They say that a picture is worth a thousand words, so within the photos I take I try to tell a story. It's not always just to shoot a pretty face, there's more to it.
My name is Dave Barnhouser and I've been shooting photos since I was in high school and started 13th Hour Photography about 5 years ago. My wife (Rachel) and I run the business together. I handle the photography and editing side of things while she handles the business and administrative side. I have a Bachelors Degree in Film and Video Production with a minor in photography from Stevenson University, which explains why most of my art looks like stills from a film. Some of my work has been featured in multiple gallery shows in the Baltimore area.
I am looking to Model Mayhem to help open the door to work with some talented models, makeup artists and hair stylists to try and create some new art. I am very interested in TFCD at this point as long as it is a project I'm interested in. I am not here to take sleazy nude photos, I create art, so please don't ask because I won't do it. I may be interested in some implied nudity but only if the imagery calls for it. I definitely enjoy some dark imagery and love horror however I am not a one trick pony. I am interested in glam/fashion as well.
I would love to help you show a different side of modeling to your portfolio so don't hesitate to ask or message me. I will always respond. I am very professional but a relaxed photographer to work with. I am OK with models bringing an escort for their comfort; however I just ask that they do not get in the way of the shoot (i.e. preferably not a boyfriend or husband).
I am very open to the ideas of others so if you have an idea, run it by me. I am willing to create an amalgamation of my work with your ideas, so jump on board and let's create some art!
