About MeMy Vision
I am passionate about photography and love working with models to create beautiful, sensual, erotic and mysterious works of art. I am drawn towards shooting boudoir, pin-up, burlesque, fetish, nude and implied nude photography, but most importantly I strive towards capturing the beauty, power and grace of the feminine form. I also love to work with models with an alternative look (tattoos, piercings, wild hair, etc.), and I am open to working with models of all experience levels.
I have been photographing using professional equipment for the last 24 years. I excel with studio lighting and using natural lighting on location. I am also a trained artist (sculpture & painting) and self-trained web designer so I bring a very artistic approach and strong design esthetic to my photography. I primarily shoot indoors in my kick-ass studio, but other locations indoor and out are a possibility.
I am always professional and dependable and I expect the same from those I work with. FLAKES/NO-SHOWS will NOT get a second chance - sorry but there are tons of amazing models who know how to show this basic level of professional respect. If something comes up or you are running late email/call/text me asap!
I love working with new models and I am willing to shoot TF with select models. For TF I require a signed model release and I will send you a minimum of 8 edited and retouched pics that will have my watermark / logo on it. I never release un-edited or un-retouched images. I will not release or publish any crappy work that makes the model or the photographer look bad.
Model Tear-sheets and payments
I would love to get you published and will provide digital tear-sheets for all published images. Payments to models will only be available with published work.
I am currently a published photographer on Zivity.com and I'm looking for new models to shoot for that site. (Check out their FAQ page for more info: https://zivity.zendesk.com/forums/20564226-model-faq-s). I'm also open to shoot for other publications and sites, including SuicideGirls.com.
For non-TFP and published work, my standard rate is $100/hr which includes 5 edited photos/hr. The minimum photoshoot time is 90 minutes. Extensive set design or extensive photo retouching will require additional payment.
Retouching & Editing
I do very minimal digital retouching of the images and I do not approve of the extensive use of photoshop in digital photography. Removing blemishes and touching up eyes is all I am willing and capable of doing.
I aesthetically crop and create a custom digital exposure/image processing for all of the final images.
My intention with retouching and editing is to create a artistic and unique look while still maintaining the realities of traditional film processing and printing.
Escorts are welcome to come with you to inspect the location / studio, but they will be required to leave once the shoot begins. While I respect a model's need for safety, having an escort present during the shoot creates just enough self-consciousness and distraction to take away from the magic, intensity and beauty that I'm attempting to capture.
