*If I sent a friend request, it means that I am interested in doing a shoot with you, if you think we'd be a good fit, let me know. I don't make plans and then flake out.

I am a local photographer in the Portland area that is looking to collaborate with anyone on cool projects. I have experience with many different types of photography, and I am not the type who is simply looking for an easy way to photograph scantily clad women. In my honest opinion there are too many photographers/models who think porn is the same thing as artistic nudity. Hint: It's not.
I have only worked with a few models at this time, but would love to work with new people in the hopes of building both our portfolios. I am a huge fan of natural light and use that most of the time, however I do have some experience in the studio, although I don't have one of my own currently.
I am most interested in doing TFP/TFCD shoots simply because I am still in the process of building a larger portfolio and don't really have the largest of budgets. HOWEVER, unlike some TFP photographers, I don't hold any of the edited images back. You don't get 5-10 pictures of my choosing. I edit every photograph that I think has at least some potential, and you will have access to all of them in less than two weeks after the shoot (usually less than one).
One last thing about me, I tend to have a very sporadic editing style, meaning 5 images that were shot within the same 5 minutes sometimes don't look similar at all. What that means is you have options. If you like the style of one particular shot, I can take that style and apply it to any of your shots.
I am open to all projects, so please feel free to contact me with any idea you might have.
