I am a Professional Commercial Photographer with more than 20 years of experience and I have started work in portrait Photography in the past year.
My immediate goal is to expand/update my Digital Portfolio with new and more diverse images.
I accept and offer TFP if it will help both our portfolios, with that being said my rates are very reasonable.
I am currently seeking amateur and experienced models of all genres that are open minded, pleasant, fun, reliable, honest and who are willing to collaborate and share ideas. I prefer to work as a team to create inspiring and dramatic images for our mutual portfolios.
I enjoy working with anyone who is interested in being photographed, regardless of size, shape, experience or age (see note). As part of the creative process, I like to show the person or persons who are being photographed the images taken during the shoot as it progresses. I find this is beneficial to everyone by allowing poses to be redone, modified, or eliminated.
If I contact you via a tag or friend request, I have looked at your profile and portfolio, have seen that you are talented, you would be a good candidate for image ideas that I have, and I would welcome an opportunity to exchange ideas and create some great images together.
I am in the Lynchburg, Virginia area and I will to travel out of my area for photo shoots if necessary, please contact me for details.
NOTE:Â I prefer not to shoot with those less than 18 years of age. Exceptions would be that if a young model has a specific project to accomplish. Examples of this include but are not limited to shoots for Senior Portraits, Proms/Special Events, Portfolio Creation or to add to an existing portfolio, etc.
Should we agree to do a shoot, I would require that the model bring an escort and that a Parent or Legal Guardian sign a Model Release.
If you are more than 18 and want to bring an escort, I have no objection. I ask that the Escort participate in the shoot only if asked to do so.
Please note: "I do not shoot nudes as a personal preference"
