I'm a professional based in Scotland but working internationally.
My main photographic interest is people but I can turn my camera to other challenges. My MM membership enables me to network with Models, MUAs and other Photographers for business. But I'm still very happy to do serious TFP work when time and circumstances allow it.
My FRIENDS should be a network of potential collaborators rather than those building a big list for the sake of it.
So if you get a FR from me it means I think we may do some work together in the future and I would ask that Friend Requests to me are made on the same basis. I visit my Friends Portfolios regularly and take a real interest in their work.
Although I will consider any subject, I prefer to avoid the macabre or anything with blood in it. Its just not my thing. What I like is placing people in space and light to get interesting results.
I involve models fully in the creative process ... having a second camera and brain is really useful and I value having a 'second opinion'!
