My current goal is to sharpen my ability to photograph process and present commercial ready fashion/beauty/couture concepts. I am selectively looking for TFP models (as well as hairstylist and designers) with an equal hunger for finding that elusive shot, the one where skill and luck converge to slice a moment out of time.
Other than you of course, who do I work with?
Tricia B makeup artistry.
~Makeup sets the tone~
My wife is an extremely skilled and experienced makeup artist, who has worked for the likes of Betsey Johnson, Sassoon, plume, as well as many runway and commercial endeavors. I like complex looks, and even though most models have some skill in this field, I'm sure they could pick up a thing or two from my wife. She is an invaluable member of my team, as well as a huge benefit to those I work with.
~Sometimes stylist, but all-around right-hand man~
Andrew has been invaluable to to me almost every photo shoot. Whether it's helping the models straighten clothing while maintaining a pose, or quickly moving lights on the fly when I realized that I need just a little bit more fill he works tirelessly to streamline the project.
I'm easy to work with, and pretty laid-back when it comes time to shoot. I don't want anyone to feel uncomfortable, and find that "the shot" usually comes when everybody's guard is down. I always remember those that I work with, and like to call on them first if and when paying projects come down the pike. My model release contract has a clause stating that should either of us find a way to make money on the trade shots, we will contact the other and share the proceeds (upon agreement of course). I always give full credit to those involved in a shoot, as in all honesty I couldn't have done it without them. I always shoot manual in RAW format, and have a complex development workflow. I do not give out RAW files, as the finished product is what we are trading for. If you don't like my post-work, feel free to tell me beforehand.
If I sound like someone that you would like to collaborate with, please don't hesitate to shoot me an e-mail. If I don't get back to you immediately don't be offended, I keep myself pretty busy, but I do always try to respond in a timely manner.
