Just an above average guy with a camera...
Like many of you I have a real job...
Photography is an outlet...
Creativity is a joy...
Rebuilding and retooling my MM port. My first love is landscapes and nature photography...some examples of which can be seen on my Twitter account @WAM_Photography
A comment about Comments and Lists:
If I have created a comment-worthy image it means I've collaborated well with the model and "the we" have done exemplary work together. If you feel compelled to comment, please navigate over to her port and find the image (or similar) and brighten up her/his day with a comment/list as well.
If an image truly moves you and/or means something to you, whether positively or negatively, then feel free to reach out to me via email and I'd be happy to discuss it with you.
A friendly note about Friend Requests
Candidly I'm not here to make friends. Platonic friendships however can and do develop as a natural byproduct of working and collaborating. The operative word in all of the above being platonic. Therefore, I doubt I will send you a FR until after we have worked together. I will sometimes send a FR as a followup to a note that I have previously sent indicating a desire to work with you.
If you send me a FR I will take that to mean you are interested in working together. Please don't send a FR if you're not interested in working together. If you do send a FR please follow it up with a short note/email explaining what you'd like to work on and we'll take it from there.
Compensation and Copyrights:
If I pay you, then I own the work product. This is non negotiable. Following the shoot I will be happy to provide you with proofs/low res/unedited for all/most of the images from which you can select some images that you like for your port. I will process up to 5 of your selections into MM portfolio quality finished images. Additional images can be purchased or bartered through the "TF" process. All ownership and copyrights of all images, finished or otherwise remain property of the the photographer, including any images provided to you as the model. Meaning you do not have the rights to reproduce, alter, redistribute, blog, link to, post or repost, transfer to, or share with any third party without the expressed written consent of the photographer.
If we "collaborate" on a TFP/TFCD/TF-whatever basis, then I will share the proof images as well as the high quality jpg's exported directly from the camera raw .CR2 files. This is the reason to collaborate as many photogs would never do this...but if we are truly collaborating then I will grant you ownership and copyright privileges for any unedited high res jpg. If you prefer that I edit and finish an image for your port, then you can compensate me for my time (see note below) or I will retain the overall ownership and copyrights of that image.
If you pay me, aka work for hire, then you own the overall ownership and copyrights and the work product is your asset. As the owner, you are responsible for the overall creative concepts and design, any costs of which will be borne by you, and I will be responsible for execution to your satisfaction. As the photog, I will retain copies and will reserve limited copyrights for my personal, non-commercial use to include my portfolio on Model Mayhem and/or other online portfolios.
My Standard Rates of Pay (to/for models):
TBD/hr Bikini or Lingerie/non-nude
$75/hr Topless or Implied Nude*
$100/hr Artistic Nude*
$125/hr+ Erotic Nude* and **
* Must be over 18 and provide proof of age/DOB
** Admittedly its a blurry line between artistic and erotic. If you're not sure where that line is then we'll be sure to discuss it before we shoot and I will send you examples of where I think that line is, which may not be where you think it is...but the goal will be a common understanding regarding expectations for genre & payment.
Finishing & Retouching & Editing:
Its a skill and it takes time. If you have modeled in an image and/or we have collaborated on a TF project, and you want any additional images "finished" for your port (beyond the ones provided), then I am happy to discuss PayPal payment options and/or TF-terms for discounts or credits that would apply towards our next shoot.
The above rates do not constitute a contract. The photographer reserves the right to adjust compensation commensurate with experience, timeliness, and other relevant factors associated with the model's performance of duties.
