I am literally 50 deep in confirmed trade requests for 2013. Half are new models with experience and the other half are repeat shoots. I'll be happy just to get through half of those this year. So if I don't respond to your request, please understand I have a large booking pool. Paid shoots are the only way to guarantee getting to the front of the line.
Need a reference? Ask any model I have worked with. Asking anyone else would be inaccurate. Since I work alone, other photographers would have no idea what it is like to work with me.
Photos don't need to be trashy to be interesting. I love creating images with people who are beautiful inside and out. Please don't contact me with a sense of entitlement. I like down to Earth people.
For people I have not shot with before but want to work with me, I am going to make it a requirement to either talk on the phone, or meet in person to discuss the shoot. I will not put someone on my schedule until one of those two happen. I figure that only then are people serious about following through. I think this is a very simple request. If you need to cancel, be professional about it. It's common courtesy. I don't want to waste your time, so please don't waste mine.
Rates start at $150 for a two hour shoot with 3 edited photos.
Models will be given ALL raw images on a USB flash drive they bring with them to the shoot. Walmart, Target, NFM etc usually have 4 gig drives available for $7.
