Currently I am splitting my time between my primary residence in La Verne (Southern Cal) and my getaway place up here in Mammoth Lakes. I mostly do sports photography (in particular canine sports) and landscape, but I have been shooting a lot more human models recently. In order to improve my skills in this area I have been taking courses at the Tri-Community Photography School. Completed courses include several in lighting, portraiture, and Photoshop. A nice side benefit of the school is that I have access to a fully equipped studio. I am quite comfortable with photo retouching and various Photoshop effects. I have included a small sample here. Many more examples of my work with canine sports can be found at www.lurecoursingphotos.info
I joined MM with hopes to find models that need somebody to help build their portfolios while I build mine. If you like what you see in my portfolio and would like to work together, send me a message. I am willing to do TF work as long as the shoot makes sense for both of us.
For TF work I will provide the model with digital copies of the images and also be happy to include retouching on a few. I understand there are a lot of questionable characters that pass themselves off as photographers, and models need to be careful. Feel free to check my references. In addition, I have no problem if the model wishes to have an escort present, whatever makes for a more comfortable environment.
