My name is Doug. I'm an amateur photographer, by choice. I've been into photography for over 30 years. I've been shooting with models since 2005. It's a great creative outlet and I enjoy collaborating with models on projects.
I took some time away from shooting to deal with some family health issues and personal activities. I look forward to returning with a vengeance!
I work TFCD (Time for CD). I want to help you add good shots to your portfolio. Please don't set up a shoot, then demand cash payment. It won't happen. If someone wants to pay me to shoot with models, I will make sure they are paid as well. Otherwise, you will get photos that you would not get if I had to pay you for your time. Worst case scenario, you get some practice!
Scheduling a shoot - Since I do this in my spare time, that time is precious to me. Please honor your commitment when we schedule a shoot. If you can't make it, please call as soon as you know. I will contact you a week before to confirm our shoot and again 24 hours before. Communication is critical. If you do not communicate, I will move on to others who will.
Styles - I enjoy shooting in styles of Old Hollywood, film noir, and pinups of the 40s and 50s. I have learned techniques that allow me to convincingly emulate these styles. I also enjoy shooting contemporary fashion, fitness and location. Want to try something? Ask me! I am always open to try new things. I enjoy sharing ideas. There are very few things I won't at least try.
Nudes - Yep. I sometimes shoot nudes. I am proud of the work I do. However, it seems every time I place nude images in my portfolio, people think I will REQUIRE nudity at my shoots. Nothing is further from the truth. Why would I want to do something you don't want? The discomfort will come through in the final images. It's a no-win for everyone. My goal with nudes or near nudes is to work with light and form to create sensual images. If someone looks at one of those images and the first thing they notice are genitals, I've failed in that photo.
Escorts - I am happily married. I am not looking for "dates". I am old enough to be the father of the vast majority of models on this site! My wife is normally in our house where I have my studio. She is a great detail and idea person. I have a deputy sheriff next door. I want you to have a safe, fun and secure experience here. If you really need to have an escort (and I understand having a travel companion for the road trip), I would much prefer a girlfriend to a boyfriend/husband/significant other. I am not worried about them being jealous. I am more concerned about you, the model, being more interested in them and not the task at hand.
I don't promise fame and fortune. Those who do are blowing smoke up your skirts. What I do promise is I will do everything reasonably possible to make your shoot comfortable and enjoyable. I will get your images to you in a timely manner. I look forward to shooting with you and hope we both enjoy it enough to want another shoot. Now that's a compliment!
