||||||| FOR THE MONTH OF JUNE, I'LL BE DOING A LIMITED NUMBER OF TF SHOOTS. THE CATCH? IT MUST BE SOMETHING RAD. CONTACT ME WITH YOUR IDEAS AND WE'LL TALK ||||||||
***So I've just moved here to St. Pete at the beginning of October so I'm pretty much going balls out trying to make new contacts as well as meet and work with some good people in the industry here.***
That being said.....
I've only just entered into my early 30's, and looking back at the last 3 decades I would say that I have dipped my hands in many pots. I'm a full time fine art as well as fashion photographer. One thing that anyone who knows me would say, is that I thrive on creativity. Photography is my passion. It's what I feel I am here on this big round thing to do. There hasn't been anything in my life that has given me more satisfaction that sound of a camera shutter, other than maybe barreling down a strip of open highway on my '72 Honda cb450. (which is sick for dirty shoots...think The Fonz/Mad Max type stuff) It's been years since I picked up a camera for the first time and I remember distinctly like that camera, even though at that point I had no idea how to use it, was like a newly discovered part of my body. All of a sudden I woke up one day, looked in the mirror and discovered my third eye. Ever since, the world hasn't looked the same.
I love sharing my work with people. Love it or hate it, you decide. I just do what I do and hope that the world appreciates my contribution to the art community. When I'm not out shooting "The Unkempt" (visit my website to view this series www.petemaresco.com , I am shooting models, fashion, weddings, you name it.
I love feedback on my work. Good and bad. So please send me a message and let me know what you're thinking. I'm a pretty good reader, just don't catch me while I'm eating tacos...cuz then, you're just gonna have to wait my friend.....
In no way, shape or form do I mean to sound like a d*ck here..but..I am the photographer, the one providing the service, profession and skill set utilizing thousands of dollars in equipment. That being said, unless I approach you for a shoot, I will not work for free unless its just something awesome. Nor will I pay you (unless I'm shooting for someone and hiring you as the model)...If you want to shoot with me, It's not going to be free. However I am a firm believer in the barter system. Hell, the barter system has given my a full sleeve of tattoos and more...so, if you've got something good to offer, I'll entertain it.. (I definitely sounded like a d*ck....I assure you, I'm not.)
I'm on facebook and is a great way to get to know me on a personal level somewhat before we shoot.
