Livin' in the sticks but I travel frequently. LA. PDX. Seattle. And anywhere between.
Primarily a location photographer, I like to think outside the studio. I enjoy the challenge and constant change of location shoots. I'm not opposed to using a studio when necessary and available but it is not my preference.
I offer a relaxed, comfortable working atmosphere with professional courtesy. In return I don't ask for much... just be interesting, professional and passionate.
Bring your own ideas to the table and let's make something rad.
I'm quite light-hearted and kind of a total dork. I enjoy what I do and I like to have fun while I do it... that being said however, I'm quite serious about what I do.
You know the drill.
I do not have my e-mail notifications enabled.
What does this mean to you? I'm glad you asked. It means that, while it's super rad that you take time to post comments or tags, I will likely never see them because I don't receive e-mail notifications and I'm not the type to look through my comments or tags daily in hopes of finding something new.
It also means that if you have an interest in working with me, you should probably message me rather than leave a tag or comment. I log in a couple times a day to check my messages.
(This is the boring shit you don't want to read but has earned it's place on my profile for very specific reasons and, therefore, is totes worth reading)
Please do not solicit me for paid work. This does not
mean that I'm above paying a model. It means that If I'm interested in paying a model for his or her time, I will reach out to that person myself asking about their rates either because I have a client with a budget, or because I have a strong desire to add them to my portfolio.
If you contact me to shoot you, I will assume it is for one of three reasons:
a) You're a total badass in front of the lens and have a striking look that I must
add to my portfolio and you are confident that a TF* shoot might be of interest to me.
b) You're interested in my rates, which are quite reasonable.
c) You're interested in submitting to a quality publication and feel that we would mutually benefit from a collaboration which stands a reasonable chance of being published.
A note about submissions: I would love to be published... I would not
love to be published in everything
. If I feel my style does not fit a particular publication, I'm probably not interested in submitting to them.
Your input on image selection is certainly valued and will gladly be taken into consideration. However, final selection of images to be submitted for publication is ultimately my decision.
The of the above conditions regarding submissions may be negotiated if:
a) You're paying my rates to shoot images for submission to the publication of your choice.
b) We have worked together in the past and I trust your judgment.
c) You have a number of publications under your belt and
I trust your judgement.
