My name is Mark Glaviano, and I am a New Orleans-based photographer.
I am accepting very few TF* requests at this time; however, unique concepts/ideas/looks that are mutually beneficial to our portfolios will always be considered. I am available weekdays or weekends. Please message me for rates.
Conceptually, I am very into the beauty and decay motif, and thus the urban/industrial ruins of New Orleans have become my personal studio space for the last year. My technique varies, though in keeping with my photographic roots, I often employ a mixture of natural ambient light and shallow focus to create what I feel is a sensual blend of intimacy and voyeurism. As my talents have evolved, I have begun incorporating studio/artificial light sources into my location work to enhance its cinematic qualities.
Each shoot lasts several hours, and includes 2 or 3 wardrobe changes. Experimentation with location, pose, color, lighting and perspective are all part of my method, so each shoot tends to be a unique experience for both my models and myself. Your trust and comfort level with me are of utmost importance in creating great work, so feel free to bring up any questions or concerns you may have.
At the end of every shoot, the model with be given a DVD of high-res selects from the shoot including several retouches. I will also custom retouch up to 15 more photos from the shoot chosen by the model via email correspondence in the days following the shoot, as well as any artist retouches I may produce for my own portfolio.
I look forward to creating some killer work with you.
