My goal is to create visually rich and arresting images that either offer skewed thoughts on society, provoke an odd story in the viewer's mind, or simply capture beauty.
My shoots are sparse: no $1000 camera or fancy lenses... no mueslin backdrops... no light diffusers. I use just as much as I need to get the style of shots I like. As such, my shoots are suited for models just beginning as it's a very non-intimidating process. Experienced models have commented more than a few times how they enjoy my style of shooting as it's not "the usual".
Instead of searching for models who conform to a certain size or have an abundance of experience, I prefer to shoot models who have more personality in their appearance, models who appreciate my work and feel it could be fun to explore, models with a great sense of humor and models who like to work outside of the box. I love collaborating with people who appreciate art.
If you're interested in shooting, I will work up a detailed list of photo ideas for you, which you can then read through and decide which ones you'd like to try. My work ranges from tame to wild and I will never expect you to work outside of your comfort zone. However, since everyone has different boundaries, I find that working out ideas before a shoot is helpful in defining the areas we can work together in. Not everyone wants to get messy for a shot!
When we have enough accepted ideas to complete a shoot, we can schedule a time to get together! This way you will know exactly what is planned ahead of time.
You will never be asked or expected to pay anything for a shoot. I will always pay models for their time based on a sliding scale that takes into account amount of time spent on each idea and wardrobe.
Bringing along an escort is fine, but they must behave themselves and not disturb the shoot.
If you are under 18, you MUST have a parent/guardian at the shoot and you will only be considered for costumed and beachwear ideas.
