Mayhem # 13494
Outdoor nude shoots will be limited over the summer. Mostly this is to help reduce editing backlog dating back to last September and to avoid burnout, but recent wet conditions and associated Zika Virus risk are also factors. I will also be limiting TF shoots until further notice as they take priority and disrupt backlog progress. Of course I will make exceptions for the right opportunities.
My modes of operation are "non-pushy" and "no outreach", meaning that I'm able to book all the shoots I can handle with models who contact me first, reliable regulars I'm blessed with, and Meetup.com events. I rarely initiate contact with models, and I don't attempt to continue a conversation at any stage in the face of silence.. So in short, if you want to shoot, you need to ask. That being said, I'm very bad at turning down those who do
I have begun sending verified credit requests, beginning with models I have know the longest or worked with most recently. If you have worked with me, please send some requests my way!
Over the past 3 years, I've enjoyed many fantastic outdoor shoots booked up to 6 weeks in advance with traveling models. While everything usually works out, I end up "stressing" as shoot day nears, especially during the November - April unpredictable season. In the event of bad conditions, I have 2 backup locations with covered areas which are nude-safe in selected spots. In general, there will more emphasis on outfits, sheer, topless, and "flashing". Agreed-to terms will not change should a backup location be used.
In the not-too-distant future, I will have my own home shooting space which will offer even more options.
I'm proud of my reputation for being a gentleman at shoots and not taking myself too seriously. I'm not one to talk models out of clothing or haggle down the fee, and any nudity will be discussed and agreed to in advance. Also, I'm cautious and conservative about where and when I will shoot nude, topless, or revealing clothing, so the model can rest assured that the locations we use should be mostly issue-free. In general, I only do outdoor nude shoots on weekdays or on weekend mornings.
Image editing backlog is always a challenge, and to keep things fair, highest priority is given to TF shoots. Models I shoot with individually and at TF group shoots will always receive a full shoot Dropbox preview the same day and are encouraged to assist in image selection. Previews and selection opportunity are typically not provided for paid group shoots unless the model expresses interest.

Model Mayhem has been the best by far for getting models in front of my camera. I'm proud to have been here 9 years having joined only a few months after it was established in 2005.
TFCD is all about promotion, therefore I acknowledge those I've worked with in several ways.
The unassigned/default album "rp_photo's photos" is the most recent work, followed by "3- Recent". Images that acquire sufficent comments are moved to the "1 - Top 80" albums, with the most popular to the left. Mature/18+ images are always kept in the "4 - Mature" albums to avoid "co-mingling" that some find objectionable.
Top 12 friends are those most recently worked with, with top left being most recent. These would be the best to contact as far as references.
Recent work (Pending or online less than 2 months). Shoots that predominately feature models under 16 are not listed, but can be found on http://www.richardsfault.com

RIP Peter "Dain"Martin #1614957 1956 - 2016. You will be missed by me and many others in the local creative community. I only wish we had worked together more than we did.
RIP Candy 1998 - 2014. Thank you for being an early model and test subject and for keeping me company during editing sessions.
RIP Shelia 1994 - 2010.
RIP Michel 1990 - 2006. Thank you for inspiring me to get back into photography, which no doubt helped me to cope with the unthinkable.
