Experienced, professional photographer. Always interested in discovering and photographing new people. Very friendly. Feel free to say hi.
I used to find Model Mayhem extremely helpful in finding new talent, and creative people who are serious about being models. Things have changed, however, and there seem to be a lot of shady people on here, lately. My advice to aspiring models and talent is to get photographed as much as you possibly can, and don't trust people who claim to be agents / managers / scouts on here. There are legitimate scouts, but no top agency needs to recruit models on this site, and 'managers'??? Seriously? Managers are for established artists with a lot of money. If you want to model - then model! Take advantage of this site's creative talent, and avoid the b.s. artists! Forget about getting paid, unless you're doing a job for a client! Forget about how experienced a photographer is. Make a little time, be professional, and have fun! That's how people get discovered!
Rates vary. I'm willing to do limited, TFCD, if I'm looking for a particular look / idea for my book, and if I'm not too busy. If I tag/comment/send you a message, it's because something about you intrigues me, and I'd like to photograph you. If I friend request you, same thing, but probably out of messages. If we talk about shooting, please don't be intimidated to follow up. I don't say yes unless I mean it.... But I am busy, and appreciate models who show that they're motivated.
