Photography, to me, is many things. It's an outlet for my artistic side, It's capturing special moments to be shared in the future, It's about capturing beauty in Nature, People, and wildlife. I am a nature Photographer in my heart, but I am driven to experience photography in as many ways as I can. I think Nature and Wildlife will always be my first love, but I enjoy the beauty of people and the harmony of their beauty with the environment. I rarely if ever shoot in a studio. I try to match you with the environment and compose an awesome photographic piece of art.
You won't find a person more serious about his work. I may be a bit eccentric or quirky, but it works for me. I only work with models that bring good vibes to the set. To me Photography is not about meeting women and hooking up so please don't confuse my enthusiasm and flirtatious personality as anything more than a man who loves his work. I think the female form is awesome, but I will work with anyone I have a sky's the limit approach but if I don't feel comfortable doing something it won't work. I will let you know if I feel uncomfortable and I would expect you do to the same.
I do not pay for shoots, unless the shoot is for a client that is paying me in which case I will always go with my most reliable and versatile models. Unless otherwise stated expect that it is a TFP situation.
I will not give out my raw photos. I visually share some photos during the shoot but please don't expect that I will show them all at the time of the Shoot. It takes too much time and I do not have a Shoot and peep flow... As we get to know each other this may change but in general I will review and edit the photos before you get them. ONLY give high quality Finished products.
My photos are a reflection of ME; my work so I only bring my A game and I expect that you do the same. I always want a meet and greet before the first shoot. It could be a separate day or it could be the same day before the shoot. This will be in a public place such as a coffee house, but I don't have people over my personal residence as a general Rule. I do not mind if you bring an escort, but I ask that you leave the jealous BF at home.
I would hope that after we have developed a professional working relationship that things would be more relaxed but it's all in the way we both feel. Bring an open mind and a good creative sense and I am sure we will have a good time. After all isn't this why we do what we do???
