"The reason why people miss opportunity is because it comes dressed in overalls - and looks like work" - Thomas Edison
Good day and thank you for visiting my page. My purpose for using Model Mayhem is to network with people in the industry as well as those who are trying to get their foot in the door. I can shoot both outdoors with natural light as well as indoors. My studio is located in the NoDa area of Charlotte, not far from downtown.
When working with me, I request a face to face meeting first when applicable. The purpose is so that can I know what you look like. Of course, you have images that shows me what you look like. But those shots are based on the bias of another photographer's eye and perspective. "Go see's" are apart of the industry and allows us to get to know the personality of the model and see if they have what we are looking for to represent our concepts. If you are not in the Charlotte area, then as a minimum I would need a "plain Jane" shot of you, which you can take with your cell phone and email it to me. The shot will be a front head on shot and a profile. If you have long hair, then please send an additional shot with your hair pulled back into a pony tale. This allows me to understand what I need to do from a lighting perspective, as well as what I'm going to have to do in the post editing process in Photoshop and Lightroom.
I do TF's on a limited bases an my guidelines are simple. You must come wardrobe and makeup ready. If you need an MUA, I do know a few who are experienced but they do charge. TF or not, models will sign a model release form. The form explains that I own the rights to the images and you are being afforded a license to use the images we agree upon for portfolio purposes only, and my not be resold, used for stock, or manipulated or altered without written consent. I do not give out all the images on CD. I am a professional and the request for them will not be dignified unless you pay for them as professionals do, or be bringing something to the table worthy of all the RAW files. TF ≠give away the rights to every frame good bad and indifferent. Please keep in mind photography is my professional business and not my hobby. I do like to a keep a light and fun atmosphere, because I believe we should enjoy the process. I'm an extremely positive upbeat person, and also down to earth. Lets network, lets build, and lets make images that will leave a lasting impression.
More images can be viewed on my website or via Facebook via "Unbounded Images" If we've worked together feel free to add me under the name Majidmuhassanfoto.
