A little about myself: I currently attend Grand Valley State University and am majoring in Business Administration. Although I am a full-time student with a part-time job and military, my schedule is still fairly flexible, so please do not hesitate in contacting me with any ideas or requests.
I am more than willing to do TFP but I usually do not do TFCD. The reason being that first of all it is near impossible to get a regular length photoshoot on one CD, as well as I dont really care for handing out unedited raw images.
I also have experience in nature photography as well as automotive photography so anyone interested in trying to combine model photography with either of those two, please do not hesitate I am always up for it!
I have no qualms with any model bringing an escort and would encourage it if that would make the model more relaxed and comfortable.
Also, here is a great resource for aspiring models:

Reviews from models:
Ana (MM #1910557)
"Jacob has been a dream to work with! We have done multiple shoots together and he is always on time, professional and responsive to your needs. Collaborating with him is truly a pleasure. After working with him, he returns edited shots to you very quickly and they are always of the highest quality."

"Jacob of Jay R Photo is not only a great photographer but a great guy as well. I have worked with him on multiple and would not hesitate to continue to do so. He is relaxed yet professional and makes you feel at ease while shooting. He is willing to work for a great shot and we always end up with great images. I would definitely recommend him to any model who is looking to improve her/his portfolio."

Sammi (MM #2891372)
"Jake is an awesome photographer to work with! He's very laid back and easy going, I felt very comfortable with him during our shoot, and was able to have a great time. I would recommend him to other models as well, and I am looking forward to working with him again in the future!"
"WOW! From the first time we messaged via model mayhem, til the first time we shot. Jacob was extremely professional and full of ideas! He was a blast to shoot with, his personality really made the shoot. I'm very glad and honored I had the chance to work with him. I know our shoots in the future will produce amazing images. I'm extremely picky on the photos I like, and Jacob seemed to make it nearly impossible to pick out a bad one! I highly recommend working with Jay R Photography if you ever get the chance. Thanks Jacob!"
