I am an easy going guy with a drive for photography which has become a passion for me. It is something that challenges me each and every time I shoot. Every time I step behind the camera I try to create an image capturing the scene, emotion and overall feel. To me, the main object of a photograph is to entertain the viewer, make the imagination take over and to make them want to see more. If I can do that in every shoot then I can say I am doing what I enjoy. I am here to pursue my passion, and create images of art of all kinds. I am looking for models to shoot with that can push the limits of the imagination. If you enjoy modeling and are creative, easy to work with and fun, I would love to hear from you and collaborate. I AM ALWAYS OPEN FOR WILD, CRAZY, OFF THE WALL IDEAS THAT ARE NOT THE NORM!!!
I like to work with models in a collaborative way, both contributing to a concept so that it can be unique for both the model and photographer. I am open to work with many different models and types. I aim to take your photo, rather than create your photo. There are many great digital artists out there and credit goes out to them, but photography is taking an image, not creating an image. I have the ability to make an image how you choose, but in most cases, I do the least amount of editing and keep the photo 'real and captured', not captured and digitally produced.
What you can expect from working with me -
-You can expect the respect and undivided attention a model deserves
-You can expect me to be on time to every shoot and prepared to shoot upon arrival
-You can expect each shoot to be conducted in a professional manner regardless of shoot type
-You can expect that what my model release and contract says, is exactly what will be followed
-You can expect to learn a thing or two from each shoot
-Your confidential information and privacy of name or contact will remain as such if you choose
-Any and all publication of images, or intent of will be stated clearly in model release before a shoot begins - ALWAYS
-I will provide entire shoot on CD if requested
-You can expect to have fun!!
What I will not do, or promise -
-I do not make the promise of publication
-I do not make the promise making you the 'next big thing' or lots of money
-I do not make the claim of being the 'best in town' or 'the go to photo guy'
-I will not ask you to shoot something you are not comfortable with
-I DO NOT sell any photos of any kind to adult sites or any sites - EVER
I do understand that some use this site as a hobby or means of secondary income, but I do expect the same amount of professionalism as if it were their full time profession. Lots of time and money go into creating great images, and if you are going to be late, or cancel, I would expect the same amount of professional courtesy I would give in communicating with whom I am working with.
More of my work can be available upon request. (Respect to model agreements)
