Do not send me a message indicating,

Please read the ENTIRE bio before contacting me for a shoot.
Thanks for dropping by,
My name is Lee Cypress I am a published fashion photographer based in New York City. Everyone that I work with must sign a release, NO EXCEPTIONS. Due to time constraints I will no longer do TFCD. I like to network and work with new models, photographers, makeup artist, stylist, clothing designers who are looking to grow in this industry. I mainly shoot in New York but, I'am not restricted to this location. If you are located in areas such as North Carolina, South Carolina, Northern or Western Virginia,Washington DC, Baltimore even Va Beach....etc. Please let me know if you have any questions about me shooting in your area.
I do portfolio work for a modest fee. It is worth your while to have good portfolio pics done to start if you want paid work in the future, and that seems to be why most models are on here. I see many new models on here wanting paid work with, frankly, a very weak portfolio. You *will* get many GWC offers, but not many professional offers
NO trade shoots, and here's why...
Trade shoots are like any other photo shoot. They involve hours, and usually days worth of my time spent editing the shoot long after (you) the model has left, time that you're basically asking me to sacrifice from my own personal life for photos that I never even needed in the first place. Nobody likes being taken for granted. So, with that said...please just ask...you'll find my rates are well worth the investment in your portfolio, especially when you consider the depth of work we'll create together in only a single photo shoot.
-I do not pay models unless a client is paying me.
-I am always on time and expect the same courtesy!
-I need a way to get in touch with you (i.e. cell phone number.)
- We must meet in person before the shoot but at very minimum we should have a phone conversation first.
-It is a team effort. I am always open to ideas, criticism and input from each team member involved.
-I will treat you respectfully and with courtesy. I expect the same.

Jess Baul-Female Model
Having never modeled before, I didn't know what to expect nor what to do. Everything that involved modeling was so foreign to me at the time that I was beyond nervous that I wasn't gonna be able to give the team the winning look that they wanted. But if it wasn't for Lee's incessant encouragement and effective advice, not only did it make my first-time modeling experience a million times more relaxing and enjoyable, but we also managed to win 3rd place for TrendVision!! Thanks so much Lee! You're great!
Shay Rodgers- Female Model
As a novice model, I was nervous yet excited to have the opportunity to shoot with a more experience model and an excellent photographer. Direction was simple which made the experience easy and fun yet very professional. Thanks to Lee Cypress I now have my first tear sheet.
