Other photographers and camera collectors may be interested to know that I have been updating my website with individual galleries dedicated to the cameras in my collection. Visit my site and click on the "Old Camera/Old Film" link, and then make your choice from the links list that pops up. If you like what you see, please let me know.
My name is Pete Lutz. I'm a semi-professional photographer with several years' experience in portraiture and portfolio creation. I see photography as my way of "bringing art to the masses". While I seek many creative outlets (theatre, music, cartooning, graphic design), photography is my main source of artistic expression. If the images I have created make you think, or merely make you smile, then I have done a good job for the day.
Unless you are a model who has already made prior arrangements with me, or unless you are a model that I contact under these circumstances, I no longer shoot on a TFCD basis. If you are someone I have shot with in the past under these circumstances, and you wish to work with me again, please don't be offended if I ask you for a little bit of money. Obviously the work we did together helped your career in some way, or you wouldn't be coming back for more--why shouldn't I benefit as well?
I specialize in "old-school" styles such as Pin-up and Hollywood Glamour. My abilities are not limited to this, however. I shoot both in-studio and on-location. I work with natural light, tungsten lighting and strobes, depending on the circumstances.
My rates are reasonable and subject to discount if you're traveling from outside the Corpus Christi area. Contact me for a quote.
MODELS WHO CANCEL ONCE may get a second chance with me, provided they called prior to the shoot time to make their excuses.
Models who can't be bothered to contact me, or who send an e-mail the morning of the shoot, expecting me to be on-line instead of prepping for it, should not anticipate an additional opportunity of working with me.
I have worked with nearly fifty MM models in the past four years, having had several shoots with a select few. All of them were fun and productive, and I will gladly recommend any of these lovely ladies, just ask me.
to the above statement: there is one
whom I cannot recommend. She will post images without credits, she will alter your images without permission, and then block you and call you a jerk when you point out that she shouldn't have done that. I will not mention her name here, but if you're curious please contact me via PM.
