My mode of operation is "non-pushy", meaning that I'm able to book all the shoots I can handle with models who respond to my casting calls, 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. Silence is also my preferred method of letting a model know that I don't wish to shoot at this time. While some may not agree, it is my belief that silence is better than false enthusiasm or "butthurt" comebacks. In short, If you want to shoot you will need to find out about me and ask, and if you change your mind at any time I will not protest.
I'm also proud of my reputation for being "non-pushy" at shoots. I'm not one to talk models out of clothing, and any nudity will be discussed and agreed to in advance. Also, I tend to be 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.
Image editing backlog is always a challenge, and to keep things fair the highest priority is given to individual TF shoots, then group TF shoots, then individual paid, and lastly group paid shoots. Models I shoot with individually and at TF group shoots will always receive a full shoot 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, and it may take me many months to make final edits.

These days, I'm concentrating on the following types of shoots:
$100+ paid nude shoots plus selection opportunity and finished images at Meetup events and one-on-one at proven Barker Reservoir locations and a future home studio. I am interested in both male and female models. See my casting calls or contact me for more info.
Clothed shoots with some topless at additional, carefully-chose locations with pay ranging from $50 to $100 plus selection opportunity and finished images.
Ongoing shoots with models I've worked with regularly.
Clothed TFCD Meetups that I organize in the Shabby Chic Meetup group.
Selected events with other Meetup groups.
