Commercial, Editorial, Stock Photography

I have considerable fashion photography experience, including a wide range of runway coverage, such as LA, Orange County and Las Vegas Fashion Weeks. I've shot countless fashion shows. I've also shot a wide variety of fashion installations, specialty events, store and facility opening, and product launches. I've done quite a bit of studio work, but I prefer working on location.

I've cut way back on the assignments that I handle and pretty much dropped shooting Runway and Fashion Shows all together.  I’m not doing a lot of basic test shooting anymore, but I’m always looking for models to collaborate with for projects that I'm working on.

A lot of my work is experimental. I'm looking for classy, edgy, unusual, sensual images that have a strong editorial, commercial, ethereal or artistic element to them. I'm particularly looking for models just starting out with strong agency potential, models who picture themselves in a year or two walking the runway, being featured in editorial layouts and handling commercial assignments, and have the dedication, dependability and a collaborative spirit to follow through.

I've taught modeling (and photography) and have done a lot of model coaching, so dedication and dependability are more important than experience.

WORKING WITH MODELS: (A RELEASE with PHOTO ID is REQUIRED for all shoots.)

Since most of the project shoots that I’m doing are a little more involved than basic test shoots, they take a little more planning. So all my trade shoots start with a conversation.

A personal meeting before the shoot is best, but I realize that personal meetings aren't always practical, so a phone conversation will generally work as an alternative. We can send MM messages, e-mails or text messages after we've talked, but the conversation is essential. I won't do a shoot without first talking to a model preferably in person, or on the phone.

If you're not serious about shooting, don't waste your time or mine. If you've cancelled, rescheduled or didn't show up for three or more shoots in the last six months, it doesn't make sense to set up a shoot.

I don't schedule models that have another shoot planned for the same day.

If we shoot, bring a friend, if you want. A female friend works best, maybe someone to help with wardrobe changes, or hair and make up if there's no MUA or stylist involved. NO boy friends or significant others unless I've met them before hand, which means a personal meeting prior to the shoot. (I've had too many shoots go south because of impatient or jealous boyfriends.)

NO entourages or groups of friends, EVER. They always say they're going to be off doing their own thing, but half way through the shoot they're sitting around commenting on how the model is doing, offering unsolicited advice, or trying to get the model to hurry up.

For trade shoots, I usually provide a CD with 25 to 30 images on it, including at least six optimized images per hour of shooting, within two weeks. I never provide all images taken, and I don't provide images on paid shoots, unless arrangements have been made before-hand. If we work together on an ongoing basis, I can also provide promotional material such as comp and zed cards, calendars, posters and display prints up to 13" x 19".
