I would like to expand my portfolio with interesting new images so I'm interested in hearing from photographers in the area that can assist me.
Please send me enough info with your initial contact so I can evaluate your proposal and I will get back to you.
Friend requests Don't take it personally but I only accept friend requests from people I would consider working with or professionally associating with . If you are just a friend collector then you may as well just move on .
Pay and TFCD . I am open to TFP/TFCD with some photographers on a case by case basis . I will always consider the work in your portfolio before I agree to a trade shoot . I may request a small fee even if it is a clothed shoot if I do not think that your work will be a good addition to my portfolio.
Nudes My interest in nudes will be limited to either pay or something outstanding that will help me get paid work. Please ask for a rate or present your projects for my consideration.
Tear sheets /calendar shoots I get offers for tear sheets and calendar projects all the time from photographers who think I am dumb enough to shoot with them TFP when they are getting paid. Not likely, if you get paid for the shoot then you should be professional enough to pay the model .
Test shoots Sure if they are real and not like the guy in Nashville who wants to "test " for Hustler and Taboo and have me sign a full release so he can sell the images and give me nothing .
Video Don't know where to start saying no to video. Unless it is for some "professional" G-rated purpose it is just "no"
Travels I plan to travel to Knoxville and Clarksville some time soon . Please let em know if your interested in working with me .
