Please read my ENTIRE profile before messaging, tagging/commenting on my profile. Many questions I've provided answers for within my profile. I didn't write all of the info below for S&G's giving everyone a fair chance to know as much as possible before contacting me.

Capturing natural beauty goes beyond what the eyes see and deeper than personal expression

Mission Statement
To maintain an environment of endless creative possibilities through unique
imagery while redefining the meaning of true natural beauty, self expression and the discovery of the vivid dynamic of each model’s personality. To always work within the models best interests with genuine intent of a supportive environment based on each model's uniqueness building a pathway to a positive future.

I've had an interest in photography since childhood and currently I am open to doing most styles since a lot of the models I work with have different looks and styles including alternative models that are doing punk, gothic and cosplay. I am open to many different styles since I believe that creativity is too dynamic to limit to any one style or medium of creativity and always seek out new avenues of creative outlet. When it comes to Artistic Nudity I do those rarely since I am VERY strict when it comes to concerns of maintaining tasteful looks and compositions. I do have separate release form specifically for Artistic Nudity shoot(s) which must be signed to clarify all conditions before starting. I also don't do artistic nudity with anyone on a first shoot so please don't ask if I haven't worked with you already since it requires a certain level of trust and comfort between photographer and model. I will not do a nude shoot without knowing the person first since mutual trust is involved before I will move forward. If it is discussed, will only be done AFTER reasonable level of trust and comfort can be established well in advance to see if our rapport is on the right level before initiating artistic nude shoots. Since I am making this clear in my profile for everyone read, its expected that all models honor these conditions since I also honor reasonable requests with each model that I work with.

Work Style
Generally speaking, my overall style can be described as permissive autocrat with a focus on being easy going and all of my shoots are about having as much fun as possible while staying on task to get the shots needed/wanted. From my perspective, the more fun and relaxing the environment the better the pictures turn out. Though shoots take some degree of seriousness and focus, this shouldn't inhibit finding the joy and fun in what we do. With this also comes an environment of mutual respect and reciprocity that works best when done with mutual effort. Since I work with alternative models often; any tattoos, piercings, body mods are fine. If its part of your personality/look, then you wont be asked to hide or remove them for any shoots and include them into any concept that we discuss. If it does become an issue for some reason, we can work something out of course (ie digital cover/removal) but generally it hasn't been a major issue that has stopped any work I've done with models. So if you already have, or will have, tattoos, piercings etc....they are a welcome addition to expressing your personality in any work we do together and always look forward to trading tattoo stories. Escorts are welcome on shoots if a model feels more comfortable having one and completely understand that at times, a model feels the need for whatever reason to have an escort. That said, keep in mind that shoots are still a work environment and if an escort adversely effects the work environment, that will reflect on the model just as much as their chosen escort.

Communication Information and Requests
DO NOT leave me tags/comments saying "let's work....check out my event...available on this date?" or any kind of variation.....if you would like to work, send me a private message and private message only which is the only way to get my attention to collaborate on anything.

Once we reached the level of communication that includes email and phone number exchange the following expectations of mutual respect is highly appreciated. For all email communication, if I do not respond right within 48 hours it is due to my current schedule and not a lack of interest in communicating with you in any way. If I don't respond within that time frame, a follow up email or txt/sms is welcome as long as not excessive in any manner including, but not limited to, 3+ emails txt/sms messages within a 24 hour period verifying if I received the original email and/or subsequent follow up messages.

For phone calls and txt/sms messages; generally speaking I do provide all models with my work number as primary means of communication. Although I do so to make communication with me more easily accessible, doing so is only to be done during normal business hours for all general questions, concerns or communication and after hours reserved only for instances such as late cancellations due to unforeseen circumstances. Normal business hours are being defined as 10am-6pm Mon-Saturday with no business hours for Sunday being available at this time except in notifications applicable to Monday (ie cancealltions, emergencies).

Any calls or txts after 6pm will be answered "at will" or upon availability with no calls or txt/sms  being accepted after 8pm unless late cancel do to emergency as described in late cancellation policy. Any non-emergency calls or txt/sms after 8pm may be subject to consultation fee for communicating on my personal time.

All non-emergency calls or txt/sms after 10pm will be billed the consultation due to explicit request to communication within reasonable hours and the sender will be billed the current hourly consultation rate.

Please keep in mind that if you call me from a blocked/private number that may show up as "unknown" or "private" on caller id...such calls are automatically directed to my voicemail system to safeguard against spammers, telemarketers or other such unwanted phone calls. So if you call me from such a number and you don't leave me a voicemail letting me know you're trying to reach me, don't expect to hear back from me...ever...because how do I know who you are and that you're trying to reach me?

Tags and/or Comments
Every MMer loves when someone leaves a comment on one of their pictures or a tag from a friend stopping by to say hi, but please DO NOT post links to your site, youtube, flickr or any other site in tags or comments on my page. If you want to promote yourself through links that can be done by 1. Your own profile on MM or other networking sites 2. Through MM advertising services. If you post a link on my profile without reading through my profile first, I will treat it as the same as I would my own site for advertising since I do offer ad spaces on my website and treat MM (and other profiles) the same way.

If you simply wish to just share a link to show other work you've done not on MM, something purely to view for S&G's, please do so by direct private message along with description of what I will be seeing at the link since I don't click unknown links for who knows who may be trying to send me to a malware site smile

For those who request, I am currently working TFP/CD on a limited basis right now but will do still do them occasionally. Paid assignments are taking priority at the moment of course. Any current or previously agreed TFP/CD arrangements will still be honored and always feel free to ask or discuss it with me if you wish to work on a TFP/CD basis and will respond as soon as I am able. Never be afraid to ask, I promise I wont bite your head off if you ask nicely (and respectfully) smile and will work out scheduling when I can be available for a TFP/CD shoot if/when current scheduling allows. If I cannot schedule a TFP/CD shoot(s) with you right away and if we seem to have mutual interest and compatibility, the next available space I have for any TFP/CD will be reserved for those who I sense that compatibility from as far as what can be agreed on and mutual interest. Any model who is currently serving in the military or is a veteran will always have priority for any tfp/cd requests.

Rates and Services
I NEVER have or NEVER will pay a company or group to be a photographer at an event or group shoot. There is never a reason for me to pay someone for me to show up and do all the work. Anyone who leaves me messages, tags or comments asking me to attend an event where photographers are asked to pay a "service fee" will be ignored deleted and blocked from contacting me again. There is no reason for me to pay others to be the photographer at group shoot or event when finding models that I wish to work with I can do on my own without having to pay such service fees at these events. If you do want to work with me for an event, be expected to pay me for my time not the other way around.

That said, my fees are based on hourly rates start with a two hour minimum for shoots/events. Day rates are also available for those who want to save money by pooling your money with a friend/fellow model(s). Portfolio rates are available which include photo shoot time, prints, custom qr codes, comp cards, photo cds and editing time. Currently shooting with a medium format camera giving you the best possible quality of your images in your portfolio.  Please contact me through messages (NOT tags/comments) for full list of rates.My rates are negotiable if you approach with an appropriate project or photo shoot request respectfully.

Cancellations and No Shows
Fair warning to my fellow MMers that I do charge a cancellation/no show fee for no shows and last minute cancellations for those who cancel/reschedule at the last minute multiple times. The only reason for this is due to immediate nature and need for each project currently working on therefore, if the model doesn't show up, time and/or expense has been wasted. Of course, emergencies or other such unexpected events are exceptions and clearly uncontrolled. This policy is for models who either flake, double/triple book or other such time mismanagement.

As long as their is a reasonable explanation why you cannot make it I will be as understanding as possible, but if it happens an excessive amount of times within a certain period then you will no longer be booked or requested for shoots and if you've received a contract from a client (i.e. designer, artist, etc), that contract will be cancelled and you will not be eligible to resign to a new one for that specific client or any others that I am working with.


References available upon request to those who ask for them. I no longer list credits here since several people have received harassing messages, creepers etc and out of consideration for their privacy I only send out references for those who have agreed for their information to be sent out.
