I have been doing photography/videography for fifteen years all over the US including LA, NYC, Miami and many others. I have shot for many magazines and companies. I use Model Mayhem for Trade For Content work only that benefits my portfolio specifically. The main purpose is to fill in the gaps of my Professional Portfolio and Professional Website. In other words, it's my choice to shoot you and I do not pay models on Modelmayhem.
I am a veteran photographer and I discover new and fresh faces that have the potential to become professionals. It is important to me that you have a great attitude, have creative poses and do not harbor an ego. The reason I choose to do Trade For Photos work only on this particular site is due to the fact that I do get paid outside this entity and doing Trade For work produces a different result. Also, I know the model in front of the camera really wants to be there and could use the photos to help build their portfolio. Thank you for your interest.
