Before reading any further, know that I can take good photos of just about anyone. But the model has to be there... The model has to show up. Industry standard is 24 hours notice if you need to cancel. So if you're not serious about modeling, don't waste my time. No offense meant if this doesn't apply to you, but Model Mayhem has a widespread reputation for flakey models and it's been my turn a few times now to experience it myself.....
I am a full-time photographer. I make my living doing photography, retouching, and fine art printing. Occasionally I seek to update my portfolio on a TF basis with selected models, MUAs and stylists. You will receive free of charge several digital files of beautiful shots for web use. Fine art quality prints are available from me at cost. Please don't ask me to provide a high res CD or provide my 40MP raw (unedited) files as this is not industry standard for TF.
On test shoots: Most of my tests are based around the styles, moods, or shots that have inspired me at the moment. The concepts are usually not difficult (not like some you see on ANTM challenges :) but this still means the models need to be comfortable in front of the camera. I do photograph beginners sometimes.
I've never had a problem with escorts, tho it's been a long time since any model brought one. Our goal is a professional shoot that will produce images that benefit the portfolios of everybody involved.
I do photograph children, but a parent must be present.
Look forward to meeting people. I love the thrill of getting awesome shots!
