Originally from Brooklyn. Never in a million lives would I have imagined I would be a photographer. My passion is and always will be acting. My creativity with acting definitely is meshed with photography. I love thinking outside the box for I get bored very easily. Always looking for new concepts!
My fees are not set in stone, however please do not attempt to low ball me. I understand times are difficult so we will definitely work out something that is beneficial to both parties.
I am a very punctual person, I believe in not just being on time, but being early. This is how I operate so I expect the same of my clientele. I do understand unexpected mishaps occur, so all I ask is for a phone call/text stating that you will be late. Your shoot may be rescheduled or canceled if I do not hear from you.
Outside photos are not permitted during photo shoots. This includes cell phone cameras.
Flaky models need not respond to any of my castings. I've had my fill with those. If you can't commit then do not waste my time. I've heard every excuse from car not starting to having to go into work at a last minutes notice. So lets not play games. Sorry I have to mention that but time is valuable and I do not like having my time wasted by no shows or people that cancel at the last minute. Please be professional whether it be TFP or Paid. Once you flake on me, it will be the last time! I never forget a face and I will let fellow photogs know how you operate...
At this time I am doing limited TFP shoots. I have found that TFP Models tend to be flaky and will cancel a shoot at the drop of a dime or even worse, not show up at all. My time cannot be wasted. I will only accept a tfp assignment if it is beneficial to me as well. Meaning something creative. If it's a concept I haven't done yet then I am down for it. If this only benefits the model then there will be a fee. Feel free to tell me your ideas and we may be able to work something out. If I send a request to you asking for TFP I must see something REALLY special in you!
Under NO circumstances do I pay models! Especially if all you have is six mirror pics from instagram in your port. I have invested a lot in time and money in my brand. I believe my time is worth YOUR investment. If I am working with a third party that is paying me to search for paid models then and only then will I pay.
I have no problem with escorts for a shoot and they are always welcome as long as they understand they are strictly a member of the audience and do not appoint themselves as my assistant shouting out pose suggestions or anything along those lines. The shoot will abruptly end at this point unless you let your escort know to stand down. Please do not bring jealous boyfriends or husbands as an escort. Another woman is prefered as an allowed escort. Only 1 escort will be allowed to the shoot. Especially when they are done in the in home studio.
My studio is an in home studio equipped with adequate lighting and back drops to accomplish A+ Photos! All the indoor shots in my port were taken in this studio. If you are hesitant about shooting in an in home studio, as metioned above you are welcome to bring an escort. (However I'm still clueless as to how anyone is any safer in an external studio... )
If you have a bad attitude or are stuck up then please do not even consider working with me! I like to have fun during photo shoots. Mutual respect is essential to great pictures!
"Lemme see Lemme see!":
During the shoot please refrain from constantly asking to see images on my camera. This causes much wasted time. I will allow you to see them after the shoot. I promise!
Number of Pictures You Will Receive:
The number of pictures you receive will vary. Normally, for TFP clientel, you will receive just the edited images. This can vary from 5 - 20 depending on the end results of our photoshoot. If you are a pro then it shouldn't be an issue. Usually shoots go bad when the model talks a good game on MM then freeze up in front of the camera when it's time to shoot. Only paying customers will receive any unedited pictures. Just because you hear my camera click 100 times doesn't mean you will receive 100 photos. Just need to make this clear.
Minors (17 and under):
Communication MUST be done by legal guardian. Minor release form must be filled out by legal guardian. Must be escorted by legal guardian. NO EXCEPTIONS!
I conduct myself in a professional manner. I would NEVER ask anyone to undress unless this type of shoot is agreed upon prior to shooting. You deserve that respect! I rarely do nude photo shoots. I like to leave something to the imagination! I keep my website family friendly so I really don't have much use for nude photos in my port. I will only do nude shoots if its something EXTREMELY tasteful.
