I’ve been shooting for over 25 years. And was a portrait photographer for about a year with a national chain (many moons ago). And just getting started in Model photography. I’m easy going, flexible and get along well with a diverse amount of people. I have a lot of fun during a shoot and hope that translates to the people I’m shooting and they have fun too.
Guess I’m a bit of a traditionalist. I like clear and sharp images. I love to use lighting to make a dramatic look. Really open to trying new things and playing around with Photoshop. As far as Genres, again pretty open, both male and female. I like Head-shots, Fashion, Editorial, Fitness/Sports, Lifestyle and Swimwear. Open to “tasteful” implied but not real interested in all out nude, at least not for my port, if it’s something you want we can talk.
Always happy to do TF shoots. It’s great to be able to help someone else out, whether you’re just stating out, updating your port or just want to shoot, give me a shout! I look at TF shoots almost like you’re paying for it. After 20+ years in customer service, I like to make the “customer” happy, I want you to get what you want out of a TF shoot, so I’m happy to entertain any ideas you have. Will have a standard Model Release to sign.
I can shoot at my home “studio”, location and most of my equipment is portable, so if you have the room, your place. Anything from a quick hour for a few head-shoots to half or full day to try a bunch of things. Chaperons are welcome and/or if you want to meet ahead of time to chat.
After The Shoot
Can usually get a “finished” photo or two e-mailed to you in a day or two if you want and the rest after a bit. Really don’t want to put a absolute number of finished photos to expect here, that’s something we can discuss. You’ll get the finished high res images on a DVD and a release to print. I do my own retouching, but if there is “a” image (or two) you think would benefit from more experienced retoucher, I could get the RAW file for them, as long as I get a finished copy and you give me credit as the photographer. (If I use the image I will also give the retouch artist credit)
A picture is only good if it’s seen. I try, as best I can, to make my images seen here on MM. by participating in Forms, C4C trades and contests. I give credit back to your profile on all images I post here. I also post on social media and if you like I can credit and link to your FB or other site.
So if you are ready to start, update or create some art for you portfolio…contact me! Let talk and see what we can come up with. If you are not on MM yet send me an e-mail at sms.photography.wi AT gmail.com
