Mayhem # 147067
I have operated as Colonial Photograhy since 1987, and done side work for many more. But Until 87, I only photographed airshows and aircraft primarily. Then one day while showing a camera and some photos to a friend, his sister cruised through in her bikini, so I turned that thing loose on her (the camera that is). The results were good enough to result in her and her friends demanding more, so this snowballed into portfolios, portraits, weddings etc. I also did many of the local pagents to learn technique and sold some to the participants.
11-27-14 NEW NOTE: Since everyone seems to believe that they are a photog due to having a cell phone with a camera, it seems that there is little demand for modeling photography itself. SO, I'm gonna go back to doing this for fun, and to stay in practice and offer the opportunity to allow some gals to get some REAL photography from a guy with a REAL camera who is actually a PHOTOGRAPHER. If you have a look I want to add and are close enough to make this affordable (I'm closer to Rome than Calhoun), I am willing to discuss doing some work for you, on location or in my studio etc. I will provide you with photoshopped images that you can obtain prints for, as long as it does not cost me very much. There are many good locations around here, and I of course still have my studio. - Assuming anyone still comes here anymore.
-----(8-16-13 - A REQUEST FOR ANYONE IN NORTH GA; I NEED OLD MILITARY AIRCRAFT ON DISPLAY, ANY ERA, FOR BACKDROPS. MY OLD SOURCE IS GONE, AND I NEED TO FIND A REPLACEMENT, LIKE OLD JETS ON DISPLAY IN PUBLIC, AT PARKS, AIRPORTS, OR EVEN IN A FIELD SOMEPLACE. THE ONES I USED HAVE BEEN MOVED. I PREFER SOMETHING THAT ISN'T A MAJOR MUSEUM AS THERE ARE TOO MANY LIMITATIONS/COMPLICATIONS IN THOSE. I JUST CAN'T FIND ANY THAT I CAN GET ACCESS TO. THANX.)-----
I've got a killer footbridge and some other great locations, just looking for somebody that wants to try them for trade.
A new NOTE: You younger gals just starting out in this bz really need to be more careful and I suggest you take somebody with you when first meeting a "photog" on here, and meet in a public place first. 99.99% are very reliable and safe, and value your safety, BUT you must be careful and take proper precautions. Also let somebody know where exactly you are going. Provocative requests are ok, but you don't have to do anything you are not comfy with and you need to remember that, but that's just part of modeling/photography that you should know. I'm done lecturing you now; some recent events prompted me to say this, as this livelihood/hobby does not need any more bad press that makes us look bad.
ALSO: I'M LOOKING FOR SOMEBODY UP FOR SOME UPDATED FLIGHT SUIT PIX (see two in portfolio) THAT CAN FILL THAT THING OUT AND IS A BIT STATUESQUE (it"s kinda big for most girls). I can pin it up and the model can do her own adjustments. One set in my portfolio is 25 yrs old and I was just beginning, but I have just updated that with an excellent model from this site. I want to expand that to a series with several more if I can. This is a TFCD job (a CD and a few prints to) for self promotion.
I have done portfolios and other requests for extremely reasonable rates as well. If you need a project done for a particular need, or that requires prints, I can save you some money while giving you a pretty good product.
My more accurate location is North West Ga., the Rome/Calhoun/Cedartown area, all the way to Marietta. Things slowed a bit due to health etc, but I'm wanting to get going again. Need some newer material.
Though weddings are the most lucrative photography for me, I'd really like to get more into doing model type work, portfolios, portraits, advertising, etc, as that is a real hoot for me, and much of that is for fun (for trade), though I have made pro portfolios for bargain prices.
I want to give my work some exposure here and hopefully learn a bit. While I get paid for weddings etc, I'm always looking for potential models locally to add to my portfolio who want to trade their time for the digital files (you get all the files and a few prints, the best fixed up in Photoshop).
I have references if anyone needs them, and you must absolutely be over 18 WITH GOVT. ISSUED ID for me to even talk to you (blame the puritans, not me). I am very comfortable with you bringing escort, as long as it's not a possessive bf who wants to run the show and that you feel you must consult. I've actually had good luck with a couple of models' open minded bfs who contributed positive ideas, actually helping them be comfortable with some of the more provocative stuff.
You can contact me on here, and I'll send my phone number per request if you wish to talk more.
