Hello MM'ers! Thanks for stoping by. My name is Robert Minnick. I am the owner, primary photographer, and artistic director for Way Beyond Productions.
I am always looking for, and willing to work tfcd with, models for one of the following three themes:
The reflected nude shoots are either in the Way Beyond studio in a reflecting pool built for the purpose, or in any still waters anywhere in the world.
For the Faerie/Elf shoots I prefer to find a waterfall or other watery location. However I'm thinking of attempting a few fantasy creatures shoots in the studio.
The primary locations for my underwater work are Lake Rawlings, Va. and Key Largo Florida. I will also be happy to shoot with anyone who can get to Caribbean locations while I'm there.

I am only looking for those willing to work nude at this time. Though all shoots will not involve nudity, I've found that it's great when on location, if the opportunity presents itself for a fantastic nude shot, that the model is willing.

For models will not do nudes but want to work with me, my rates are as follows:
For studio work in the reflecting pool-$600.00 Minimum for up to three hours and $150.00 an hour after that.
For locations or other studio work- $400.00 minimum for up to three hours and $150.00 an hour after that.
I require a $200.00 deposit to hold the time, one half of the balance immediately following the shoot, and the remainder upon delivery of the CD
I guarantee 25 print quality images on a CD delivered within one week from each paid shoot. Tfcd shoots will have an agreed to number of images prior to the shoot.
Malena (Mermaid Sharkey MM# 347026) and I are also the owners of Chesapeake Bay Diving Center in Portsmouth, Va. We are working on a curriculum to teach underwater modeling, and have in place a course for underwater photography. Photographers and models interested in this please go to www.chesapeakebaydiving.com
I have worked in theater for the past 27 years, and recently have taken up photography. My experience in theater has given me an eye for the dramatic, and I am learning to apply that to my work.
My ambition is to produce fine art prints on canvas, using the Chiaroscuro (light and darknes) style developed by the great artists of the renaissance. Water is my great passion, and I love to combine it with the figure. In the studio I accomplish this with a reflecting pool I've built here, and outdoors, I work with water from small puddles to the wide oceans, and always I look for the lighting angle that carves the form out of the background.
It would be my honor to include you in my work...
