“We are a society that is obsessed with celebrity, much of it phony and unwarranted, completely lacking in substance, and often the creation of marketing campaigns.” The modeling industry is no different and prone to even greater exaggeration. Ripe with inflated egos and those who would tell you what you want to hear, it is often refreshing to hear the truth". GW Burns
I live by this credo and IF I give a compliment it is heartfelt and means something.
My passion is working with people (models, both male as well as female )and being able to capture edgy and artistic images I can cover a 1 hour radius between Rochester, Buffalo and Syracuse with a portable lighting setup.
I specialize in Glamour, Casual, Lingerie, Swimsuit, and Artistic nude, Erotic/Fetish, (Mostly Gothic but includes vintage, pinup and alternative/fetish genres).
THINGS I LIKE;
*Models who enjoy themselves but take their work seriously
*Picture that make people think
*Alternative, Bizarre images
*People who are down to earth and DONT think the world revolves around them
*People who are very beautiful and keep their heads on their shoulders
*Tattoos that are creative art
*People who have an artistic "Flair" to them
*People who can laugh at themselves and can get YOU to laugh at yourself.
THINGS THAT I DISLIKE
*People who are soooo narrow they can look through a keyhole with both eyes at once
*Portraits that look POSED
*People who feel that with money comes priveledge and respect.. RESPECT is something that is earned!
I am easy going.. I like to take my time and make try to make a photo shoot fun instead of work. I expect a model to act professionally at all times. He or she will be treated professionally at all times. I am a gentlemen first and a photographer second. If you feel you need to have an escort come with you on a shoot that is fine, just understand that they are there for your comfort level and should not be heard nor seen once the shoot begins.
I enjoy collaborating with the models I work with on ideas for images and themes, but have no problem with directing a shoot completely if needed. I love shooting all types of work, but truly love creating images that are out of the ordinary, whether that be something artistic, glamorous, sexy,edgy, dramatic, or just plain bizarre.
Please note that although I do shoot almost all areas and genres of modeling (As long as it is tastefully done), I will never ask anyone to shoot anything that they are not completely comfortable with...it's just not my particular style of operating.
I am an educated person and have years of experience working with people in all walks of life. I know that in order for anyone to take good images especially with a model with little or in some cases, nothing on, there has to be a unspoken comfortability between a model and a photographer. If that is not present then all a photographer is doing is taking a snapshot. If it is present and a model feels safe, secure, and just a bit vulnerable, then (POOF) you have truly captured great images as well as magical moments.
I have found that the most successful photo shoots are the direct result of careful planning, spontaneity and the blending of two creative minds.
