I like bold colors, fun locations as well as accommodating models. My idea of "model" is not the bean pole blonde. I feel as though everyone has something fantastic to offer.
I like to have fun, take risks, and prefer the dramatic effects of natural light. I'm constantly searching for new unique angles and love outdoor sessions. All retouching is done to make your natural skin look clean, not airbrushed. I also have a deep appreciation for black and whites, alternative/goth models, extreme locations (rockfaces, water, etc), music of all kinds from metal to jazz, and high contrast images.
Before a shoot, I like to have a meet and greet or perhaps a phone conversation with the model. I feel that it really helps to have at least some familiarity the between model and photographer before a shoot. Escorts are always welcome as just as long as they don't interrupt the process in any way.
I'm currently accepting TF work on a limited basis depending on shoot type and concept. Paid work will always come first. TFP shoots will get you 20-30 High Resolution edits and 20-30 images for web use. I love to work models of all experience levels. I'm all about working together to have fun and to enhance each other's portfolios. Contact me to discuss!
I am very interested in using Model Mayhem as a tool to expand my portfolio with new and up and coming models in my area.
