About me
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.

Now active on Deviant Art!

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.

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 "comingling" 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.

Excessive editing backlog is now limited to paid Meetup events at FotoFusion Studio, which is unfortunate but most fair to others I shoot with. Individual TF shoots will always be given highest priority, followed by TF group events and then individual paid shoots.
