... I am not currently looking for nude models ... I know that's the reason most "photographers" are here, but at the moment I don't have any customers asking for nudes.
I like crisp lines filled in by well defined and un-muddied colors. I use models as models to convey expression and not as "props" (no 'turn your head this way, chin down...)
I have been a full time photographer since 1983, and I divide my time between the U.S. and northern China.
I ALWAYS have my shots pre-planned and provide either sketches or example photos to the model ahead of time so you'll know exactly what to expect. I plan each shoot around a specific theme. If you have a particular shot or two you want for your own port or use however I'll do my best to get it just the way you want it sometime during the shoot.
The majority of my photos either go to a couple ad agencies in China (Beijing, Harbin and Shenyang) or istockphoto / Getty Images.
If I agree to pay you in photos, it takes a week to ten days to get them to you; I NEVER release raw un-retouched photos; Letting images out of the workflow prematurely is just bad business. Cash gets paid at the end of the shoot. I will also keep you informed about where your image goes - I"ll never post you anywhere online without your knowledge.
I also pay in Retouching - If you have photos and need them fixed I'm expert in CS5. I'm even willing to do those ahead of our shoot, if asked nicely ! (removing cars,people, etc from the background, enhancing eyes, removing blemishes and even the occasional love handle)
I do not Facebook. I also do not Twitter, Flickr, Myspace, RenRen, QQ, Skype, Weblog, Yahoo or put ketchup on a perfectly good steak. It's not that I am anti-social - it's that I'm too busy earning a living.
