About MeTo start off, I am on this site to work and expand my art... Not to date! Please stop hitting on me while shooting, I am in a committed relationship and not here to date!
Ok, obviously I have a bit of a sense of humor. I am here for the art, why not have a little fun while doing it!
Please understand that, if I have sent you a friend request, it is because I like your portfolio. With that, I hope that one day our paths will cross and we can work together.
Also, You the model expect that you will get paid for your work. I can understand that. I am a photographer, I expect to get paid to work as well. Therefor, don't expect me to pay you for work we are doing. If it is for a client, then paid it shall be as the client will be paying for it. If it is to benefit your portfolio or mine, then payment is the benefit of the portfolio. We both will be putting in the time. In that I hope you understand that when the shoot is done, I still have to go back to my office, work on the photos, edit accordingly. You get to go home and do as you wish, so please understand that it is not an immediate turn around.
I will say though that I am a pleasant person to work with. I am here to make art, not pick up anyone.
Please understand that I want you at ease. If you are uptight, nervous (Yes, a little is understood), and not able to perform to the best of your ability then our shoot will be difficult. With that in mind, I do NOT allow escorts during a shoot. If you want to meet me before the shoot (Which I like to do so we can both be on the same page) and bring someone then, that is fine. Having an escort bring you to a shoot is fine, but when the shooting starts, they need to leave. The problem I have found is that, subconsciously, you will be trying to impress the escort and not focused on the camera. When shooting, I need 100% focus on the camera!
So, now that you read this far I hope that I haven't discouraged anyone from working with me!
Looking forward to working with you!
