Due to the number of model "no shows" I have encountered, I now will not be scheduling my time to do a shoot without meeting you first to see if you are serious about this as I am.
As a photographer, I need to know where you, as a model, are trying to go. It helps me to provide you with images that will help you achieve your direction.
Another photographer friend of mine, owner of Cyber Zed Photography, had a GREAT paragraph in his bio on TF work which was this:
"A word about trade" - Many models on the net think trade shoots (TFP) are bad, and if they have done a few of them and didn't get any images I would totally understand. Trade is meant to explore concepts / techniques you might not otherwise try. It is also a way to keep your portfolio current, which if you are a model looking for paid work is not such a bad thing. If you are a model who is looking for paid shoots, but you don't consider trade. That's cool and your choice, but your portfolio best be up to date and fabulous. A trade shoot doesn't mean you are married to the photo or the day is taken up by shooting. I've done trade shoots that were under twenty minutes. It all depends on the preparation by model and photographer. Then you get something new and maybe a bit different than what you would have done if you were shopping for paid work. "
Very good advice!
I have found that working with women and bringing out their "inner Goddess" has been the most rewarding of all. I am on a mission to help make women look and feel confident, beautiful, and down right SEXY, whether she is a model or the everyday girl next door!
"OPEN MINDS PAVE THE WAY TO CREATIVITY"
I give my "all" when working and doing shoots before, during and after.
I strive to create stunning and thought-provoking images, bringing out the beauty and energy of my subjects.
I enjoy working with models/props and fashion. I hope to "tell a story" when I take a picture, and sometimes the story gets wonderfully crazy! My collection of shoes/lingerie/corsets is extensive, as I do Boudoir Photography. I am hoping to find some lovely curvy models who can help me promote my Boudoir website,
I have a separate photography business specializing in " portraiture and weddings. THAT website is: http://www.TinaAraquistainPhotography.com
It would be very fulfilling to work with a lesser experienced model to provide the confidence building images she will get from working with me.
I will work with models needing portfolios on a TFP basis, so do not hesitate to contact me for help doing so. I will try to work you in my schedule. What type of shots would you like to have in your port? Let me know and together we'll create what you want for your port. to be complete.
"YOU DESERVE ONLY THE BEST"
You will get nothing but quality when working with me or else I will not take on the assignment.
This is who i am. If I ask you to be my friend, I am hoping to get to know YOU. I do not "Friend people for the number. I "friend" for the honor of connecting with you and (hopefully!) working with you.
