34 years of self taught photographic art. I do not do this as a source of income. It's about art. If I couldn't hang the finished product on my own wall, I'm not likely to be interested. That being said, I'm not out for hire. I do the hiring. I pick models that I think will work in the ideas that I have. I'm easy to work with if I see the attractive qualities that I like in the model that I choose. I'm not interested in doing pornography. I'll pay just about anything to hire a model that I like. I've actually been known to over-pay some models because I liked their look that much.
I'll work with inexperienced models because they are fresh and unknown and because if they are pretty to me, and are nice people, I'd like to help them get a modeling career off the ground.
