My name is Ricardo Gomez and I am a photographer that specializes in fashion, editorial and commercial work. I work primarily in San Francisco, New York and Los Angeles.
Photography is my passion! I am motivated and work hard at getting the work I want to do. When you work with me, you will have a fun and professional experience. I am organized, communicative and easy to work with.
I will work with anyone that shows commitment for the reason they are on Model Mayhem. My Friends list is populated people who I will, may or have worked with and have portfolios appropriate for the work I do. If you are here and are serious, this is what I expect:
* Regularly updates to your portfolio. This is your passion. This may not be
a full-time profession. But you treat it as such.
* Timely responses to inquiries. Three days at most if we are planning
* Professionalism. On time. Timely follow-up. Following instructions. Being
prepared. Respect. No drama.
* I accept Friend Request from those who have a portfolio that looks
appropriate for the work I do: Fashion, Editorial, Beauty, Commercial.
* I have no problem with nudity or fetish work. But if that's your specialty,
we're just not compatible.
* I respond to ALL inquiries if I can tell you've read my profile or casting call.
I will not cancel or reschedule my projects for people who already committed to the specified date and time. Though it doesn't hurt to ask. I'll find a replacement if we can't resolve the issue and we may not work together again. The reason I am strict about scheduling is because someone in the project is getting paid or has other obligations and it's unfair to them. Let's not forget about my time either. But I'm more concerned about everyone else on the team. Everyone still gets paid if the project is rescheduled or cancelled with less than two weeks notice from project date. Which means we might as well burn money. And that is unforgivable.
I've been incredibly fortunate on Model Mayhem. I've only had one person cancel on the day of a photoshoot. I've worked with amazing people! If you are professional and pleasant, I will do everything I can for you professionally. I will send you as much business as I can. I consider every colleague a business partner. Sharing and working together ALWAYS wins!
TFP: Reserved for experienced professionals who have great creative projects or for certain low-key projects I may have.
Thank you for reading my lengthy bio! I hope we may collaborate in the near future and please feel free to contact me anytime.
