I am a full time professional photographer, I am available for model shoots, book me, bookings are coming in, thanks
When booking me, please be sure you confirm the night before, there is no way I will waste gas for a no show. It is not fair to me and others who are wanting a photo session when you don't have a minute to either confirm or cancel.
Please read the first statement below, typed in bold font.
I am an on location photographer, that means I travel to the model whether it be indoors or outdoors for photo shoots. I have strobes that are portable and I can turn a room into a mini studio.
I prefer a relaxed atmosphere between the model and photographer, meaning, not a stiff shoot. I am easy going and fun, majority of models will say "Mike's Fun" others have mentioned they felt comfortable and yet others say that I am informative.
I have no issues with escorts, though, I would prefer you bring a friend instead of a Girlfriend/Boyfriend. I always manage to have them help too.
I request you not for how many contacts I can get, I request you as a contact to have an opportunity to work with you, and or help you build a portfolio. Now that you have accepted me as a potential photographer to work with you, message me and lets do a shoot.
If you live in Hamilton or close to it, message me if you would like a shoot at Albion Falls
Hi, I'm Mike, I am 50 years old and living in Woodstock Ontario. Formerly known as Mike Hodgson Photography, my brother has joined forces as my admin/IT/assistant/manager, thus the name change. Special thanks to my friend Bobby Middlebrooks for the creation of the logo.
I am a professional photographer and have been involved in photography for 30 years. I graduated from Fanshawe College 2 year full time photography program.
I photograph many dancers, professional and from dance studios across Ontario.
My work includes professional musicians, fitness/body building, bands, sports, commercial, families, engagements, weddings, maternity.
I am published and some of my photographs have been aired on CTV for Manitoulin Living and on CHCH TV 11 Hamilton.
I do TF, just ask me, pay my gas would be a kind gesture for a TF shoot if outside of the GTA
If you would like a shoot, contact me and let me know what interests you, I do on location shoots, either indoors or outdoors, especially looking to do Fitness/Dancers/Bikes/Cars/Lingerie/Bikini/Nudes/Parts.
YOU WILL NOT BE ASKED TO DO NUDES, it is only on a voluntary basis.
I am Registered, Insured and Published
I've been inspired by many people here on M.M. that have health issues. I was especially moved by Karen Kryzanowski #703001 bio. I am encouraged by reading stories and motivation and trying various means to do what they enjoy, be it modeling, fitness, photography etc. is what causes me not to give up.
I have L5 - S1 fusion, two rods in my lower back and I live with Chronic pain everyday. After meeting and working with Melissa Yates and her Personal Trainer again inspired, I am now on a slow process of losing weight and eating right according to my blood type. With all that is going on, my passion for photography will not stop. My first love is nature, I like to be alone with nature, it is theraputic, the sounds, the air, the scenery and wildlife all have a part to energize me. Since this posting of fall of 2011, I have lost 50lbs, I now weigh 200lbs summer of 2012. I went from a xxl to a large, from 38 waist pants to a 34. See the picture in my portfolio, that's one of the big reasons why I have a smile on my face.
Retouching Editing With the current trends happening, one must keep up their skills either behind the camera or editing. Although I prefer photographing my subject, I am progressing in my retouching skills. My inspiration comes from a number of retouching artists here on M.M. a big thank you for also sharing your approach and ways.
Dancing in the streets
Anyone can take pictures, I take photographs. Your expression and emotion is important, I see and will capture You.
I like a friendly, relaxed and fun atmosphere.
I am creative in photoshop, not only will you get natural photographs, some will be, either in B/W, sepia, or gritty. I don't use photoshop to make you look plastic or to cover up in camera mistakes, I use photoshop to develope the photograph and to be creative when needed.
Models, beware of photographers who have no Business License and charge for sessions, don't pay them.
I'm willing to travel anywhere within Ontario or Michigan East, within reason.
I like to work with "Themes"
Bikini/Fitness, Bikes/Cars, Pin Ups/Glamour, Editorial/Commercial/Lifestyle.
Looking forward to working and meeting with you.
