I'm James... I shoot photos & videos.
I am a published Photographer and Agency Approved.
I've been a successfully working actor for a ton of years - modeling early on.
Myself, I've acted in over 250 National and International Commercials, Theater, Major Film & Television roles (working with Brad Pitt, Naomi Watts, Snoop, Jaime Lee Curtis, Ed O'Neill, Ryan Kwanten, and more)
Also, working with directors from David Fincher, Barry Sonnenfeld, to Wayne Wang, & Tony Kaye.
And I've recently been seen on "Southland" & "Outlaw" Series Television with Jimmy Smits/Jesse Bradford.
In addition to my own acting, I coach and teach actors (5 who are currently starring on Network Television Series and several that are starring in Major Films). One of my actors just signed a holding deal with NBC/Universal.
I still act, teach, cast, and shoot - In & With - Legitimate Working Professionals. www.jamesreesestudios.com
I want to tell stories with my photos, my videos, and
continue to grow as an artist and as a man...
Shooting from Sexy to Funny, Quirky to Nude (or implied),
More Sports & Fitness to always Confident, Classy, and Tasteful.
Thank you for viewing my photos.
NOTE TO MODELS: Reality check. Educate yourself. REAL
Models actually have to be professional too
(just like real photographers need to be.) Excercise, show up on time, return phone calls and have a willingness to risk in a safe environment.
Look at your current photos. Honestly. Do they look anything like, what is legitimately being published in a magazine, newspaper, an ad campaign, etc.? Yes? NO?
Photoshop is a nice tool when used lightly. However, overly vomitted photoshop does not make it cool (it's fine for facebook & sharing amongst friends).
What are your real goals here (on Model Mayhem)? Get real. Are your goals aspirational or are they merely to just hook up? Both are fine... just don't kid yourself.
Entitlement Minded Peeps.
Just cause you're pretty or handsome (-ish) doesn't mean you're a model.
If you have 3 photos that were shot by your best friend and a true and legitimate photographer offers their services. Get your head out of your arse and follow through.
And if this is the case... you haven't earned the right to get paid yet.
Lastly, sexy comes from confidence and from inside... It can't be acted and you can't play the idea. It has to be real. Look at truly successful models. That's their gift.
