About me
Thanks so much for checking out my work!

(If you want to see me for a reason ..)
Just click "Credits / Dennis-O" to get back here.

(I won't shoot nude! I always have pants on.)

Welcome back!
Now that we have that out of the way, THANK YOU models, (and their escorts, friends), and others who have helped my road-'trip & shoots' become some amazing trips and shoots and friendships!

Ramble on! (I'm a writer .. what can I say ..)

YOU:
I love to shoot classy, dignified, 'mature' female models (at least over 38, but pref around 40 and above). Casual, corporate - business, - you know what I mean, and of course, swimsuit if comfy and / or lingerie if you list it. Although I will shoot (almost) whomever and whatever you want, I personally find 'grown-up' girls very well put together - emotionally, spiritually, and physically.
"Beauty and sexiness are EARNED". So obviuosly I contacted you for a reason.
It would NOT do me any good to shoot anything 'unflattering". Why would I shoot that? Conversely, you'd be surprised at how a good photograph can make you look and boost your esteem. (Or excite significant other).

I'd shoot confidence over 'looks' any day. 'What the heck' over 'I only do'. I have no problem with us shooting for our personal 'take a chance' shoot.
I would NEVER post without checking on anything potentially damaging, as 'my models' can attest to. (See comments below.)

ME:
Right away I'll mention that I shoot for the love of shooting grown up women, kittens, steamrollers, (but not all together) and other stuff, so this is not my career. I don't want it to be. I already have one. (Actually 3 or 4. I come from the evils of media and now teach it.) I have no more desire to throw myself in the wheel, so I am indeed "an enthusiast hobiest" (as will crawl across the bottom of your screen should I find myself on the news). Frame it however you want. BUT the 'road-trip' always comes first.

I respect 'professional photographers' too much to insult them.

However, I take it very seriously for my pride's sake, your sake, and am always learning. I'm serious but fun! (See my 'tags' below!)  I’m "an old guy" who refuses to grow up.

I'm also very casual, ... man.

US: (OUR SHOOT)
We do not shoot anything you are not comfortable with - and that includes guns, politics, violence, snakes, bunnies, babies, or gaseous planets such as Jupiter..., or "sex" in any sense, if in doubt - unless you want to.
(We will have discussed that.)
Your escort is welcome. 
IF I'm road-tripping, I'm the stranger in your town.
I'd prefer a 3rd person present.

*Please note* -
IF I’m road-tripping thru your area, I’ll need YOU to find a ‘location’. A quiet park with change rooms will suffice. Most of my port was shot under these circumstances. OR - if you have or know of someone with a mansion (or bitchin' condo) for an afternoon! (I’ve never been to your town! I don’t know!) OR - let me know of a 'decent' hotel where we can shoot indoors and I will try to book it. "Background" as in mountains, etc. is NOT important. It will be fuzzy and you shall be Queen of.. my subject of focus. (??)

I DO NOT "text you when I get to town for details"! Too many details for me to work with, weeks in advance. I have to plan my road trip through your entire State or Province, based upon models' locations, dates available, etc. (Many do not check MM everyday and can take weeks to get back. This is why I contact so early.)
I have to be organized a couple of weeks in advance with at LEAST your chosen location, our type of shoot, date, time, and place to meet, all worked out before I fly out and drive many miles.

WHEN WILL I GET MY PICS?
Probably the number one complaint from most models about "some other" photographers. I take this seriously.
Clarity.
IF you're HIRED ("PAID"), then the photogrpaher's job is basically done. You have your paycheque and should not "expect" anything from the shoot.
IF TFP (free swap for time), then it's up to me to get off my butt! I can get "the shoot" or "best of the shoot" within 1 or 3 days during my trip  - but they probably won't be 'fixed', etc. (When I get home, I can play on my big computer.) IF we do a local (Vancouver) shoot, 2-3 days, regardless.
I prefer to give you what I can immediately, then you and I take some time, and 'we' decide which are the best representations of our work -  (I can represent us through Photoshop.)

And speaking of .....

PHOTOSHOP?
I 'fix' wrinkles, stretch marks, stubble, etc. to a degree, as I don't want you posting 'our' portfolio images if they are unflattering, but there is a limit.  I'm going to 'fix' shots as close to original as I can - unless I have some 'creative time'. I don't do the "plasticy-smudgy thing", and please put that on my tombstone. Just keep in touch with me and I'll do my best!

Ever wonder why certain pics on your portfolio get MORE VIEWS than others? What? Why ?? Because the photographer, model, client, and family and friends are all going to see pics differently for different reasons. You've grown up with looking at you. Oddly, YOU are not the best judge!

Realize this. (Take advantage of this.)
YOUR choice is what is most important for your portfolio, not mine nor anyone elses - UNLESS you're dealing with a seasoned, pro photographer (or get advice from a seasoned, pro model, legit agency, etc.). Otherwise, yes, I want you to choose. Although, a second set of eyes is always good, because we don't know you. "We" are photographers, other models, agents, (and yes, creepy guys in t-shirts who live in their mother's basement. 'Ewww.' Sorry. but true.)

Keep an open mind to others' choices. You may be missing a great representation of you.

"WRAP IT UP DEN!":
There are many great professional photographers, MUA's, hair, and photoshop artists out there and they should be utilized (and paid fairly), and again, I am not pro in this field, nor have any desire to take bread off the table of those who do this for a living. Just trying to help you to get to them.

It takes a long time folks, and IS an art. I shoot for what you and I want equally, but obviously I'm still learning - and if you want to be a part of that journey, then click above, have a look at my images and we take that road-trip together.

PS - If you know of anyone who would fit my preference who needs shots, but does not have an MM account, feel free to connect us.

Either way, give an email. You never know!

Thanks again for reading all of this, and good luck regardless!
You only live once!

- Den
