I am an official photographer for the NY Bombshells (www.thebombshells.org) and The Modified Dolls of NY/PA
Currently I accept some trade shoots with models. This is generally done with those I have worked with in the past. But if we have not worked together, and you have an awesome idea, don't be afraid to ask.
I consider every shoot to be a collaboration with the model, so never hesitate to toss an idea at me. I have considerable experience with new models and I would love to work with you to develop your portfolio. I'm very patient and I have a very laid back style. Our shoot will be fun, productive and without pressure.
Here's a quote from a recent model I worked with, "You're seriously the nicest, most open minded person I've shot with yet. I truly still feel great from yesterday. I haven't had fun in so long. Thank you very much." Venus MM# 2768116
I always put a credit to the model I worked with in the Picture. Just message her and have a discussion about me. I'm confident in myself and my professionalism enough that I do not have to be a middle man in fielding questions between you. Ask away.
WHAT I REQUIRE:
1) PROOF OF AGE: I will take a picture of your official picture ID at our first shoot for my records, before we begin shooting. I typically do not shoot with models under 18 years of age. I will make some exceptions provided a parent or guardian is on board!
2) A SIGNED RELEASE. I will ask you to sign my release at the beginning of each shoot. I will not shoot without a signed release unless you specifically hire me for a private shoot. NO exceptions.
3) A PRE-SHOOT MEETING if we have never worked together before. You get a sample copy of my release to keep, so you can become familiar with it. We get to meet and get acquainted. You get to see I'm not a creep, I get to see if you look like the pictures in your portfolio. These meetings are held in a safe, public place like a coffee shop or some casual restaurant convenient to you.
ESCORTS: I do not have a problem as long as the person is unobtrusive. If your escort is willing to help me with things like holding a reflector, I'll take advantage of the offer, but it is not a requirement. In my experience, husbands, boyfriends and parents do not make good escorts. Even the most experienced models very often get self conscious with them watching, but if they are your preference, I don't object.
BODY ART: I have no problem with either tattoos or piercings.
NO nudes? NO implied nudes? NO PROBLEM! You set the limits, I respect them. I will never try to talk you into something you're not comfortable doing.
I am always on time and ask the same consideration from you.
I am very easy to work with and am willing to shoot almost anything. Don't be afraid to ask!
I can also do retouches of other work you have. Just ask!
