About MeAfter many many months on here and looking over many different profiles of different models and photographers, I have come to some conclusions.
1: Some of the people on here are the most polite, kind and/or generous people EVER. They are very free with compliments and praise, and that is nice.
That leads to conclusion 2.
2: After looking around, I feel I am good enough to get paid for my work/time. I've invested A LOT in education and equipment, so I am not just some GWC.
I will shoot pretty much anything, but I will NEVER ask a model to take off her clothes or do ANYTHING that would make her feel uncomfortable. EVER!!
The only way I will do any TF work from this point is if I contact you or have been in contact and discussion with you about a shoot prior to this. If you come to me with a specific concept that you want and think I would like to have in my portfolio, I will definitely consider it. Location, wardrobe, hair, makeup, etc is yours to have in place and all you need me to do is set up my equipment (if anything more than camera and attached flash is needed) and shoot.
I have no problem with escorts, and frankly; if I were a young, beautiful model, I would NEVER work with a photographer that states that they refuse to work if one is present or won't book a shoot knowing the model brings one. Bring one, don't bring one, I don't care. But if you do, and they start interfering in ANY way, I will give one warning and then the session will be terminated. One exception to the bring one, don't bring one statement: I will not book a shoot with anyone under the age of 18 that does not guarantee they will bring an escort. It they show up for a shoot without one, there will be no firing of the camera. :)
My business is focused on engagements and weddings, family and senior portraits, maternity and newborns, and sports (any and all). I will however, photograph models that want to do fashion, swimwear, lingerie, etc etc etc, or if you are an actor or actress that needs or wants updated headshots.
I guarantee my work. If you and I work together, you will get images you will be proud to take to an agency, on casting calls, etc. Send me a message and we can discuss rates.
One of the most important things I HATE to even have to bring up, but I am very much aware this is NOT a dating site or place for hook-ups. I am VERY happily married to my best friend. If I send a message complimenting your portfolio, your look, your hair, eyes, etc; it is simply a compliment and not an attempt to get laid as some people on this site seem to think. It's really too bad that there are those out there that have even made this an issue.
Thanks for looking, and best of luck in your career.
