About MePROJECT UPDATE: I am working to build a new portfolio on my website. The niche I would like to really move towards is Female Glamour Portraiture. I am seeking models who would like to shoot TF*. This portfolio will consist of "Before & After" images. I will coordinate hair and make up. However, I am seeking a particular look so if I don't agree to use you for this project please do not be offended or disappointed. It doesn't mean we can't collaborate on a different project together. If you are interested please reach out to me.
I do ask that if we converse and you agree to collaborate whether you are the model, hair stylist or make-up artist that you honor your word if you commit to a shoot. If you don't think this project is something you want to be involved in then please say so in the beginning. Not after everyone is coordinated and a date set. And please do not send me a "Friends" request then ignore me when I reach out to you to collaborate.
About Me: I work full time to support my photography but understand photography has been a great passion of mine. I am always striving for the image with the “WOW” factor. I was a single full time dad so my photography had to take a back seat to my son but now that he is older I am trying to get behind the lens more to find that “edge”.
My Work: I started out doing a lot of sports and graduated towards special events. I have shot for companies such as Microsoft and Starbucks Coffee Company and sent on assignment to New Orleans and Houston. Special events are challenging because it takes more effort to produce creative art instead of handing over a bunch of snap shots.
Portraiture has been a favorite because I have always been captivated by the beauty of a woman.
My current direction: I would like to learn more fashion, beauty and boudoir though Female Glamour is the niche I am putting most of my effort.
TF*: Please do not be offended if you contact me and want to shoot TF but I decline. When I shoot I can easily spend 5 hours including set up and tear down. This doesn’t mean if I do accept to shoot you TF I will spend that much time. I still have my son I have to take care of so my time is very limited and if I am going to shoot TF it has to have an end result resulting in great images. Remember, the final image will represent my work as a credible photographer and you as a beautiful and credible model.
After the shoot is finished, I typically spend another couple 3 hours in front of the computer editing and post processing images. I do not provide any unedited images; most times I will provide 1-3 finished images per shoot that I feel represents my work the best along with the rest of the images that made the culling process. This can range from 10-30 unedited images. I will provide you with soft copies of these images for your portfolio. The images will have copy rights and have a minimum of 750px on the long side for web viewing.
Escorts: I do allow escorts on a shoot. I am more than happy to have a pre-shoot meeting with you to see if I am a good fit for you and you are more than welcomed to bring an escort/friend to this meeting as well.
Appointments: I will not reschedule any no-shows and or last minute cancellations; less than 48 hours notice. Please understand my time is valuable and in short supply. If you even think you might not make our shoot then please respect me and don’t even schedule. If this is a shoot where I am coordinating wardrobe and you (model, MUA or hairstylist) cancel after the fitting and wardrobe reservation then more than likely I will not work with you again.
