*** I have decided to move to California to further my movie director career in 10-12 months. So to all the east coast models, this is your last chance to shoot with me!
****** Also it has come to my attention, lately there has been a lot of unprofessional (fake?) MM profiles on here posted said you want to work, but after a few inquiries you either do not answer your emails anymore or totally forgot you have a profile here. I do provide paid gigs but I will only select great talents who is hungry. Please do not waste our time, or yours.
I have been shooting for 20 years off and on, my first ever camera was a Nikon FE2 given to me from my grandfather. I now have 2 Canon 5Ds, several 1080HD video cam, a studio setup in a lakefront house, in Orlando Florida. I have been dabbling in landscape, weddings, infrared red, portraits and now mainly in fashion and glamour. I am also a member of NAPP( National Association of Photoshop Professionals). I sometimes shoot on assignments for various glamour/fashion magazines. My grandfather once said, "To be a great photographer, you must be a student of illumination. To be great at illumination, you must be a master of the Lights." Took me 3 years to figure out what he meant. To me, photo is the result of using technology to capture the beauty in that right moment of time.
I have more than 800,000 of my own photos in my photobank, however I don't post a lot of here because of the blatant thief mostly from other photographers or retouchers.
Models if you want something different and some new angles in your modeling portfolio, feel free to contact me. My sessions are always fun and exciting. I tend to use very vibrant and refreshing colors in my style. Oh and I don't overdone on photoshop so as to give the model a plastic barbie doll look--- I always believe humans are perfect with some flaws.
I also own some Canon HD video cam and shooting some short film and will venture into music video. If you have a project in mind, let work together!
My next project is the RED camera( the same camera they used to shoot Michael Jackson's final "This is It"), getting into HD video shooting future ad commercials and movies.
Grasshopper once said:
"Just because you can push a button, doesn't make you a good photographer"
"You can't call yourselves a photoshop wizard(or guru) when you are only using illegally-downloaded plug ins. It's more like buying Magic for Dummies at a Harry Potter convention."
"I am an artist--- and my paint brush is the camera"
********** As of January 2012, I pay for great nude shoot in the Florida and Georgia area. I am not going to pay for non-nude shoot. I can fly to New York and my friend at the agency will give me a list of runway models who need new images for their port, and they don't charge me anything. ****************
******* I always appreciated comments and friend tags from models and fellow photographers. This is a sincere Thank you to you all. I might not reply right away because I have a full time job and sometimes I work 60 hours a week, I really apologize. ^.^ **********
