About MeThere is no more beautiful light than that provided by God, best used to see His creation..
Part time, traveling photographer with many years of experience, and an unrelated day job that pays the bills. I've worked with nearly 20 models from MM to date, so plenty of verified references.
After paying many great models to gain experience and build my portfolio over the years, I'm now focusing on compensated or trade work. I pay models for specific projects that I'd like to add to my portfolio. I'm very reasonable on trades and compensated shoots. Thus far, I've provided edited images for every paid model.
I do this as an artistic outlet, and I have invested thousands of dollars in time, equipment and services. I enjoy contributing to a collaborative artistic efforts, and I certainly don't mind being compensated for my services. However, I do not care to "donate" my services for your commercial gain. If it's of commercial value to you, then it's of commercial value to me.
Residence of the devil aka Details:
I typically shoot when traveling on other business, which means I normally shoot in hotels. Hotel rooms as a "set" may sound questionable to many models, particularly to new ones, however my entire port was shot in this way. With the right room and the right equipment it can work well. I keep a reasonable amount of support equipment including lighting, stands, backdrops and props at my disposal.
A few general rules of thumb to expedite the 'deal':
-Model Release, Proof of Age/Identification, References: Required.
-Escorts: If required, are preferred as meet and greet, and absent during shoot. Escort Reference required. I have references right here on MM. I will check yours on MM, it's good practice for everyone.
-Generally, no RAW or unedited images will be provided.
-Most other things are negotiable.
Three general types of arrangements:
-I retains copyrights.
-I generally provide some images, at my discretion unless negotiated up front.
-I will provide a personal, non-commercial release upon request.
-Agreed upon quantity of edited images provided. Select unedited images available.
-Photos are provided electronically, HD resolution as a minimum, higher available.
-Commercial Use License provided upon request.
-I retain copyright unless additionally compensated.
- It's trade, let's negotiate....here's some typical arrangements
- Typically 10 edited photos of your selection. Additional unedited images available.
- I will provide a Commercial or Non-Commercial License upon request.
-I retain copyrights
I'm casual and unhurried, but serious about a quality product and an enjoyable experience. Expect snacks, shorts, T-shirt and bare feet ...Did I say casual?...
And if you're wondering, I'm happily married to same person for decades, w no plans to change, so no worries in that area. More salt that pepper, more shine than salt.
