My name is Ben. I am a glamour photographer and film producer with over 20 years of experience in production. I am always looking for new talent to photograph. I am fun and easy to work with... and fast! I like meeting new people and having a good time. But, I am not a crazy partier. I am actually more on the mellow side. Very easy going and into good conversation.
MOVIES: I am also involved in producing and financing low budget horror films in Los Angeles and Arizona. If you are an aspiring actor, feel free to send me your information.
ESCORTS: Escorts are allowed to bring you to the shoot and pick you up after the shoot. They are not allowed on the set or inside the studio during the shoot. They can wait in the car or outside. No exceptions.
PAY: I only offer paid work to models. I feel I get better responses and better work when I pay the model. I also feel you should be compensated for your work. In return I expect your professionalism and timeliness. I am also far more selective in choosing who I work with, if I am paying them. The rates I pay are as follows: Bikini/Lingerie/Glamour = $50/hour. Topless/nude = $100/hr. Penthouse or Hustler style nudes = $150/hr. If you have a name or reputation that makes you feel you are worth more, we can discuss that.
Because I am paying you, I own the photos. So, please do not hound me for the photos like you would on a TFP shoot. I will release select images from the shoot and send to you when ready. But, you receive them as a courtesy, not contractually.
CONTRACT: I do have a standard model release that I must ask you to sign, as well as requiring two forms of I.D.
TRAVEL: I do cover travel expenses. Air travel in advance. Accommodations are also provided either at a model house or a resort/hotel/shooting location. I always provide photos of the accommodations. i work with models from all over the country and internationally.
I ALSO TRAVEL TO EUROPE/ASIA: Specifically, England, Germany, France, Hong Kong, Thailand.
I do insist on speaking with you on the phone and getting to know the model before I shoot. I need to make sure we will get along. Sometimes, there is just no chemistry and I believe this is essential in a photographer/model relationship. I may also ask to meet you before the shoot for a coffee on neutral ground somewhere, if you are local and/or Skype, if you are not local.
I also shoot video during shoots for my protection and yours. This is never used for any public consumption.
Please feel free to contact me on here. Thank you.
