I work in studio only, no location shooting at all. I usually have a concept I work on for 4-6 weeks with different models before moving on. I'm mainly interested in darker themes of alternative fashion, goth and cosplay. I also shoot fitness, action (dance, martial arts) and occasionally whatever random stuff that comes to mind. I do my own retouching.
I'm renting a fully equipped studio
with great facilities in Oakland. I'm available to shoot on weekdays after 6pm and some weekends.
I'm open to paid shoots, depending on your experience level. I believe professionals need to be paid fairly.
For trade shoots I will provide 5 retouched photos within two weeks of the shoot. For paid shoots I unfortunately cannot commit to providing any photos unless specifically agreed beforehand. I usually do, but it might take longer.
I believe in good communication and keeping the promises made. I prefer MM messaging or email as it keeps things well organized. Once we've agreed on the shoot date/time I will require your phone number for last-minute changes. I expect everyone to confirm their arrival the day before via email, text message or phone call.
