IMPORTANT MESSAGE: I don't hire models except in the rare instance when a client asks me to. I earn my living at photography and I don't hire models for my portfolio, but if you are interested in TFWhatever, I sometimes do shoots if we can come up with a great idea together.

ABOUT ME (I hope)
Professional photographer (Atlanta Boudoir Photographer) located in Atlanta & Roswell (not THAT Roswell - although there are similarities) GA. I have a 1500 Sq Ft studio in Sandy Springs. It's a fully equipped studio and almost everything you see on this site or my website was shot there or my home studio (even some that weren't shot there look like they were) - the studio has electricity and a functioning bathroom - with a shower (heat and cooling are seasonal...)
Although my primary business and interest is Boudoir, Glamour, Maternity, Intimate, Erotic, and Art Nude photography - my skill set is much more diverse (at least that's what I've been told). My client base is from all over the US and I have had clients come in from other countries as well. My work has been published globally and locally here in the Atlanta area.
I offer a full range of photographic services and products. Visit my website to see more of my work, read client testimonials, and review my services. Atlanta's Preferred Boudoir Photographer - Casual Elegance Photography®

AND NOW --- Introducing STUDIO 7730 my headshot, family, portrait, and pet photography side of Casual Elegance Photography. www.studio7730.com
I've been told that I'm totally insane (it came to me naturally - my whole family was that way), crazy, and some have actually said that I am fun to work with (who knows, maybe they were insane too). I know what most of the buttons and dials on the camera and lights are for and remember what they do during a shoot at times. I know that an F-Stop is different from a Bus Stop and that if the electricity is not working the pictures will come out dark if we are shooting in the studio with the curtains closed. I also know how to put the lens on and off the camera without dropping it (well, at least not dropping it all the time). I have a bunch of lights and most of them work - but it looks really cool when they are all set up - now I have to figure out how to use them - going to buy some bulbs for them one day. I have a fondness for creativity and fun at a shoot. I enjoy working with people who are comfortable in their skin, are not afraid of being nude, and want to create beautiful images without drama.
I encourage models to bring someone with them to my studio and I usually have soda, water, and candy available at the studio (told you that I'm insane...). My studio is very comfortable, private and I try to keep it clean...
Yes, I do TF(put your own letter here) when I have time and the idea interests me. I fully believe that when I shoot TFP that I am providing the subject with an excellent trade of services, so please don't ask for compensation when it's TFP (I don't) - when you do, you hurt my feelings because it sounds like my work isn't worth anything to you - I may even get a complex (I don't need any more). Then I have to think (and that hurts my head) of how to reply nicely because I really don't want to hurt your feelings either. Oh, I almost forgot... when I shoot TFP, unless it's an art nude shoot, the model has either got to know how to do their makeup for photography or there needs to be a MUA at the shoot. Sorry, but I'm a real believer in the power of good makeup. Besides, the smells of all that stuff makes the studio smell really cool.
In addition... please plan to show up on time for the shoot. It's rather insulting to me if you are late and have not contacted me about being late. It's like you don't really feel my time is worth your effort. If you are more than a half hour late and haven't called to say that you are running late, you may arrive to a locked studio because I don't like hanging around wasting my time. And, please leave the drama at home. I am a professional and I will make sure the shoot is done professionally without introducing any drama into it. I run a business, not a dating service. I believe that the human form is a work of art and beauty - I treat my shoots with that in mind.
If you are going to shoot nudes with me I encourage you to bring someone to the shoot with you and please be prepared to show one or two picture IDs of yourself for my records. I take the law seriously and so should you.
Note: I do not let unedited images out of the studio so please don't ask because I hate the word "no". I typically provide one image per outfit/look - normally about 8 images per shoot - the best of the best.
