Hey! My name is Patrick Cheung, I'm a 17 year old highschool student from Markham, Ontario. I'm looking to gain some experience and expand my horizons through photo shoots and assignments.
I enjoy almost all types of portrait/people photography. I work both indoors and outdoors depending on the shoot. I generally like to capture my model through my shots. What does that mean? Well, I'd like their personality, likes, dislikes, feelings, emotions, etc. to show in my photos. I love meeting new people and getting to know them a little before each shoot so i can best capture who they are.
I'm comfortable with working with both males and females, give or take 5 years younger or older than me. I have experience with models my age or older. I also like to have an assistant with me on my shoots (usually an experienced friend) to help manage the area (as in keep strangers out of the shot when we don't want them there), manage the equipment (make sure nothing falls over, nothing breaks, nothing's stolen), and offer ideas to us. That said, I'm fine with my models bringing an escort (parent, friend, concerned boyfriend... etc.) to the shoot as long as he/she understands that I'll be directing the shoot, and that if they're going to be on the scene they should be willing to help out if needed.
Availibility: Since i'm entering grade 12 this coming september, i'll be quite busy. We'll have to work around the school's schedule (i DO want to graduate). I'm looking to mainly shoot during the coming summer, holidays, or long weekends. please contact me at least a week in advance, preferably two weeks so I have time to change my schedules and plan if needed.
