UPDATE 2014: Ask me about "Sign-Pics", it's a new style that is perfect for girls seeking supplement paid work.
My name is Jim and I am an amateur photographer (just a hobby) local to the Bay Area in California. My work is a little different than other photographers in the sense that I'm not actually trying to land the perfect shot or enhance our careers. You don't even need to be a "model". My services are more of a "flash-for-cash" gig (FFC) as opposed to a professional shoot, but EVERY shoot is a paid assignment. I usually work with the girls that arent quite committed enough to make this a career, but still want to do a paid shoot, even if they don't have a portfolio together. I currently have 8 girls that work with me roughly once a month for supplemental-income. It's just safer to pose for someone that isnt sharing the photos if you're at all nervous about it, which is the case for the majority of you that write 'no' for nudes.
Perks: ALL my models wear masks. What does this mean for you? Discretion if you want it.. no one else needs to know you posed if the secrecy aspect is important to you. It just happens to be the theme to my portfolio, girls in masquerade style face masks. Also, you can literally have NO experience, in fact I've come to learn that less experience is more preferable when it's just 'Flash-for-Cash', girls that arent looking to enhance their portfolio.
Another perk is that ANY body-type is welcome, there are no restrictions. Looking through my material, I seem to be most in need of girls who fir niches like: Ethnic (darker skin tones), Asian, redheads, very tall/lean, very petite or very Voluptuous. However, everyone's beautiful in a different way and we can make a set work that is custom to your attributes.
So, if you're in search of a way to step into the business and earn a little money with some 'practice' shoots.. I'm probably a perfect gateway photographer for you. Even if you have no aspirations to make modeling a career, it's still a very easy side-job. There's no funny stuff on my shoots, your safety and comfort level are a priority. Im happily married and am respectful by nature. I live in the Bay area, so it's not inconvenient to shoot anywhere between San Francisco and Monterey. Also, I'm sometimes able to conjure a location (indoor or outdoor) but I'm free to work anywhere you'd be more comfortable. Costumes and Props are custom to the individual, so we can talk about them after I get an idea of your shape and chemistry.
Just message me here if interested, I'd be happy to discuss the work.
