I am a semi professional / amateur photographer who shoots Glamour, Pinup, and Boudoir. I enjoy making people look beautiful, and what better way is there than doing portraiture in these genres? The use of props and wardrobe also allows a great deal of creativity.
I have limited time to shoot so planning and being on time is important to me. I do shoot TF work, but it has to be mutually beneficial. In most cases, I pay reasonable fees to models so I can get exactly what I need for a given concept.
I shoot on location, at a co-op studio in Pensacola, and at my house in Navarre. Depending on the shoot, I will sometimes hire a MUA to get everything just right. I am willing to travel within the panhandle for the right shoot.
If you like my work and would like to shoot with me sometime. Please feel free to contact me. I look forward to hearing from you and hopefully working together.
A Note on TF and Paid shoots... What to expect:
TF = Time For _______ (fill in the blank)
I enjoy working with new models, and experienced models in a mutually beneficial environment. If you are a new or experienced model who wants to put together a concept, do a shoot for submission to a magazine or on-line media, or just want to shoot and make some great images, I am always open to ideas. I will graciously share the effort with you, and ask for your feedback on the images you like best. I normally provide 12 or more retouched images from each shoot.
Paid = You are my employee
As I stated above, I do not mind paying reasonable fees for models. I do paid shoots about 90% of the time. I do this because I want models who are professional, confident, and accustomed to being in front of the camera. My goal in photography is to shoot images that I love, and just like any passion there are always expenses to chase the dream. I tend to provide 2 - 3 edited images to the model for a paid shoot.
If you are paid, I may provide these for you to use in your portfolio, but it is not an entitlement of paid work. I have hired you as an employee and you have been paid for your services as a model. I am sharing the product of our efforts as a perk. Sorry if it sounds gruff, but I have found that more and more paid models from MM have an expectation that they are entitled to images from the shoot for various purposes. If you wish to share the product, then please insure we come to an agreement prior to the shoot.
