Mayhem # 2710
Artist and Photographer, working Freelance, always looking for something new and exciting to shoot.
I studied Art and Media studies in Ireland at the National college of Art and Design, but not for long as most of the tutors were assholes, who had nothing to teach. So for the most I am self taught. I work always from my raw emotions. I have had a number of exhibitions around LA and Chicago.
Currently Working on a few Photography books due for release soon.
I have had the great pleasure of working with many Fab models in LA and a few from around the country. And some great models from Europe
I am only interested in working with professionals I don't want to deal with Time Wasters. I am a professional photographer. and wish to be treated that way. Please extend me the same respect that I extend to you. Do not ask to work with me and then flake out. If you make an appointment KEEP IT!. If for some reason I fail to get back in contact with you it is because I am busy working and trying to get projects finished. I try to stay on top of keeping in contact with models and makeup artists, but sometimes my schedule changes at the last minute....the joys of being a designer! So sorry in advance!
Fetish shoots are only done if I am interested or working on projects for shows, magazines, books etc.
PLEASE NOTE: I am not a content photographer for websites unless I get something out of the deal.... Promotion or use of images, or money.
I MAINTAIN ALL COPYRIGHT OF IMAGES. NO EXCEPTIONS.
I keep track of all the people I work with and tend to use models more than once.... if we have a good working relationship.
I work with nudes a lot..... so if you are offended by these type of images, I may not be the guy for you.
Besides all that we try to have fun at my shoots and spend alot of time laughing... we need to be comfortable together.
I hope to work with some of you in the future!
As a side note, and not to offend anyone.... I am going to start being very picky about who I add to my list of contacts, adding everyone is just going to get out of hand, so it will be limited to Models and Photographers that have
a Look and Feel that appeals to me. I have noticed a lot of people who say "Very Experienced", but it just does not carry over in their profiles. I intend to use this site to work with others and that is what I base most of my decision on.
I am always available to shoot people to help build a portfolio, at a reduced rate....Yes I have fees,but they are not crazy.... when your portfolio starts to look professional I will start to add you.
