For the last ten years I have climbed the spiked ladder of the film industry. During this time, I have vented my angst and expressed my desires through sculpting and illustration. Unfortunately I have developed a tremor in my left hand that adversely affects my ability to express artistically. I was left with only a void, an expressionless oblivion. Recently I cleared my head, thanks to my friends, and realized I can apply my film technical knowledge and my illustration expertise to photography.
[b]My art… [/b]My art is generally a primal expression. I strive to capture and convey true raw emotions. I usually invest in the darker emotions, ergo Dark Cognizance, but do very also do well at the lighter side. I am not interested in creating flat emotionless, yet gorgeous pictures. This does not mean I do not do attractive shots, quite the opposite actually. I can and will do any aesthetic; it just must be engrossing to the viewer. [b]No vicarious experiences here.[/b]
I am escort friendly, as I feel safety should always be paramount. I do however require respect from all parties involved, and limited to one escort.
[b]I believe photography is a collaborative art. I usually have a strong vision, but am very open to suggestions, like I said collaborative.[/b]
I will [u]always[/u] require a model release, no negotiations. If your photographers are not requiring this… something’s wrong.
If nudity is part of the shoot, I require a valid drivers license as proof of age. I don’t care if your 85, I will not negotiate on this. Also any nudity, implied, or otherwise will be discussed in advance. No surprises or pressure here. [b]Art is creation, and creating must flow free from a place of trust. [/b]
Any model doing a TFP shoot will receive their copies within a week, and that’s the worst-case scenario. If this can’t be done, the model will be informed before the shoot.
Last, but not least… this is art, a piece of my inner workings, expressed through photography… So the goal is to create, express, and have fun.
