I am a professional photographer whose photographic career has been spent specializing in wedding, sports, product and portraiture. That being said, I very much consider myself an artist first and foremost. My life has revolved around art since I was 16, as a painter and sculptor then as a photographer. I am active in my area's photographic scene as a workshop leader, art show judge and photography and photoshop instructor in our local school system.
I am here to expand my creative horizons with models who WANT to be photographed. I respect modeling as an art form and creative outlet. If you want to create some beautiful imges with me contact me. I will consider TF shoots, but I am also willing to pay for your time if its a subject I need for my portfolio. I am selective in who I work with and it is NOT always the next "Victoria's Secret" model I'm looking for. Different is more interesting to me than perfect.
I am on time ready to shoot on schedule, and I expect the same from models. Everybody has emergencies, but cancellations the day of a scheduled shoot or No-show models do not get a second chance, (but they DO earn a listing in my personal "hall of Shame", see below).
I am not looking for a girlfriend or a peepshow. Most shoots are costume shoots, some more revealing than others.
What I want to shoot now:
Pinups: I love the look and the art and need practice.
Cosplay: I love anyone passionate about costuming.
Steampunk: I'm building a new portfolio and have a great collecton of props and wardrobe.
Theatre and Dance: Anything with a costume
PAID SHOOT: I'll provide you 1 retouched image of my choice for download, along with our agreed fee.
TF: we agree on a number before the shoot. Usually 2 per look, Print or file, you may select the frames after edit.
I will never provide an entire shoot. I have an interest in only showing my best work and as a photographer I need to maintain control on what gets out into the world with my name on it.
Escorts: Strongly encouraged. However, no boyfriends, fiances or husbands on set. This is not because I'm a jerk. I just know they tend to get in the way of the creative process by trying to push the shoot too far in one direction or the other...a convent or a porn set...neither of which interest me.
There is always a paid hair dresser and a make-up artist on set in all my shoots.
Tattoos: Love 'em.
Studio: Have one. It's my preferred workspace, but if you know of a great location or own a working dirigible, or better yet, a tank, we can talk.
Style: I will promise to deliver exactly what you want...IF you are paying ME.
otherwise, we have to collaborate and agree on what our mutual goals are for the shoot. We will always have a shoot plan before the lights go on. My personal goal... everybody walks away happy!
Time: For the right project, I will shoot all day.... but understand I'm doing this for fun/art. I usually keep these shoots to between two and three hours. I can spot a tired model easily, as can most photographers. I want your best on set, and I'll give you mine.
I'm a nice guy and drama free! If you're interested in working with me, message me!
