Hello and thank you for stopping by my portfolio. Your comments are always appreciated. For those who would like to work with me I have a few rules. Please read them as it will save time in the long run.
General Rule: If you respond to a message I have sent and show interest in a shoot or you contact me expressing interest in a shoot and then fail to respond to any messages I send I will not work with you in the future. Even a simple, I am no longer interested or I can't make it is better than no response at all.
General Rule: If you arrange a shoot with me and fail to show with no explanation or reason why I will not work with you in the future.
General Rule: I only hire models for paid work that I have done TF work with in the past.
Paid Work (Where you Hire Me)
My rates are extremely reasonable. Visit my website above for more information.
If you cannot make a shoot I need at least 48 hours notice. Less than 48 hours notice requires half the fee. Less than 24 hours notice requires the full fee. I understand there are emergencies and if you have one let me know and I may wave this policy. I don't like this rule but way to many people fail to show and act like it is no big deal.
I am doing almost no TF work at this time. The concept has to really be special or there has to be something I really need before I will consider it. TF is a great way to build portfolios but I simply don't have the time for much of it any more.
If you fail to show up for a shoot and do not notify me I will not work with you in the future. I require 48 hours notice for cancellations of TF work as well so that I have the opportunity to fill the time slot with other TF or paid work. This is simple courtesy. Again I realize there are emergencies so if you have one just let me know. Again I don't like this rule but too many people don't take TF work seriously and feel that being a no-show is no big deal. Wrong. It is time and time really is money.
If you show up for a shoot and do not put forth your best effort I will probably not work with you again in the future.
Unless otherwise negotiated all of my TF work is TFCD.
Paid Work (Where I Hire You)
Unless I really need something specific I only hire models/stylist/wardrobe designers that I have done TF work with in the past. This is partly a thank you for having done TF work and partly because someone saying they are experienced does not make it so.
If I hire you and you cannot make the shoot I need at least seven days notice so I can hire a replacement. Less than that and I may be forced to bill you for any income lost. Unless it was a serious emergency I will not work with you again.
If I hire you and you are unprofessional or fail to put forth your best effort I will not work with you again.
That said I hope to work with as many of you as possible. I love a good shoot and I love photography. Its the best job on Earth.
