About me
I’m a bit of a photography dilettante with years of study and experience in many aspects of the craft and I'm back into shooting again. I'm a photographer, not a customer and certainly not a fauxtographer.  I am seeking models that will work with me, not for me, to get the image .

This is my avocation, not my vocation these days. I have no revenue stream for your images nor do I pretend there is a market for them somewhere. Marketing is your job.  I shoot images and  I just want to get the best images I can to further my skills and help people along the way.

I believe in in three principles in model photography;  photography is light, pose it right, and keep it simple stupid.  The focus is the model. I am not trying to be cynical but do have some realistic expectations going into this, especially in your choices. 

I do not "Run & Gun" around town anymore, not into Chuckie Cheese-cake  shots,  shooting the local Graffiti Garage  nor do I find” spontaneity shoots” to have much value overall unless it is an exceptional model that really knows how to pose. Also not trying to recreate your high school  "MeMe" book.  Not to be negative here,  but know I just want to shoot the You as best as I can and know how to.

I am pretty laid back and certainly not pretentious but I still believe some timely communications is important especially in establishing the details of the shoot. “Hey, let’s shoot sometime” is worthless for planning/scheduling. 

I do send out confirmation email/message and expect replies firming up the  details. So please tell me something of your expectations. Otherwise, I will assume it's not to be much of a shoot or perhaps, it will end up a last minute cancellation using  " the top 10 lame excuses are... " list.  Let’s all understand that while life is unpredictable and some rescheduling is understood, life only gives so much time to all, so PLEASE don't waste either of our valuable time by being a flake or a fake.  Your time is no more important than any other's.

So be professional in your communication. If you can't market yourself, how do you expect others to?   You truly only get one chance to make that first impression.

My best to all in your career.
