*** Time-for-photo requests only ***
- I have no interest in paid assignments & won't accept paid gigs here.
- I do NOT charge for my photography services through this site.
My goal here is to meet and work with interesting/creative people and enjoy the experience of people photography. I'm in photography as more of an artistic outlet than to make money.
I am available for sessions with male or female models who are trying to develop a portfolio. I enjoy working with creative people and will *always* be open to your ideas or suggestions. I feel photo sessions should be an open collaboration between the photographer and model and be laid back and fun for everyone involved. I'm willing to travel to nearby cities (Nashville, Knoxville, Atlanta, etc) even for time-for-photo sessions.
A few quick notes:
Nudity (male or female) - I don't have any objections to photographing nudes, but have no experience doing them. I'm open to gaining experience but it isn't something I'm actively searching out.
Escorts - I appreciate the need for female models to have an escort. However, please limit it to a single person. Also, I usually suggest a public location when first working with a new model of either gender.
"Friending" - If I send you a friend request, I'm interested in photographing you. But I probably won't assume you want to do photos just by accepting my friend request or by sending me one. So if you're interested in a photo shoot, please feel free to drop me an email or post on MM to let me know.
CONTACT and additional info - My website is www.chiptalbert.com. Feel free to contact me either through ModelMayhem or at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in working together.
Photographic styles I'd like to explore:
General modeling photography - I've recently took the step away from mostly natural light photography and would like to practice strobe lighting with both men and women in various locations and styles.
Bodyscapes - classic low key black and white / non-nude.
Tattoos - I've never shot tattoos but would like to expand on the bodyscapes idea to focusing on tattoos. I'm especially interested in doing a series of photos with tattoos that have a special meaning to the wearer.
Faux wedding - I'd like to have the chance to do photos with a model in a wedding dress. Real weddings are so limited because of time and other concerns. A plus would be also having a model dressed as a groom.
Vintage clothing - There is just something so cool about the 40-50's style.
