Mayhem # 12144
I apologize to anyone who may have been confused by the disarray that has been my page for a while. I have spent the last couple of years going back to school to finish a BS in political science at OSU (for some of you long time members this will come as no surprise, lol). Now that I am officially finished there, I am moving on to begin law school at Willamette University starting at the end of Aug. 2013.
That being said, I will attempt to find the time to make my web presence look somewhat presentable in the interim period, however, I haven't decided yet as to whether or not to continue to invest in my official website. Please bear with me through this transitory period.
As far as shooting is concerned, yes, I am still working, although my time will again be severely constricted after I begin school in the Fall. Of course I'm open to paid work, but I realize that's not really what this site is all about. I am open to trade shoots, but understand that I'm ADHD so I have to be entertained to hold my attention. Nudes is a given for being at the top of the list, but beyond that, give me something fun to work with if you want to shoot trade. Any other questions don't hesitate to ask, I don't bite.....hard. 8}
So for the time being, I am most accessible through Facebook,
The most immediate way to contact me is by phone, 541-570-0136, and I wholeheartedly encourage anyone who has questions to do so; I'm much more fun in person. 8}
What I do:
I shoot just about everything, except weddings, unless it's a cool theme. I enjoy things that look/feel natural and organic, while I tend to avoid things that look/feel fake or forced. If it's nudes, the goal is artistic and classy.
I don't pay models, I don't allow "escorts," and I only shoot nudes (or an exceptionally cool theme with the right wardrobe, makeup, and person) for free, I'm sorry if this offends you. If I offer to shoot you for free, nude or not, this doesn't constitute an offer for a date or any other kind of romantic involvement (this should be obvious, I know, but it seems some like to flatter themselves a little too much).
I try to be kind, fair, respectful, and pleasant, even when life throws a curveball or two. That being said, if you're rude to me (or my family), especially for no justifiable reason (and for the record, just being an arrogant person or being a no call/no show flake both fall into this category), expect my responses to be direct, biting, and to the point. I am unapologetic about it. If you cannot be mature enough to be a polite and reasonable person, as well as considerate of other people's time (no just my own, but other people I have committments to as well), I have no desire to work with you, no matter how wonderful you may believe yourself to be.
The "golden rule" always applies. I prefer to surround myself with beautiful people, inside as well as out.
If you don't understand some of my images, watch this:
