I’m a bit of a photography dilettante with years of experience and study getting back into shooting again. This is a retirement avocation for me , thus a creative outlet. I’m not a “working professional” nor am I a fauxtographer looking to exploit models and I'm certainly not digitally dating.
I need high quality images to stay current on lighting and editing techniques. I shoot in a professionally equipped home studio and outside in my garden when the weather permits. I'm looking for dependable local models (and M/U & Hair Artists!) with realistic expectations that perhaps need a "book of looks" in exchange for some of my working theme projects.
My personal working themes are moving towards the arts; beauty & some glamour, just not as graphic arts projects. Always of interest are; fine arts style, Chiaroscuro/ B&Ws, Classic Harrell lighting or Hollywood glamour portraiture, femme fatale, Boudoir, Film Noir or the more European sensual styled themes.
I am open, honest, friendly and above all, professional and I do expect the same. I work hard on meeting the image goals we set. Life gives only so much time to all, so please don't waste either of ours. Especially, don't flake on the day of the shoot with some such silly "excuse".
