we pride ourselves on creating a safe environment for new or experienced models to experiment with their boundaries, express themselves, and do cool/weird shit, and in the last 2 years we've worked with more than 80 models of all shapes, sizes, sexualities, and genders.
everyone can do cool shit.
this means we're always down to help you build your port/start modeling/whatever - i'm always very open to trade/collaboration. can't hurt to ask.
UNLESS YOU ARE PAYING MY RATES YOU MUST SIGN A MODEL RELEASE.
IF ITS A TRADE SHOOT, THE RELEASE GRANTS YOU AN UNRESTRICTED LICENSE TO DO WHATEVER YOU WANT WITH THE PHOTOS, FOREVER, PROVIDED I'M CREDITED. AS IN WE CAN BOTH PROFIT OFF OF THEM IN SO MUCH AS I CAN EVER PROFIT FROM SELLING XEROXED ZINES TO MY FRIENDS FOR 5 BUCKS A PIECE.

I'VE SHOT A BUNCH OF *VERY* EXPERIENCED MODELS -
I PAY FOR *EXPOSURE,* ESPECIALLY SOCIAL MEDIA EXPOSURE
i'm down to pay models i dig, but if you want me to pay you please be at least as "famous" as my girlfriend. it's not very hard, but that means when you message me asking for pay, gimme social media numbers. i'm looking for a social network of at least 10000 (combined across different sites, you can have 3000 on IG, 3000 on twitter, 3000 on tumblr - you get the idea. there's obviously overlap but it's still a decent understanding of the exposure i'll be paying for).
megabytes on a canon 60d
35 mm on a canon EOS 630 with expired film i got for 25 cents a roll from a local bodega
ripped up disposable cameras
medium format on a not-actually-vintage urban outfitters diana
broken 35mm cameras i bought at the arc and then threw on the ground
mini-instax instant film
i had a shoot with a cool model that i'd just met but was pretty comfortable with and it was super hot and my strobe kept not working the way i wanted it to and i felt really unprepared so i got kinda nervous and my hands were kinda shaky and my mouth was kinda dry and i was worried it made me seem like am amateur even though i've been doing this and stuff like this for a long time and it made me feel like a failure as a professional and like i lost the ability to be charming so i figured i'd post it about it here to warn people that if it's crazy hot and i don't really know you and my strobe stops working and i'm kinda tired and sick then i'll be a little quieter than normal and then i'll feel like i failed at a)being a professional and more importantly b) being funny and/or charming.
i'm fat and i do comedy, you guys, i need everyone to like me.
BLACK & GOLD
naked girls (guys are fine too), urban models, natural light, cheap colored light, messy food, smeared makeup, ratchet hos, people who hate hipsters, hipsters, rappers, camgirls, streetwear, anyone willing to do/wear weird shit
i don't really ever have "ideas," or "concepts" and if i do it's in a mad last minute terrified rush the morning before we shoot and it's usually something brilliantly complex like "you could eat some ramen" or "wear a black shirt and gold grillz" or "be really sweaty-looking."
i have some nudity in my port right now. i'll never ever attempt to convince/coerce/trick anyone into getting naked.
i'd always prefer to do some nude stuff during our shoot, if you're the kind of person who does nude stuff. nudity is weird. pictures with nudity are generally somehow weirder than ones without. i like weird shit.
but it ain't necessary and definitely isn't the secret goal.
i've had some models cancel shoots because they realized i've taken lots of pictures of naked people before. it's okay -
i'm cool with you leaving your clothes on. as long as you're not wearing uggs.
we pride ourselves on creating a safe environment for new or experienced models to experiment with their boundaries, express themselves, and do cool shit.
just try to be communicative, please - if i ask you about your level of comfort and it includes questions about nudity or implied nudity or pasties or sheer clothing or lingerie/bikinis, don't just say "i don't do nudes," 'cause i'm pretty sure most of those aren't nudes (thus the extra questions), so you didn't actually answer anything, and if i have to you ask you a bunch of times i feel like a creep who's pushing the nude/scantily-clad issue, and i hate feeling like that. i ain't pushing you to do shit, i just need to know *what* you do.
if your port says you don't do nudes and i message you to shoot and you immediately do the whole "first off to avoid the question i don't do nudes" thing that just screams to me that you didn't bother reading this profile, which is totes lame, 'cause i obviously read yours. and you didn't avoid the question, really, you just answered it before i asked it, which i wouldn't have, 'cause that information is easily accessible in your profile.
also - nudity is nudity. not implied. i know you're technically naked in the room, but we're taking photos, so i'd argue the photos matter more than us hanging out while the pictures are being taken. if you decided to run around the room naked for half an hour while i set up lights and then you put on a burqa (s/o to dope burqas) and i shoot you in it for five minutes, it's plainly not a nude shoot.
and if you tell me you don't do nudity/lingerie/bikini because your boyfriend won't "let" you i'm mostly gonna be terrified that your boyfriend will be mad at me for any picture i take and my face is very punchable and i don't like when people demonstrate that with punching my face
"escorts" are totally ok. just don't bring a jerk and don't be a jerk. in a perfect world you wouldn't bring extra people along but in a perfect world you wouldn't have to. i'm totally understanding of why you want to.
be understanding, be kind - that's my whole mantra. i'm not always good at it but i try.
gimme rates and ask for pay if you wanna be paid (and have a better "resume" than my girlfriend, detailed above).
if you use the phrase "i'd prefer to be paid," i'm gonna stop talking to you. everyone would prefer to be paid for everything. i'd prefer to be paid to eat pizza. i'd prefer to be paid to sleep. i'd prefer to be paid to play GTA.
also i swear to gee oh dee if you send me your rates and your MM port has 20 pictures of you WITH THE SAME FACIAL EXPRESSION nothing bad will happen but my gf and i *will* laugh *a lot*.
i sound like such an asshole in this profile. i'm totally not (i hope). unless at the shoot you start saying a bunch of stuff that's mad homophobic or racist or sexist or something. then i'm totally gonna be an asshole to you.
(if you've shot with me before and you read this and you're like, "oh, no!" because of something you said i 100 percent promise the following is not for/about/because of you, but it'll save some awkwardness - while i am white-presenting as FUCK for a variety of reasons - really fair skin, i'm the tallest person in my whole family, i was bussed out of our barrio to the suburbs starting in middle school - i *am* a "big tattooed chicano/hispanic/mexican guy." i don't refer to myself as "vato" up there 'cause it's a word i heard once in a rewatch of "blood in, blood out")
