I'm a NYC-based video producer and photographer: my focus right now is on my video production company but I still work in still photography when I can. I test very infrequently and mostly for either personal work or technical tests. Will make exceptions for fashion video vignettes.
Subtlety is lost on me: if you want to work together just send me a message or tag saying as much, as I tend to take comments at face value otherwise.
I'm a Brooklyn-based but I also travel regularly. I'm available San Francisco every 4-6 weeks and in London several times per year. I have worked and continue to work with NYC agencies such as Ford, Wilhelmina, Major, Muse, VNY, APM, Fusion, Click, Boss, Basic, ORB and others. I generally don't provide hair/makeup/wardrobe for non-agency test shoots, so models should be prepared to provide their own. I don't usually shoot fashion tests with non-agency models, but give me a shout if you think I should make an exception for you.
A few things worth knowing about me: I'm not interested in having you pose with guns, swords, knives or guitars - you aren't the object, you're the reason. If all we can come up with is "sit there and look pretty" we might as well leave the cameras at home and just go drinking instead. I don't think every shoot calls for nudity, but if the idea of a little side-boob scares the crap out of you then I might not be the right collaborator for ya - I like to shoot a little sexy. I don't have an inherent problem with models with escorts, but I'm not fond having six people show up where two were expected - we're here to work, not take class field trips. You're welcome to contact any model in my portfolio and verify I'm not a psycho.
This is me, so you can have a face with the name:
