I am always looking for interesting projects to work on. Feel free to run ideas by me if you have some that you think we could collaborate on. Even if you don't have any ideas feel free to contact me and I may have some to run by you if I know you are interested in working with me.
I consider myself an artist using photography as a medium. I do not consider myself a "photographer". There are plenty of photographers on here and I feel that if you look around for awhile you will see the difference between photographers and artists. There are many artists on here as well and I am not saying anything negative or positive about either group.
TF is fine with me for ideas or looks that will benefit my portfolio; just ask! And yes, I occasionally pay models for specific looks or ideas that I need to make happen but I will generally contact you first in that case.
If you want to work together for portfolio building but don't have any specific ideas to collaborate on please take a look at the list I have put together below for some ideas that I would like to put my own spin on (I am not looking to directly copy anyone's work, it's just there for inspirational purposes). And if you contact me about working together please note from my portfolio and my list that I tend to use nudity regularly in my work (this applies to male or female) so please don't be offended if I mention it as I have to assume you like what you've seen in my portfolio and are willing to allow for the use of nudity while working with me to create art together.

About Friends on here
: If you are in my friend list or received a friend request from me that means I would collaborate with you. If I attempt contact and hear nothing from you I will remove you from my friends list. I know some people use this feature differently but that is how I will use it.
Note: I was formerly named BlackOlive on MM and recently changed.
