Working out of beautiful Victoria, B.C. and the surrounding areas, specializing in, but not limited to Glamour and Fashion for model portfolios and print. Fine-art, commercial, portraiture, head-shots,fitness, swimsuit and casual are all areas I have worked in.
I like to show a wide variety of styles in my portfolio and I have found that this appeals to many different types of models from artistic to swimsuit to fashion,as well as making the work more interesting.
Please have a look through and don't assume I only shoot one style,nothing could farther from the truth once you look !
Photo retouching also available. Feel free to inquire about rates. I have no problem working within a person's budget.
NOTE TO RETOUCHERS ON MM:Stop spamming me,Please.I have no interest in paying someone else to do my finishing work ! If I want to add digital art,I am hooked up in my own town for anything that is beyond me.
*[b]Just like in any business, you have to spend money to make money.
Modeling is no different in that you have to invest in your portfolio to get the results that set you apart.I have personally seen girls who put in the work it takes to look great and be fit and healthy do well in modeling and make $$.
Shooting with as many amateur photographers as you can find for TF does NOT make that happen,it's the work you put in on yourself that will give you a chance in this hugely competitive world by standing out from the pack,not blending in by looking the same.
TF considered only for girls who are fitness,health and beauty focused in general.
*Being a lover of natural light and an outdoors kind of person, I have created large amounts of natural scenery based images, both for models and landscape/scenery for print.
**For those looks that simply cannot be achieved by reliance on natural light, I have a studio flash system, firing up to eight flash heads at once, allowing us to sculpt with the light and add the accents of color and shadow-play that make for totally unique images.
***I often work with an assistant to maximize our efficiency in the studio or on location.
****VERY easy to communicate with and appreciate the same in return.
Random notes: I have studied art for years and am an accomplished gemstone cutter and carver and do silver and goldsmithing as well when I have the time, which there never is enough of.
I love art and have been called an artist for a long time but I don't believe I have to bore you with all the "deep" thoughts about what art is or mine is about, I leave that to the BS artists!
B+W photography and its soulfulness is something I admire and enjoy working with but I also love to try to capture the realism of color .
Here's a link to an interview I had the pleasure of doing with my good friend and accomplished model Aviva (she also writes for the model edu Library here), you can get a better understanding of my views on photography here,plus,some interesting interviews she did with celebrities and great articles!
