ART: Is an intentional arrangement of things - physical or otherwise
to elicit an emotional response! Art - Must - Make people feel!
I am a freelance photographer with over 30 years experience. Throughout the years I have specialized in Glamour, Beauty & Figure Photography, Model Portfolios and Portraiture. I have additional background experience in Advertising, Annual Reports, Home Inventories, Products, Weddings & Party photography.
I enjoy shooting artsy/creative/conceptual photos and I am open to all ideas and requests. I'm not afraid to work with unique or touchy concepts or subjects (as long as they are legal). If you have an idea for a shoot that you would like to try just let me know what you are thinking and maybe it can be something that we can create together.
I have several projects that I am currently working on. Some of these projects are TFP shoots where others are paid. For the paid shoots I offer a minimum of $25 per hour clothed and $50 per hour for nudes/implied.
For the following projects I am open to working with pretty much anyone. If you are new to modeling and looking to get some experience I will be more than happy to provide that. If you are an experienced model looking for some new or different images for your book, or just to update what you have, there might be something here for you too.
White Space Project
I am looking for multiple experienced models for this project. Initially I just need two/three but will need a minimum of 14 models (or maybe more) for this project.
Caucasian | Black | Asian
Long hair (below shoulders) (prefer: 1. Redhead, 2. Blond, 3.Brunette)
Height: Petite - 5' or shorter, or, 5'10" or taller (with weight proportionate)
Age: 18-24 preferred but will work with 25-45 year olds on a case-by-case basis.
Prefer someone with dance or gymnastics experience (for the limberness) but willing to discuss with newer or less experienced models
These will be indoor, studio type shots, on a white background. Very high-key.
Each shot will be different. There will be different styles, props, looks and amounts of clothing in each shot. Shots will range from swimsuit, to cosplay, to lingerie, to topless and full nude. Each shoot will be adjusted to work with the individual model but also conform to the overall theme.
Black & White Portfolio
I am working on creating a series of images for an upcoming show. I would like to have a minimum of 10 images for this show but would prefer to have an even 12. These images will all be in black & white. They will all involve some level of nudity, from implied to full nude (playboy style).
I am currently looking for female models to shoot implied nudes. (You will be covered in the images but will need to be nude in the studio for the actual shooting.) I am open to shooting with a pair of models that would like to shoot together. Feel free to E-Mail Me about this if you are interested.
I have a few basic ideas for the images - however I would love to have your input too. I like working with models who are creative, have a great personality and lots of character. This should be a relaxed and comfortable shoot. No real pressure or deadlines. Let me know what works best for you.
These are all paid shoots. Models must be at least 18 years old. You will need to sign a release and I will need a copy of your photo ID to go along with it.
I am seeking one or two female models, preferably in the Fuquay / Garner / Raleigh, NC area for an ongoing working relationship.
1. A guiding spirit.
2. A source of inspiration.
This would be an ongoing partnership between myself and the models with us each working together to push past our limits, to experiment and create new images that we couldn't have done otherwise. Working together to create something bigger and more profitable than any of us could have done alone.
I am looking for models that can become friends, where we are both on the same wavelength and have some of the same goals and ideas for photography both in style and status. Someone that I can also work together with on larger projects like; books, e-books, instructional videos, fun videos, displays and shows.
We would be working together as partners to create images and projects that we can both be proud of and that can make us both some money. And, this is a two-way street. The models will work with me on the projects that I have an interest in trying while I will also work with them to create any images that they would like to have or help them with any of their personal projects. - - - - - >
If you are a Model, Actress or Dancer and you are interested in working with me without incurring any expenses for my services you have come to the right place.
I am open to working with pretty much anyone. We do need to click on our photographic goals though. If you are new to modeling and looking to get some experience, I will be more than happy to provide that. If you are an experienced model and you are looking for some new or different images for your book, or just to update what you have, this might just be what you need. Maybe you aren't a model, maybe you are a Burlesque performer, a singer, a Roller Derby queen, it doesn't really matter, we can still work on these projects together and both get some new images that we wouldn't have had otherwise.
If you wish to book me as a photographer-for-hire, my rates and services are very reasonable in comparison to industry standards. If you contact me about us working together without specifically mentioning one of the above projects I am going to assume that you are looking to hire me as your photographer.
I am open to Barter and TF* shoots with select models, if I feel it can be mutually beneficial. All models are expected to sign a model release at time of shoot unless you are the one paying for the shoot.
I enjoy working with new models, helping to expand their portfolios while working on my own. I don't mind escorts at my shoots.
I feel that for a photographer to be a success they have to know themselves well. There has to be a yearning to create a particular look or feel in their images. The things that the individual photographer feels passionate about will always bring about the best images. I am a fan of the human form, both female & male, and I believe that this shows in my work.
