Thank you for your interest in reviewing my profile. I will consider test shoots with aspiring models. Please send me an email if you are interested in booking a shoot.
I am a professional photographer in Charlotte, NC specializing in commercial though I do some catalog, fashion, glamor and fine-art. I am available for portfolio updates and enhancement, some on a TFCD basis if it is something that will also work for my stock. If in doubt, please ask. I have plenty of standard catalog/fashion images and for TFCD am mostly interested in fine-art or at least a mix that includes fine-art. I have ongoing commercial assignments in the area and also teach workshops periodically.
Please do not contact me if you are not serious about your work and mine. If you book a shoot, show up on time and prepared to work. You will need to bring your ID and you will need to sign a proper release.
I have a large commercial studio near downtown Charlotte and just minutes from I-85 and I-77. My studio is well appointed with a large kitchen/dining area, private dressing room with makeup counter and mirrors, full kitchen for catering, etc. I have hundreds of items in my wardrobe many left over from previous shoots, catalog shots, etc. plus lots of experience. I can help update almost any portfolio.
Models: If you need to cancel a shoot with me, please give me as much notice as possible. I know things come up--that happens to all of us. That's cool. Just let me know...ahead of time. Just like you, I prefer to book time and work with people on a professional level.
Models are ALWAYS welcome to bring a friend with them to the shoot. I have a comfortable reception area that your friend can use to relax, read, etc. If your friend/companion is a model themselves and will be shooting, they are welcome to be on the set/in the dressing room, etc. We have wireless internet available if they want to bring a computer. Your escort will need to understand that you are at the studio to WORK.
Many, many thanks to the models I have worked with over the years. Most have been true professionals and I appreciate their efforts and work.
Models: if you're not interested in a test shoot, please don't expect me to refer you to an art director or client for a booking. I simply cannot refer a model with whom I have not worked.
Photographers: I've had many no-show and late cancellations from models in our area. Please feel free to contact me for feedback. This seems to be the norm for online models these days. For now I will continue to try and work with them as it lends competition in the industry but I am considering going back to brick and mortar agencies exclusively. Feel free to contact me in regard to specific models if you're curious about reliability. Anyone appearing in my work is highly recommended.
Multiple publications on local, regional and national basis (The Charlotte Observer, WBTV, South Charlotte Weekly, Black & White, Oxygen Magazine, Today's Custom Home, etc.) Multiple solo and multi-artist shows as well as themed shows and events such as charity auctions. Multiple juried contests where my images have won or placed.
