I've been taking pictures of people since i was 16. I started doing it for a living when I was 20. Now i'm 27 and love it as much as I did when I was 16. Models are my favorite to shoot, but animals are a close second.
NOW DOING FREE PORTFOLIO SHOOTS
These following rules are for nudes/semi nude and implied nudity. These are the only shoots that need guidelines. For all other shoots just remember this: I am a professional and I expect you to be the same!
If you contact me for work (letting me know you will be near me and would like to work with me) please remember that I USUALLY (but not always) do not need models. I'm NOT trying to be rude AT ALL, but it's rare that a random person has the look i'm looking for. I USUALLY find models on here and then contact them for work. I almost always have a certain look that i'm looking for when I shoot.
If you contact me to shoot nudes for you please have a few on your page so I can see what I will be working with and what I need to do to bring out the best in your body. If you request nudes and have none, please do not flip out if i ask you to post some or send some. I am NOT a random perv on Model Mayhem, I am a PROFESSIONAL Photographer. I have been doing this for almost 12 years and could care less about owning a nude picture of you. (Once again not trying to be rude)
If I contact you for a shoot please reply with honest answers, do not tell me what you think I want to hear. If you don't shoot nudes, please don't tell me you do. Please do not set up a shoot with me and then not show either. I get paid pretty well for shoots so if i'm paying you or doing a free shoot please act like a professional and show up on time and ready to go.
I shoot mainly models for fashion, artistic, fitness, glamour, pregnancy and promos. As being as I get those kind of shoots 24/7 I mainly look for nude models or semi/implied nudity models. But I will help out models who need any kind of shots for their portfolios. These shoots are always free and I will in NO way pay for a model to help them out with their portfolio. I will NOT say I paid a model (to make them look like they get paid work) if I did not actually pay them.
I WILL do nude pregnancy shoots, I will even do them open legged. I will NOT do a nude mother/baby shoot if the baby is over 2 years of age. I will NOT do nude family photos if the baby is over 2 years of age as well. I will NOT take any pictures of a nude family that I do not see as being accepted as art. I will shoot breast feeding pictures up to the age of the child being 2. Please do NOT contact me if your child is over 2 and you want any of these. I WILL shoot implied or semi nude photos of families with kids up to the age of 4. These pictures would only show the butt of the child and/or parent. It can also show the breast of the child, mother and/or father. NO pubic regions are allowed AT ALL if the child is above the age of 2.
ANY Erotic shoots I do will not show ANY penetration. Penetration is ok in the shoot, but I am not a porno photographer so it will not be the subject of the shoot nor would it very noticeable IF I do agree to it. Sex is a very natural thing and is ok to shoot, but like I said, i'm not a pornographic photographer.
Fetish shoots are the same, I will NOT have penetration of ANY kind be the subject of a shoot. Implied penetration is ok. (allowing the viewer the know what is about to happen without showing it)
Lingerie shoots are just that, lingerie! I do not want your nipples or vagina to be the subject of the shoot. If your nipples are able to be seen that's ok as long as it's not the subject. If your vagina is hanging out that's not ok, but if the pantie set is see through it's ok.
FREE PORTFOLIO WORK:
If I agree to shoot you for your portfolio please be aware I will also being using my work with you for personal stuff as well. I may end up using your pictures for promo pics, business cards/fliers, or as samples of my work. If I make money off of your photos YOU make money off your photos. I am NOT saying this WILL happen, but it has happened in the past. There are times when I'm showing a client my work and they end up loving a certain model. If this happens I will contact you and set you up with the client. What you do with that client IN NO WAY has anything to do with me after me introducing the two of you.
If I agree to do a FREE portfolio shoot PLEASE show up for it. If not I will post your model id number on here as UNRELIABLE.
If i agree to do a shoot for free of any kind please keep an open mind and trust my artistic views. If you do not want nudes, but I think an implied nude shot would work out then please realize I'm only doing what I think is best. If ANY pics end up showing anything too much for you I will NOT use them.
You are ALWAYS more then welcome to bring people to the shoot with you. NO boyfriends. Boyfriends almost ALWAYS cause issues during ANY shoot. Guy friends are ok as they make models feel better. Please do not bring anyone who is going to slow down the shoot in any way. This means someone you do not want to see you pose nude/semi nude, someone who is going to make you laugh the whole time, someone who is going to try to tell me how to do my job (unless it's another photographer) or someone who is on their own time limit.
Once again I am a professional, I do not like to joke around about my work.(although I am a goofball as a person ^_^) Please do not contact me if you are not serious.
