I moved to hawaii from LA over a year ago, I'm looking to add more to my portfolio
WHAT IM LOOKING FOR
I want to add variety to my port something different than what I already have, If you would like a style that I have already done in your port, we can work out a trade so we both get something we want
I know were in hawaii, but i dont want to do just a basic bikini on the beach, sunset waterfall photo, its been done a million times and I dont think it will bring anything to my port. If you want a couple shots like that, again ill try to help you out since you are helping me out!
SOME THINGS I WANT TO CLEAR UP BEFORE YOU MESSAGE ME TO WORK WITH YOU!
first off Im super friendly, and can be really goofy during a shoot..I like to have fun, I think you can get the best shots when everyone is just relaxed and having a good time...
message me on here first, I will give you my number or email... I have to be up front ... I am not a big fan about talking on the phone, I talk to like 3 people on the phone and they are all family who dont know how to email or text...
emailing or texting is the easiest way to get through. dont take it personal, I dont really like talking on the phone with anyone...
MOST IMPORTANTLY NO PERVES!!!
I will not do nudes, Im not the kind of girl that takes off half my clothes by the end of the shoot just because you want to get some nudes or implied in, any sort of implied needs to be talked about before the shoot.
secondly Im not on a shoot to start dating, hook up, be sexual or flirt... im an open book to making new networking friends thats as far as it goes, and if you even start to get perverted on me during the shoot, it will make me feel uncomfortable, we will not get any decent shots and I will walk out of the shoot.. I've done it before, not afraid to do it again.
all I ask for is respect... I will respect you by showing up to the shoot and all i ask if you to respect me and not be a creep.
professionalism is what I expect and I will give!!!
RELEASES (THE BIG ONE)
I will not shoot with you unless you can type of a release, I have had photographers in the past before use my photos for other websites without my permission!
type up a piece a paper for both of us to keep, trust me its a good thing to have for all parties in the shoot!
LASTLY....PLEASE PLEASE DON'T EVEN THINK ....
not giving me the shots, If you can't edit them for whatever reasons, I still expect the raws. No one appreciates having their time wasted. This is why we sign a release, and if you try to screw me over, I wont hesitate to make sure the word gets out!
I may not be the most experienced model out there, but I have had my fair share of tricks, pervs and being screwed over by plenty of photographers, I understand many of us here are still new and trying to gain the experience... but if you want to continue gaining experience you need to remain professional and be into this for the right reasons. NOT because you just want to get some girls naked and play hacky sack in your studio apartment with them later
So now that you have read through all this, feel free to hit me up with your ideas!! im an open book with shots! from B&W to BRIGHT COLORS!
