Mayhem # 2145331
About MeI'm an American working in Warsaw for an international organization. I've been shooting for over 6 years trying to perfect the art of portraits, people, fashion and the like.
I consider myself an artist, so my hope is to attempt to create images with other talented individuals that evoke originality. Everyone I know would agree that I am a free spirit or a hippie; I typically am referred to as a "modern day gypsy." Creativity, hope and a sense of humor are goals that I strive for. So when you shoot with me, it's guaranteed to be an easy-going, smiley, good time!
I've traveled and lived in all sorts of places all over the world, so my style is a bit different than your average photographer as you're welcome to notice.
For now, I only offer TFP, and am not paid for any work arranged on Model Mayhem. This limits my ability to pay for things such as studio rentals, MUA's, wardrobe, and long-distance travel.
What do I have in mind? Since I'm asked this quite often typically unless I've asked for something specific, all I have in mind is that the shoot will be casual, fashion, glamour, alternative, or swimwear at an outdoor location appropriate for the outfit style.
I am open to shooting at model-arranged indoor locations and styles such as lingerie, topless, implied, and nude (both female and male) though this would be at the model's request only, and preferably not as the first shoot. However, I'm open-minded.
As I've learned from experience, a typical photo shoot should be given room for at least an hour and on average yields 150+ images, with about 10 selected for editing. For most outdoor shoots, I've found that the best starting time is about an hour before sunset, as to catch the in between times, for perfect lighting.
