I've been away for a while. Long story short... I tried making photography my full time job and because I wasn't fully prepared; it became too much of a "Job". I gave it up completely.
Now...3 years later, I'm back and ready to go. Passion and creativity are high! I'm doing things different this time. This time I'm doing what I love simply because I love to do it. If I never make a penny, that's ok. If at some point someone wishes to pay me for doing what I love, well, that's a bonus.
I haven't been completely idle the past 3 years. I've gotten tons of education on what it takes to be a model photographer AND what it takes to be a model. I'm ready to put that education into practice. The biggest and most important thing I've learned about the modeling industry is it's all about building relationships. Being successful is a group effort. The photographer needs the model; the model needs the photographer; and you both need the MUA, the stylist, the photoshop person, etc.. It's about all these people building great relationships and getting the best out of each other. So lets get busy and create some great relationships and then create some amazing images.
Any models out there stuck or unsure what steps to take or which direction to go; feel free to contact me, I'd be happy to help.
I'm currently working on getting my website back up and running and will post the link soon.
