I'm a photographer based in Charlotte, NC. My rates are reasonable. I prefer to shoot TFCD but I also accept bookings to give you a unique look and I will consider paying you to model if you are experienced and have the photos to back it up.
You will never be asked to do anything that is outside your comfort zone and an escort is always welcome on a shoot to watch or assist you. I have access to local studios if needed. I also have my own studio gear with portable power and can set up appropriate lighting on location shoots just about anywhere. I shoot only with professional full frame bodies, professional series lenses, and off-camera lighting as needed.
If you are a model seeking payment for your services in money. Realize that the fee you charge is your compensation. You may purchase as many prints or social-media-ready files from your paid shoot as you wish, but you won't be paid in money AND photos. If you want your photos, we'll shoot TFCD, or you can pay ME and I'll deliver high-res photos to you along with a print release. Fair is fair.
If you travel for a TFCD shoot, I will cover your travel and shoot-related expenses.
I typically shoot on weekdays during daylight hours. Weekend work must be booked in advance and is generally paid work - but we can talk.
I enjoy shooting Fashion, Glamour, Portraits, Boudoir, and outdoor events, including weddings. I also shoot civic and sports events, so I'm pretty varied in my tastes. Check out my Flickr site for recent pix. I also have another website at www.rontencatiphotography.com

MODELS BEWARE! There are many photographers on MM and Facebook that are just smooth talking Guys With Cameras who just want to see you naked for no good reason. Please check references and check with other photographers in the local community before you do a shoot with any photographer you've just met on Facebook or Model Mayhem. Don't become a victim of exploitation! Photographers should take your picture, say thank you, and say goodbye.
I value quality over quantity. These are models with whom I've shot TF or as part of a meetup group:

2014 US Olympic Bobsled team member
I have many other paying clients who are not listed here.
