Photographers selected for The LIST serve to help models get started on the right foot, give them a sense of what to expect in the world of freelance modeling and offer them exposure to our community and the world at large. Shooting with a LIST photographer also qualifies newbie models for entry by the photographer into the Newbie Model of the Week competition.

Welcome! Thank you for taking the time to view my profile.
I have been involved in photography at some level for over 30 years and have really refocused my efforts over the last 4 years. I love experimenting with new and different looks and techniques and work best with models willing to do the same to produce great images.
I think the best images are produced when there is a true collaboration between the photographer and model. My goal is to bring out the personality, emotion and expression of the models I shoot with. I have many concepts but really enjoy when you bring your concepts too. I want to produce images that will benefit both of us.
My rates are reasonable, just inquire. At this point I am shooting very limited and selective TF. Preference is given to new models suitable for submission to "The List" Newbie competition and models agreeable to shoot material for my art concepts.
Things to know about me:
1. I value your time and would like the same courtesy extended in return. Please return communications in a timely manner and be on time...
2. I prefer to discuss concepts and shoot details prior to the shoot. Phone calls and emails are fine. If you would like to meet prior to the shoot I'll be happy to do so within the limits of my schedule.
3. I have a great selection of outdoor locations. I also have a fully functional studio I can set-up in my home or I can bring that same set-up to your home/location.
4. For the typical shoot you will get at least 2-3 fully edited images for each hour we shoot.
5. You can choose to either have me pick the images for full edits or I’ll post a selection of images from the shoot from which you can pick your edits. Final edits are emailed to you in "upload" size. On request I can also provide hi-res images on a CD/flash drive for you to print for your book. My goal is to have the disk to you within two to three weeks of the time you select your edit images.
6. I value your input so don’t be shy…..tell me what you would like to shoot. I am interested in your ideas.
7. The model gets credit unless otherwise requested. Anonymity is always an option.
8. I require a full model release for TF shoots. Please let me know up front if this is an issue.
9. Feel free to bring a friend, assistant or escort to the shoot. My only requirement is that they not interfere. ANY interference or distraction and the shoot will be over.
10. My rates are reasonable, just inquire. At this point I am shooting very limited and selective TF based on my needs and availability.
No Fly-by friend requests! I typically won’t respond unless I get some other form of communication. Comment, tag, message, something.
PERSONAL NOTE: I am happily married (30+ years) and not interested in anything but producing the absolute best images we can produce together. I enjoy producing great images and art. I am more than happy to help new models if their look meets my needs and equally enjoy working with experienced models. Nothing satisfies me more than taking images that improve a models portfolio and helps them get more recognition.
A word about TF……
There is sometimes a misunderstanding about what TF means. It is a trade of valuable time, skills and resources. The model provides her time, talent, and resources (wardrobe, make-up, etc) and the photographer provides his/her time, talent and resources (cameras, lenses, lights, backdrops, props, and other equipment). It is also important to note that in addition to the time the photographer and model spend communicating prior to the shoot and the time of the shoot itself, the photographer must spend 3-4 hours of editing for every hour of shooting. So for a typical three hour shoot, the photographer may spend 10-12 hours editing. This is a point that is sometimes missed in the evaluation of value provided.
