It's been a long while since I did a shoot with someone from MM. Mostly I've just been shooting with friends for awhile now. I also recently bought my first ever digital camera, and I've been strictly film photography for over a decade. Everything you see in my portfolio is film, and those are not "instagram" shots, but actual Polaroids. If I *really* like working with someone I might want to shoot B&W film or Polaroids, but due to the expense and the intense work that goes into those mediums I'm not offering those services for free.
Artistically, I'm a whole heck of a lot more interested in the 19th century than modernism or pomo. I like romance, symbolism, fog, mystery, mythology, and natural beauty. I come to photography from the perspective of being a painter fore-most so my photographs end up being tinted by my painting background. I'm not particularly interested in funky hair dye, tatoos, or piercings... they aren't "disqualifiers" and I'm not really conservative, I just would rather have the flexibility of a blank canvas. I'm also not interested in fake boobs, injected lips, or extreme body-builder physiques... I prefer the natural model... imperfections and all.
My approach to photography is about dialog and collaboration. I'm not comfortable with bossing people around and prefer instead for there to be conversation and ideas. This is all because I want to create images that are genuinely about you just as much as me. In this vein I would really encourage anyone who wants to work with me to take some time thinking about their "fantasy" shoot... something they've always wanted to try but for whatever reason just haven't done yet. We can even have craft time to make costumes and props if you want! I'm trying to get some private locations squared-away where I can do elaborate shoots... if you have access to an awesome private outdoors spot or a kickass building, let me know! I'm also attempting to build up a catalog of nude, semi-nude, or romantic images to turn into paintings.
