"The camera sees what the eye sees AND what the eye wishes it could see."
***My business is taking off so I am beginning to limit the amount of TF work I do. However, I thoroughly enjoy TF work, so if I contact you it means that I think you have a lot of potential. If you contact me and have an idea that I feel would be great for both of our portfolios, I am all ears. I also have TF days, where I will set aside a few hours just for TF shoots (perfect for aspiring models).
My name is Brandon Andreadakis. I love photography because great photos allow one to see images that normally would not be visible to the naked eye. I have been shooting since I was 11 years old and my father got me my first professional camera (a Nikon N90s that I still use for b/w film work). I set up my first darkroom that same year. While I still enjoy the organic process of film, I have moved mainly to digital. I do not favor one aspect of photography over another, as I am always eager to take a shot of something in a new and creative way.
It is my job to make you feel relaxed and comfortable during our shoot. I am completely ok with you bringing an escort, as long as he or she understands that this is a professional shoot, and will act accordingly.
It is very important to keep appointments and to be punctual. I put a lot of time, effort, and money into shoots. Many shoots involve more than just the photographer and the model. There are wardrobe designers, stylists, make-up artists (MUAs), photography assistants, on-site personel and attendants, art directors, retouchers, and more involved. If you need to cancel a shoot, please let me know ASAP!!! If you are running late to a shoot, please let me know as well. I promise that I will do the same for you.
How soon you get your images varies. Depending on the level of retouching, graphic arts, etc, it can take anywhere from 3 days to 2 weeks. Please be patient and I assure you that you will be pleased with the outcome. I provide images in a variety of ways. I can send you a CD, I can post to a online gallery, and I can provide a link for you to order professional prints.
If we have planned an outdoor shoot and the weather does not look like it will cooperate, I will let you know ASAP if I am canceling the shoot. I have been known to shoot in the rain, but it severely limits the equipment that I can use. If bad weather is forecasted, please keep in communication with me.
The best shots are those that showcase the model's unique beauty, energy, personality, and character. I aim to capture that. Unless I am looking for a specific shot, feel free to express yourself in your poses, attire, make-up, and hair. I want to know about YOU. If you are a gymnast, tell me. If you are a swimmer, tell me. If you are a chef, tell me. I want to shoot who YOU are.
My shoots are fun, relaxed, and comfortable. I have never had a model who did not have a good time shooting with me. If we are shooting in the studio, I like to play music to set the mood for the shoot. Let me know beforehand what kind of music you like, so I can put together a playlist for our shoot.
A quick note about nudes:
My artistic nudes aim to showcase the beauty of the female form. Please check out my images for examples. If you are not comfortable with shooting nudes, no problem. If you decide that you would like to try a nude shoot, just let me know. If you are unsure, you are welcome to come watch a nude shoot (with the model's permission) to get an idea of what is involved.
I look forward to meeting you and shooting together!

If we shoot together, you can go into my portfolio. When I have a paid job, the client has the ability to select models for their shoot. If you are selected, I will let you know and we can discuss terms. Recently, I have been hired by some boutique upscale clothing stores to shoot print ads. If you are interested in shooting fashion, this could be a great start for you.
