**Please only accept my Friend Request if you intend on working with me. Thanks!**
Hi my name is Ronnie, I'm a photographer/ videographer/ editor and as of late producer here in Los Angeles with a studio in the LA area. I 'm here to network with talent and find new and existing talent to work with. That being said if I send you a friend request it's because I am interested in working with you. So if you don't have any interest in working with me, please don't accept my friend request, really, you won't hurt my feelings (Boo hoo hoo, I lied okay!). Nah it's fine really! What's the point? I'm looking for models who want to work with me, those are the friends I want. Not a bunch of pretty faces that have no interest in my work at all or even modeling for that matter. This is not facebook, well at least it's not suppose to be anyway. Why associate yourself with me and my work or associate me with yours if we're not working together? I'm interested in quality not quanity! Don't get me wrong, I love people and I love friends but checking a box does not make us friends. So please accept only if you have intentions of working together, cool. Thanks! Now I am more than willing to help new models start or build up their portfolios, just be serious about your inquiry. I’m very approachable, very friendly, super patient and very easy to work with. All I ask is that you be considerate, if you say and commit to a shoot and say you will be there, BE THERE! Or just save me the time and trouble and go to someone else and flake on them! Or just pay for your shoot, then if you don't show it's on you and it's your dime. Okay by now I'm beginning to sound like a meanie but I'm not. Really!
Trade For, does not mean it does not cost someone something, shoots still cost money and time (which is also money). It is an exchange of talents for mutual gain. Bottom line, please just show some respect and professionalism show up if you tell me or any photographer that your will be there. I'm sorry but this sort of behavior is very trying, costly and absolutely unprofessional. This why I no longer provide a MUA or hair for any TF work.
So anyway, if your interested in testing for one of the magazines I'm shooting for (please be specific about this when contacting me and tell me straight out you want to test shoot for one of the magazines). Also if I approach you, I’m probably interested in shooting or testing you for one of the magazines or a calendar, just something to keep in mind. All models will be expected to sign a model release the day of their photo session, so if this is a problem for you please do not contact me or again, just pay for your session. I still do allot model portfolio development work. If you do ask for a TF shoot please state your area of interest: Beauty, Fashion, Bikini/Swimwear, Hair/Makeup, Parts Modeling (you will provide your own MUA for those), I will provide a MUA for the following usually, Pinup, Erotic, Adult, Art Nude, Implied, Body Painting (also looking for body painters) and Spokesperson/Host (I’m looking to put a TV show on as an extension of the magazines and make you a star...haha, okay not really. About the star part, I can't promise you that honestly but I am working on putting together a show and that might work in your favor.
As you can see from my portfolio I do Playboy, Penthouse to Hustler style nudes, very sexy lingerie and very sexy bikini for magazines (all magazine and calendar work that is nude is paid, all non-nude (this includes topless and implied) work is tearsheet only and sometimes paid, but you will get great exposure and credit for being in the magazine, calendar or website with a guaranteed tear-sheet, sometimes paid).
Thank you for visiting my profile. I really look forward to hearing from all of you and possibly working with the elite few of you very soon. Thank you for your time.
I'm experienced with commercial, fashion, beauty, glamour, artistic and erotic nudes, lingerie, portraits, headshots, model portfolios (allot), some catalog (clothing companies & designers mostly), website content, calendars, product photography and my own interest and artistic endeavors. I've been published in many forms from coffee table books, gallery exhibitions, photo contests, catalogs, websites, and magazines. I have worked for the likes of Victoria's Secret, Playboy, Penthouse to name a few. I know name dropping is sooo booshwa, but hey, some people here like to hear it, so I do it. I currently work for Penthouse and CBS Digital, internal sister company to CBS Networks.
