I am a nurse by trade and photographer by obsession. I initially started shooting 2008 and eventually became my university top photojournalist. I've put my camera down for long periods of time, because I have to learn a living. I've recently been picking up on it more lately. All my photos are April 2012 and later. I'm starting to dabble studio lighting and have a full kit in my bag of tricks.
If you are a starting model don't be shy. The least i would is say "no" due to work. I typically work M-F Swing shift. I have occasional on-call weekends. I prefer my subject to be 18 years. I haven't ran into any problem shooting Senior Portraits but the whole model release to guardian is a hassle.
