Vardoulika Digital Design & J. Chunglo Photography is joint venture
that provides the highest quality, most eye catching and, intense
imagery all in one convenient package. Instead of having to find a
separate photographer, retouch artist, and creative artist. You have
all of the above grouped in one photographer.
Many models have had the horror of looking at a photographers portfolio
and seeing amazing imagery only to find out they dont edit their own
photos and there is an extra cost on top if they want the photos edited.
That is the difference here at J.Chunglo Photography and Vardoulika Digital
Design is that what you see is what you get! An all inclusive service for
a very reasonable price.
1. show up.
2. do something.
I cannot reiterate how important the first step is. This is the foundation of your reputation and will make or break you as a model. Once you have that down, then you can work on doing something in front of the camera. Just standing there is a good start. Keep moving! We need to see signs of life in the images!
*play with your wardrobe
*pucker your lips
*put your hands on your hips and push your shoulders forward
*chew your nails, play with your hair
*have a staring contest with the camera
Be sure to practice!
I am willing to do limited TFP/TFCD work under the following guidelines and is completely up to my own desecration...
~You are listed in my "Models I want to work with" list.
~You fit the roll for a project Im wanting to do.*
~By working together will have a direct result in networking to paid gigs.
**Important Note on Trade**
For those writing in hope for a trade shoot let me explain. I shoot professionally. My income is derived from my photo work. If you're hoping for trade then you have to bring something to the table I feel will be of benefit to my portfolio. Published work and tear sheets. An exceptional portfolio and body of work. I have my own specific preferences I look for in models. If you don’t meet my personal taste or have a strong portfolio. Payment for my time may help but if I just have little interest period. Then I will pass altogether. Still, seeing pictures and portfolios is important. Emails and messages without are usually ignored.
So...the infamous subject of rates has arrived!(DUN DUN DUN)

Fine Print stuff:
*Deposit is non-refundable and due at time of booking to secure date and time, please understand that part of my livelihood is derived from the income I make from doing shoots. I do not have time nor the patience for people that are not serious. Now this does not mean we can not reschedule in the event of an emergency though. I understand that things happen and sometimes you may need to reschedule. A minimum of at least two weeks notice (14 days) must be given to reschedule. If you cancel on our date with any less than the aforementioned notice then the deposit and date will be subject to forfeit.
These are my published rates; since all photo shoots are unique the rates will vary upon requests such as for travel, props, specific makeup/hair, and wardrobe. To capture the best possible look I highly recommended having a professional makeup artist with skills for photography makeup, there’s a difference in photo shoot makeup from everyday or even “club” makeup. I have a number of highly qualified, reliable and very talented, makeup artist with whom I work and which will enable us to capture the best look. Basic beauty makeup is included with a number of the shoots. The makeup can be enhanced for a more personal look or dramatic effect for a small price depending on the artist available of requested. This package is for models in studio or on location all details will be discussed and agreed upon prior to our photo shoot.
A little about myself... Well this is always a tough question to answer really. My name is Jonathan Chunglo, I am also known under the pen name of Vardoulika (Vahr-dool-ick-ah).
How I got started? Well I originally started doing Digital Art Design about 15 or 16 years ago. I just wanted to do the album artwork for the past bands I was in so that we could have professional looking packaging on a DIY budget. After doing this for awhile one day I started editing photos for some of the models that I adored and admired that were in the alternative/goth/fetish modeling scene. This in turn developed into a desire to do the full production start to finish and become a photographer. And here we are today, it has been quite the journey and I have loved every second of it and cant wait to keep refining and developing and perfecting my craft as a Photographer and an Artist.
Thank you to everyone that stops by and takes a look around, your opinion and your critique are greatly appreciated and not taken for granted.
