About Me

______________________________________________________________

Two things that make a good photograph; Human interest, and an anomaly.

I do couture style portraits that tend to be editorial in style. I also do street photography.

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!"

My Background

A graduate of the Art Institute of Pittsburgh and Point Park University, Extensive experience as a technical illustrator and book cover artist. Full-time instructor of graphic design, art history, illustration, and intro to photography. I have experience working with local theater; plays, sets, actors, lighting and sound.  I can appreciate models with talent in the arts, theater, music and dance.

I'm looking to step up the creativity in my photo-shoots soon. I want to work with more theme-related concepts, costumes, jewelry, makeup and interesting lighting.   

Partial wish-list of locations and theme. (some of which I have no access to)...
Warehouses, abandoned firehouse.
Airplane hanger
Railroad freight car
Old ships and boats, dockyard
Cathedral
Abandoned hospital, schoolhouse.
Abandoned amusement park

Some of my inspirations include but are not limited to...
Alfred Hitchcock movies
Coen Brothers movies
Lewis Carroll literature. (Alice, Looking Glass, Jabberwocky)
Peculiar interpretation of some classic jokes (chicken crossing the road, knock knock, etc.)
fairy tales (Grims, Old Disney)
Mystery
Essence
Sublime/Biblical/Transcendental/Transubstantiated
Water and wet clothes/wet hair
Theater or Dance
Music
Classic movies
Period/Retro (20s, 30s, 40, 50s)

Fine art influences...
Maxfield Parrish
Edward Hopper
Classical Antiquity (Egypt, Greece, Rome)
Carrivaggio
Bernini
Boticelli
Degas
Magritte
Pre-Raphaelites
Dali
Warhol

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