I have been photographing professionally now for almost 10 years. For several years, I showed regularly in galleries, but now I mostly license work through stock agencies and sell occasional prints. My photos have been licensed for national and international ad compaigns (http://www.flickr.com/photos/80269053@N00/3658542035/
), and they have been used on more than a dozen book and cd covers.
I'm very articulate, friendly, intelligent (MFA in creative writing and a Ph.D. in English), and easy to work with. I'm primarily an art photographer who has been lucky enough to find outlets to sell his work.
If you are interested in improving or starting a modeling portfolio, I charge $100 for a shoot that will give you some head shots, head and shoulder shots, and some full body shots for your portfolio (typically 10-15 photos). I'm also interested in shooting lifestyle/stock photos for trade shoots with models.
