If I send you a Friend Request its most likely because I find you interesting and would probably like to work with you in the future. If you don't accept it then don't expect me to contact you when I have work.
I keep my friends list as a data base on models to work with. None of them are mere drive by requests to have more friends. If you would like to add me......send me a request I will take that as an interest to work together as well.
A word to the Models.......if you FLAKE on me even one time I will never book you again and I will let any other photographers that I know that you are a flake on shoots. I am very flexible but some models just don't get it....
I am a very experienced Professional photographer that has worked many years in the Glamour and Fashion industries. I have worked around the country and coast to coast. Currently I am updating my portfolio and always looking for new fun models to work with. I sometimes do TFP but that's on a case by case basis. If I do work TFP you will get a disk very promptly of the photoshoot. I am selective on who I do TFP work with. But it doesn't hurt to ask. I do not pay models just to shoot.... I only pay a model if it is a COMMERCIAL shoot where we are both getting paid. I have too many models that want to do TFP work with me than to just throw money to a model for pictures that I don't plan on selling. Please don't hit me up with your rates and expect me to shoot with you..... I'll just give you my rate sheet back and you can wonder why I did that..
I have placed models in some of the top magazines and in Agencies all over the world. I have discovered models in some of the most unlikely places. I work with beginner models as well as the more seasoned ones. But I do not put up with a bunch of attitude. I am super easy to get along with..I expect the same. Remember its always easy to find another model for a project....
If you want something Unique for your book that is not the run of the mill, I would be glad to get you what you are looking for. I am also an accomplished body paint artist. Hit me up for details on the body paint and I will be sure to send you where you can see much more of that. Body Painting is a main focus of a lot of my newer work.
I am NOT escort friendly unless they are supposed to be there working.....just had too many problems with that issue over the years. The answer will be NO and this is NOT negotiable. If you can't take an escort on a movie set......what makes you think I would allow one either? I'm a professional and I expect the models I work with to have the same work ethic. The only exception to bringing an escort if you are paying me....you can bring 5 for that matter. But if you insist on bringing an escort then I charge a $100.00 escort fee so I can hire an escort to watch your escort.
I do not like spending weeks going back and forth in e mails.......if you want to shoot lets meet up and Shoot. If you do not check your MM account on a regular basis then give me another way to get a hold of you.
If you would like to see more of my work let me know and I would be glad to send you to my website as well as references.
Oh and one more thing.....If I get another request to do a Lady Ga Ga themed shoot you will be laughed at and made fun of.
