About Me

I travel a great deal, shooting for clients within 100 miles of Myrtle Beach.

I love working with models to develop concept and theme shoots just for them.
 
Away from the beach I like to shoot eye candy sports themes, police concepts, and 50’s style and modern style pin-up. And of those three types, pin-up is the hardest to do because it takes more coordination with the model to get a great photo. It’s a combination of wardrobe, location, and look.

I hate shooting in a studio with a plan background so I tend to shoot more outdoor locations.

                                           
***BEFORE THE SHOOT***

During the planning of the shoot I hay ask for some information on wardrobe.

I require the model to speak with me by phone at least 24 hours before the shoot.

I require the model to sign a model release before the shoot.

Depending on the content of the shoot there may be other records required by federal law, title 18 U.S.C. 2257.

                                           
***TFP's***

I’m looking for very bold, very colorful photos. I'm currently accepting TFP. If you contact me and you want to shoot TFP, please have a concept in mind. With TFP shoots, you will be given edited photos of your choosing with collaborative copyright to the photos.

Here's what collaborative copyrights means: This gives you a copyright release to print the photo, use the photos for your portfolio, but not to promote modeling agencies. If they want to use my photos, I must be compensated!

*** Collaborative copyright does not give you the right to make any edits or alterations to the photos. ***

                                           
***Escorts***

As a general rule I do not allow escorts at my photo shoots.

There are only three {3} reasons for an escort. One, you do not trust me. Two, you are under age. Three, you want to show the escort something.

I want the model to be safe, feel safe, and feel comfortable, and focused. So if you don’t trust me, don’t use me. Nothing is gained from either one of us not being professional.

With an escort on a set, the photographer has the added consideration of watching the escort to prevent them from steeling equipment, and or standing behind the photographer taking photos and making videos. If the model want to do a photo shoot with the escort, she should do that and let the photographer go shoot with someone else.

Escorts are for the most part a distracting. You as a model are asking them to just sit around for a few hours while you shoot. In the unlikely event that we agree on an escort, it cannot be your mom, husband, boyfriend, or dad, unless it is a paid shoot and if you’re paying, you can bring anyone that you want! My experience with escort shoots is, these shoots are the biggest waste of your and my time, regardless how cool you think he or she is. Because you (the model) are more worried about how you look to your significant other or peer, and this makes your expressions look unfocused and awkward. The shoot is simply not worth it.


I would love to work with you…. Let’s plan a shoot soon….
