I am a professional photographer and make my living creating beautiful event and family portraiture. That being said, I very much consider myself an artist first and foremost.
I am here on Mayhem to expand my creative horizons with models who WANT to be photographed. It's a relief for me to work with someone who is not terrified of the camera. I do respect modeling as an art form and creative outlet. If you want to create some art with me I will consider TF shoots on a case by case basis with models I want to shoot for artistic purposes. I am selective in who I work with and it is NOT always a "Victoria's Secret" model I'm looking for. Different is more interesting to me than perfect.
I arrive on time ready to shoot like a professional and expect the same from models. I am not looking for a girlfriend or a peepshow. I shoot nudes but only if that's what's called for.
What I want to shoot right now:
Pinups. I love the look and the art and need practice.
Mild Boudoir. I'm building a portfolio of boudoir photos specifically to promote it as a new addition to my business.
Dark Arthouse Images: You wouldn't know it from my port, but artistically my heart lives in Film Noire.
TF - I'm not a photo booth. I'll provide between 5 and 15 images for download or on CD. More if we've done very well on a shoot. I will not provide an entire shoot, ever. I have an interest in only showing my best work and as a photographer I need to maintain control on what gets out into the world with my name on it.
Escorts - Required. I will only tolerate a boyfriend on set, however, if he will keep his suggestions to no more than 3 per shoot and is willing to move lights and props as required. This is not because I'm a jerk. I just know they tend to get in the way of the creative process by pushing the shoot too far in one direction or the other...a convent or a porn set...neither of which interest me.
Tattoos: Love 'em.
Studio: Have one. Don't use it much but we'll talk about it.
Equipment: I don't know why I get this question but for reference I use Nikon with professional lenses and Alien Bees and Nikon Strobes with every modifier I can get my hands on.
Style: I will do my best to shoot exactly what you want...for money. For TF we have to collaborate and agree what we're looking for artistically beforehand.
Time: For the right model I will shoot all day but understand I'm doing TF for fun/art. I usually keep these shoots to an hour or two. If we're grooving we can shoot till we drop if I've got the time.
I'm a nice guy and drama free! If you're interested in working with me, message me!
