[b]My main interest is male photography, . I do fitness,artistic, and nudes. I believe in the experimental, and think everyone should be photographed at least once in their life.
.....,[b]ALSO I do not give "raw" images for "outside" use, all images are copyrighted by "original" photographer and are not to be used, reprinted, or manipulated in any way without expressed written permission by.....DAVISICON/BILLY JOE DAVIS .....retains all rights to all photographs. If you've always wanted to be photographed, don't wait any longer. Remember everyone's idea of "beauty" or "interest" is different, you are welcome to contact me to see if I can photograph you, you do not have to have a profile on MM to contact me, so please tell any friends you think might be interested in being photographed. Perhaps I can bring a new "look" or "perspective" to your portfolio.......and for those that have expressed interest and have complimented me on my simple style of photography, I wish to THANK YOU for your kindness it is greatly appreciated!, I try to to do my best to work with what I have...... You should also be photographed by several photographers to show your range because each photographer has a different vision they wish to express! I also do "Testing"/"TFI" when its mutually beneficial, just ask..... I am also available for Private Hire photo sessions and Head Shots, I also do "your location" sometimes etc.... I also believe the less you have to work with, the more creative you can become. I prefer simple shoots with outdoor lighting. and REMEMBER additional "advice and comments" can be found here
I am hoping to meet new people that would like to be photographed and or provide a "fresh" look to help their portfolio "gain more interest" , IF I HAVE CONTACTED YOU, IT IS BECAUSE I BELIEVE I CAN ADD MORE INTEREST TO YOUR PORTFOLIO. I want to make "YOU" look your BEST! the better you look the better I look!

"OPTIONAL ADVICE" ?.......hmmmm for starters don't put so many of the same photograph, cut the "cool photos and gang looks" your not in high school!, and these aren't "class pictures", in the beginning avoid photos with others if possible , your the "model" not them, you want to have the "attention" of the viewer based on "your" look not someone elses. , add nice headshot, one with smile,one w/o, depending on body add several looks, formal, casual, swimwear, sexy, etc...make sure for some photographs you look into the lens and connect, show that your willing to offer a variety of looks and can be what they are looking for! ..........ALSO REMEMBER to always answer emails and return phone calls, be sure to check into this site at minimum at least once a week, if you cant commit to at least once a week for "1 hour" then reconsider being listed on here unless overwhelmed with modeling gigs, then please explain in your profile, never ignore an email it is very rude and word gets around!, if you are not interested in the "offer"?, then politely decline and explain a little why?, if possible ......"why am I speaking"?, because of the numerous emails I receive asking for advice....AS for the agencies that I'm asked about all the time?, the best thing I can tell you is , DO YOUR RESEARCH and check if models are really getting work?, dont be foolish in thinking an agency will keep you busy, ask other models what is being done for them?, sometimes its better to go it alone for a while and book your own gigs,etc...... ..........AND REMEMBER MODELS sometimes times are very good! and sometimes very bad!, so try and be kind to EVERYONE!.This stuff is designed to help you!........ GOOD REPEAT BUSINESS HAS BECOME VERY VALUABLE IN THESE TIMES, STAY IN CONTACT WHEN POSSIBLE AND DONT "BURN BRIDGES"...............NEED MORE?
