When was the last time you saw a really beautiful woman in an incredible shot? You may have said to yourself, "I would like to duplicate that look for my portfolio. It's always fun to start with an idea we get from somewhere else and make it our own. Lets talk about doing something you have always wanted to do. And the good news is we will always get a head shot that is great.
Just a word about models paying for photo shoots. It's true if you are really good you may never have to pay a photographer as long as you live. On the other hand you may want to get as much shooting done as you can over a controlled length of time and have control of the images. Then it's a good time to think about paying for what you want and when you want it. And if you aren't working and getting paid, shoot Trade or (TF) or "paid for" but keep shooting all the time.
Origin of my photography passion:
Ever since I was ten years old and my dad brought home the pin-up girl calendars, I have been interested in creating an image of a beautiful woman thru modeling and photography. I got my first Brownie in second grade and took it with me everywhere. As an adult, I moved to Los Angeles and my focus was at first in modeling but, a very wise husband watching me eat Haagen Daz said, “You should be a photographer.”
It was one of those moments when you say, “Oh absolutely!! That’s what I want.” He bought me my first Nikon film camera and I headed to UCLA Extension for classes. Over the years have been mentored by top experts in the field like Allen Berliner, Lance Stedler, and most recently, Michael Spatola, the first L.A. photographer to go totally digital. Digital is fabulous. You and I can see right away what your pictures look like. After our shoot, naturally, I use Photoshop for small touch-ups and magical transformations that make your man say, “Wow you are really hot, babe.” I will make you look your best without destroying your own unique beauty.
I still do a lot of TF shoots if we can come up with an interesting concept that enhances both of our ports. I will consider TF shoots for experienced models as well as new models who have a fabulous look Id like to shoot with. For TF* shoots I DO NOT pay for accommodation/travel expenses. I have really reasonable rates as well......So new models message me up as well, if you have the look i want to add to my port we can talk TF or setup a paid shoot....... Thanks darlings. We always have fun. That's what shooting is about for me.
