What really makes a "pro"? If you're concerned with impressing people with labels, consider how underwhelming this sounds:
Adjective: Of, relating to, or connected with a profession.
Noun: A person engaged or qualified in a profession.
Being a "pro", for me, demeans artistry. When the pursuit of the dollar becomes primary over the creation of beauty, you've lost something. The art is chief on my list. I consider myself an artist. I shoot for the love of art, and the beautification of nature, man, and woman. Over the years, photography (in all of its manifestations) has become a part of my life.
What I'm looking to find here are models (male or female) willing to work with me to find a fun and relaxing common ground; to produce art. I think there is so much more to be found in what everyone else considers the mundane. Photography has been around for quite some time, and some might argue that, "it's all been done before." I am appalled by that notion and seek to find models with the same mentality.
