I live in Southern New Jersey, minutes from Philadelphia. I mainly shoot individuals, couples, engagement, anniversary photos. I prefer outdoor natural light shooting although I do have experience with studio lighting.
I do a lot of work with families and couples and need models help keep my portfolio fresh and to try out new techniques as well as burn some creative energy I have, something that is hard to do with paying clients. Occasionally i have the need for models for a paying job and will post an offer. For paid shoots, I prefer to only deal with models i have worked with in the past so I can be confidant you can deliver what i expect.
I also do not care if you bring an escort, I need you to be comfortable for the session, so I prefer if not encourage it. For your own safety you really should be bringing one when doing any shoots with anyone you dont know.
I often browse recent activity and I will shoot you a PM if I like your look and if I think we can do a shoot that will mutually benefit our portfolios.
