About MeI'm a professional fashion and celebrity photographer in NYC.
-I have a studio in Bushwick.
-I insist on having you come by for a meeting first. Obviously I want to see what you look like in real life, and personality matters to me. If I had to go out to coffee for every go-see, I would never get anything done. If you end up with an agency some day, you will always have to go see photographers, every day, all day long, so it's good practice!
There are a few reasons why I might shoot you for free (be specific when you ask me):
-you have an amazing face for B&W portraits
-You have a beautiful body and want to shoot fine art nudes
-You have a perfectly fit body and want to shoot lingerie.
-You are a unique and charming actress and would like some cool entertainment portraits.
I am available to shoot fashion and beauty for paid tests. A few hundred dollars spent that will be a great investment for your career.
If we work together, you will get some beautifully retouched images for your portfolio. 1 from each look.
*I am only on this site as a creative outlet and/or to offer my services for paid tests.
*If I am possibly interested in shooting you and I ask to meet you, I am not asking you to pay me. That being said, I will NEVER pay you.
* No Boyfriends on shoots or meetings, EVER. It's simply not professional.
*I have zero tolerance for flakes.
I don't want to work with anyone who is only interested in being paid. No successful person in the industry has that attitude, and yes, we all do this for a living. The fact is, you have to be constantly creating new great work with other creatives (for free) in order to get better paid jobs. And no, selfies don't count (joke). I don't like to end on what seems like a negative note, but seriously, some people need a reality check, or simply be educated on how things get done in the real (not online) world.
