I am a professional photographer I Have more links to my work at the bottom of this "about me section". I am extremely passionate about dance photography of all genres. My business currently concentrates on weddings, portraits, fine arts, fashion, boudoir, and model portfolios.
But I find myself consumed with the desire to shoot dance and primarily ballet.
At the top of my list of types of work to shoot:
I desire to collaborate with:
-Models.. (especially those trained in dance)
-Clothing Designers.. (High Fashion not Street or Urban)
-MUA's.. (High Fashion and Wedding Day Looks *I am a successful wedding photographer so I love to find other quality vendors to suggest to clients)
-Hairdressers.. (High Fashion and Wedding Day Looks *I am a successful wedding photographer so I love to find other quality vendors to suggest to clients)
I will do *only selective* TFP for dancers, and a few projects that I am personally very excited about. But please understand I am very busy with my work.... I work/photograph throughout the nation including NYC and Chicago and am established in the genres already listed so it is unlikely I could be tempted to do other types of TFP.
However.. once in awhile I do have an idea for a stylized shoot and if I am pretty attached to the concept, and if I don't have a client who is a good fit for the concept.. I may look here on MM for the right person.
You are welcome to solicit me for other genres besides dance (It doesn't hurt to ask)
(And I may be willing to trade work with ppl such as Hairstylists etc.).. I am just being honest that more than likely I will only take paying gigs if they are not for dance. My model sessions are nonetheless very affordable esp. for the quality. :)
If you are a photoshop wizard, you need not apply as I am one as well. (I am not offering that service), and I will never outsource any aspect of my art. My work is very personal and I am very concerned with every detail of it.
I would like to note that I desire to work with people who carry themselves with grace, poise, class, and are respectful. This is what you will find in me and I very much appreciate it in others.
I am looking for variety of looks including: Couture/Feather eyelashes, Edgy/Mohawk, Ethnic/Esp. East Indian, Classic/Grace Kelly types, and those who have European Features. I am attracted to UNIQUE beauty... I would LOVE to work with some porcelain skinned redheads. I am interested in working with men and woman and with individuals and groups.
Thank you for taking the time to read, if you are a dancer I would LOVE to hear from you!
Best Regards to all!
I have done hair and make up on about 50% of my work.
I have stylized shoots from concept, to props, and outfits on at least 90% of my work.
I have shot photography under the names:
