....If you would like to seriously work with me here are a few things to know
1. I am in this for The Images & The Art Of It...All Other BS can Fade To Black...
2. You don't have to be a Professional but you must have some Dedication to this.
3. Leave a message...TAGS & Comments are nice, but I don't get the hints & I can't read minds.
4. My attention span is short...If I show interest in working with you & you don't reply I'll move on
5. I don't just take pictures...I tell stories through Images
6. Read My Profile...It answers a lot of questions you may have.
7. Don't be too serious...But ALWAYS bring your "A" Game.
8. If we Can't Communicate...Then we Can't Shoot...Period!!! -
9. Don't waste my time and I promise I will not waste yours.
10. Most of all...HAVE FUN!!!
On a side note...Please DO NOT have it listed in your profile that you only do Paid Assignments, and then ask me to work with you for FREE...I will probably laugh or say something Sarcastic
Thank You for Checking me out...As you might see I am a Photographer, Digital Artist, and Retoucher all in one My home base is San Diego/La Jolla but I also travel for work in LA, OC, Vegas, Phoenix, & Seattle. What else can I say about me Ummmm... I am very direct and upfront, and some people may not like that or be able to handle that but hey...honesty is the best policy and sometimes the truth hurts...Love me or Hate me you will always know where you stand with me...
Now that, that is over...I have a true Love
for Photography and Graphic Digital Arts
. I still have a strong photography focus(MM# 406367)
, but I enjoy exploring all of the areas of Art & Creativity. I do not subscribe to one style of art, my work is very versatile and covers many different areas.
For the people I work with I bring Professionalism, Integrity, & Respect for others and their time, and I expect the same in return. You can ask any of the people I have worked with or done work for and they will say my shooting/working environment is one that is laid back, relaxed, comfortable, and most of all FUN. If you need references just ask.
I understand that not every job is for everyone and that some projects are not appealing to everyone...If I contact you or you contact me and ask about a project please have the courtesy to reply even if your answer is "NO"
, I am a big boy I will move on. If you are a no show or a flake, then I will NOT
reschedule with you without a deposit and if you paid a deposit you will lose it.
******DISCLAIMER ABOUT WORKING WITH ME******
***VERY IMPORTANT PLEASE READ!!!***
General Shooting Requirements
I DO NOT just show up and take pictures and hope the results come out good...I am very detailed and meticulous when it comes to my work, I will push you and drive you to get the best out of you.
I ask a lot of questions and have a lot of communication with the models I am going to work with. I am fine with corresponding via MM Messages or E-Mail to discuss project or a shoot...At some point before I shoot I expect to have at least 1 phone conversation and this is NON-NEGOTIABLE
. In some cases 1 pre-shoot meeting is required depending on how in depth the shoot will be but not always required. If any of the above is a problem, then I suggest you move on and I wish you nothing but the best of luck.
If I am contacting you to work with you, it is because I think you have a look that will go well with whatever project I am working on. I will be up front and honest on what I am looking for when I contact you. I am NOT
into surprises. ***Please note you will be expected to sign a Model Release***
If you look at my images you will see images of several different styles & genres, some including implied nudity and nudity...If I am contacting you about shooting PLEASE DO NOT
assume that I want to shoot any kind of nudity with you...If that is what I am looking for I will say so when I initially contact you...as I said above I am NOT
into surprises...Thank you
If we are shooting outside you can bring along anyone you like, I would prefer it be a girlfriend as I need you at your best in front of the camera and in my experiences that has not been the case when a husband or boyfriend (guy friend) is looking over my shoulder…Not set in stone, but it is strong a suggestion. Also if you do bring a friend/escort along they need to stay out of my way when we begin shooting...No fixing your hair or telling you how to pose. I will do the directing. If for any reason I get interrupted or interfered with I will end the shoot IMMEDIATELY...If I want their help with something I will ask...Thanks
Most models I have worked with have not needed or come with an escort. You can ask anyone in my top friends if you need a reference. When my shoots are in a studio NOBODY is allowed in the studio except the model, myself, and anyone from my staff including MUA’s & Hair Stylists unless previously approved. Studio Lights and Equipment are expensive to replace. I cannot work and watch someone else at the same time.
Status - Available to Commissions & Projects - Some TFP/TFCD
I will be shooting my Projects on the Table (See below) TFP. And I will be taking some TFP assignments on a case by case basis. This means that YES I do some TFP, but there will be a limit. If I decline or Say No please do not be upset, offended, or butt hurt...I have reasonable rates please message me for shooting or retouching information.
.......You have a better chance of me saying Yes to TFP/TFCD if it will be something that I do not have in my Portfolio or Catalog of Images already...
Projects on the Table
These are the Projects I am currently working on shooting, I am looking to submit the work for publication. Leave me a message if you would like more information on what is required for any of the Projects or if you would like to be a part of one. ***Please note you will be expected to sign a Model Release***
