Paid Work: I often have paid work for models. I am not really interested in adult gigs or anything fetish-oriented anymore unless it pays considerably.
Zivity: I will consider Zivity shoots though I do not consider them a high priority.
TFP: Occasionally I seek a model out however it never hurts to inquire.
I have some cool published work coming out in 2013. Really actually excited about this as it is why I wanted to do photography in the first place. Stoked!!

Your portfolio is like cotton candy for the brain. You've officially reached superhero status in my comic book of life. -
Toni Frantz, Model
I for instance, would not challenge Suzanne Falk to a painting contest, or Tate Hemlock to a photography battle. If I did, I'd be wearing my ass as a hat.-
Wayne Michael Reich, Artist
Tate Hemlock captures all my adolescent lust and longing and presents it back to me with smiling tattooed beauties who bring up feelings of old pulp magazines. His photos take me back to dangerous liaisons in far away dance clubs and drunken parties of my youth. Those knowing smiles and innocent settings. It's wicked and sweet and tastes like candy. -
Darick Robertson, Comic Book Artist (Transmetropolitan, The Boys)
On the day that Tate Hemlock quoted a hoary old lyric of mine, a great peace descended upon me and I knew my work in this life done, and it was good. -
Jeremy Gluck, the Barracudas
Evocative, powerful, beautiful...Disturbing, brutal, impressive... -
Chris Carter, Throbbing Gristle, Chris & Cosey, etc.
One of the other things that was cool about Shake is that they had a photographer there named Tate Hemlock that takes pictures during Shake that captures the essence and coolness of the evening. -
All your work is brilliant, if I could be a shadow in your footsteps and create photos of half that quality I would be a very happy man. -
Peter McDonald, Photographer (Brisbane, Australia)
Tate Hemlock is great to work with! He always has great ideas and is also very open to new ideas! He is so much fun to be around, super creative and just a little bit silly. OK, he is a lot silly but he is also professional! And I LOVE LOVE love his new work! -
Jessi Frances, Model
Tate Hemlock has proven to be one of the coolest photographers I've had the chance to work with! He's reliable, professional, FUN! and great at what he does. I've NEVER been disappointed when working with him. I've always had a blast during the shoots and he's always full of great ideas!! -
Fallon of GodsGirls, Model
You always seem to have a story from the weekend. You're like Starsky and Hutch all rolled into one guy. -
William Mitchel, Artist (Hulk 100 Project)
Tate was a wonderful addition to my project! He has amazing energy "even after the cops were called", ha ha! I guess that's just how we work, we attract everyone! I would love to work with him again in the near future! Very easy going and professional! I would recommend him to anyone who wants the amazing opportunity to work with him!!! -
Deee-Liteful Images, Photographer
Tate Hemlock is a true artist with nothing but the best attitude and photography skills. I really had a good time working with him and I hope to work with him in the future on all sorts of creative projects. He has brilliant ideas and leaves you wanting more! I can't wait til we can shoot again! - Jessica Claire, Model
I wish I was you... your photos get better, the almost cartoony style that you put to them is quite unique on dA. Wicked.-
Funkydoodycool, UK Artist
I only say it like I see it, darlin'. Any less would be bullshit. And you're more than funny. You're intelligent and aware. Perfected sarcasm and statements so blunt that they cut like jagged glass...that's Art. You have my attention.-
The work of Tate Hemlock is created within a nexus point where realities combine in new and unexpected ways. And it slightly disturbs me that I like it so much! -
James A. Owen, Author "The Search for the Red Dragon"
You're looking more and more like Ian Dury as you get older. Especially with the cigarette. -
