About Me

If you're going to friend request me here, please 'Like' me on Facebook as well.

Due to my busy schedule, I'm currently not able to check my MM messages as often as I would like. If you send me a private message (PM), I'll respond as soon as I can. Thank you for understanding.

Attention Photoshop Retouchers: Please DO NOT send me a friend request or tag my profile soliciting your services.

Specializing in fashion, lifestyle, editorial, beauty, model portfolio development and more...

I love working in this industry since it enables me to be creative and have fun at the same time. It also allows me to interact with some great people on a regular basis. I constantly strive to improve my technique in order to bring more depth and color to the images I create.

I enjoy working with models that are confident and comfortable in their own skin. I also realize photo shoots can be stressful for some people so I make every effort to ensure we both have a fun time.

If you're interested in working with me, you must message me directly since I don't consider friend requests, comments and TAGs as any indication of photo shoot opportunities. 

Please provide ALL of the following information when contacting me. 

- Date/Day & Time Preference(s) :
- Allotted Time for Shoot :
- Concept You'd Like To Shoot : Details please!!
- Desired Shooting Location : I must be able to find it on Google maps.

I will ignore your message if you don't supply this information. Why should I bother to respond if you don't care enough to provide details about what you'd like to shoot. Links to inspiration photo ideas would also be nice. I'm a photographer not a mind reader!

Why Shoot With Me
I see alot of models with the exact same look and feel to their portfolio images. That's because many of them don't feel they need to pay or think they should pay photographers. They only shoot with TF* photographers that produce the same images for models over-and-over again. How does this help you stand out from the rest? 

If you want something creative and different for your portfolio, shoot with me.  Modeling is like any other business. You have to spend money to make money.  Invest in a great portfolio and you will see a return by getting published, signed by an agency, or by booking more paid assignments because your photos are attracting attention since they aren't the same old boring unedited images many TF* only photographers produce.

Unsigned "New Faces" and Agency Signed Models
I want to work with (male and female) "new faces" and agency signed models that are looking to create/update their agency "go-see" book. Studio and/or outdoor scheduled shoots with agency preferred looks and styles. It will involve at least 3 outfit changes in addition to a head shot.  I will have a creative team (MUA and hair stylist) on hand for editorial style images.

While all "new faces" have the potential to be a great model, I'm looking for a specific body type to capture fashion, lifestyle and/or editorial style portfolio images. Following are the basic model requirements.

- Female models should be between 5'4" and 5'11" and age range from 16 to 35.

- Male models can start from the age of 16 to late 40’s. You should be between 5'11" and 6'2" with an excellent physique.

Other body types, even plus size, will be considered for anyone with a great face and personality.

Note: Models less than 18 years of age must have parent/guardian approval to schedule a shoot. They must also be present during the entire photo shoot.

Please message me directly if you're interested in scheduling a shoot. I will consider working for TF* for truly exceptional models.
