>>>>>> VERY NEWBIE FRIENDLY! <<<<<<
Thank you for visiting my profile
I have been active in photography for over 30 years.
Long ago enough to have learned on real film!
I enjoy meeting people, and have met many great people here on MM. I hope to meet and work with many more models, MUA's and fellow photographers.
I have published work in both daily newspapers in Vancouver ( The Province and the Vancouver Sun, including a VERY early photo of Playboy Playmate Pamela Anderson!
), and many of the regional papers, as well as postcards, calendars, and specialty magazines.
If I contact you, it means I am willing to trade my time and talent in exchange for your time and talent.
In other words, TF*
If you reply asking for pay, the offer expires.
If you have a really creative idea that appeals to me, I will certainly consider a TF* shoot.
(My various Lists below are a good start, especially the first 12 )
Otherwise, an hourly rate plus studio rental fee will apply.
I live in the Fraser Valley, and can travel to anywhere in the lower mainland.
I have access to a well equipped warehouse studio in north Langley (Walnut Grove area). (Richard, the studio owner, and I often co-shoot together. If I forget to mention that in discussions, remind me! We are not trying to pull a fast one on you!)
If you are downtown and don't drive, I can certainly pick you up at Scott Road Skytrain station, and return you there afterwards. I do this quite often.
I hate to have to bring up this, but I have been flaked on a few times over the years.
If you are not serious about your modeling, or don't intend to to keep appointments, I would prefer that we not waste each other's time.
This also applies to chronically late as well.
If I arrange studio time with the studio owner, it is a huge nuisance to him as well if we start and end late.
ESPECIALLY IF HE HAS ANOTHER BOOKING FOLLOWING !
If you are more than 1/2 hour late arriving, the day is lost.
I will require a phone number and an email. I will contact you the day before to confirm the shoot.
If you CAN keep an appointment, lets shoot!
I'm interested in hearing whatever you have in mind. I am genuinely interested in hearing YOUR ideas. This is a team effort between the two of us, so please feel free to make suggestions!
Also, have a look at all of the "Lists" of other people's photos (blue hotlinks below the Flag Counter and Model Credits) for ideas or themes that intrigue you. Please see my Castings Ads below, as well!
I look forward to hearing from you!
A few recent Model Mayhem referrals. (Thanks to all for the kind words!)
WOW DEAN!!! I am just amazed by how wonderful all those photos have turned out! you are an absolute amazing photographer!! I just love working with you! and cant wait to shoot again!
Hey Dean, I had an amazing time shooting with you again. you have great instruction and fantastic ideas! you are so very respectful towards me as I'm sure u are with every other model you work with.. I feel very comfortable shooting with you.. especially working in lingerie, you don't look at me in a bad way, you look through the camera and you look for the perfect shot.. as a lot of photographers have more sinister intentions. lol you are very professional and I cant wait to work with you again! you are an amazing photographer!

(Amazing, amazing photographer with great communication and magnificent instructional advice. Has a pretty amazing set up and studio with sufficient props and back drops, and makes excellent use of lighting. Other than special effects to glamor up some shots and make them really pop (For example, we did a mermaid shoot and the photos are turning out absolutely amazing, and because of the excellent use of lighting and the great photographic skill he possesses, its a much quicker process than most sloppy or amateurishly thrown together shoots.) He gives you both praise, advice and extremely constructive criticism which leaves you heading out of the shoot with full confidence, and I found we both had so much to learn and teach to and from each other that it was a mutually beneficial experience... not to mention the ideas we bounced off one another turned out to be so perfectly planned and executed, that we were happy with pretty much every single shot taken. (Which was quite a lot!) Really have nothing bad to say about this man and his company, He does an excellent job with the camera, as if it almost becomes and extension of himself. Would love to shoot again, probably one of the best, most understanding , flexible & passionately artistic human beings, as well as an extremely talented artist. Magnificent! Posting the newest photos from my shoot with him in the next few days.)
✰HIGHLY RECOMMENDED PHOTOGRAPHER✰
