Hi there nice to meet you. My name is Don and I have been involved in photography since 1955. Yes a long time. My father was a professional and I learned at his knee you might say.
I am very experienced with high speed motorsports, events etc. I came here to get a bit more involved with "people" photography and hope to meet, work and collaborate on some interesting projects I have in mind.
I use hi end Nikon gear both bodies and glass with backups to the backups. I have full sets of studio strobes and light modifiers with battery packs and can shoot either in a studio setting or on location. I also shoot Large Format B&W film.
A casual pre-session meeting is preferred (hint). You meet me and I you. I've found that this saves a lot of time later. This is where we can discuss the shoot and what we wish to accomplish. Barnes & Noble is a favorite place for me as it's quite and refreshments available. If you prefer someplace else, I'm open to suggestions.
I have absolutely no problem with escorts and totally understand with the following exceptions. Husbands, significant others or agent/managers will NOT be allowed. If you wish, your father, mother, brother, sister, aunt, uncle, cousin or friend is fine. But anyone with an intimate tie or agents/managers are not.
Also if once we are in agreement with the shoot if the escort causes a disruption of any kind the shoot will be terminated immediately.
On the flip side, I consider myself to be professional but if the model is uncomfortable, the model can terminate as well. We all want to be happy, have fun and be productive.
If you are interested and have a a project in mind, wanting to flesh out your portfolio or would like to hear of projects I have probably the best way to contact me is through my web site. Thanks and hope to hear from you, Don
