I appreciate the time you spend reading my Profile and viewing my Portfolio.
I am a freelance photographer and I work through many different venues.
My main objective here has been and always will be to photograph interesting people in different venues. Along the way I hope to increase my skills in Photography. I love portrait work. Model Mayhem has given me many opportunities in this area.
So that is why I am here.
Paid photo shoots will always take priority. I have been lucky to increase my commercial work this past year that includes Book Covers and Magazine covers along with Ad work and have my images included in local establishments to decorate their decor.
Because of expenses and limitations related to health I am limiting my photoshoots and Travel to the Burlington-Graham and surrounding areas.
This coming Year I want to focus on Calendar Themes
Autos and Bikes
Outdoor Power Equipment
Anyone interested in modeling for some of these themes, please contact me
I am lucky in the fact I do not have to depend on photography to make a living. I have a regular job that pays the bills and allows me to expand and follow this semi-pro and semi-hobby of mine. But I still have to cover expenses.
I only have a few rules for my photo shoots and I believe in having fun along the way. Life is very short and we may as well enjoy it while we can.
1. If we go through all the neccessary details to set up a photo shoot.... Show Up!
2. Before a shoot I do require a contact # and an email address to confirm and go over details
of the shoot. I will email a copy of my release form to you to look over and if you have questions
I will be happy to answer them.
And no..I do not care about your personel life. I am not here to try to get a date or to take your images to see you naked.
I am here to photograph you and produce the best images I can for you and myself.
3. Escorts are welcomed and in fact, encouraged to come with you. This is especially true when working together for the first time.
Providing they stay in the background and does not interfer with the shoot itself.
4. I will respect you as far as the time and effort you put into our photo shoot, and I expect the same from you.
5. Read #1 again !!!
I know new models have anxiety and nerves, I make my shoots as easy as possible for all involved.
If you have cold feet, think again about what you want to accomplish..then decide
If you have a spouse of a significent other?? Make sure they are on board with your modeling career. Nothing will get you a bad name quicker than not to show up or have a tempermental boyfriend-girlfriend and you can't fullfill your promise to the photographer.
I read profiles on ModelMayhem and look over portfolios all the time. If I leave a post on an image of yours then that means I liked it and probably wished I had taken it. And if I offer to shoot with you..then that means I really would like to work with you.
So this is my profile and I have images you can go through if you like.
I thank you for the time you spent reading this.
I hope to work with new models this year and models I have worked with in the past.
You can reach me here and I will get back to you soon. I promise.
