*Please read my profile before messaging. Paid work is primary at this time.
I have been working with photography for as long as I can remember. I began with nature and animals, and have taken the natural progression into life and people, as well as models. Life is made up of imperfections, and I try to let everyone see the beauty in everything. Every picture tells a story, and my goal is to let the imagination run on the stories.
When shooting with me, be aware that I believe strongly in photos not looking forced, but the models doing what come naturally to them. I enjoy shooting, and I want whomever I am working with to enjoy the shoot as well. I do not heavily Photoshop images- I am a photographer, not a Photoshop artist.
I am a hands on photographer, in the sense that if you book a shoot with me, you don't just get a photographer. You get full consultation, discussion of ideas, and mood boards. You get wardrobe assistance and pose coaching if desired! I prefer collaboration over just telling you what to do!
I adore shooting outdoors, and doing on location shots, but do have an in-home studio as well. Abandoned buildings, woods and conceptual ideas are my favorites- and I'm always open to new ideas. Never hesitate to contact me if you have an idea you want to do, whether you've seen it in my portfolio or not. Everything I shoot is up to the comfort level of the model.
*Please note for use of my in home studio: I have an entire room dedicated to my studio space, complete with changing area for client use. I do have cats. As any pet owner may know, fully keeping animal fur from an area is near impossible. Please inform me of any allergies prior to shooting.
I love collaborating with the other parties in a shoot. To me, it is much more worthwhile when everyone has a say, an idea, and input. Those not afraid to get dirty, climb, run around, and be themselves are my favorites to work with, as well as those who know what they want and are going for it.
I am always looking to work for more designers, MUAs, models, etc to work with! Please do not hesitate to contact me.
Scheduling/Booking: I am unavailable weekdays until 5pm, and cannot shoot during that time period. If you are coming to me, or you are within a 30 minute travel time, weeknights are options. Weekends are primarily shooting time.
Payment/Trade: At this time, I am currently booking primarily PAID work, but am open for very select TF and trade shoots. TF and trade primary go for website work, submissions, designers, and work with full teams. Please message with details, and be aware that my rates are very negotiable and I will work to fit your budget. Paid shoots receive their choice of edits, TF shoots do not. All photos are sent via Dropbox or Google Drive. Please be aware that in terms of receiving your photos, paid work comes first.
Travel: Travel is currently limited to the NJ-PA area.
I aim to have everyone as comfortable as possible, and happy with the results.
No divas. No egos. We're all in this for art.
No flakes. Things happen, I know this, but constant flaking and lame excuses do not work well with me. After the third attempt to reschedule (Location shoots being delayed by weather do not count, as that is out of our control) I will not keep rescheduling. My time is as precious as yours.
I do check references.
I will NOT chase you. If you arrange or are speaking about arranging a shoot with me and then drop all communication, I will not continue to message.
This is my primary source of income. Therefore, PAID work is primary. TF work is extremely limited.
Model Release forms are required to be signed with every shoot.
One escort permitted, with prior discussion. They will be asked to leave if they cannot behave.
I model as well as am a photographer. You can find my modeling at MM#1707700
I do not shoot pornographic material. I gladly shoot nudes and some fetish work- primarily clothing, but nothing past that line. Please do not ask me.
All shoots are up to the comfort level of the model.
Depending upon the details of the shoot, I occasionally may have an assistant with me for extra hands. It is also discussed prior to.
If an MUA/H is needed, I know several whom I may contact, but separate fees may apply.
If traveling over 30 minutes from my location, travel compensation is asked and greatly appreciated.
