I have been photographing still life all my life (yep, a long time). Some how I fell into shooting some beautiful women. They say I have a good eye, So I am taking the next step.
My style is more of a free style. We talk about where we need to go to get the shot and I leave it up to you to find the pose. Now it is my turn to find the shot. This way, I some how find the inner beauty as well as the outer.
I do shoot for money going both ways. I perfer to shoot TF due to mutual ownership and split profit from any made off the photos. There is no problem for me to help pay for gas and snacks.
[b] My process [/b]
I have kind of a unique process for my shoots.
First I like to have fun shooting. Yes it is a lot of work but I like to try and keep things relaxed and light (pun intended).
I believe this is a cooperative process. Yes as a model sometimes you get to be a cloths hanger and don’t get to be creative. Well, neither do I in those shoots but let’s make the best of it and get some good shots then we can make some magic once the ‘work’ is over. Yes work comes first.
So as I am shooting I will review the shots with you and ask for your input. I am looking for constructive criticism. Ya, I know the first couple may suck. But the idea is to un-suck them. This may mean different angle and lighting. Sorry, that’s all I have to work with as a photographer is angle and light. You as the model have the hard part. WE need to work together to find a pose that will work.
After the shoot you get first cut on the shots. So we can keep the un-suck-ie ones. I get second cut. Once we are done cutting I will load the remaining JPGs on a thumb drive. Yes, you get to walk away from the shoot with unedited pics. [u][i]So, please bring a tumb drive to our shoot.[/i][/u] Do with them what you want. Just remember to give me credit and send me a tear sheet. If you somehow make some money with them … Send me my share … it’s only fair.
If you don’t have time to go thru the pictures after the shoot I will not send a cd of the pictures (period). We need to go thru them together. That way, I know they are the ones you want me to have and you know the ones you have are the ones I want you to have. I am busy but I will carve out an hour for us to meet to go thru them. But, if you flake on that meeting, don’t expect a copy. I don’t deal with disrespect and not showing up for a meeting is very high on the list of respect no-no’s.
