About MeWILL DO SOME FREE WORK FOR CREDIT (since Im new on this site)
I didn't set out to be a photographer... It just kind of happened. I couldn't tell you why for sure. What I can tell you is that I really love what I do and I spend a lot of time refining, perfecting and even obsessing over my work... It is a passion.
I have spent a lot of time reflecting on things such as what is my "style" of photography. Style comes with time and is a difficult thing to force. I think more important than style is being aware of the literal nature of the image I see and striving to go beyond that in an aesthetic sense to create a captivating image.
I Meet With ALL Clients/Models Before We shoot:
Both for paid work and TF for my Gallery Projects. I meet all clients and/or models in a public place to collaborate go over the Concepts, Ideas, Set Boundaries as far as poses and nudity and see if our personalities click and make sure everything is clear and understood.
I also sometimes take a couple of pictures just to see how you photograph. I do not work for or with anyone I don't click with or don't like, paying or not.
And I never bring anyone to my home or a location home or studio, where I often shoot unless I have met with them first in a public place. The practice has resulted in greater comfort for me and my clients/models, and the location home or studio owner and better images and also weeds out the flakes, non-collaborative, and nut jobs!
For Non-Commercial Model Portfolio/Zed Card/Headshots
$500 Per Look - Includes 3 Fully Retouched Final Images
(If you are willing to sign a model release so I can use the image in my Art Projects I'll cut my rate by 50% to $250 Per Look)
Additional Images Available At An Additional Charge
Multiple Look Discounts And Package Deals Available
*For local to me locations shoots at your location there will be an additional charge of $100-$300 depending on distance, travel time and equipment brought to the shoot.
When I say yes to one client I have to say no to another for that reason if the client does not follow though I lose money. So I require a non-refundable deposit of 33%-50% depending on what the shoot requires as far as location, special set up, number of looks, etc...
