Lists: If I listed you as a model or photographer. It's because either I'd like to work with you or like your work. I'm not looking to receive a listing or comment in return. I welcome them though, and also welcome honest constructive critique. I love what I do and feel I am getting better..but love free guidance from others with opinions.
Cards: If I gave you a card directing you here it's because I saw you and feel that you'd fit perfectly in an idea I have. Hopefully, you'll feel the same way. If you have never modeled before, I will do everything in my power to make it a comfortable experience for you and hopefully we'll both have some images that we can be proud of... If you happen to already be a model, please send me a link to your page.
Competent photographer/amateur artist.
I have been shooting occasionally for a few years now and have worked with some great and beautiful models. I hope to work with all of them again and more. I have paid most of the models I have worked with and have no problem doing so again...however, I think now that I am at a level where I can help someones profile as much if not more than they can help mine. So, I am more interested in TF than anything else. I am still very open to shooting with paid models, but I'm not the least bit interested in paying someone to practice. No one paid me to practice.
I am a huge fan of most genre's of photography but prefer to shoot nudes over anything else. Nudes in nature, nudes in abandoned buildings, nudes in where ever.... I have recently come to the realization that I need to be inspired by the model, the location and the concept or I'm just not going to meet anyone's expectations, especially my own. And, nudes inspire me. Whether you are male, female, straight, gay, goth, geek, nerd, jock, athlete, "skinny", "fat", proud or ashamed...if you can show me something about yourself while naked..I want to shoot with you.
That being said, nudes are far from all I want to shoot. I am also very interested in vintage style photography, maybe a pin-up here and there, and dark or Gothic type images. I have a few ideas I'm looking to complete and will gladly explain and discuss them with anyone interested.
I've never really had an escort policy but do now. I have linked every photo to the model in the photo if they have a profile on MM. Please check with them. If you still feel the least bit hesitant to show up without an escort, then I am fine with it. However, I prefer it be a sibling, friend, etc. If you're only choice is a significant other, I expect them to model nude as well. No one gets to be there for free.
What you can expect from me:
If a TF shoot, I will have all of the photos posted within a couple of days to a secure site. I will send you a link with password and ask that you pick out a few of your favorites. I will do whatever editing is necessary to those files, as well as the ones I choose and get them to you with a week, two weeks at the most, I will either send you a CD/DVD, or repost them to that same site but make them available for download, or email them to you. The only rights given for any of these images, to either of us, is for use in our portfolio.
If a paid shoot. I pay you what we decide prior to shooting when the release is signed, in cash. No photos will be promised but if you see one you like, and would like to use, please say so and I'm sure I will gladly let you use it. If I paid you then anything you like enough to use would be a huge compliment.
Any shoot. I will be respectful and professional. I will be ready for you when you arrive. I will be very clear in our goal and what I think we need to do to get there.
What I expect:
Good clear communication. Terms, limits, who is gonna show up with you, etc. There should never be any wondering or doubt about either of our goals or intentions. Show up ready to shoot or at least ready to get ready to shoot. Be on time or at least let me know that you're running behind. Don't show up late then need to rush our shoot so you're not late to your next one. If we are going to shoot all day and it's my responsibility to get you somewhere for your next day, tell me the day before so I can plan accordingly. Be yourself; If I wanted to shoot someone else then that's who I'd be working with...be shy, be open, be loud, be fun or funny...just be you. That's who I want to work with.
Traveling paid models. Please do tell me when you're in my area. I am open to paying good, experienced models that inspire me. I would not know you were here if you don't tell me. It doesn't mean we'll work together but if you don't tell me I can assure you that we won't.
