Graphic designer and photographer living in Santa Fe at the moment. I am a principal owner of a boutique media agency based out of Albuquerque. We develop mobile and web applications for no names and almost somebodies. We also do the marketing and branding for a host of entities big and small throughout the US. I took photography in art school (logged over 180 hrs, lived in the studio) and understand design principals and creative composition. I like classic images but I will also challenge conventions and push envelopes too. I take every project seriously and will work hard to get it right.
I absolutely do TF, especially if it benefits both portfolios. I am willing to pay for time and budget modeling fees into most projects. I currently belong to a stock photo clearinghouse that has paid listings. I can also trade for self promotion or design work, we can work out budget and trade rate. Start referring people to your actual site not just MM :)
