I do couture style portraits and street photography.
Two things that make a good photograph; Human interest, and an anomaly.
Here's a little kitten prancing video that I did with the lovely Bette Machete (#2524760)
This is me in action.
Here's space in my attic and garage that I want to shoot in. If you're interested in this, let me know. http://flic.kr/s/aHsjPBTaTJ
What you can expect from me:
Professionalism. I am professional in my work and my demeanor.
I will work with you to create the best images possible.
I will treat you with respect.
I will send you images for your portfolio.
I will not sell your images to any third party licensees (stock) nor will your images appear in any third party advertisements unless you and I have worked out a mutually agreeable arrangement.
What I expect from you:
Enthusiasm and patience.
Respect and professionalism.
Please, please, please be on time. No... be early.
The photographs I send you are totally useable for self promotion and portfolio use. (Please credit me and/or tag me)
Please do not manipulate my photos, or allow anyone else to edit them.
No third party sales can happen without a mutually agreed upon arrangement with the photographer. (as above)
Cute and sexy is great, but sleazy is not going to be something I ask.
Implied or artistic nudes are considered if you, as model are specifically seeking them, and will be discussed well in advance of a scheduled shoot, and run-on sentences are perfectly acceptable in my profile because I paid my dues and graduated college.
What to bring:
Wardrobe: Jeans, dresses, skirts / tops and plenty of stuff for headshots. Also remember shoes, belts and accessories. You should have fingernails (and often toenails) done, but please don't feel you have to spend a fortune on that stuff... just nice. Bring makeup for touchups, hair sprays, hair ties for putting it up, and powder.
Comfortable shoes to walk in, especially if we are doing a location shoot.
Please be aware that hairbands on your wrist and flip-flops do not lend to a good photograph. Bare feet are preferred to bad shoes.
Models will be asked to sign a model release.
Models under 18, I require a parent or guardian to be at the shoot to sign the model release.
All photos will be post-processed by me.
I will provide you with photos via email, or on disk.
I have package pricing available.
I'm limiting TF* shoots to models who will expand my portfolio.
I'll shoot TF* for models I've worked with already.
I'll shoot TF* if we've already agreed or discussed TF* but haven't shot yet.
I'll shoot TF* if you've been published.
I'll shoot TF* if I'm soliciting models for a specific concept I want to shoot.
I've paid models for specific concepts I needed to get. That is an exception, and not the rule. I'll pay for top-shelf talent. If you're an experienced model, or a professional model who is making a living at this, we can negotiate terms.
I need MUAs! I need MUAs! Friend me/Message me.

"As a mother of a teenager I would recommend george as a photographer. The shoot he did with my daughter was amazing. He made her feel comfortable. She was able to be herself and have fun. The images he captured of her were perfect. I would love for them to shoot again sometime. There are alot of photographers out there..... he is one of the good ones by far!"

Fine art influences...

Looking for natural, environmental, energetic, and candid style. Nothing too static.
