About MeLooking out for new top-notched partners worldwide: models, make-up artists, wardrobe stylists, hair designers, etc. For a complete portfolio and other contacts please check my website and www.facebook.com/edgarkeats
More than 10 years of experience gave me some cool features, specially working with people. I do photography because I am an artist and I love what I do, and not because I need to pay my loans or get rich. This is my art and I do it with all my heart. Of course I'd love to be paid all the time for all the jobs, but working for TFP with the people I feel that have the same passion as I have is the best way to keep connected to the world.
Contact me for my standard rates or make a very creative proposal, I'm all eyes and ears.
If I added you to my friends, this means I see a chance of working with you in the future. If I haven't responded to your request, means the opposite. Anyway, send a message if you have any doubts.

COMMON SENSE WORKING RULES
concerning to all the team: photographer, assistants, make-up artist, models, wardrobe stylist, hair stylist, etc.
There are no "free" shootings. There are only two options:
a) you are being payed for a shooting created to promote a brand, or
b) you are trading your best performance for something else. For an effective and successful shooting it's better to exchange your best for the best of everyone's involved. This means that everyone needs to be professional and aiming at a higher target - we all have to live, we all have to eat and we all have bills to pay - but for the most of us, a good portfolio means we can achieve more important works in the future. Without it, most people just won't believe we are capable of something we've never did before... I am speaking for myself and I believe this is your case too, at least if the employer isn't your relative. If this is your not professional stage anymore that's great, but please keep our communication clear and polite. It's quite unfair when models ask me for traveling fees, because I'm not asking for money to pay all my gear and believe me, cameras, lenses and lights and way more expensive than your fees.
Be on time, I'm very picky in schedules, I won't accept bad excuses for being late or missing the shooting. If you don't show up at all, you'll never see me or hear from me again.
No drama-queens. We are together to have fun and make something remarkable, every problem has a solution. Be a professional, probably you won't have such a cool team to work ever again.
Don't come with an escort: mom, dad, husband, wife, boyfriend... We're all professionals and we don't need babysitting in our work. If you don't trust me or my team, then it's better not to work with you.
No diva-like attitude: every single team member will be treated like any other professional, with proper manners and education. I cannot allow a new leadership in the group just because someone thinks he's/she's better than everyone else. At least, not in my shooting.
If I send you an e-mail or a private message, a reply from you is required. It is very rude not to reply if someone really wants your answers to their questions or proposals. I rather read a "no thanks" than not reading nothing at all. I reply every mails or messages in 24-72 hours. It's a matter of principle - Respect to be respected.
In our early communication, we'll be briefing the whole shooting concept. If you have any doubts about it please ask BEFORE we set all the things up. It's important that we can establish a trustful team, without it we'll be wasting our precious time.
No drugs or abusive alcohol consumption during the photoshoot. I don't care about your private life, but please let me out of it.
