Hi! I'm Aaron. Having taken an early interest in art, I studied painting, drawing and photography in college. I finally settled on figure photography, which I’ve been doing for 15+ years. My goal is to create imaginative, photos that celebrate beauty in new and different ways. I put the images into how-to books for other photographers.
Current Project: I am assembling a photo book of 100+ fine art nude and implied nude images portraying a variety of women and moods.

Good photos require effort but we also have fun shooting. Shoots start off with a clothed warm-up while we're getting to know each other's working style. This is especially important with new models. I don't talk a ton but I do give feedback. I will probably teach you at least one new posing trick, even if you've worked with 100 photographers. I've worked with 600+ models. I work hard to get us both the shots that we will be proud of.
Of primary importance:
1. Your positive attitude and high energy. Enthusiasm can be very impressive.
2. Your look, height, fitness, and clear skin.
3. Experience in modeling, dance, acting, etc. is helpful but not required.

I have worked with experienced models, plus plenty of girls who have never modeled before. There is a video on my website of models talking about the experience.
Pay: I am an artist. I don't pay workshop rates. I don't pay escort rates. I don't pay hobbyist rates. (Nothing against those practices). If your primary focus is real art modeling, you will be compensated fairly.
If you are a very experienced model, with clear sample photos and good references from previous photographers, you may skip the interview process. for new models, I will take a brief look at you in person. This is to make sure you have the physical appearance, enthusiasm, and commitment. We will agree on a public place that is easy for both of us to find.
TFP: I have nothing against TF* in principle. In most cases, if I can publish the photos, you deserve to be paid. The main reason I would do TFP: If you have the look, but zero experience and I think you need training to unlock your potential. I would follow with a few shoots with pay that increases with your experience.
