I actually went to school for this stuff! I'm always up for shooting interesting and artistic things with the right models, and I'm looking to improve my portfolio to a very high level. I love working with creative people who have fun ideas of their own. I can help models develop their portfolios as well, and I'm known for shooting all day long and in any weather.
I am seeking models who are at least 5' 8" tall, with a thin build, to do test shoots with. These are the only trade shoots I'm doing right now. All others please contact me for my rates, which are very competitive with other photographers in the area. But you get to work with me!
I'm also shooting Zivity sets now, for those who are interested in that style of photography.
Please follow my new Tumblr site. This has a lot of NSFW content.
The best models come to Kansas City to shoot with me. I'm compiling a list of photographers in the area who pay models to shoot with them. If you'd like to be added to this list, which I will give to traveling models who would like to come to Kansas City, please send me a message.
Would you like to learn how I work? Would you like to come to one of my shoots? Would you like to see how I get the looks I get in my work? Send me a message and we'll set something up. Rates will vary, from carrying my equipment at the low end to bringing your own camera and shooting my scenes at the high end. I can also show you how I work when postprocessing.
Note: I already have an assistant. This offer is only available to those looking to hire me.

From a recent conversation with a model I worked with.
"You are like a machine - you are like a god - you rock my world big-time, babe...."
"Dammit steven you make it so hard for me to choose what photos to put up cuz they are all so cool -shakes fist-"
"god, you suck. i don't have any more room in my portfolio!"
