About MeHello! As a photographer I combine the best out of many worlds. First, I'm a hobbyist that takes his role very professionally and very seriously, which means unlike some pro's I still love what I do. I've been doing this for many years now, and I feel so blessed to work the models I've met. Secondly, as a younger photographer, I have a much easier time working with models without feeling like a "creepy old man with a camera." Finally, as a graduate student, I'm intelligent, committed, and focused completely on two goals: meeting awesome people and making awesome art!
I am open to a wide range of shots and genres, but I particularly enjoy shooting edgy glamor, urban settings, conceptual nudes and fetish. I also like to experiment with different lighting setups and strobist techniques.
Any of the models I've worked with previously will tell you that when collaborating with me you're guaranteed to receive several things:
1) a comfortable harassment-free shoot
2) a friendly and polite attitude
3) quality consistent with what is in my portfolio
4) Someone who never cancels a confirmed shoot date
5) your images returned to you with editing in roughly 3-5 days.
And again, someone who takes pride in providing all those things, every time. I take my responsibilities as a photographer and the comfort of my models seriously. I am happy to work with either fellow male or female artists. For me this is a chance to improve my photography, a cool but serious hobby, and a fun way to make friends.
One more thing: I'm an easygoing guy and as a working professional very understanding of people's busy schedules. But if we make plans for a shoot, I do expect some advanced notice if you decide to cancel. I always show up to all of my shoots on time and ready to make great art, and being reliable and professional is a point of pride that I take very seriously. Emergencies happen, I understand those, but if someone cancels the day of (or late night before) without a reasonable excuse I consider that very disrespectful. Especially if I've already reserved studio space that I can't get back. Please respect me as much as I do you.
