My name is Michael Stagg and I'm commercial photography student attending Harrington College of Design here in Chicago. I'm currently seeking professionals within the industry to collaborate with and build my portfolio via trade. Please read the information provided below before contacting me concerning a shoot; it should answer many of the general inquiries you might have.
I'm interested in piecing together a core group of professionals - My "Creative" - to work with on shoots. That means I would like to establish a continuous working relationship with models, MUAs, hair & wardrobe stylists, etc. We would collectively select a theme, pick a location, shoot and submit our work with the desire to garner showings and gain media attention.
Some themes I'm interested in are:
o Japanese Anime/Manga Inspired
o Various Movie Inspired Themes (REALLY have an itch to create something based on Stanley Kubrick's "A Clockwork Orange"!)
Of course I'm open to any and all creative ideas. :)
My current availability is as follows:
Mondays & Weekends
Please provide notice at least a week in advance if possible if you'd like to schedule a shoot.
I generally like to capture 20 - 30 shots/look; more should all parties be inspired to do so. The team can expect to receive all usable images watermarked and ready for review as proofs via Dropbox within 7-14 days (more than likely it will be no more than 48 hours post shoot depending on my current work load but things do change and do happen). From that I'll offer a total of 4 edits per creative team member within 7-14 days MAX!
Interested in collaborating? Have additional questions? Don't hesitate to send me a note. I look forward to creating stellar imagery with you! :)
Final Note: My Top 12 is a listing of professionals I've worked with or aspire to work with at some point. I'd like to add you to it too! :)
