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.
WARNING to all you chix who drink diet stuff like I did since 77; DON'T DRINK ANYTHING WITH ASPERTAME IN IT !!! It is likely that this has caused all my recent health problems, and it is a DANGEROUS product that is in nearly all diet drinks, sweetners etc. Just don't do it, or you will forget your dog's name and how to talk, and have some serious seizures. Trust me. I'm much better, but just don't drink the stuff.
UPDATE*****5-22-2015*****: I am 'sleepingdragon57' on Skype. and 'NWGphoto' on Facebook (the one with the flight suit pic at top) and Jason King on there (my pen name). I AM STILL DOING THIS, but the -'I gotta cell phone cam so I'm a photog'- syndrome seems to be spreading and reducing interest in real photogs around here. I am looking for some more 'time for photos' sessions where I will give you the files after I've worked on them. I still have my studio, and I have a local museum with some old Navy training planes (T-28), and have found a museum in Marietta (with scetchy hours) that has many modern military jets that will compliment my flight suit and helmet quite well. That includes an F-14 (what Tom Cruise flew in 'Top Gun'). These Aircraft are on pavement and in much better condition than the ones Carla posed in back in 88. See my shots of her in 88, and of Ellen last year with some old tanks. I've been looking for modern aircraft to shoot with for quite a while, now I just need some more subjects (over 18 of course). I check skype regularly as well as facebook.
Also, 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: WARNING to new models - 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. 99.9% are very reliable and safe, and value your safety and honor your wishes, 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.
But primarily 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 Calhoun to 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 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 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.
You can contact me on here, and I'll send my phone number per request if you wish to talk more. I'm also on skype and facebook as shown above.
