BIG ANNOUNCEMENT!!! I'm relocating to Portland, Oregon from Chattanooga, TN in June 2013. I'm starting accept bookings for late June/July for Portland and the surrounding area. Be sure to look me up on FB to stay updated on my work. www.facebook.com/thetrdphotography
A few things about working with me....
1. I take my work very seriously. I provide a laid back fun atmosphere at a shoot to make the model comfortable and get good shots. I work with both established models and girls just breaking into the scene. I expect you to show up, if you flake on a shoot or a meeting without calling to let me know what's up, I will not work with you again. I'm very busy and my time is valuable.
2. I only accept PAID work. I do not do tf at this time.
3. I get a lot of questions from models asking if I shoot non-tattooed models, I do. However, most of my port reflects my focus, which is the alternative, edgy scene. I still love doing other shoots from time to time though. So if you're a glamour model, don't hesitate to ask me to work with you.
4. To book or make inquiries, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or via my FB Page, facebook.com/thetrdphotography
A few things models have said about me...
"Ricky Davis is one of my favorite photographers to work with. He is truly a professional gentleman. TRD is talent of a creative master mind. I ♥ it" Stephanie Slaughter
"I highly recommend TRD Photography. Ricky is awesome guy all around. Very professional and super creative!!!! Any models looking for great photos for their portfolio , definitely need to work with TRD." ♥ Vanessa Michelle Filth
"To any model that hasn't worked with Ricky Davis, He is a very professional photographer, I feel 100% comfortable shooting with him. He is an overall nice wonderful guy and an amazing photographer. Any model that is considering working with him, i recommend that you do. You will not be disappointed." Model Mandi Mayhem
"I recently worked with Ricky and he is absolutely amazing!!! His photography is beyond words and he is such a laid back guy. I've never felt so comfortable with a photographer before and he is 100% PROFESSIONAL. I highly recommend working with him.
He's ruined me for other photographers. lol I don't want to work with anyone else now." Model Jessi Jawbreaker
"well...... if you havent shot with TRD Photography yet.... YOU SHOULD! I have recieved so many compliments from the photos I have uploaded that he took... He never rushes you or ever complains... he is a great guy to work with and I strongly reccomend him for anybody looking for a true (get great shots) professional photographer!!
He is always open for new opportunities and new ideas to shoot with.. so throw something at him..and I am sure he can make it awesome!!!" Model Cali Glover
"1 word describes TRD Photography and Ricky Davis - Brilliant! You can expect top quality images and fun, creative themes. Working with Ricky was a joy! He is absolutely one of the funniest and most down to earth people I have ever had the pleasure to work with. 5 stars for sure!" Model Sara Buffington
" I've worked with many photographers but Ricky (TRD Photography) is definitely my favorite. I have done MULTIPLE shoots with him, all with different "themes", and have loved every single one of them. He's one of the funnest photographers to work with and he makes me VERY comfortable. Most of the times I've worked with him he would brin...g the thought of what he wanted to do to the table wardrobe wise and theme wise, then let me freelance in front of the camera posing however I want, sometimes throwing an idea here in there. I love that! He doesn't push anything on me which is different from all the other photographers I've worked with and I love how I can have a conversation with him while shooting. I recommend him to ALL models. His work will make your portfolio improve greatly!!" Model Chelsea Rhea Shultz
" To start with, Ricky is great to work with. He's patient, professional, treats a lady like a lady, and he sends edits to you quickly. After modeling since '04, I've seen a lot of G.W.C's (Guy/Girl with Camera). Ricky is not one of them. He has a vision, and he pushes himself to learn and grow as an artist. Few individuals do that (on both sides of the lens). Kudos to Ricky!" Model Jamie LaShell
" Ricky has very important qualities that are important in creating great images. First off he always is professional, down to earth, patient, and easy going which all helps make the model at ease. Secondly, Ricky takes his work to heart and it shows in his photos. I would recommend Ricky for any photography needs! You will be happy with your images!" Model Sandy Sherif
