>>Note: I do rent my studio space by the hour 2-hour minimum, Studio is officially Tigard staring April 1st 2014, but Mail & GPS shows Portland<<

I was very involved in Photography and Film in the 80s and early 90s.  I gave it up for Corporate life.  Once that ended I returned to my passion of Photography.  In the 80s and very early 90s I did Rock & Roll Photo Work and owned Rock & Roll Rarities in Reseda California.  I have a solid background in both Model & Concert Photography.  Some of my R&R is on my site ConciergePhoto.com under what else, Rock & Roll, more coming when time permits.

We feel our rates are very competitive for the quality and experience we provide.  I am willing to do some TFP work for those who I see having amazing potential.  Other TF_ is when we have shoots for themes or concept shoots for publication or events.  We only pay for model time when a client hires us to shoot, then everyone gets paid.

2014 is a busy year with a change in direction for me.  With the new Portland / Tigard location I am only working on a few things (below), with the exception of paid client work.  I will only do TF_ on my projects (see below), events and for friend / models who already have been invited to my open door policy

My Public Google Calendar will be updated when I will be at the Portland Studio / House, as well ad event dates.

Open Hosted Events.
Monster & Horror Fantacular April or May 2014
Apocapunk: Apocalyptic Steampunk

I am also available for PS graphics, editing and retouching.  I am a member of the NAPP and working to become an Adobe Certified Expert. I now edit mostly in Camera Raw & PS CC exclusively, I don't use Lightroom or actions, sorry not my thing.  3rd part tools, Alien Skin, OnOne & Lucis.

Our photos are only printed through our lab of choice (BayPhoto) via our site ConciergePhoto.com.  We don't allow 3rd party printing at places like Walmart or Costco, sorry.

Looking forward to creating something remarkable.

I am honored to have worked with some amazing models, makeup artists and MUAs over the years. Many of the models I work withare not on MM, so I will not list them here.  It's enough listing the MM people, let alone the other models as well.  In the 80s I worked with dozens Adult Artists through including Nina Hartley, Traci Lords, Nikki Charm,  Annette Haven, Sharon Mitchell, Barbara Dare, Brandy Alexandre, Ginger Lynn, Kristara Barrington, Lynn LeMay, Shauna Grant, Marilyn Martin and more.

My style is my style.  I can't name it, I can't explain it more than saying "I see beauty, art and music in everything, and I try to capture that!"  That's about it.  I am who I am, I don't copy styles, but will of course copy concepts if really cool and exciting, after all, flattery and all that!  I will always put my own twist on things.

If we are planning a shoot together, or you wish to shoot in the future, please use any model below as a reference.  I treat everyone the same, kindness, courtesy, respect, and with humor.  If you don't laugh, please find a different photographer, we will clash and the time at my studio will be dull and boring!  If you're either a paid or TF model and you pull a no show or cancel without notice or valid reason we will not reschedule.  Please show common courtesy and respect of our time.

Here is my view on escorts.  Models are welcome to bring one.  I prefer you bring a female escort. I find male chaperons (boyfriends/husbands) distract the model, she does not pose or act herself with him there. I will make an exception if we talk in advance.  I don't like surprises.  Again contact any/all models about my studio presence.   I normally have a female assistant at shoots.  I always have a female assistant on client paid boudoir shoots, no exceptions. 

Studio rules: No smoking inside at all, and if you smoke, please don't come reeking of smoke, it lingers in the house/studio.  If smoking outside, please do not do that using my wardrobe. There are ashtrays outside.  All my wardrobe with the exception of vintage beaded, wedding dresses and jackets are washed after every use.

The house is rented as a studio only.  While here I always provide models and guests with the following: Water, Flavored Water, Protein Bars, Fruit, Snacks, etc..  The bathroom you can shower, there are robes, clean towels.  I also provide baby wipes, flush-able wipes, stack of clean hand towels so each model gets a fresh one, puffs plus, and more.   Please park in front. Try to arrive 10-15 min early to shoots to be safe.

Model Tips:  If using our MUA(s), please arrive with a clean, fresh, moisturized face. Do NOT come in makeup.  If you're modeling anything cropped or plunging in the back or front, or lingerie or topless please do not wear a support garment to the shoot.  I don't mind removing small lines, but massive lines and buckle marks are an unneeded time consumer.  I stop shooting about 1/2 hour before our time ends.  If you're there from 1pm - 3pm, 1 to 1:30 is prep 1:30-2:30 is shooting 2:30-3:00 is wrap up.

Numbers inside (__) = number of times (more than once) I have worked with model. (Non MM Models NOT listed, there are 100s)

We have a 1-flake rule.. 2nd time we can't work with you any longer.  Any model who pulls a no-show on a paid gig and leaves us paying the staff w/o a model is blacklisted from working on any of our or partner shoots or events.  The fact we lay out money for props, location, and staff and then have a model no show without notice or calling or reason is beyond unprofessional.
