I do fine art photos of women whose faces are interesting and reflect their character and experience. So if you have received from me a ModelMayhem friend request, it's almost certainly because I have seen something remarkable in your face and because I don't think that most of the photos on your ModelMayhem page do full justice to that particular quality of your beauty.
CLOTHED OR NUDE:
Although I prefer to work with nude models --- as only then can we capture the full, sophisticated beauty of who you are --- I am perfectly happy to work with you clothed: so long as we agree in advance that, whether you pose nude or not, our objective is to capture in our images that most fleeting of beautiful things, your character, your inner self, which is only ever fully revealed in glances which grip the viewer, setting you apart as a model and as a person.
YOUNG OR OLD:
I delight in working with young models and those not so young, regardless of size, shape, or any other differentiations.
MY TASTE AND SKILLS:
Check out the portraits here on Model Mayhem and on my general site (www.GraceFoto.com
) to get a sense of both the variety and the high quality of my work. There you'll see that rather than trying to shoehorn you into my style, I'll work to help you discover and perfect your own style: that particular combination of posture and expression and motion and light and color that will set you apart by revealing to the camera your very best qualities.
WHAT I WILL DO FOR YOU:
And because I'm now retired from 30 years in publishing, and not depending on photography for my income, we won't have to rush through the shoot, but can work together as long as we need to get it just right.
Nor will I rush through the editing of the photos we make. I will work long hours after the shoot to provide you with spectacular images, electronic and printed from my own museum quality printer: photos that will show that you are, indeed, a lovely woman, and that will enrich your portfolio and win the attention of photographers with greater skills and more connections than I.
ESCORTS ARE ALWAYS WELCOME:
Because nervousness always hinders the flowering forth of beauty, I want you to be relaxed during our photo shoot, so feel free to bring along an escort, so long as your escort contributes to the shoot by helping you grow comfortable as we work together.
I've studied Portrait Photography and Fine Art Nude Photography with Gary Samson (MM#60263), the superb director of the photography program at the New Hampshire Institute of Art, and am seeking models --- experienced or not --- to help me strengthen my portfolio as I strengthen theirs.
As I said above, the friend request I sent means that I would like to work with you.
MY STUDIO IN MANCHESTER:
We can shoot in my studio on Hanover Street here in Manchester right across from the Palace Theatre or at a location of your choosing.
Contact me through Model Mayhem or send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) to let me know the kind of photos you need to build your portfolio. I'm sure we can work out an arrangement that will be mutually beneficial.
