About MeOver 30 years of photography experience with a fashion photographer as a relative (none of it carried over in my genes).
I started in photography to capture images of models for sculpting. That carries over to what you might expect in direction from me now: trying to sculpt ideas out.
I try to capture light in such a way that the viewer sees what the model is representing, a message, story, or an emotion: Subtle and intriguing, titillating and tantalizing.
Regina Pagles put this succinctly:
"It is not my goal to portray & document the subjects' PERSONALITY. Their personality is of no importance to me. If, somehow, it comes through in the image, it was not my intention. Rather, my objective is to give the subject CHARACTER, not necessarily their own."
I am thinking it's like trying to capture the subtleties of someone on the cusp of acting out, but without their knowledge or prior planning.
Right now I am shooting about 12 hours a month in the studio.
Open to exploring ideas, building portfolios, drinking good coffee, paid or trade compensations. It all depends.
