I'm switching gears after 25 years in performing arts production, branching into visual art. My main areas of interest are: Performing Arts Photography, Headshots, Martial Arts Portraits, and Artistic Portraits. This MM site is concentrated mainly in the last category.
With all that time around actors, dancers, musicians, and other performers, I am a straightforward, no-BS kind of person. I do this because I want to make beautiful images. I'm solid, reliable, and have an honest work ethic. I'm not here to waste anyone's time, and I don't expect my time to be wasted. I don't believe people should work for free. This doesn't always mean cash remuneration, but everyone should get something out of the work commensurate to the time and effort they put in. I am actively seeking TFP shoots as long as the trade works for both parties.
My rates are very reasonable and I'm happy to negotiate. I'm also apt to jump in on an interesting project, if asked, for the joy of the work. I will always retain copyright for my work, but I'm a pretty generous person.
I can now also be found on Zivity. New sets are pending! If you're a Zivity model (or are considering it) and would like to work on a set for a prize or just submissions, please get in touch! My profile: http://zivity.com/photographers/CSDCP/?ziv=CSDCP
Models, MUA's, and retouchers should feel welcome to make contact.
