Here are some of the basic things that you need to know when shooting with me.
1) I will shoot you however you like, the content of all shoots will be up to you. You tell me your comfort level and that is what we will shoot. I will suggest but sorry I don't own a gun to force you to do anything against your will. Check number 2 and please feel free to ask any model that I have shot with for references.
2) You can bring an escort if that makes you feel more comfortable. I have a girlfriend and all I want to do is shoot.
3) I consider myself an artistic shooter. I like to create shots using natural light. I do not have a studio and all of the lighting. I use natural locations and the light that is given me. My term for glamor is still using natural light but without shadows.
4) I love b/w work but will shoot in color if needed.
5) As far as photoshop goes, I suck, but I am getting better. So if you feel like you have lots of things that need corrected on you I am most likely not the person to shoot with. I can correct the little things.
6) I like input from whoever I am shooting, photography is a 2 way street and I want you to have the photos that you like also. If you don't tell me I can't help you to the fullest extent, I am not a mind reader for what you want.
7) To any model if you don't see you work on here it is because of me, I did not create worthy enough shots to showcase, it has nothing to do with you.
8) I give you the entire shoot when I am done editing. You are just as much a part of the shoot as I am so you should have all of the images, so if I have the image you will have the image. On that same note the way I edit is to lighten and darken the shots to my liking, as mentioned in 5 I will correct the little things but I need to know the shots that you want to use for your portfolio. I don't want to spend time correcting the little things if you are not even going to use the shots.
9) Even that I have had over 1,000 things published and when I say published I mean the things that you can find in bookstores or in stores. I only do this as a hobby. I have my regular jobs and I work my shooting around my working schedule, I need to pay my bills also. Also along those same lines if we schedule a shoot please show up or at least give me plenty of notice if you can't. I am sure that you don't like people to waste your time.
10) If you do a no call no show please don't bother to contact me again, a shoot will not happen.
If you have any other questions please feel free to ask, otherwise lets shoot.
