I like friendly people who like to smile. I enjoy beautiful scenery, beautiful music, good food, and taking photographs, especially of lovely women, preferably while smiling in front of beautiful scenery.
I've taken photos for a long long time and still enjoy it immensely. I travel a lot for enjoyment and for my real job as an engineer. Sold a few photos but am not planning on this becoming my day job.
You're welcome to look through my Flickr site and see what I do for enjoyment. Please remember that many of my shots are either candids or "hello and shoot" situations where I only have a minute or two to get the shot. I started working with models about a year ago and enjoy it very much...when they show up....LOL!
However I would like to get the hobby to start to pay for itself at least which means getting shots with a model release attached. Also there is a definite limit to what I feel comfortable posting as candids.
If you like my work I have no problem working on a "Trade For" basis. I also plan to start limited hiring on $/Hr basis for some of the more creative things or if I round up any commercial work. Just give me a call at 309-267-4955 to see where I'm at.
Again I am not a professional photographer but then if you are a model I'm not asking you to pay for the shoot. If not a trade then I will be the one paying you.
You are welcome to contact the models on my Flickr page for references. Almost all their photos will have their MM number included in the description.
My real home is in Illinois about three hours South of Chicago but I have a house in Hawaii and like to spend as much time there as possible. And no I'm not rich which is why I'm sitting in my remodeled garage in my house in Hawaii while my renters enjoy the balcony with the view of the ocean.
Hope you enjoy the pictures and would be interested in working together sometime!
