Mayhem # 1620187
About MeThank you for dropping by my carved out spot on model mayhem....
Trust and your word is the strongest gift of all. Never break it.
Things I promise if you work with me.
1. I’ll not make fun of you.
2. I'll not make you look ugly.
3. I don’t use emotional blackmail.
4. No is a legitimate and perfectly good answer.
5. I’ll give you all the images I take.
6. Like my whiskey with no ice.
Things I ask of you.
1. Model Release
2. Form 2257
3. Phone number before the shoot
4. You can put ice in your whiskey or not -- just enjoy your life.
If you’d like I can email both the model release and form 2257 ahead of time for your review.
I have no burning desire to get your clothes off. If you’d like to shoot nudes – thank you. If you don’t – thank you. I don’t care one way or the other. We can create with or without your clothes. I’m just an old guy that loves the art of photograph
I’m not sure how I feel about this. Sometimes I don’t care sometimes I do. My major problem is sometimes I find the escort more interesting then the model. So if you plan to bring an escort please make sure they are boring and very uninteresting.
Depends ...... let's talk about it. We are in the same boat. If you can add to my port I may/maybe will give you some money but other wise we'll be doing TFP.
"A portrait is not a likeness. The moment an emotion or fact is transformed into a photograph it is no longer a fact but an opinion. There is no such thing as inaccuracy in a photograph. All photographs are accurate. None of them is the truth" - Richard Avedon
If you'd like to work with me this is some of my thinking today
anything that re-interprets the natural courses of life. ie re-do the classics with modern production values.
(I've reviewed this list - still open to any and all these concepts)
Lines - think golden mean. ratios. circle to square.
Water - near, in, over
Sand - with windows and rags
Rocks - sandstone, lava, and/or fossils
Forest - new growth, old growth, and/or clear cuts
Brothers Grimm - anything except Cinderella
Stone houses - older the better
As my mother says "You'll miss 100% of the shots you don't take"
CreditsIf no one is complaining then you haven't risked enough.
"Beauty and Creation being formed from Kaos and Struggle."
""The moment one gives close attention to anything, even a blade of grass, it becomes a mysterious, awesome, indescribably magnificent world in itself."
There are no u-turns on the road of time.
Comfort zones can be powerful prisons.
