!! NO DRIVE-BY FR'S !! NO GWC !!! NO SOLICITATION TAGS!! NO LAST MINUTE SHOOT OFFERS!!...I work a FT job six days a week + have a family, so realize I'm not available to drop everything at a moments notice because you're in town. Don't take it personal but that's called LIFE. You could be the world's greatest photographer but it ain't happening without a proper heads-up & COMMUNICATION! ☮ Thanks!

I have 4 well placed tattoos. NO body piercings. NO fake boobs/lips/or butt implants! What You See Is What You Get!!
CONTACT & BOOKING: I require the following be provided with *FULL* project details:
1. Details of what you're looking to shoot/concepts.
2. Length + location of a shoot.
3. Link to your website/portfolio or other special works.
4. If HMUA and/or wardrobe is provided.
SUBMISSIONS WILL ONLY BE RESPONDED TO IF PROFESSIONAL NATURE AND AGAIN, CONTAIN *FULL* PROJECT DETAILS. TIME IS VALUABLE & PRECIOUS and I DON'T LIKE WASTING EITHER FIELDING THROUGH THE LESS THAN GENUINE. IF YOU CANNOT PROVIDE STANDARD INDUSTRY INFO, THEN OUR COMMUNICATION ENDS AT HELLO.
Simple as that.
PAID ASSIGNMENTS ONLY! Rates on request.
RATES/DEPOSITS/CANCELLATION POLICY: My rates are very reasonable & therefore NON-NEGOTIABLE. I require a $150.00 deposit via PayPal at the time of booking. I don't accept any other form of payment, so don't ask. Dates are not locked until the FULL deposit is received...For ALL shoots (Local or Not): Cancellation less than 7 days = 50% of our agreed shoot. Cancellation within 48 hours = 100% of our agreed shoot; NO exceptions!!! If you book a shoot with me, you are agreeing to & legally contracting for PAID work! I'm a consummate professional taking this very seriously working at the professional level which means I rely on this as income not as a hobby or a springboard platform into something else...Thanks for your respect & understanding!
A signed release (provided by you) will be mailed to you AFTER I've received an agreed number of images from each look achieved on shoot. Due to a couple unscrupulous "professionals", I've learned that spoken words hold very little value these days unfortunately and I will not work with you unless you can adhere to a basic code of ethics...
I do NOT shoot explicit nudes, however *tastefully* executed FULLY IMPLIED is fine.
I also do *very selective* Fine Art projects w/the right photographer. I simply will not do spread leg poses. So do not ask! For these bookings, I will also require an addendum to our contract specifically stating that you understand such shots and poses will not be taken or used.
BOUNDARIES: A professional rapport is essential and key to any collaboration but so is a personal one. Upfront: I view what we do as artistic expression first and foremost and feeding off each others creative energy is vital to producing powerful imagery. I'm the nicest person you'll ever meet, open, attentive, and laidback. But DO NOT mistake my kindness for stupidity! I put all of myself into developing a sincere, yet professional rapport with everyone I work with and I treat everyone the same as I would like to be treated. I don't care for DIVA behavior in front of, or behind the lens. This attitude has afforded me repeat work and many ongoing collaborations. Unfortunately, in this industry you will have, as with any, the wolves. I've found that my friendly demeanor and comfort level can send mixed messages, so let me be perfectly clear: Whether I'm shooting with you for the first time or the twentieth: DO NOT ever ask me to spread my legs! This is deeply offensive to me, Crass AND negative! I work extremely hard and love what I do, but I'm not here to be viewed as a plaything, to hang out/chitchat on the phone/webcam, or in any fashion be your entertainment! In short, I don't gel well or work with anyone who can't maintain a semblance of basic mutual courtesy & common decency.
TRAVEL: I have a well-used passport and am always willing to travel providing either my reasonable full Day rate is covered -OR- an exchange of flights, hotel, transportation, and a minimum of 2 hours booked at my normal rate. I'm not looking for 5 star accommodations, any cheap hotel is fine as long as it is clean & safe!!
Be aware---I research ALL offers, persons, websites, and contacts for legitimacy & safety. I don't respond to those who use unprofessional modes of contact/requests/or vulgarity in any communication. I've a ZERO TOLERANCE policy for those with nefarious intentions! Proceed down this avenue at your own peril!!
SPAMMERS TAKE NOTE: YOU WILL BE BLOCKED & FLAGGED FOR MM REVIEW.
REGARDING TF: I don't do TF unless you're a ☆ROCKSTAR☆ photographer with a killer port or a dedicated team to make it happen, reputable magazines, guaranteed publication, OR FOR TARES!! Sorry but we can make pretty pictures all day, unfortunately they won't pay the bills or put gas in the car. Imagine if we all worked for free!
AMATEURS: I will shoot with new photographers so long as you have a style that appeals to me or can up my port with something new. I'll even help with lighting and do my own styling/HMUA so we can keep costs at a minimum. So don't hesitate to hit me up!
