My name is Chuck. I'm a professional photographer specializing in portraiture.
[b][i]Ongoing Projects and Open Castings:[/i][/b]
* You in Your place. Yes, you get the convenience of me coming to you. It's my challenge to work with what you've got at your home. I don't expect many, if any, locations to be spectacular. It's my job to make it look great.
*The white tank - a simple white tanktop. Sexy, yet subtle. Shot at my studio.
*Swimsuits - both early morning and dusk shoots.
Unless I am specifically casting for a paying client's, If I've contacted you about a shoot the shoot would be a trade.
[b]Every image in all of my modelmayhem portfolios was created on a trade basis. Yes, hair, makeup, wardrobe, sets, famous actors, playboy playmates...all of them. Why? Because I produce good work. Because there is value to what we create together.[/b]
This is my job and I am 100% freelance. I will almost always reschedule a portfolio/trade shoot if a job comes up. I expect you to do the same for castings, auditions and jobs.
[b]What you should know about me[/b]
•This is my job - I take my job seriously.
•I don't pay models if I am working on our respective portfolios - All of the models in my profiles have agreed to work with me in exchange for great photography instead of money. My clients pay models.
•My goal with tests is to get a great image for us that will get us paying work.
•I don't pay kit rentals, gas money or other items you aren't paying me.
•I typically shoot Monday-Friday from 9-2. Nights and weekends are reserved for paying gigs and my wife and two kids.
•I use my garage as my studio - it works, it's free and I don't have to pack up my equipment every time I want to shoot.
•Do your homework - ask for or check references. There's plenty of people on this site that can and will vouch for me.
Email any of the models listed on any of my profiles for a glowing review.
[b]What you get when you work with me:[/b]
•A tightly edited online gallery of proofs within a couple days of the shoot.
•Copies of each file from the proof gallery in Hi res format.
•If you want images retouched I bill at $50/image.
[b][i]Because a model decided she wanted to renege on her part of the TRADE part of the shoot I have posted copy of the usage statement provided to all models and stylists I work with. Please read it. If you can't agree to it then you can pay me instead.
[b][quote]All photo shoots will be under a model release. If you want Hi Res copies of the files - you sign the release or pay for usage.[/quote][/b]
