Mayhem # 178397
I've been on Model Mayhem since about 2006 and I have worked with hundreds of female models and over a dozen male models in and out the studio doing casual, portrait, fashion, glamour, and some artistic or implied nudes. Some were doing it for fun, some went on to making it a career in print and film. I do shoot for the fun and creativity aspect of it.
I do not do as many shoots off this site as I used to due to other priorities but do selectively do shoots.
My main website is http://www.grilleflamestudio.com/

I am also on OMP as Photographer # 161991; but don't regularly update it.
I currently run the South Central Alaska Photography Group (http://www.scakpg.org) as well as regular participate in several group shoots listed under Great Alaskan Photo Shoots on Facebook.
What I really enjoy and have the most experience doing casual or non-standard portraits of people; usually in the outdoors. I regularly do Sports, Wedding, and Nature photography as well but hands down enjoy photographing people the most.
I am always looking to meeting new people and the building my own portfolio, though I am most happy when I am doing photography work on a regular basis. I am interested in various forms of TF* work or mix of compensation and TF* depending on the shoot, the model, and their experience.
I shoot indoors, outdoors on location, as well as have an in home studio. I will also shoot outdoors in almost any weather as long as the model is game and it will not get either of us in legal trouble.
Each year I make a point to take at least one photo roadtrip to photograph models in other areas of the country, so if I am contacting you and you are not in Alaska I may be thinking about coming your way.
I also do photos for people for the enjoyment of it without a modeling release under special arrangement. So if you are interested in modeling in exchange for private photos I cannot use publicly or in limited circulation I am also interested in that arrangement sometimes as I just enjoy photography and the opportunities it provides.
I want to photograph females, males, and couples of all shapes and sizes. This includes modeling of individual body parts (hands, feet,etc. with and without tattoos / piercings, jewelry).
Note: Though I do shoot nudes, I will not ask a model to do them unless you explicitly express an interest in doing them or have done them before.
No matter what type of shoot we do, I can provide a safe environment and my conduct to be professional. I welcome and encourage non-distracting chaperons to be along for the shoot and will respect what you are comfortable shooting. I also never touch a model unless explicitly asked to help with something or given explicit permission to do so.
I ask that anyone I work with show up On Time, and communicate if you are going to be late or cannot make it in advance. If you fail to show I will be less likely to recommend you, nor will I give you a compensation job until you make up that time with me.
As of March 2015 I am looking for two things in particular:
1) Models and couples for specific projects I am working on.
2) New Faces and Looks.
3) A model to regularly work with that is up for random photo experimentation to see what type of photo we can get in studio, intricately planned shoots, as well as quick random locations we may find.
Talk to you soon,
Note: I am not one to heavily Photoshop my photos, which I realize is common these days or essential to others style. It is not mine. I do this for the photography not to sit in front of the computer making people look 'unreal'. I do some basic adjustments and touch-ups but rarely go beyond that in 'enhancing' photos. I generally also only accept friend requests from those I have shot with, plan to shoot with, or personally now. I do not accept friend requests or generally respond to photoshop photo retouchers.
I have worked with the over a 100 different models many multiple times and I always am on the lookout for new faces.
