I have been doing photography since 1976, mostly landscape/nature type of things with a few model shoots. As far as experience, I studied 4 years under the late Master Photographer Jimmy Kluttz (former student of Ansel Adams) and went on to teach photography for 17 years.
Lately I have been doing exclusively model shoots and came to MM to network with models to help build my port and hopefully help them. I will do TFP/TFCD if it is a shoot that will benefit my port, something with a unique look, or just something that looks plain fun to do. In the case of TFP/TFCD, if you travel, I will help with expenses within reason in most instances. If I contact you for a shoot, there is something that sparked my interest for a TF shoot. I do not solicit models to charge them to shoot their port and I don't want models soliciting me for paid work. If I have a paid job and need to hire a model, all details will be stated up front when I contact you.
If you need particular photos for port, print, etc., I have reasonable rates. I have no problem at all with models bringing escorts. In fact, I encourage it. All minors are required to have parent, legal guardian, or an adult appointed by parent/guardian at the shoot at all times. No exceptions.
As for me, I am very easy going with a positive and professional attitude and like to have fun shooting. I love location shooting and interacting with the surroundings. I will NEVER try to get a model to shoot anything outside his/her "comfort zone". Its a simple thing called professionalism and respect and I give both to anyone I work with. I also like input from models if they have an idea for a shoot. I love anything different or unique. As you can see in my port, I have a wide variety of themes and styles that can be accommodated. If anyone wants to shoot, just contact me and we will see what we can work out.
