Thank you for looking at my profile. If I have contacted you, you may have some questions, such as:
Well that's an easy one... I use the friends feature on this site to keep track of people that I have an interest in working with some day. If we are not geographically close to each other, don't worry, I travel a great deal. Anything is possible!
I am now primarily a fine art photographer. My work is sold exclusively in fine art galleries and similar off-line venues. It is always sold as one-off, signed original work, never as numbered prints or in other highly reproduced forms. I use my on-line portfolio only as a way to recruit models. I don't really need to add new images to my portfolio, so if you do not want the images we create together to appear on-line, that is fine with me.
Either one! I began my photography career in the high fashion world of New York City, where I lived for seven years. I am willing to do trade work with models who are willing to work with me on my fine art projects. Basically, we spend half the time doing whatever you need for your portfolio (fashion, swimwear, etc) and half the time doing fine art. You get edited images from the whole shoot for your portfolio. I do also pay models who are both experienced and have a look that is appropriate for my work. However, when I pay models, I typically do not also provide a copy of the images as part of the compensation. So, the choice is yours!
Absolutely! Although I usually don't pay models who do not have a significant amount of experience in fine art work, I am willing to work with models on a trade basis who are beginners or intermediates if they behave professionally and are willing to be coached. I thoroughly enjoy helping people develop new talents and passions!
