Mayhem # 141498
Continuing to cut back fairly dramatically (2-3 per month max) non-sports shoots....
Time for an update it would seem. I am STILL a pro photographer currently based in Philly. Assignments and working vacations take me to DC and North Central West Virginia if not often, regularly. A couple things you should be forewarned about:
-> I live for details. More up front the better and the fewer surprises later. If we start talking about a shoot don't be shocked to get a ton of detail....I do NOT necessarily expect the same back.
-> I have worked with several truly amazing and awe inspiring people over the years. Given a choice I would always work with them as the first choice...see some of them below and in my port.
-> I shoot almost exclusively commercial looks for stock/assignment images. If you want to see examples of previous shots in use - just ask - would be MORE than happy to share.
-> If you can play a sport and want to shoot images of it....you are my hero.
-> I am a clutz...it's ok to laugh when I fall off something while shooting. I'm used to it.
-> I try to defuzz from our cats often....BUT...they are sneaky little guys, so if you are allergic to cats, stay upwind of me.
-> Smiling is AWESOME. If you want to shoot where you can smile....you Rock! IF you smile while playing a sport....(sigh)...you are approaching perfection. The world needs more smiling people...just saying.
-> I LOATHE shooting weddings. I love weddings though. If you want to shoot a fake wedding and have the gown...sign me up.
