About MePlease read all the information in my bio, it is relevant and useful. If you can make it all the way through and still want to collaborate, we've gotten a lot of the preamble discussion out of the way and can start talking about our mutual interests and shoot concepts ASAP. The fact you'll read that much li'l ol' me will already have started winning me over bigtime.
Add my page(s) on Facebook, and if you're really brave, my personal wall. If you add me and *really* talk about what you want to shoot or pose for, I will most certainly make the effort to get a collaboration started. I also have a backlog of ideas in waiting and I need you to help me make them work!
* To see my complete portfolio of visual work, music and video, add me and browse my work on these socials:
http://www.facebook.com/ObjectorSnark.VAC —Visual art & links to music & video--the blue hotlink on my byline will take you there. Currently my band page is the front tab, but the photo albums are all there on another tab and are sorted by era and genre.
http://www.youtube.com/user/ObjectorSnark —Philomusia Studios; experiments in New Media. Basically, video scored to music. Yes, that's what I meant.
http://www.reverbnation.com/objectorsnark —My music & composition page. I notice a number of models on MM are also musicians, songwriters or singers. Have a listen to this and my RN page for Alien Pep Squad and see if you're simpatico with that sort of thing; I'm very open to try music collaboration, or if you're simply looking for a designer for your album art and promo material. I *love* doing album art and designing SWAG!
http://www.twitter.com/objectorsnark —For when I try to be clever in 140 characters or less; also links to what I'm doing/geeking/reading over on the other socials. It's quite a useful force-multiplier.
http://www.tumblr.com/objectorsnark —Yup, got a tumblr too. Always nice to follow back models with more port to show than a basic MM account will permit. I should heed that advice myself, but I mainly reblog interesting articles and artwork right now to provide an idea pool for future projects. Aaaaaand...
http://www.instagram.com/objectorsnark —One of these too. Well two actually, but I *really* need to snap to and put more work up on this one. I usually follow back.
There's a few other sites out there too, but jeez—if you're THAT much of a completist, you know Google is your friend, right? ;-)
* Oh...and I have two other MM accounts that focus primarily on model photography, since that's what most of us are mainly here to do.:
Philomusia Studios #2356181 is an arts-collective helmed by me and my wife #2494530 and includes whomever else we collaborate with on projects at the time. We have multiple eyes, but a common vision; come friend us and comment! Typically, if you model for us, you are considered a collaborator because we like to work on ideas generated by all team members involved a shoot.
OSVAC #3028859 is an account I created specifically for my digital artwork, where I meld the genres of photography, collage, and painting into large (sometimes huge) scapes of color and figure that sometimes blur the realm of pure abstract with human form.
Like many other creatives in the NOLA area, I've done a lot of film work—over 32 TV & film productions in the last three years. So far, my best facetime has been as the featured fiddle player in the wedding and barn dance scenes of "Bonnie & Clyde" (2013). I've met a few MMers on set, and it's certainly a good place to introduce yourself and take advantage of the *looong* day to fit in bits of f2f conversation about any ideas you think we might work on. Promise I won't stalk you and try to talk your ears off all day like some recurring characters we may have encountered—I'm usually too tired and focused on hitting marks and *not* getting hit by hot points for that kind of nonsense. BUT, if we happen to strike up a good chat during the day, I'm not going to slip the earbuds in and tune you out in holding for no reason either, because I've found having a good running conversation with a cluster of other BG is hands-down THE best way of keeping the energy up all day. However if you're crew, then it'll likely be some other time off set. Professionalism!
* In the broadest definition, I'm a multimedia artist; any material out of which a work of art might be wrought, I'll find a way. I'm a painter and sculptor and New Media producer. I'd like to work with models of all ages, body-types and ethnicities, though I'm primarily interested in 'art models.' Natural physique (no silicone, collagen, or botox), highly preferred but not a dealbreaker. Petite, plus-size, mature, alt-, beginning amateur exploring a new path of empowerment—all are appreciated, but broadminded, witty, and intellectually curious are what's *vital*. I'm very amenable to collaborative work with a model developing her ideas for hire or portfolio building; reasonable rates and trades are no problem at all.
Of course, you get edited pics of our photo session, usu. around five per look, and/or complete set of images from the session, since you will get to choose which ones you want edits of and which ones you don't want published. Number varies with level of compensation agreed on, or if I just like a few more so damn much that it's just pure joy to bump your million-dollar smile up to a mil-five. I can work anywhere from two minutes to enlarge and format shots from the can) to two months (for large-file multilayered digital paintings) on an individual image, depending on what it needs to be. I (and/or Philomusia Studios) retain license and sole right to edit my/our photographs for publication or portfolio. You *must* ask permission for any outside retouch or manipulation and ALWAYS include credit where applicable, but if we negotiate a full in-trade partnership over raw images and editing rights beforehand, then that's another thing.
Some photos I find paintings in, either the moment the shutter releases or somewhere further down the line during editing. If I paint you with pigment on panel instead of pixels on Photoshop, at the very least you'll get a web-ready digital image of the painting suitable for your port.
I kick back 15% of my back-end profit to the model(s) for brokering the sale of any painting she poses for; 25% discount off my standard painter rate if the model herself is the purchaser.
I want my art to be owned by other people, not collecting dust on my shelving racks, and I certainly consider it high compliment if the owner is the one who sat for that meaningful moment in my lens or panel or sculpture. So yes, I appreciate commissions and can be really sweet on discounts (or TRADE for music or art supplies!) if you're looking to commission large-scale work for yourself and have something like a concert-level flute or mixing board you're ready to pass along, I'm gonna be all OVER that! If you've got stuff, I *love* stuff! If you just have money, well, I'm probably just gonna go out and buy some stuff with it.
