keep our date if reasonably possible, BE ON TIME, be prepared (hair, makeup, nails, outfits, etc.), and for the love of God, know where I'm located!!! If you flake on me at the last minute with some lame excuse and yes, I've heard some dandies, you've pretty much shot yourself in the foot. Anyhoo, if you can manage to be half way professional, I'm a HAPPY CAMPER!!!
Ok, here goes nuthin'...
I will do my best to respond to ALL messages. Blow up my home page with tags, my inbox with messages, and photos with comments! I love that little envelope icon! It makes me feel important and special. LOL If I message you, I would appreciate the same professionalism and courtesy!
Ok, I'll keep this short and sweet... and pay attention. It will be on the test.
I eat, sleep, and breathe many aspects of photography and in regards to modeling, I am picky with who I work with on "Trade For" shoots. You have to have a look that I would want for MY portfolio. Rates may apply but will be very reasonable if you want my quality and style for your portfolio. Please don't hesitate to inquire, regardless. My decision depends on; again, your look, and depends on my mood and availability at the time.
If you're interested in working together, I will more than likely expect something on the sexier side unless previous ideas have been discussed. I do enough family portraits and senior pictures on a regular basis that I'm not interested in booking more of that style through this site for the most part.
~ I don't care about nude work. It's not something I'm all that interested in or care about. Have done it, will do it occasionally, certainly don't expect it. Personally, implieds are my favorite style and as far as I really care to go.
I live in Beloit, WI (see above) with my wonderful and supportive girlfriend of 4 years and her 2 kids that I adore (also see above). Having said that, I assure you that I'm not here to find a 20 something year old date. Chloroform soaked rags are NOT a part of my photography gear. Neither are ball gags, whips, chains, handcuffs, etc. No model that I've worked with has ever been hit on, propositioned, groped, bound, gagged, sold into slavery, or been found in a dumpster. You're as safe with me as if you were sitting in your own living room.
I have been running a camera for several years trying to improve my skills and techniques with every shoot. I've done many styles from children, landscapes, and weddings, to Maxim style to full blown nudes. Also, I've recently began working with a local radio station photographing events ranging from celebrities to VIP parties and have recently shook hands with Beloit College to photograph events and lifestyle work.
Regardless of what "we" do on the modeling side, I'm laid back, easy to work with, and professional. I've seen it all and done almost all of it. If you think you can surprise me, I accept your challenge. LOL
Fair warning... my studio work is done in nothing more than a small garage heated with a torpedo heater when the temps drop. It's certainly not fancy but I make it work.
There are VERY few models that I would even consider paying and they are higher end professionals.
Check me out on Facebook too and see the real dork that I am!
if dates are set more than a week in advance~ (I try to keep this as up to date as possible)
2-22 105.9 VIP Party
