Our work is tasteful we photograph primarily weddings, seniors, families, children and fashion. We are always looking for young talent to pose for our classes or ads that we shoot.
We DO NOT photograph nudes and will NEVER object to having you bring an escort with you as long as they are willing to help out when asked and are not a distraction while photographing. We regularly work on magazine projects and are always looking for amazing talent and when we find someone that we love working with we use them for projects regularly. We define "love working with" as easy and quick communication, shows up on time for shoots and pre-shoot meetings, NO DRAMA, takes direction well and has a great sense of humor.
TFP projects are very limited and must be mutually beneficial! We are a FULL time commercial studio location so we have a business to run, we aren't working out of our home or doing this as a hobby and trying to develop a portfolio. Our studio has been open for 15 years now and our photographers have been in the business for over 20 years now so any projects that we take on are treated in the utmost professional manner and we expect the same from the people that we work with. We have a TON of fun at all of our shoots but at the same time we work hard to produce the best possible images possible, so come ready to work hard and laugh a lot!
If you are interested in developing your portfolio then contact us for rates. We are happy to help you develop images for your portfolio that will bring you attention and that will work for all of your professional needs. We photograph for model agencies and when we find what we consider to be exceptional talent we refer that talent to the agencies we work with to help you find work. We make no money from doing this but we like to see amazing talent rewarded and we like to see the industry grow because the cream of the crop is pushed to the top!
If we contact you for a shoot you aren't part of a blanket reach out that we are doing trying to find models, it is because you have a very specific look that we think is perfect for a project that we are working on. So if we contact you and the communication back to us is not quick or professional we probably won't contact you again. Prompt and professional responses can often net you jobs in shoots that are getting published.
