I hire models for very specific shoots. I typically contact them, since I'm seeking a specific look.
I am available for hire. I work in a 6,000 square foot, two story photography studio in the Vista in downtown Columbia. We have the capability to do nearly any type of shoot, including video. See http://www.sandrewsphoto.com for more info.
I am willing to do TF work in special circumstances. If you want a full scale shoot with all the bells and whistles, you would be better off hiring me or another professional photographer. But if you want to do something fun and quirky, just ask.
Professional photographer, 16 years of commercial & fine art experience. My work has been shown in galleries nationally and internationally.
Photo shoot info:
Bring somebody, don't bring somebody, I don't care. Drink, smoke - I probably will. Whatever helps you get loose. Be prepared to hang out for a couple/few hours though. I'm slow.
You'll have to sign a model release to protect us both. We'll agree to the terms and usage beforehand.
About your images:
The turnaround on the images I give you may be longer than what you are used to. There are a few reasons for this, so consider the value of what you get. I do advanced editing at full resolution for all of my images. Each shot represents a couple hours of post processing, to perfect every little value and hue and detail. But that means you can make prints that are big and perfect looking.
What I am looking for right now:
Alternative nudes - Suicide Girls type of shoots. I am looking for small framed 18-24 year old (or who look that age) girls with alternative looks, including tattoos, piercings, Emo, Scene, Goth, etc. to do nude shoots. If you are taking off your clothes for a shoot, I am typically going to pay you - that seems fair.
Elegant portraits - I'm updating my portrait/head shot portfolio. I do portraits with dramatic lighting that are not very typical these days. Lots of low key (mostly dark with a few highlights) images. I'm more than willing to do this TF, because I need to update my portfolio. But once I get it updated, it's back to paid only! The good news is, you don't need to be particularly good looking - models of all shapes, genders, and sizes are great!
