Welcome to the official MM page of Didier Photography aka DidierPhoto.
I have photographed my first passion- cars and racing -for a million years but I've wanted to work with models since I got my first real camera all those years ago. I'm just finally getting the chance and trying to make the most of it.
I can probably be talked into shooting any number of things and, in a perfect world, I would really like to do sexy, wearing-as-little-as-possible or nothing shoots on location, indoors or out. I'm here for the experience, the fun of working with like-minded people, and to capture some great images we can call our own.
I've had a great time here so far, talking and shooting with the people here on MM. The models that I've had the pleasure of shooting with have been wonderfully supportive and it's been great sharing ideas and time with each of them. It's also been great sharing ideas and comments with other photographers as well.
I like to think of myself as pretty darn easy to get along with since I am here to have fun. After you read my rant at the bottom you may be tempted to think otherwise, but I truly encourage you to contact any of the awesome people I've worked with here to get their opinion.
In order to keep things low key and pressure free so as to enjoy the experience, at this time everything I do is TF. I don't have a budget that allows me to pay for your time. I'm sorry for that but I can't help it. The upside is that you don't have to pay me either!
If you're still here, thanks for taking the time. Hopefully we'll cross paths again and maybe even shoot together sometime!
p.s.- I also have more photos on my DidierPhoto facebook page. Stop by if you've got nothing else to do- feedback is always welcome!
******************* MY RANT - PLEASE READ *******************
(It's what all the REAL photographers are doing, so this is mine
I’m a 54 year old married guy with two sons, a full time job and a house and cars to maintain. I make time for this because it's something I want to do, not because I’m short on things to keep me busy.
Talk to me. I shoot for fun and to improve my port and yours. Simply put, this doesn’t make my time less valuable than yours, it simply makes the shoot less important. All I really ask of anyone on this site is to be somewhat professional and a decent human being. Just think of it as basic common courtesy. You never know, I may be looking to pay someone for a shoot one day (could happen
) and I'm pretty sure it won't be someone who can't return an email or a text. It’s the 21st century folks and, from what I’ve seen, it’ll take you between 10 and 30 seconds of your life to keep me from wasting what precious little free time I can find.
When I send out an email, text or message I’d like a reply. I've been told that sometimes no answer IS an answer. I can't buy that. Yes, no, and maybe are good examples of answers. I promise I'll go away if you say no. I’m a big boy and I can handle it (I also kind of expect it, but that’s another story altogether). If you don’t say no, it means maybe to me, and I’m going to keep bugging you- if the door’s not closed, it’s partially open. Please don’t just leave me hanging, that's all I'm asking.
Thanks for listening
