About MeFirst of all, thank you for stopping by...
Again, thank you for checking out my port. I am a photographer and I also have a photo-studio / production studio. My home base is Los Angeles but I also travel for work. I am very direct and upfront, and some people may not like that or be able to handle that but honesty is the best policy.
Love me or hate me you will always know where you stand with me...
Now that that is over, I have a true love for photography, but I enjoy exploring all of the areas of art & creativity. I do not subscribe to one style of art, my work is very versatile and covers many different areas.
For the people I work with I bring 1.Professionalism, 2. Integrity, & 3.Respect and I expect the same in return. My working environment is one that is laid back, relaxed, comfortable, and most of all FUN.
I understand that not every job is for everyone and that some projects are not appealing to all, so if I contact you or you contact me and ask about a project please have the courtesy to reply even if your answer is "NO", I am a big boy I will move on.
If you would like to seriously work with me here are a few things to know:
1. You don't have to be a professional but you must have some dedication to this.
2. Leave a message...TAGS & comments are nice, but I don't get the hints & I can't read minds.
3. My attention span is short...if I show interest in working with you & you don't reply, I'll move on.
4. I don't just take pictures, I tell stories through images.
5. Read my profile, it answers a lot of questions you may have.
6. Don't be too serious, but ALWAYS bring your "A" game.
7. If we can't communicate, then we can't shoot. Period!
8. Don't waste my time and I promise I will not waste yours.
9. Most of all: HAVE FUN!!!
On a side note: DO NOT have it listed in your profile that you only do "Paid Assignments" and then ask me to work with you for FREE.
******DISCLAIMER ABOUT WORKING WITH ME******
***VERY IMPORTANT PLEASE READ!!!***
General Shooting Requirements
I am very detailed and meticulous when it comes to my work. I ask a lot of questions and have a lot of communication with the models I am going to work with. I am fine with corresponding via e-mail to discuss a project/shoot. At some point before I shoot I expect to have at least 1 phone conversation about the details of the work involved, this is NON-NEGOTIABLE. In some cases 1 pre-shoot meeting is required depending on how in depth the shoot will be. If any of the above is a problem, then I suggest you move on and I wish you nothing but the best of luck.
If I am contacting you to work with you, it is because I think you have a look that will go well with whatever project I am working on. I will be up front and honest on what I am looking for when I contact you. I am NOT into surprises.
***Please note you will be expected to sign a Model Release***
PLEASE NOTE: If you look at my images you will see images of several different styles & genres, some including implied nudity and nudity. If I am contacting you about shooting PLEASE DO NOT assume that I want to shoot any kind of nudity with you. If that is what I am looking for I will say so when I initially contact you, as I said above I am NOT into surprises.
Outdoor Shooting: If we are shooting outside you can bring along any adult you like. If for any reason I get interrupted or interfered with by your escort, I will end the shoot IMMEDIATELY.
Most models I have worked with have not needed or come with an escort. When my shoots are in a studio NOBODY is allowed in the studio except the model, myself, and anyone from my staff including MUA’s & Hair Stylists unless previously approved. Studio Lights and Equipment are expensive to replace. I cannot work and baby-sit your escort at the same time.
