I grew up in my father's photo studio and have spent much of my life involved in photography in one capacity or another. I converted to all-digital very early (1997) and began working with Photoshop even earlier (1991). Over the years, I have worked as a photographer, photographer's assistant, and as a digital retouch artist.
At some point, I decided that I enjoyed photography much more when I wasn't trying to make a living at it, so now I shoot for the sheer pleasure of creation and for the opportunity to collaborate with interesting, creative people.
I'm happy to do TFP with creative models (or non-models willing to shoot). Although most of my experience has been shooting women, I'm happy to shoot with models of any gender. I'd very much like to broaden my portfolio and would love to work with a diverse range of models.
Because I shoot as a creative outlet rather than as a source of income, I tend to be generous when it comes to image usage rights and am open to modifying release terms for any shoot to accommodate a model's portfolio or personal needs.
I also hire models from time-to-time, primarily for fine art nude work. I prefer to do at least one test or TFP shoot with a model beforehand unless circumstances, such as when a model is traveling, make that impractical.
