MUAs and Retouchers.....please do not reach out asking me to hire you. I do my own makeup and retouching.
There is a lot to me and why I do photography. It's to much to put into words. I love this business, I love the people I have worked with, and modeling photography has always been very exciting to me. I work primarily in the DC-Virginia-Maryland area.
I usually do not hire models unless I'm being paid to hire a model for a specific gig. For situations that require you coming out of town, I will discuss pay and getting you situated with a hotel with you if necessary. If I do not contact you regarding a project, then please do not send me rates. I will do TF ONLY if I feel you are worth it and if it is for an idea of mine.......BUT don't be afraid to ask. I have a very busy schedule, and paid work always takes priority.....however....if we are collaborating on a project....YOU ARE my priority.
FOR TF WORK, VERY IMPORTANT YOU READ THIS, AND PLEASE UNDERSTAND THAT THE STATEMENT BELOW IS MADE WITH NO EGO OR ARROGANCE INTENDED.......
I am always looking for models who are into edgy or fierce work involving crazy hair, make up, high fashion outfitting, etc. I have a deep appreciation for models who enjoy connecting with their photographer and challenging me at the same time. That connection helps to make our work better, and prevents any confusion as to what is expected. I do look for expression in your portfolio, and if it is a bunch of boobs and butt shots, we probably wont be working together. Basically if your looking to do the pointing the handgun at the camera look, the cheesy bikini girl by the fast car, or the lollipop pigtail look......sorry....I'm not your photographer.
Please understand that if you are not comfortable in your own skin, we will not work together, I can promise you that. If you cannot do something as simple as wear lingerie, or do topless for head shots that will show your chest and shoulder areas, and I have to explain why.....do not ask me for TF, it wont happen. Sorry, I need grown up girls who are REAL MODELS, professional, and who understand the business.
I look forward to working with you, and please do not hesitate to ask me any questions at all.
