Yeah that's me in the profile pic. One sexy man hahaha! Ok that was lame. To the point.
Lately I've just been shooting for myself. It helps put me at ease and keeps my mind open to try different things. I don't have the stomach to regurgitate what I hear other new photographers say . I'm an advanced or professional hobbyist. Sometimes I charge people and at other times I don't. I'm into glamour and do one stylized shoot a year. I'm military so that takes up a great deal of my time. So I work within my constraints, but I look to challenge myself and get better each and everytime.
Making my subject whomever she is look beautiful. I do a lot of light experiments to keep myself sharp. So at times I don't mind doing TFP, but for those models who try and approach me about paying them. I take my time to look at your portfolio its not hard to see where you are in your experience level as a model. That being said I look up your photographer references as well to see the skill of the photographer.
I'm a pretty humble dude and don't believe in being snobby or treating people like shit. I'm not into mixing business with pleasure either. To me that's just so unprofessional, but you are more than welcome to bring an escort to a shoot. I'm just going to put them to work in order to help me out....ie holding a reflector or helping move my stands. If you're interested in working with me just leave a message and I'll try and get back with you as soon as possible.
That being said I hold all copyrights to my images and require you to sign a model release. I have no issues giving print release for your portfolio. Anything for use in a magazine and so forth will be licensed to use my images for an agreed period of time and any other details worked out in a written agreement including compensation.
