[b]About Me

I started as a hobby as an attempt to start an indie talent management company. As a stepping stone, I started with managing, sponsoring, and even promoting models to ring girls for local amateur MMA events. Unfortunately as the local amateur MMA craze began to die down and the involvement done nothing for me, I am now trying to pitch my movie script, Model Combat, to producers in Florida and Hollywood and make my own pitch videos to make this work as I prepare to move to Ohio. I require passionate models who want to be actresses to help me with this and, for the most part, am focusing my photography and videography efforts on this project.

I have also worked in film and TV, as well as live events. I seek to capture the most gorgeous girls I can find in hopes to provide a means to network within the entertainment industry, making both models and producers known about each other.

Please note:


- You must be 18 or older to work with me no matter the project and provide photo ID to be copied and kept on record upon request.
- I do NOT shoot male or transgendered models. I am a female-only model photographer, not a portrait or family photographer so I am very choosy in who I work with.
- Chaperones are acceptable to bring. I know models from all levels of professionalism who bring chaperones.
- I work with various models from various genres, from high-concept fashion to adult film stars and independent film actresses.
- I use an amateur consumer camera and amateur photo editing software. Yet I do pay published models to compensate for this and respectfully request that published models do not work free for me.

Safety & Security:

Safety and security for models that work for me is a priority. Despite the fact I am still a photographer, I am more of a film producer and want all models who interact with me to feel safe. Here is some helpful information:
* I have once worked as a security officer. I had to pass a FBI background check to get that job. I am eligible for rehire.
* I have also worked at Kennedy Space Center. I had to pass an extensive background check beyond a standard FBI check before I could even step foot on federal property.
* I can currently pass a background check and drug test, no problem. I don't even have as much as a speeding ticket on my record.

SELECTION CRITERIA EXCEPTIONS:

Want to work with me but do not qualify? You may qualify under an exception. Models who qualify as an exception may not be paid by me.

1. You want to pay me. In that case, since I have actually worked with a model who has physically appeared in PENTHOUSE MAGAZINE (April 2015) as that month's Penthouse Pet, if I am using an amateur camera, I charge $250.00/hour with a 2 hour minimum if you come to me. With a DSLR camera (limited availability) I am $350.00/hour with a 2 hour minimum if you come to me. Sorry but it's not worth my time and reputation to work with local girls who just want free photos. You'll get no more than 8 edited and watermarked photos and must sign a commercial release. This is open to any model, male or female, of any shape, color, and size.

2. You're friends of my friends. Under rare exceptions I may consider, and therefore 100% waive my fees if I feel you fall under this umbrella, any model who has worked with a professional contact whom I consider a friend. These are usually limited to anyone I have worked with that can be found on my IMDB link but a few exceptions do allow a few more girls to qualify under those I know but have never worked with.

3. You have previously worked for me before April 20th, 2015: Any model who has worked with me prior to this date, rather as a photographed model or a ring girl I managed, may work with me again free of charge.

4. You were a published model (see above for publishing samples - local and regional publications do not count - they must be well-established national and international brands) who modeled for me at no charge. There is only one model who has officially done this as of 4/20/2015, however, any model who has previously worked with me and becomes published would qualify for this exceptions pay rate at: 2 hours, paid at $100/hour with 30 minutes dedicated to nude poses.

5. Your likeness sells books or any commercial project you appear on. If you can sell at least 50 copies of any project or combination of projects you have contributed to you through your likeness you will be exempted from paying my fees but will only be paid travel and food expenses. I will determine sales based on the online merchants records I am working with (Amazon, Kindle, and Createspace as of 4/20/2015). I cannot vouch for other retailers sales, such as Barnes & Noble and Books-A-Million.

6. You meet very strict height/weight/age requirements. In this case you'd only be paid for travel and food expenses. Those requirements are 4'10" to 5'5", 90-115 lbs, ages 19-23 and have a physically fit and lean body, meaning you work out, and have not given birth.

7. Only model friends who meet any of these exceptions will actually be paid. These are models who see me more as a photographer and visit stores, eat at restaurants with me, and have even traveled with me on other shoots as an assistant. They don't charge for their time hanging out with me, since you don't pay friends to hang out with you. Model friends will be paid at the standard nude rate for a 2 hour shoot and must dedicate 30 minutes of that shoot time to nude poses (that means 1 hour and 30 minutes wearing outfits will be paid as if the model was nude for the whole 2 hours).

I do withhold my real name from appearing on this profile to prevent possible employment discrimination due to my high academic accomplishments. If you wish to know my real name, see a photo of me, and my film/TV accomplishments, please use the IMDB Link below my MM username above. If that does not work for you, you may search for me at http://www.imdb.com by using my IMDB identifier: nm5170039

* Based on model's own admission, whether on an official web or social media site, interview, or in-person

Model accomplishments are listed to demonstrate why I make a good choice in many of my published models.

All photographs appearing in this profile were taken by me except where noted. I uploaded them and gave proper attribution since I was the shoot designer and director, much of the same reason why a Makeup Artist may upload someone else's photos as it depicts his or her makeup creativity; so do mine as they demonstrate my shoot design and direction.
