Mayhem # 154922
It's been about five years since I was last active on MM (October 2010) due to being sucked into management at that big Redmond software company, but after a long hiatus focusing on careers and family and single malt Scotches I'm back and looking to network. I'll be updating the profile regularly with new projects and other pertinent info so consider it a work in progress for now.
I've listed some of my upcoming projects below, but this list is not inclusive. I'm always working on ideas and am always open to collaboration if you have a project/theme of your own that you want to complete.
And since it has to be said:
From time to time a model will request if she can bring an escort to our shoot. While I'm not necessarily against escorts I've found that they can distract an inexperienced model more often than not. And since I primarily do TF* work I tend to work with a lot of inexperienced or not-as-experienced models. Having said that, if you require an escort at your shoots we can discuss that. However, if they prove to be a distraction at any level either they have to leave or I will. Not trying to be a dick, but if you're distracted then we're really wasting our time, and I'd rather waste time in a hot tub, drinking Greek wine and playing Xbox.
1. Alice in Wonderland series. We'll be shooting a post-apocalyptic theme Alice in late spring 2016, seeking models for roles, MUAs, and stylists. Location will be in Eastern Oregon and the shoot will be 99% outdoors (yes, in the hot, arid desert!). No mamby-pambys for this one, it'll be hot and you're gonna sweat. Must be 18+ for this project due to adult content and themes (implied/partial nudity, psychological violence, etc).
2. Infrared artistic nude series. We'll be shooting artistic nudes in infrared at various outdoor locations in Washington, Oregon, and British Columbia. We need local models in each of the areas we will be shooting, so if you're interested please contact me to get a list of the areas we'll be working. Must be 18+ due to artistic nude content. I'm open to roadtripping with local Seattle models who would like to travel to Oregon or BC to shoot, but I get to control the CD player This project is ongoing through the end of 2016 (at least). Most of these locations require a short hike to get there from main roads, so bring comfy hiking boots.
3. Winter fashion/editorial - now that winter is here, I want to get up into the Passes to shoot some winter fashion and editorial solely for portfolio development. I'm also open to photographing winter sports - skiing, snowboarding, etc. If you want to shoot in the snow, let me know. No nudes/implieds for this project.
4. Ninja Schoolgirls Gone Wild - ever seen the movie Battle Royale? Ever seen the Crazy 88's fight scene in Kill Bill? Ever wondered what would happen if you mixed the two and it took place in the snowy mountains of Washington? I have. And I'm gonna do it. I need Asian females only for this project. Must be comfortable working with swords (the swords are real but the shots are all staged), and mild theatrical makeup (scratches, light amounts of blood). I need about 20 to 30 models to pull this off the way I'm seeing it so the likelihood of this one happening is slim I know. I will need to find an MUA for this project as well. There is no nudity for this project, however there is staged mild violence. This project will be a lot of fun and very tongue-in-cheek, so be prepared to have a good time. No dates are set for this yet but we expect to shoot in December 2016.
New projects are coming, so add me as a friend and keep an eye on the Bulletins for project updates.
