TRAVEL NOTICE: Currently in Virginia Beach but spending a LOT of time in California, New York, Oregon and Montreal lately.
** Been very busy with new consulting and business opportunities including International Celebrity/Product Endorsement. Working with a top agency in the U.S. and also dealing with U.S. and International Companies... along with trying to work on my first screenplay. If interested in any of the above please let me know.

If I contact YOU, I am NOT looking for you to pay me, just so you know.
Happy to work with new models. New SG girls with their Suicide Girl sets and am an approved photographer for Cosplay Deviants as well. I have been shooting since 2006 and got my start as a stock photographer. I shoot all styles and freelance for a number of companies.
**Regarding nudes: If you want to work with me AND we are shooting nudes and implieds (you are NUDE for those, lol) please know that I will need at least three self taken unphotoshopped, un-edited NUDE photos prior to booking (front, side and rear). Unedited pics from other photographers are useful as well but really I want to see the real you, sans make-up, editing and great lighting. Very happy to teach posing and confidence to newer models who need it and to mentor as well, however if you want to shoot nudes you have to be willing to be nude... kind of goes hand in hand. lol
Btw, overly photoshopped pics that hide EVERY possible flaw are not really for giving the photographer (and agents) a real representation of who you are. In addition, traveling is expensive and NEITHER of us wants to waste our time. I am less interested in another photographers skills in shopping your photo as I am in your actual look at the current time. If you are too shy to have nude photos on your Model Mayhem portfolio and/or to send photos then why shoot nude? It really is not for everyone so take it off your profile or be willing to be nude. So do not be surprised please.
Ok, what else do you need to know? FIRST, YES I NEED a phone number to contact you. Or a kik, or something you answer. If you do not provide it how can I possibly imagine that you are really interested in shooting? Lol So here is the deal.. I have multiple websites each with full contact info. You know why? Because I am legit and want business. Also, when I contact people I give them FULL contact info. So you have mine. So maybe some confidence or vetting of the people you are interested in working with is necessary or just say thanks but no thanks.. because "maybe" I am interested and "maybe" I will contact you does not work for professional people.
Next, I NEVER shoot without a signed model release. No model release equals no shoot. Also for the unitiated it protects us both. Plus, I use the standard Istockphoto/Getty model release a copy of which can be found here: http://www.istockphoto.com/docs/languag … elease.pdf or if I am shooting for SG or other groups I use theirs.
Also please know, if you schedule with me, and then blow me off for a shoot, don't expect to shoot with me again... AND for the record a cell phone call or text message cancelling an hour before because you stayed out late drinking and can't get your butt out of bed does not cut it.
Hopefully still interested in shooting? In that case here are some links to my work:
Website: http://www.gordonslifephoto.com/ Old not updated.
My home studio equipment includes: 4 AlienBees B800 Flash Units, 9ft paper backdrops and a CANON EOS-5D MARK II. Also have access to a professional studio in Virginia Beach and a few other cities as necessary. However, there is always a rental cost for studio time. Be forewarned.
Due to my schedule, VERY Selective Non-Nude TFP/CD HOWEVER if I am contacting you it is for a TF Shoot... NOT Paid (I am not paying you, nor am I asking you to pay me).
If you contact me for a shoot I expect you are interested in paying me OR your will have to convince me that you have something exceptional to add to my book, or make me LOVE your unique look or attitude. I like to shoot with excited and uninhibited people. Someone who brings something special to my work or is a joy to be around is always appreciated.
YES, ESCORTS ARE OK.
If you are paying me hell bring 20-30, lol. Let's do this, I will bring one for each you bring and if someone brings alcohol and music, we could have a party while you shoot but I doubt the photos would be very good. So that being said, if the shoot is TFP, then it is an annoyance to me but sei la vie. I STRONLY prefer to shoot without husbands or boyfriends looking over my shoulder. Models can of course bring along unobtrusive escorts that do NOT stay on set. The escorts MUST be quiet and please do not look to them for advice on shooting but instead stay focused on me. It is a major pet peeve of mine. I would much rather you just contacted any of the models or photographers that have worked with me and/or checked references. I have references.. do you? lol. Btw, if your escort is annoying do expect the shoot to be of short duration. Also YOU are responsible for your escorts behavior. Please no private wandering about my house, office, garage, property, or location unless looking for an ass whooping and later incarceration by our local police dept. So far better for them to sit in a car, or sit in a chair and be QUIET. No I do not need them to move things for me, lol but thanks.
I RARELY EVER shoot with the under 18 crowd outside of agency work, but if you want to work with me a PARENT has to sign the model release. I also insist upon meeting or speaking to a parent or guardian, and in most cases would actually prefer them to stay on set with their child.
Here is access to a public blogpost with numerous comments from people I have worked with, so please look at it: http://blogs.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuse … =482938902
The best way to contact me is e-mail: tom(AT)gordonslifephoto.com OR to ask for for my KIK or cell, or message me right here on model mayhem. Hope you can figure out my e-mail right?
Either way, thank you in advance for considering me. Hope I have not scared you away. If not, I look forward to working with you! :-)
I find this part of the profile annoying but since people consistently ask me..
