About Me• 1/29/14 - Hey, it's been a blast, but I'm scaling back my account here. Thank you, happy birthday!
7/27/13 UPDATE - For the moment, I will no longer be working with local models, unless I've worked with you before. As I've commented, there are beautiful women here, and models with potential, but there have just been too many scheduling misfires, and that takes up too much of my time. Local models who insist on working with me will unfortunately be charged exorbitant fees, with an upfront deposit. The deposit will be non-refundable, even if you lose interest, change your mind, find a boyfriend, etc. (Exceptions may be made for VERIFIABLE emergencies or for annual cat shearing festivities.)
+ You may also message me on facebook, and I'll get back to you after I'm finished with the next bag of cookies.
+ I'm a South American original, but I grew up stateside and earned a bachelor's degree (graphic design) here.
+ From time to time, I do pay models who conduct themselves professionally. But you have to be REALLY good. That usually means you've been published, you can pose like a superstar, and you're fairly proficient with your own makeup/styling. (It also helps if you bring cookies to the shoot.)
+ Most models enjoy shooting outdoors, and I usually select a location that's open to the public. But if you prefer not to shoot outside or if you prefer shooting in a secluded location when outdoors, just let me know. Preferably before the day of the session.
+ I only release images after I've taken time to edit them. And sorry, RAW files are never provided to models.
– No images with blood & gore or with models holding guns.
– Photographers, if your marketing plan includes belittling & slandering other photographers, that's sad. If that's you, stay out of my way.
– Yup, some photographers "list" someone else's images, go out and shoot a copy, remove the listing, and in effect take credit for the idea. Come on, this is supposedly a creative field - I know you can do better.
+ As tags & comments may go unnoticed, if you sincerely want to work with me, please send me a message. Merci beaucoup!

Model: Alysha Nett
Thank you to the ladies outside of this network that I've had the privilege of collaborating with. In alphabetical order, these are the MM models that have been cool enough to work with a rookie photographer like me:
• ABIGAIL LEE #2016728
Abigail braved the elements for the photo shoot, and she did so with her wonderful smile and endearing charm!
• AISHA AYI #1314051
As an emerging model, Aisha is a statuesque beauty with great potential. (And did I mention she's tall?)
• ALYSHA NETT #469272
Even with her considerable experience in posing and her multiple print and web credits, Alysha displayed a most welcome personable quality. (On a side note, with her cute voice, I'll bet Alysha could do something like voice-over work, too.)
• ALYSSA LAUREN #1581954
Alyssa is blonde, beautiful, and has a natural ability to make others laugh & smile. What more need I say?
• AMY MAHON #1318875
With a pleasant personality and excellent acting skills, Amy presented beautifully for a video collaboration project. (And who knows, maybe she's the next great soccer star!)
• CECE MICHELLE #2122763
CeCe is a sweet model whose long, tall frame resulted in several wonderful shots! I also appreciated the fact that she arrived makeup-ready and prepared.
• CHRISSY #1751013
An athletic model, Chrissy willingly posed on all types of terrain for the session. Her beautiful figure and very positive attitude made it an absolute delight to work with her.
• JANE KANYINDA #3509651
I had the privilege of collaborating with Jane, and I have to compliment her on her beautiful looks & the fact that she arrived with her makeup applied, all set to shoot. She's a tall beauty with potential!
• JILL-JAX #445074
Also an experienced model, Gillian immediately segued into posing mode, regardless of the fact that there were several hundred people a few feet away at an event!
• KANDIE JUSTINE #730608
It was great working with Kandie! She's beautiful, continually upbeat, and very capable of applying her own makeup. And I also see increasing potential in her ability to pose for fashion themes.
• KERRI TAYLOR #982
Kerri's got the moves, and personally I think she looks amazing as Wonder Woman.
• LISAREE #2100548
With Lisa being fairly new talent, I was still impressed by her developing ability to pose and create rhythm with her figure. And I would also add that she is so much fun to work with.
• PETITE UKRAINIAN #3340257
I have only positive things to say about Masha. She applied her own make-up and came prepared with a wonderful disposition & great poses. I commend her for committing to the shoot with such a positive demeanor.
• RACHEL DASHAE (x2) #98824
Rachel not only has a sweet personality, but her modeling skills are out of this world! She truly was wonderful to collaborate with.
• TANCY MARIE #820944
An incredibly beautiful model, Tancy dazzled with her stunning looks, resulting in a memorable & successful shoot.
• THEA ATHENA #807913
Both punctual and professional, she has a smile that will light up the room. It was a privilege to work with beautiful Thea in my first ever model shoot.
• YULIA M #1535533
Among the most prolific models in the area with a diverse portfolio, Julia was determined to get the shot, even if it meant climbing slippery rocks on the beach at sunrise!
