If time is taken to schedule you and a shoot is agreed to and all set up, DO NOT BAIL OUT AT THE LAST SECOND. It is so incredibly rude and unprofessional to waste someones time and bail out at the last second. It's happened to me like all photographer before me and I won't stand for it anymore. Not the day before and not the day of. If you need to reschedule or have a legitimate excuse (unlike your grandmother being sick) then we can work around it. But nothing is more infuriating then letting your own insecurities get in the way of my work and more importantly, you wasting other peoples valuable time! Consider this the only warning I will give you on the subject. I'm not being mean i'm being honest!
I have worked and still work professionally for several companies within broadcast television, film and even professional sports teams. I've worked commercials, feature films, concerts, political rallies. Essentially everything you can think of doing professionally with a camera, i've at least tried or have had some experience with.
I've been working professionally for about five years and I am here to say that will never change, in every and all aspects of my work.
I do not work with the fanciest equipment.... so if you're expecting a large luxurious shoot, I can do that but photography should be much simpler than that. I don't like a lot of flash, style or makeup and I just want to see who YOU are in front of the camera.
The way my shoots go is simple, I hold up a camera, you talk and I take photos. Every model i've ever shot was in the middle of some type of conversation between triggers. You'd be amazed what cameras can see and we can't. It's why I do what I do.
Point being, i've worked on the largest productions you could possibly imagine and i've worked on the smallest. Whatever comes out, comes out. You can't force it and I don't aim to.
I use all natural light and all natural beauty. It's as simple as that.
