About me
============================================================


COMMERCIAL, EDITORIAL & STOCK PHOTOGRAPHY
LIFESTYLES * TRAVEL * FASHION * SPORTS * RECREATION

I've spent most of my career handling a wide variety of editorial assignments, some involving models, some not. Over the years, I've done a lot of work for daily newspapers, major magazines and corporate publications. Much earlier in my career, I've taught photography and modeling, written several book about photography and had a couple gallery exhibits of my work.

On the fashion side, I've got extensive experience shooting runway, covering events like LA, Orange County and Las Vegas Fashion Weeks. I've also done a considerable amount of studio work, but I prefer shooting on location.

============================================================


COMMERCIAL WORK

I've worked with a wide variety of commercial and corporate clients, including manufacturers, distributors and retail outlets.

At this point, I'm particularly interested in working with small to mid-sized fashion startups that are making the push to establish their brand  and expand their operations.

I have a special rate structure for working with smaller companies just starting out, where I'm dealing directly with the owner, partner or president of the firm. In such situations, there is no shooting charge. The client just pays for the images selected, with the price per image being dependent on the number of images selected.

I'm currently working on various personal projects and I'm always expanding my stock image library, so I have flexible rates for companies that can provide me with significant logistical support for those projects and for shoots that will result in images that have strong stock value.

============================================================


MODELS

I work with very beautiful, very talented and very bright models.

I'm doing very few test shoots, but I am interested in collaborating with models with strong editorial, commercial or agency potential, as well as creative make-up artists and knowledgeable fashion stylists, on interesting/challenging projects.

I'm generally pretty good at coming up with the models I need on a trade basis for the projects that I'm I working on, so I don't need to do a lot of hiring for those types of shoots. But I will hire a model when a commercial client is picking up the tab, or when I have a very specific requirement that I can't fill on a trade off basis.

However, unless a specific paid shoot is offered in the initial message, any considerations to shoot would be on a trade basis.

There are a number of things that I'm currently working on that I would do trade shoots for.

* Iconic LA (edgy urban fashion snap shots at LA landmarks).

* Aqua Maidens (in, around and under the water).

* Junior Style (recreational/activity/casual fashion).

* Southwest Highways & Byways (western U.S. road trips).

And, I'm open to suggestions for new projects, interesting concepts and unusual locations.

WORKING TOGETHER                  (RELEASES with PHOTO IDs are required for all shoots.)

I really enjoy shooting motivated, dedicated models, who are interested in working on collaborative projects that have strong commercial or artistic value.

But, if working together isn't a real priority for a model, it's probably not worth even setting up a shoot.

I never reschedule shoots with models that are no-shows, and last minute cancellations totally waste my time. So, if you've cancelled more than three shoots for any reasons in the last six months, it's not a good idea to set up anything. Either way, the potential for the shoot falling through is just too high.

If we wind up working together, go ahead and bring a friend, 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. (A parent is required for models under the age of 18.)

While a friend is welcome, boyfriends generally aren't unless arrangements have been made ahead of time, and groups of friends never are.

On shoots where you're responsible for bringing wardrobe, preselect and arrange five or six coordinated outfits prior to the shoot that match the theme of the shoot. Be sure to include things like shoes (or boots), accessories, jewelry, maybe even interesting props. (If we're going to do a beach shoot, besides anything else we might be shooting, bring at least three to five stylish/colorful bathing suites/bikinis.)

============================================================


IMAGES

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 don't provide images on paid shoots, unless arrangements have been made before hand.)

While models may use the provided images for whatever promotional or editorial purposes that they may want, they may not be edited, cropped, manipulated, composited or modified in any way. That would constitute a violation of the copyright.

============================================================


FRIENDS REQUESTS

If you want to work together or like my work, just send me a message, tag or picture comment before the Friends Request. I'll do the same. (I have no interest in extending and accepting Friends Requests, simply to beef up the numbers.)
