General Shooting Requirements
I am very detailed and meticulous when it comes to my work I ask a lot of questions and have a lot of communication with the models I am going to work with. I am fine with corresponding via MM Messages or E-Mail to discuss project or a shoot...At some point before I shoot I expect to have at least 1 phone conversation and this is NON-NEGOTIABLE
. In some cases 1 pre-shoot meeting is required depending on how in depth the shoot will be but not always required. If any of the above is a problem, then I suggest you move on and I wish you nothing but the best of luck in your endeavors.
If I am contacting you to work with you, it is because I think you have a look that will go well with whatever project I am working on. I will be up front and honest on what I am looking for when I contact you. I am NOT
If you look at my images you will see images of several different styles & genres, some including implied nudity and nudity...If I am contacting you about shooting PLEASE DO NOT
assume that I want to shoot any kind of nudity with you...If that is what I am looking for I will say so when I initially contact you...as I said above I am NOT
into surprises...Thank you
If we are shooting out side you can bring along anyone you like, I would prefer it be a girlfriend as I need you at your best in front of the camera and in my experiences that has not been the case when a husband or boyfriend (guy friend) is looking over my shoulder…Not set in stone , but it is strong a suggestion. If for any reason I get interrupted or interfered with I will end the shoot IMMEDIATELY...
Most models I have worked with have not needed or come with an escort. You can ask anyone in my top friends if you need a reference. When my shoots are in a studio NOBODY is allowed in the studio except the model, myself, and anyone from my staff including MUA’s & Hair Stylists unless previously approved. Studio Lights and Equipment are expensive to replace. I cannot work and watch someone else at the same time.
TFP Status - Ask...
If you would like to shoot TFP see my "I Want To Shoot This My Way"...That is all I am shooting TFP. I have reasonable low rates for all other shooting or retouching...message me. You can always ask for something else but please do not be upset or offended if I say NO...
If you would like to work with me, please let me know. All I want to do is meet creative people and work with those who are passionate about their work and who want to make beautiful images and want push the envelope. If you are passionate and love to shoot and create art then hit me up cause I know we can create it...everything else can just FADE TO BLACK...until then lets keep making it HOT!!!
