** LOOKING FOR DIGITAL COMPOSITER/RETOUCHER **
I am working on changing my commercial style of shooting and need a digital artist to work with on a perpetual basis. US Based artists only. Must be able to work with me on rates on all media (editorial, advertising, personal/portfolio) Please email me direct: michael (at) stylegio dot com - THANKS!
PLEASE do not friend request me to hint me onto your "services" because you're gonna be in my town.
FYI - I don't need them.
I am all about creating images with texture and mood....that make you want to touch and to be there in the image. Images that are visually arresting, serene, romantic, and sensual are very much my ethos. I am very passionate in what I do.

Many of you need a good basic headshot, a blank canvas helps! I am an honest, loyal, down to earth individual. I am always looking for a muse (male - well toned and/or female - waif) right now with a very strong look who wants pix...and LOTS OF IT not to mention being a director I shoot motion as well! I am a creature of old habit...therefore I like relationships. Long term working relationships with my crew and my clients. If we do business, I give my contact information, I expect the same in return. This is how business is done, let's be professional about this.
I TEST frequently (Money is never exchanged - ever! I buy food for the crew and models). Also not into those that bring escorts. I have PLENTY of professional references. First and foremost you must be comfortable with your body and with me. If you are afraid that your privates might show around me or on camera...move on. I am a professional I have one goal and that is to get the shot and execute my vision and my story. Your privates are irrelevant to me unless they are a part of the vision and the story line.

Make No Excuses
Excuses for failure, excuses about your choices in life, excuses about what you feel you have accomplished fuel dysfunctional thinking – and consequently, undesirable actions and behaviors. Making excuses instead of taking one hundred percent responsibility for your actions, your thoughts, and your goals is the hallmark of people who fail to succeed.
Part of the power of taking responsibility for your actions is that you silence the negative, unhelpful voice in your head. When you spend your thinking time on success and goal accomplishment, instead of on making excuses, you free up the emotional space formerly inhabited by negativity.
The next time you catch yourself making an excuse, whether for the late project, the unmet goal, or the job you work, gently remind yourself - no excuses.
Spend your thought time planning your next successful venture. Positive thinking becomes a helpful habit. Excuses fuel failure.
