Thank you for viewing my profile
I am a freelance photographer from the Manhattan and Bronx area.
~Due to the overwhelming emails from models, I have set a priority list~
•TFP/CD is at the top of my list.
For Example: Models have paying photographer on the top of their list.
•Models with very reasonable prices for a true striving artist like myself, will be seconded on my list.
~For example, if the model fee/rate is expensive (especially if its a non-nude photo shoot) That would be a waste of My time and Yours.
Do not get me wrong, I don't have a problem working with models that do not do nude, my problem is they want to be paid as a nude model and that is not how I work.
•I will try to work with 1 or 2 paying models per month, depending on the models fee/rate, and my budget.
I will put up a monthly schedule to make things convenient for everyone. It will let you know if I am available or not.
Thank you for your Cooperation

SOME FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
Are you a professional?
Yes, but keep in mind that by definition, a professional is someone who does this for a living FULL TIME. I am a hobbyist/Semi-pro.
I do not do this professionally because the pay and benefits from my day job are too lucrative to give up right now. I am a freelance photographer.
Do you charge for photo shoots?
It's negotiable. Also depend if the model want to do TFP/CD.
Why do you want photos of me, and what will you do with the photos?
I enjoy the art of photography, and enjoy working with both new, and experienced models.
One day I would love to exhibit my work in an art gallery, or publish my work.
At the moment I use the photos to promote myself.
Do I need to sign a release?
Yes, I could e-mail you a copy of the model release. You may wish to add any restrictions to the model release as you need to. The release is there to protect both of us.
Can I bring a companion to the shoot?
Absolutely, I welcome all models to bring someone along to help keep them at ease, but it is not necessary. All I ask is that your companion stay off to the side.
How long is a photo shoot?
I usually like to work within a two hour time frame, or depending on the number of outfits the model is using.
