Friend Requests: Please introduce yourself first through a message. I'm friendly, I promise; I just want to make sure that you're not a friend collector. Friend requests without a message will remain untouched, unless I personally know you.
Just say hi, that's all it takes.
Rates: I do TFP/TFCD, depending on if I'm doing film or digital. I do both, but I work with digital a lot more.
Tell me if you'd like RAW format before we shoot, and if you'd prefer unprocessed images I'll gladly provide them. Sometimes I use heavy processing, sometimes I use none, but I always keep originals in tact.

I have access to a decent light kit with colored gels, I usually prefer natural light.
My space to shoot indoors is limited, because I rent a room and am not a millionaire. I make up for it in creativity.
Other services: I have a wacom tablet and photoshop, and can clean up images for you. If we've shot the images together, it's free. If I didn't shoot them, it's still very cheap. If you're not happy with them, I won't charge.
My partner and I do candid event photography separately from this. Note this does not mean formal wedding portaiture. Contact me here for more information if you're interested or would like to see examples. We shoot for close to nothing and are very willing to negotiate for print credit or exposure for ourselves.
I worked for a school portraiture company for two seasons, have been doing event photography for three years and am always looking to learn more through classes and experience!
I've done portraiture with friends and family on the side for a long time, and so my camera-side manner is friendly and slightly informal. I find that it's better, because expressions tend to be more genuine and the subject is free to contribute to the final project.
I don't pretend to be an expert, but will take any project I have seriously and do the absolute best I'm capable of.
