About Me

E I studios is a progressive artistic Studios that specializes in Lingerie, Artistic Nudes, Nude imagery, cutting edge imagery. We also do Portrait work, Pin-Up shoots, and specialty shoots. I enjoy working with both seasoned professionals and also beginning models. I love to teach and hope that anyone who leaves our studio has an excellent feeling of accomplishment and that they have created art.

I work with Scott Hodges of ScoHo studios in Eustis, Florida and together we try to create imagery that isn't seen anywhere, See our recent Honey Shoot pics in the portfolio. We treat all models with professionalism and respect, and in turn we expect the same from models.
I can and will do more edits or high-res images for paid shoots, especially "portfolio development" type shoots where the model is looking for images to start or freshen their port.  My rates are very reasonable! 

One more thing on TF*:  TF isn't "free".  It's a trade.  My time, experience, talent and investments for yours, to benefit us both.  If a project is being done for my port and won't benefit yours, I should be paying you.  Same is true the other way around.  The only way TF is fair is if everyone involved benefits.  And at any rate, it's still a professional shoot, even with no money changing hands, so please treat it as such.  Communicate clearly about your expectations and any problems, and I'll do the same. 

    We are always looking for the edgy or unusual shoot, not the same thing you've seen on MM a thousand times. If you have a great idea I'd love to hear it. If your looking for a paid shoot, and we do get them from time to time since we do alot of commercial work, please be respectful if your not chosen, it isn't personal, it's business.
You might not be the right size, look, hair color, there is a multitude of reasons that go into choosing models.  If you aren't into Nude art, please refrain from browsing my portfolio. The US is the only country I know where nudity is treated as taboo. There is an inherent beauty to nudity if done right.

We don't do spread shots or "pink" shoots so please don't ask for them. We just choose not to do them as they don't fall into the realm of art for me, I have no problem for those who shoot it, just we don't.  If you shoot with us you will get edited images for your time spent within 3 weeks unless otherwise agreed upon. Paid shoots are moved to the front so understand that we have to prioritize. If you look at our portfolio and like what you see, contact us. If it's not what your looking for I wish you the best of luck on MM and remember to always be careful, your safety is more important than a few prints.
Some important questions answered for you:

Prefer use of full studio but will consider location work for follow-up shoot.  A wide variety backdrops, props, wigs, costumes, wardrobe items, and jewelry available.  We will be  going for a variety of looks via make-up and hairstyle changes using a collection of feathers, jewels, ribbons, glitter, paints, etc.

Will be interested in helping you with your special projects, just discuss them with us.  We enjoy working with all models with no limitations based on the lack of experience as long as they demonstrate professional ethics - The ability to keep their word.

For models willing to travel to collaborate as a creative team member, we do offer the chance for extended shoots( 4 to 6 hours) which would help maximize the return on images for their investment of time and travel expenses.  We have found that distance is only relative to each individual model depending on the value they place on getting great images.

**  As photographers, we are interested in all genres.  As we allow the model to participate in the planning of the shoot, they have the decision of the genre they want or need for their portfolio, as well as, the decision on the amount of editing/finishing done on their images.   Our portfolio contains more head shots and artistic makeup as this is what the recent models have been requesting.  If you want something different, just let us know!


Policies in regards to models:

* Photo IDs of model and escort will be required .

* Model release is required, copy available upon request.  Must be signed prior to shoot and includes all images taken unless discussed prior to day of shoot.   

* If an escort is required to remain on site, they can me either male or female.  Significant males may bring you to the location, If you choose to shoot with us, you are doing so because of the images you have reviewed in our portfolio.  We will always try to have you as prepared for your shoot in order for us to be able to capture the same quality of images. 

As a model, you should never be too anxious in planning a shoot, Some photographers may shoot with one idea in mind with shooting lasting 1-3 hours. In our typical shoots, we go after 3-5 looks with a change in hairstyle, makeup and wardrobe with each look.  Typical shoot will last 4-6 hours although some have lasted much longer. 

Scott Hodges from Sco Ho Studios and  will be with me at all times in order to prevent models from making any  false accusations and also to provide another amount of security for the models..  I do not touch models unless first asking to move the model in a particular way.

We reserve the right to cancel a shoot before even starting if someone brings an escort who expects to stay inside the studio after the shoot begins.  To get the best images, you must be able to focus 100% on the camera, not distracted by someone waiting on you.  The best images are obtained when a model does her due diligence in vetting the photographer and has developed a comfort level and a self confidence in her decision as it shows in the final image. All Escorts may stay in the waiting room adjacent to the studio for your safety

* SHOW UP ON TIME!!!   More models than not DO NOT take participating in planned shoots seriously.  All photographers who provide free test shoots have trouble with models who do not show.  Models will be excited about shoots, correspond for 2-3 months in some cases, planning the shoot in fine details.  They will confirm their attendance the day before and just not show, not responding to texts or phone messages.  We have models text us they are running an hour late and then do not show.  We do understand that unexplained events can occur but do expect at least the respect enough of being notified.

If we have not been made aware of a delay and the model is more than 30 minutes late, we will interpret this as the model has canceled her shoot.  If you show up more than an hour late, we reserve the right to not continue with the shoot.  We take your shoot seriously and invest hours into planning for it.  We also reserve the right to refuse to shoot if you have misrepresented yourself in your profile and portfolio.

* Please come to your shoot after getting proper rest the night before.  It is extremely hard for the camera to hide the fact that you are tired.  It doesn't make sense to be out partying, etc. until 3-4 am and expect to get great images over a 4-6 hour shoot.

*We do not shoot nudes unless  the model is over the age of 18 with proper age documentation.

* FREE TESTING (TF)* Shoots mean trade of the model's time and travel expenses.  We do not cover ANY expenses as we may assist with makeup, hair, and wardrobe.  In addition, it typically requires 4-5 hours of time per hour of shoot editing and finishing of images.  We do not pay models, as providing a free test shoot is offering a shoot at a significant discount from our regular fees.  The only time models are paid is if one of our clients is paying us to do the shoot and has it in their budget to pay for the models and their expenses. We also will only ever use models whom we’ve shot before for paying gigs.

TO SUMMARIZE YOUR FREE TEST SHOOT:

To find models who truly make the best creative team members and thus potential partners in E I Studios and image projects. Sample images will be shown and projects described in detail at during shoot. There will be a discussion period before the shoot starts to make sure we are getting your imput and finding out what you like and dislike about yourself. The shoot is only successful if there is a connection between the photographer and the model.

* Test shoot will involve the trade of model's time and travel expenses for images

1.)  A FREE test shoot (TF) shoot from which you will receive all raw, proof images in reduced size on Digital Dropbox or email.. 

2.)  We provide at least 2 FREE fully edited/finished images per set(outfit) which typically means 8-10 or more fully edited images per day of shoot as we shoot typically 4-5 sets per day of shoot.  The vast majority of models receive more images than promised.  Please check with references!

3.) These free images will be the best images from each set and will be based on your input.  You will receive a copy of every image we would edit and finish.  We will ask you to choose your favorites but do reserve the right to choose other images which are similar to your choices but that will edit and finish better.  For many models asking to choose their favorites is almost an impossible task as there are too many great images to choose from.

4.)  For models who cancel a TF shoot with a reasonable reason and reasonable time ahead will be asked to reschedule once and only once. If you can not be professional in your way of handling shoot commitments then we are not interested in working with you.

5.)  Models provide makeup, hair, but at times and wardrobe assistance is available  as long as the model is open to assistance and is not too picky.

6.) We are unable to help with traveling expenses due to the time spent during editing process and the money spent for accessories, makeup, etc. to help each shoot be distinctive , travel from out of our area (25 miles or from greater),   We might offer gas assistance, wholly up to our discretion.

* Only edited, finished images with our watermark may be printed or published online.  If we finish a different image for our portfolios, you will also obtain a digital copy of this image or the series created.
