Cherilyn Fontaine, also known as Sweet Cheri. Transgendered Fetish Model and Actress living in Albany, New York. Seeking serious photographers who have a passion for what they do and feel that art and expression is more than simple click and shoot...BTW, just because you are a troubled soul and a deep thinker does NOT necessarily make you an artist.
FEATURED in REALLY GREAT MAGAZINE VOLUME 2 ISSUE 1
NOTHING PERSONAL BUT:
I am ONLY
willing to accept TFP/TFCD if it will benefit me as well. Trade means I am not only there to shoot stuff for you but stuff that I will be able to use likewise, otherwise you can pay me for my time and travel.
With regard to TF shoots:
Unless agreed upon in advance, I expect all of my shots the same day otherwise I expect to be paid since I never expect my shots to be returned. So unless you are paying to capture it, I want what comes off the camera with no excuses and no edits (NOT
all photographers can or should use photoshop - most claim to but some of them really should leave that stuff to the pros). Personally I use very little post work on anything you will see in my portfolio because I want the next photographer to see exactly what will be showing up at their studio, not just a cartoon rendition of my likeness (unless that's the aim of the pic).
ON THE BRIGHT SIDE:
When I set up a shoot, I come to shoot. You will not get an excuse or someone confused but rather someone who has already communicated their ideas and has everything well planned out in advance.
I am 100% DRAMA-FREE (no texting, no talking on cell phone, no escorts, NO BS, NO Diva attitude)
I am NOT a difficult person to work with, I LOVE being in front of the camera and I know how to make love to the lens so we both get the shots we are after.
So if you "have a great project" or "a concept" that you have been dying to shoot, let's create something, but if it is not something I feel will benefit me, be prepared to hear my rates if you are contacting me and please do not take offense.
I am professional and expect professional in return.
I am also VERY comfortable shooting nude...VERY comfortable, but don't expect me to drop'em without $ on the table. Very few exceptions are made regarding this.
So with that said, if you have a concept that you feel I will be a nice fit in and you live in the Tri-State area (NY, NJ, CT) or New England, please feel free to shout at me and let's create some fantastic art!
