About Me

I have begun sending verified credit rquests, 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!

New bookings for the rest of 2015 will be very limited. I need get serious about reducing unacceptable backlog and devote holiday vacation time to the effort. Also, there are El Nino-related weather issues that have been and will be adversely affecting outdoor locations into the new year.

Traveling models and others wishing to book more than 5 to 7 days in advance please note:

Over the past 3 years, I've enjoyed many fantastic outdoor shoots booked up to 6 weeks in advance. While everything usually works out, I end up "stressing" as shoot day nears, especially during the November - April unpredictable season. As a result, future advance bookings will require a bad weather or conditions cancellation agreement, details of which will be negotiated once planning begins.

I'm not that well "connected" when it comes to arranging a backup studio, and the added cost could be an issue. Sometimes models are able to make better arrangements, and this will be considered as an alternative to cancellation.

In the hopefully near future, I will have my own home shooting space which will make this policy unnecessary

For awhile I've been in a "no outreach" mode, meaning that I don't ask people to shoot or place casting calls with rare exception. So in short, if you want to shoot, you need to ask. That being said, I'm very bad at turning down those who ask smile

My mode of operation is "non-pushy", 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. 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 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 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:

Paid nude shoots in a natural dry reservoir area close my home. Shoots take 3 hours including waking time and end around sunset. Models are paid for 3 hours. Models are welcomed to assist in image selections, but the current paid shoot backlog is 4 to 6 months. Example shoot

Paid swimwear/lingere/sheer/topless/discrete nudes at several proven locations that aren't as secluded as the above but offer varied scenery options. Example shoot 1  Example shoot 2  Example shoot 3

Ongoing shoots with models I've worked with regularly on request.

Clothed TFCD Meetups that I organize in the Shabby Chic Meetup group.

Selected paid and trade events with other Meetup groups.

One-on-one and group trade shoots are typically finished in 1 to 2 weeks.

Credit Notes

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
