How to work with me...
I am only doing very select TF* at this time, and almost exclusively with models I have worked with previously. What TF* I do offer is primarily for personal projects, conceptual series, and works produced for national/international photo competitions. If you are interested in any of these areas, please keep reading...
CURRENT TF* PROJECTS:
The Roaring Twenties - Stills
January 2012 marks the return of The Roaring Twenties series. I am seeking males and females ages 18 to 30 for this project. Interested individuals should be comfortable with the following themes/requirements:
Alcohol use, cigarette use/smoking (simulated or real), simulated drug use, implied/nude posing, working with multiple models, and ability to exude a playful attitude in all the above.
The Roaring Twenties - Video
Yes, in addition to the stills, production will begin on The Roaring Twenties - The Video Series in 2012. Same rules apply as above, just with moving pictures this time.
Seeking males and females ages 14 to 24 who are active in sports. Due to copyright release requirements, parental attendance is required for persons under 18 years of age.
Seeking two males ages 18 to 22 for a staged fight scene.
Super Secret Project 1
Seeking males and females ages 18 to 30, lots of ink preferred as well as being comfortable working with multiple models. This project will have a dark theme but not of the blood and gore sometimes seen here on MM.
Seeking males and females ages 18 to whatever for fine art, B&W bodyscapes. Collection will be comprised of nudes and non-nudes (see examples of non-nudes below), however, all subjects should be comfortable in their skin as you'll pretty much need to be nude to get the shot.
About Tests/TF* and shooting with me in general:
I believe in professionalism. I am dedicated to my career and am only interested in working with those who are equally dedicated to theirs. With that in mind...
There is no acceptable reason for missing a scheduled shoot, not even death (find yourself a replacement before going into the light). Ok, so I am kidding a little here (not really). This goes double for first TF*/test shoots since it will make up the whole of my opinion of your reliability. Should you find yourself in a situation that will cause you to be late or miss your shoot (Like if an elephant is sitting on your foot), good communication is paramount! Let me know as soon as possible, keep me updated, and never feel you are calling too often (I.E. The elephant twitched, maybe he’s about to stand up). Good communication really does go a long way!
