I am a on location photographer with 15+ years' experience. I wholeheartedly enjoy what I do. A retired soldier with 22 years professionalism. I provide digital images NOT prints to my clients. Contact me, let's talk and work out a fantastic session.
~ You get a professional photographer ~
I am not a low budget video director, pretending to be a photographer.
I am not a club owner, pretending to be a photographer.
I am not a DJ, promising you industry hookups etc.
I do not make unheard of internet magazines or web sites to entice you.
I do not over process you in photoshop to make you look plastic...that's not art.
I do not insist you take nude photos for a well balanced portfolio...nonsense.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ MODELS BEWARE ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
> Beware of "Guys with Cameras" photography is over saturated with non professionals! Guys that only want to take booty photos?
> Beware of the guy who wants to pay you to model and his work looks like garbage...out of focus, body parts cut off, and poor lighting!
> Beware, of the guy who has turned his home into a studio and only shoots Eye Candy photos and offers YOU items to wear during the session...CRAZY!!!!
> Beware, if you are modelling for PAY, you WILL NOT receive any photos, you are being paid to model ONLY...prints/CD cost YOU! The "Guy" with a camera leaves this bit of information out when you show up to shoot.
> Beware of the "Jack" of all trades guy...does everything but can't master one thing! The Videographer, Photographer, Web Designer, Fashion Designer, Retoucher, DJ, Auto mechanic etc.
> Beware of the "Guy" with a camera telling you photography outside is hard work...modelling IS hard work, photography is hard work. It's all work to make you look your best so it's worth it!
* Models DO NOT get lost in the small amount of money some hack offers you *
* A TRUE PROFESSIONAL RESPONDS *
If I contact you I think you possess a exceptional quality that I would like to photograph. I offer my talent once, if you can not professionally respond...my expertise will not be offered for free in the future.
Before contacting me consider the following:
~ I DO NOT PAY models or PAY for gas.
~ I DO NOT give out RAW, unedited images. You receive professional images!!!
~ I DO NOT shoot in rented hotel or motel rooms.
On the web:
The Professional Creed
A MODEL RELEASE IS A REQUIREMENT. You MUST consent to be photographed. You will receive a usage agreement with your CD indicating images are for personal portfolio use, ANY other use requires my written consent. I embed my copyright within the EXIF METADATA of every photo I take.
I conduct an informal meet and greet BEFORE any photo session, getting to know each other on the set is not my style since we both have to feel comfortable as well as have a firm grasp of what's expected. The vast majority of true professionals on MM understand this concept, others not so much.
