Hi. My name is Mike. Thanks for finding my page. I am a Glamour, Boudoir, and Portrait Photographer.
I don't work with people on MM often, and I've been on and off this site over the past few years. My primary interest here would typically be for hiring models for my gallery photos, or perhaps a project of personal interest. [i]Currently, I only consider trade offers from experienced models based on need.[/i]
The photos I create are very simple, honest, and centered around creating beauty and glamour. That is my formula. And why mess with success? The longer I do this the more comfortable I am in this style, and it seems what I was meant to do.
I'd like to take a moment to say a kind thank you to all who have visited my photos or commented on my work. Additionally, I would like to express my thanks to those who enjoy my style of photography and have reached out to me to work together. I appreciate the kind sentiments.
Finally, a bit of [i]gratuitous pedanticism[/i]: Models need to be smart about the photographers with which they work. I have been doing this a long time, and can pretty readily spot good from bad, but it takes a little knowledge and experience. Everyone starts somewhere-- and both photography and modeling are a learning process, but don't let your eagerness get the best of you. One of the best things you can do is to learn to distinguish the good from the bad when it comes to images...
The best place for updates is the [url=http://www.facebook.com/MikeCassidyPhotography] Facebook Page[/url]. Last minutes openings, news, pics, etc.
no currernt projects.
Communication via Model Mayhem message, Facebook message, or email is the best way to book a shoot. I respond promptly.
I understand this is a networking site, but I am not on here for a popularity contest. Additionally, friending on MM really doesn't mean much. I tend not to check my friend requests and I don't collect friends. [i]Please do not take offense[/i], I just seem to not add friends on here.
