Be Confident. Be Beautiful. Be You.
**** Reasonable rates for new models. Message me for prices & special deals. ****
I DO NOT PAY MODELS TO SHOOT. UNLESS YOU ARE AN ESTABLISHED MODEL WITH A SOLID INDUSTRY RECORD, DO NOT ASK. THANK YOU.
POTENTIAL MODELS, IF INTERESTED IN A FREE TEST SHOOT FOR MAGAZINE PUBLICATION OR PROMO COMPANY, JUST ASK, BUT PLEASE READ WHAT'S ON MY HOMEPAGE FIRST. MESSAGE ME WITH ANY QUESTIONS AFTER. I'M A PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER AND I SIMPLY WANT TO WORK WITH RELIABLE PEOPLE OF ANY EXPERIENCE LEVEL WHO VALUE TIME. I AM A VERY EASY PERSON TO WORK WITH AND LOTS OF FUN, BUT UNDERSTAND I AM SERIOUS ABOUT THE INDUSTRY AND MY CAREER. I'M NOT HERE TO WASTE TIME. THANK YOU FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING
****RETOUCHERS, DO NOT CONTACT ME REGARDING YOUR WORK. I EDIT & RETOUCH MY OWN PHOTOS AND HAVE NO NEED OF YOUR SERVICES.****
I’m a very experienced pro photographer and promo model scout (Platinum Promotions, Inc.) that's been on the scene for some time now. I shoot professionally as well as for the love of taking pictures. I'm very easy to work w/ and have a great sense of humor. You either like my style of work and want to be a part of it, or you don't. If you like my work, contact me, if not, move along. I like all styles of photography but my main focus right now is glamour (bikini, lingerie, sexy casual, high fashion & club wear).
FREE TEST SHOOT FOR IMAGES - I do not do “Trade For” shoots, meaning the images you get are limited. I do unpaid Test Shoots for serious magazine publication. Although I like shooting other genres, I shoot primarily Glamour w/ a sexy edge for Test Shoots. If you want to do a fashion photo shoot, expect to pay me since that is NOT my main focus. I AM VERY SELECTIVE WHO I GIVE MY SERVICES FREE TO. If I contact you and offer you a chance to shoot with me, I recommend you take it, because I won’t ask twice. I simply don't have time for indecisive, unreliable, wanna-be models who say they are serious, yet their actions speak otherwise. Glamour is for models who want to project confidence and gain exposure. No egotistical people, please! An ego is the worst thing you can have in modeling. You are no better, or no worse than anyone else. You are replaceable. There are many other models with similar looks and features you have who are eager to shoot. Your uniqueness is your attitude. This means you should be professional & enjoyable to work with.
COMPENSATION - I do not pay to shoot models unless I am paid by a company. I respect your job but I am also working hard on my end giving you high quality work that gets you noticed. My rates are reasonable especially for the time and effort I put into my shoots. If you flake on me last minute we will NEVER work together again and will only mean a bad review for you. You will also be required to sign a release form before shooting. NO EXCEPTIONS. As for Test Shoots, you will receive your images in a timely manner in accordance w/ my shooting guidelines. Typical 7-10, fully-edited images for your portfolio.
NEW MODELS - Learn to market yourself. If you do not respond to messages, you are making a negative impression on yourself w/ photographers. Word travels fast in the industry. A simple reply takes only a few minutes and will leave a good impression plus show courtesy. Modeling can help you build your confidence & self-esteem, empowering you. It can give you the courage to be the person you want to be, despite lack of support from people you may know.
Paying Clients: WHY YOU SHOULD HIRE ME - Most so-called photo shoots are amateurs with no idea how the industry works, pose a model, etc. Lots of GWC (Guys With Cameras) simply want to take pictures to get close to women and they show no interest for quality work. There are also many females who shoot just to show their family & friends they model but have no intention to pursue it seriously. Photography & modeling take dedication, talent & skills. Shooting w/ me, you’ll become a better model.
Understand I am a professional photographer and am not interested in anything else other than delivering great work. In most cases, I would expect to be paid for my services, unless it's a free test shoot. It seems that when it comes to their portfolios, most models would rather shoot with someone who is just good rather than spend a few dollars on photos that are actually worth it. My rates are very, very reasonable and the images you will receive will definitely be a big plus to your portfolio. Invest in yourself. The benefits will be well worth it.
PROFESSIONAL MODELS - If you are a popular model w/ a successful Facebook/Twitter page with tens of thousands of followers, I will seriously consider a mutual unpaid Test Shoot for promotional purposes. Otherwise, I expect to be paid for my services.
INDUSTRY PROS - I will work with industry High Fashion Designers, Wardrobe Stylist, Underwear Designers, Swimsuit Designers and Professional MUA's who will benefit my portfolio.
