[ Note: I am only available in the Bay Area for a short time, as I'm making one of my annual visits from my home in Panama. (I used to live in the Bay Area.) So please contact me (or reply to me) quickly for the best chance for us to work together! ;) ]
I'm looking to collaborate with creative models and other artists. I want to make great photos, try new angles, new lighting, new everything. I want people to think 'that's a great photo', not 'that model looks pretty' when they view my work.
Let me invite you to check out some of my recent work at:
This profile is for my more edgy work and shoots. My main profile is at http://www.modelmayhem.com/adriano
I'm excited because I feel I've started growing as a photographer in new directions over the last year or two. While I started out studying photographer as a kid in New York, I never want to stop learning and trying new things with my work.
Models have told me they like the way I look at things differently than other photographers, finding interesting elements to work into the frame, like the ax that was lying around in a model's backyard in one of the photos in my portfolio here.
I look forward to working with new and experienced models. Please contact me through ModelMayhem.
