Photo-shoots are supposed to be fun and mutually beneficial.
You can see from my port that I like to work repeatedly with the same models - I like the relation of a "muse" and photographer and prefer the comfortable feeling of respect established over time and many shoots.
I am not making money from my photography - I am doing it as a creative outlet and I work best with models who feel the same.
For me photography is an artistic expression.
Photography is about light and movement and colors. I approach each photoshoot as a work of art: usually I have an idea of what I want to do and each click of the camera is another brash stroke toward the final picture. I am happy if I can get ONE exceptional shot after a two hour shoot.
I like to explore:
Right now I am interested in
glamor, artistic nudes, Anything that will allow some artistic creativity. I like narrative, the photo should try and tell a story.
I have no issues with nudity: the garment a model is wearing is there to enhance his/ her personality not to cover out of modesty. Sometimes no garments are required.
I believe that a "Model" is a person who is better able and willing to express him/herself in front of the camera. (So please no Divas!) At the same time a photographer is just a person with a concept that can and willing to operate a camera.
All that matters is the result: Great results can only be achieved by the -!!! collaboration !!! - of the two people.
