I am a professional photographer who specializes in weddings and outdoor portraiture. I have been a full-time instructor of photography since 2001. You can see more of my work and biography at www.aldousphotography.com
It is refreshing and fun to work with new faces regularly. I enjoy looking through this site and always adding new contacts for future shoots. There is so much to see and many great concepts and ideas here on this site. You can get a good idea of what type of photography I will do by looking through my portfolio. Of course, I am always open to new ideas and willing to shoot TF if it will enhance or further my portfolio.
TF shoots - Please understand that teaching full time, running my photography business and balancing my family schedules do not allow me time for wishy-washy models. If you book with me, understand that I can't just shift times around at last minute or move it to another day because you are running late. I am only available to shoot late afternoon/evenings, weekends and holidays. My weekdays open up in the summer.
Please, please, please be professional and do not flake. I have found TF to be very frustrating because of the lack of understanding, professionalism and/or commitment from the model. If you book with me, please show up on schedule and be ready to enjoy the shoot!
I sooo badly want to post the profile of the models who have flaked on me just to call them out! Seeing as there are no repercussions to models who are completely unprofessional, maybe one day I will post my own list here in my profile.
When it comes to planning our shoot, I expect to make communication (talking not texting) via phone eventually. I also find it extremely helpful to share ideas and concepts via photos on FB or email. If you are unwilling to give me your phone number for communication, the shoot will not happen. A five minute conversation of planning and details is much less time consuming as opposed to an hour of texting and messaging!
I look forward to hearing and more importantly working with you!
