I'm Brian G. I'm an agency approved photographer. I specialize in portfolio development, headshots, and comp card creation for models who want or need agency quality images. I also create content for posters, calendars, syndication, magazine submissions, and more. My rates are very reasonable, I'm easy to work with, my turn around time is quick, and I have an incredible studio that can give you looks you won't get elsewhere. If you want cookie-cutter photos that look like senior portraits, are shot at rediculous angles and tilts, and have fake backgrounds and fantasy retouching that make agencies laugh, I'm not your photographer. But if you're serious about your modeling career and want to work with a professional that will take the time to create images that have a purpose I can help.
Most of the models in my portfolio are NFL cheerleaders and cover girls, signed models with top agencies, models that have been in Maxim or similar, professional/olympic athletes, and competitive swimsuit models including a Miss Bikini USA.
I have been published countless times. I was the Art Director and senior photographer for a magazine publishing company. I have worked with dozens of top touring bands creating official content for websites, promotions, endorsements, advertising, music magazines, designing cds, etc. I have guest lectured numerous times in a graduate level communications program. I have created portfolio content for such agencies as Elite. I have been a photographer for both an NFL football and cheerleading team and have designed and photgraphed NFL swimsuit calendars.
I have arguably the finest studio in the Buffalo-Toronto region. It compares to the best available in markets such as NYC and Los Angeles. It features custom hard wood floors, a photo shower, sauna, black granite and stainless kitchen, fashion staircase, French doors, high end furniture, an abundance of natural and studio light, and a full salon.
Please understand that I receive dozens of requests weekly from models asking to shoot TFP with me. While I'm very flattered the simple reality is that I'm a full-time photographer with an expensive studio and as such my focus is on delivering exceptional service to my commercial clients. I do welcome collaboration offers from models, wardrobe stylists, makeup artists, hairstylists, and clothing designers if they are exceptional and have a concept that will add to my portfolio or be used for submissions to better magazines or outlets.
Please note that out of respect to the various individuals involved in any given shoot, and to help maintain a professional work environment, my studio is closed to all but those persons directly working on the shoot.
