Some of my thoughts:
"I am a photographer, as such, I create photos, and shoot anything from a lobster bisque to supermodels, from promo of rappers to document events. What I don't know, I learn and rise to the challenge."
"I like fashion photography, because it documents the taste of time."
I am a photojournalist, portraitist, fashion and runway photographer in New York City. I was born and raised in Germany and live in NYC since 1992.
As early as age 11/12, my interest in photography was awakened. As a 15 years old student, I did an internship at the photolab of the largest German television network ("ZDF", now the largest in Europe). Later, I worked in that lab part time and was heavily exposed to press photographers and photojournalists.
My first professional assignment ever was to cover the World Fair in Vancouver for a German stock and photo archive (out of business for years I presume), but my education and professional path took another direction, although photography, my true passion, always paralleled any other endeavor, until I finally took the step to live full time what I think I was created to do.
As a freelance photographer, I am working with different media outlets and companies, most in the fashion and entertainment industry.
Among others, I am the press photographer for BTE TV (Beauty Television and Entertainment), and on the production team as well as the house photographer for USA International Fashionshows and shoot regularly for FashionLedge.com and am the creative director and photographer for "New York Girl - Style & Beauty".
Fees for portfolio work for models and actors:
A packaged deal for models and actors is available. It includes multi hour, multi location and/or studio shoot (make up artist can be provided) for $750. Those shoots run usually 4 to 7 hours.
Financial arrangements can be made in certain circumstances. I will shoot for free if I like a project that is suggested to me.
If someone wants to utilize me for large scale commercial assignments, you can contact me directly, but the negotiations and booking will be handled by my manager/agent Marc Dlugoff, Esq.
I am also involved in the casting and production of various fashion shows, including the Champaign Fashion Brunch, Couture Fashionweek and other high fashion runway shows.
Feel free to inquire about those runway opportunities!
However you should be at least 5'8" and fit into dress sizes 0-4 to be considered. (Swimwear can be size 6)
If you inquired for a fashionshow, were accepted, scheduled and confirmed, yet you don't show up without notification. You don't need to bother asking for another chance, unless you had a VERY good reason!
A no-show at a fashionshow causes logistic problems, so, be professional!
