About MeSteve Roger Smith Photography, LLC. is a company that provides images of all types for people of all types. Whether it be Weddings, Senior portraits, Maternity, Family, Glamour, Head Shots or anything you can think of.
As a former actor, I know what it is like to be in front of the camera and use those skills and my experience to bring the most out of our shoot. For over 30 years now, have been challenging myself creatively, utilizing skills of improvisation, and also teamwork. The last one, teamwork is maybe the most critical as it applies to my sessions. As the subject in FRONT of the camera you have the biggest stake in the session so it is my belief that you also have a part in the creative portion. I enjoy shooting the female figure and the interplay of light and form. I'm easy to work with and encourage suggestions from models.
Among the concepts and techniques that I love to play with are: bodyscapes reflection/refraction, shadow-and-light patterns, and DoF perspectives. When the weather allows it, I love shooting outdoors.
I like the shoot to be casual and relaxed with banter. Humor is especially nice. If you expect to just show up and pose, we're probably a bad fit as a team. That doesn't mean I'm looking for a friend or a relationship, only that it shows in the results if we had a few laughs or moments of silliness in the shoot. Prior to any shoot, I like to meet and break the ice. Expect me to reconfirm with you and provide a lot of details about props, costumes, styling and themes. Hint-hint: that's a really good time for you to push back or ask questions or offer ideas--regardless of your experience level.
I'm fine with you bringing an escort. I'll show you the release ahead of time and am okay about modifying it if you have any special concerns. If you want to check references, contact the models in my portfolio.
I do shoot mostly TFCD since I'm not publishing or selling any of my work. My purpose for shooting with you is to build my portfolio as well as yours. The more diversified my portfolio is, the better it is for my business. The more diversified yours is, the better it is for you. Not to mention, it gives us both practice. Unless you're contacting me to get some specific shots for your portfolio or unless this (modeling) is your full-time gig, I assume that our initial shoot is likely to be a TFCD arrangement. My deal with TFCD is this: we pick a few themes (cosplay, head shots, period clothing, swimsuit, whatever) that you want to shoot.
Big negatives for me:
*no communication (prior to the shoot or during it)
*showing up late or not showing up. If you can't make it or are running late, at least
let me know.
*being unprepared for our shoot. That includes being high or drunk.
But first, I need to hear from you.
