After being a model for a long time I decided to see how things looked like from the other side of the camera and so far the journey has been a blast.
Having been a model myself, I still carry that same enthusiasm about photography and love being daring. I do enjoy weird and fun locations that sometimes require climbing/walking long distances, but will of course work with each individual's needs.
My rates vary depending on the shoot at what it entails, but usually starts at $150 for headshots. This gets you two hours of my time with as many changes of scenery and attire as we can fit in there. Two weeks later you get back a set of about 10-20 amazing photos for your portfolio.
I do very select TFP. Feel free to contact me to ask me for possible interest though. I am always interested in conceptually audacious shoots.
And because this has come up more than once with different models now, here are a few very important things you need to know about working with me:
**No, you cannot help me choose which of the photos we took that are up for editing. As a photographer you have to trust that I am fully capable of picking the best looking photos for you and your figure and the look we are going for. If you cannot see from my work that I have what it takes to make those choices, then please go to another photographer. Yes, this is a part of my job and I take it seriously.
**No, I will not give you any unedited photos and no I will not edit an extra 10 or 20 photos from our shoot without being paid for them individually. As a professional photographer you must understand that I only want my (our) best work out there for everyone to see. When I tell you you'll get 5-10 wonderful photos, that should be plenty for everyone to see you at your (and my) best.
And after that, a quick disclaimer: I'm not a grumpy photographer, I am so happy to work with you and your needs and figure out what works for everyone, but I also want to make sure that everybody's time and art is respected as we go along.
