I have been a photographer since 1983. I started A and D Studio in 1993 and moved to it's current location in Mentor in 2012. I work in studio, outdoors and on location to capture the right image for each shoot. I specialize in working with fitness competitors, new and aspiring models. I also enjoy collaborating with more experienced models. I am always looking for new and different ideas for shoots.
I offer very limited TFP shoots and my rates are very reasonable. New models who want to learn the business are always welcome. I have started a lot of models careers over the past few years.
I have a studio and a warehouse space to shoot large groups, motorcycles and such in as well. I also enjoy shooting outdoors (I started in in the business as an outdoor photographer) I am seeking to widely diversify the portfolio for the studio with new themes and styles. Models, if you have a creative idea you want to try shoot me a message and let's see if we can create some amazing images.
I do allow an escort at my shoots if you choose to. Please don't bring anyone who will be disruptive to the photo shoot though. They will be asked to leave if disruptive.
If I send you a friend request it's most likely that we want to work with you. Please send me message and add me as a friend if you are interested. Thanks!
Feel free to contact me for a list of models if you would like references from models I have worked with previously.
I DO NOT PAY MODELS and that includes travel expenses for tfp shoots! Please do not solicit me for paid work. Look at my work and only contact me if you truly think that you can enhance my portfolio and we can raise the level of both of our portfolios.
I generally edit 1 photo per outfit/location on a tfp shoot.. sometimes more.. and I will happily give you copies of any edits I do. Turnaround time ranges from 24 hrs to 1 week depending on how busy I am. If you want images other than what I provide from the shoot they can be purchased on an individual basis.
CANCELLATION POLICY: Any photo shoot or studio rental cancelled with less than 48 hours prior notice is subject to a $100 cancellation fee. This includes TFP shoots!
