Do you want to spend your whole life talking about being a model, or do you just want to model?
Hi! I'm Jeff, and I've been making my modeling, bridal, and portrait clients happy for more than 25 years. I'm always looking for new people to work with and new places to shoot! Photography and the creation of art is truly EXCITING!
My new passion is working in the genres of boudoir, glamour, and pinup art. I would like to try broadening my style and working with a model that wants to submit sets to SGs.
It is very simple to setup a shoot with me---> You can start by messaging me here, or sending an email to RVAGlamour@gmail.com I ask that you contact me only if you are SERIOUS about shooting and are 100% sure you are going to show, for me to put aside several hours for you is a big deal. I've had several models flake out on me after I've gone to great lengths to reset my schedule... NOT COOL, DUDE!!! Send me a message, I'll give you the number, call me, show up, we'll get great photos and everyone is happy.
Any collaboration will be TFCD unless I contact you first, or I'm involved in a commercial project with a budget.
On Escorts: I have NO problem with you bringing an escort. In fact, I encourage you to bring one no matter who you shoot with. It will give you peace of mind and it will protect my reputation at the same time! If you do bring someone along, please bring a female friend, or at leas a male friend that you are not romantically involved with. I find that most boyfriends are usually just bored and ready to leave, and if you have a jealous one, well... I just hate dealing with those types of people when I'm shooting. As a PLUS, a female can help you prep for the shots and be an assistant, it's great experience and exposure for your friend and you both will gain knowledge from it!
*** Know a pro from a wanna-be with a point and shoot. Have a phone conversation or meeting before you shoot, I think you will find that shooting with me is a fun, relaxed, and creative experience. ***
Everything I do is above board and upfront. My time is as valuable as your... please respect that!
SPECIAL NOTE TO NEW MODELS - Do yourself a favor and get a professionally done PORT! This will be the first impression everyone will have of you. If you think cellphone pic's from the bar or kitchen or shots by your friends on some point & shoot camera will do then your are sadly mistaken! Hire a PRO... most of us want to try new things & experiment with a new style/product before we try to sell it to a client. That gives YOU the opportunity to do a nice TFCD/P job with only time & travel invested. I guess I'm just tired of browsing & seeing good looking models with nothing more than crappy low grade Instagram or Facebook photos in their port... if you're serious about bettering yourself then get off of your a** and do something about it!!!
If you are inexperienced and have little to no formal training in modeling then working with an experienced professional photographer can offer you valuable experience and education that you cannot receive anywhere else. Do not discount this when considering a shoot... leverage the photographer's help and build great things from it!
If you want to be taken seriously, as in being a professional, you do need professional photographs in your portfolio. Just look around at the ones who already model for a living, their images are professional ones not self shots or cheap armature images.
I hope to work with YOU soon!
