I had been a professional photographer and studio owner for twenty years when I became slightly bored in my photography and decided to concentrate on the video production side of my business.
After a few years' hiatus, and the emergence of digital imaging, my passions for still photography have returned. Having been out of the field for a few years though, my portfolio needs updating and I'd like to gain as much experience as possible in a short period of time before fully marketing my services. For this reason, I'm primarily looking for TFP/TFCD shoots.
For beginning models that are particularly generous with their time, I'd be glad to put together a comp card for you at no charge... (though having it printed will still be up to you!).
Finally, as I have a full video-production studio, I have a unique idea and the capability of offering a very novel marketing tool to one model (only) at N/C to serve as a sample. While I'm willing to photograph many models on a TFP/CD basis, the extensive time and costs for the video project means I can only offer it to one model of my choosing.
In all cases, my wife or my female employee would be in-house during all shoots for your comfort, and the highest levels of professionalism and discretion are maintained.
I'm not claiming that I'll make anyone a star. I have no "inside contacts" in the industry. But I can give you some professional portfolio-enhancing images in exchange for your time!
