I am a freelance editorial portrait photographer located out of Somerville NJ.
My goal is to work with local talent to increase interest in modeling and art in the area. I have worked with experienced and first time models and achieved the same outcome quality. I know when to take the shot and when something is contrived. I can coach models how to flow and pre-shoot prepping is very important for new models.
Studio space is available for headshots, video tests, and model testing. All other shoots I prefer working in ambient light with rich scenery. It just adds life to the session even if it's not in the shot.
-Rates range from $99-$400- Free shoots available for certain looks and concepts.
**Testing (TF) shoots are welcome but exclusively invite only feel free to message me.
I do understand this is a business for a lot of people (myself included) however that's no reason to make it less fun. I am looking to work with fun, energetic women and men who are passionate about their trade and love to create works of art.
*NOTE ABOUT NUDES: I do not expect any model to be comfortable with shooting nudes so I do not typically ask unless it's paramount to the concept and if the model is not comfortable I'll find one that is. Also note that if I am set to shoot a nude concept that it will never be pornographic and will always be tastefully done, well crafted, and beautiful (no stupid "naked on a bed" snapshots or any other ridiculous garbage like that).
