Mayhem # 1194008
I have owned a modeling agency in the past (Harris Models). I have had the good fortune to discover a number of women who have been awarded and well compensated in the media and modeling world for their beauty and talent. As my website illustrates the women I photograph possess rare and "unforgettable" features. As a result I only find 4-6 each year for a photo session.
The most important qualities I search for in models are:
1. Outstanding face (ie Amanda Seyfried) and figure
2. Passionate about creating great photographs
3. Personality and poise.

My goal related to this MM profile is to create images of beautiful women with which are equal to ones found in Vanity Fair or Vogue and are unforgettable. On my website www.harrisimagemakers.com you will find photographs of dresses and gowns inspired by Vanity Fair, Lanz and others created for Harris Image Makers by Alis Fashion Design. The purple gown worn by women in my portfolio and website was inspired by the gown in the Great Gatsby movie which was created by Nina Ricci. (these photographs will be found on the Fashion Gallery page on my website and have been featured in numerous fashion shows and in the local media). Each year I collaborate with a gifted fashion designer and create at least one new gown or dress design.
My goal has always been to capture beauty in its natural form and avoid doing significant editing of images which can misrepresent the model. Unfortunately many photographers do significant editing of photographs and when the model shows up for a photo session it is not a pleasant surprise. Whenever the weather allows I like to do outdoor shoots and take advantage of natural light since I consider that light source to be the most complimentary. My hope is that Model Mayhem will be a great place to discover and photograph rare and special women who deserve to be recognized, rewarded and admired for their beauty, grace and charm.
Every year I choose one model I have photographed for our website as the annual winner and that model will be featured for the following year. If you are interested in a photo session please let me know. I pay $50/hour for these sessions. If the model desires a professional level portfolio with photos from our session one will be provided free of charge. (at least a $500 value). Digital images from the session can be provided. If it is mutually beneficial I will entertain TFP sessions.
Since I may rent equipment, buy outfits, or leave time open for a session I expect the model to keep her appointment. If a model cancels a session without a credible reason or does not give me at least a 24 hour notice I will not have any future photo sessions with that model.
I look forward to the opportunity to be your photographer.
