Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to read my profile. My goal is to produce beautiful images and maintain a light and fun atmospher. I'm not big on forcing my ideas on a model. I feel a photoshoot should be a mixing of ideas. Photography is my love and although I don’t shoot full time I take it very serious.
What I shoot: My style of shooting is a motley mix of styles. I like to use crazy angles and creative lighting to highlight my subjects. Anytime I can incorporate vivd colors into a shoot its a good thing.
TF? At this point the TF train has left the station so shoots are going to be very limited. My rates are reasonable and always negotiable. It never hurts to ask. Of your style is something I'm looking for then we can work something out. Sometimes I purchase new equipment and I want to test it or I simply need to update one of my websites and I will offer a TF shoot.
Where I shoot: I’m located in the far western suburbs of Chicago. I shoot in hotels, outdoors, homes, and rental studios. At this time it is not financially feasible to maintain a studio full time. Please don't hold that against me. If you have a great location to use TF may be considered. I link all models that I work with please feel free to check references.
What you can expect: For paid shoots you can expect a CD of all usable images with 5 retouches (print + web size). For TF shoots you get at least 3 retouches emailed to you. I post all images from the shoot in a password protected gallery and the model chooses which images they would like retouched. Additional retouched images can be purchased for a nominal fee. I take great pride in getting images back within 2 weeks of the shoot.
Pet peeves: I have a couple but this is not the place for it!
Each of these models were great to work with. Hit them up for some paid assignments.
