Other photos on MM - http://www.modelmayhem.com/list/319642
Welcome everyone. I enjoy photography and have been shooting for several years. I mainly do it these days as a hobby in which I shoot specific ideas that spark my interest. I do this as a sideline. Right now I'm working on building up the male side of my portfolio. I do not frequent MM on a day to day basis. The best way to get in touch with me is on facebook. The Link is at the top of the page. My average shooting is about once a week.
A little info on me. I'm a very simple photographer. I'm extremely laid back and like to laugh a lot. In fact most laugh at me for some of the crazy things I say when I'm getting great shots. If I'm quite and not making a fool of myself then something is not right. I do not come to a shoot with two truck loads of equipment. I use a camera and a light reflector in most cases. I prefer outdoor shoots therefore most will be outdoors. I do not have a mob of adoring fans there to assist. I actually prefer as small of a crowd as possible for both the models and my benefit. Usually it will be one assistant and myself. If you bring an escort then that will be my assistant. Please be aware that if you bring someone then they will work otherwise they don't need to be there. I welcome escorts if necessary, but ask that you not bring a close love interest. My time in the industry has shown that it can be a negative issue during a shoot. Bring a friend if you need someone. I welcome any potential model to check the references listed on my page. You are welcome to email any of them. I'm very confident that I will get a positive review.
Time to receive images - under 2 weeks fully posted edited. I usually give out no less than 10 images from the shoot and never give out the raw images.
A couple articles to read about internet modeling safety - http://www.modelinsider.com/content/articles/safety
Please be safe and create some wonderful art... (if a photographer is dead set that you not bring an escort, then be wary of them. Not that all of them are bad, but add up all the factors. Look at the work, ask for references! I have limitations to escorts, but never deny someone the right to feel comfortable.)
Expectations / Dos and Donts
1- Be on time. I can not stress this enough.
2- Make sure your wardrobe is ironed and neat. What good is a great photo with horrible looking clothes.
3- I NEVER PAY MODELS SO PLEASE DON'T ASK. I HAVE NEVER AND WILL NEVER PAY A MODEL. I ACTUALLY GET QUITE OFFENDED WHEN ASKED. IT ALSO SHOWS THAT YOU DIDN'T READ THE INFORMATION ON MY PAGE MEANING YOU AREN'T THAT INTERESTED.
4 - I do not shoot anyone under 18yrs old so don't ask, you are wasting your time. I also do not allow anyone under 18 to attend a shoot. This is out of respect to the models and legality. Models change on shoots, sometimes in open areas and I can not have a minor there.
5- I do not live in drama. I do not care what happened to you on another shoot. I do not care what this or that model said about you. I'm there to work and have a great time. I'm not there to trash people nor do I want to hear you trash people.
6- Nude work is mainly by model request. I would like to expand this area of my portfolio, but never pressure anyone. That is a personal decision. And the biggest recommendation I have for any model is DO NOT SHOOT SOMETHIING YOU WILL REGRET LATER! If you are not comfortable then don't do it.
7- If you have any hint of concern about our shoot then please contact my references. It is vital that you are 100% comfortable with me or the photos will not turn out properly. Just walk up on set like we are best friends and we will have a great time.
8- More to come...just a few above that I could think of.

"I haven't been modeling for a tremendously long time, but I have worked with several great photographers and, while I mean no disrespect to the others, Nick was hand-down the best. You can see how good his photos are by looking here or visiting his website, but the photos don't tell the whole story. Nick gave me tremendous direction and made me feel like I could produce great images even when I wasn't completely sure of myself. When I waited to see the photos after my other shoots, I hoped that they would turn out great. When I waited to see the photos from my shoot with Nick, I KNEW that they would turn out great, and they did. I recommend him highly and would jump at the chance to work with him again. -Derek Norton"
