I believe a successful shoot should involve mutual collaboration between all involved and the comfort and well being of the model is always the top priority.
With me, you will never have to deal with drama, insults, bad attitudes, tremendous egos, jealousy, manipulative behavior, etc. I can assure you that you will leave my studio (or whatever location that we use) knowing that you had a good experience!
Chaperons are welcome, and I have no objection to providing references. In fact, you can do a reference with anyone that I’ve ever worked with!
My rates are extremely reasonable, and I’ll spend a ridiculous amount of time and effort to provide you with images that will you can be proud of. I’m not opposed to travel if expenses are covered.
I am available for select TFCD projects on rare occasion. Got an idea? Message me, and maybe we can collaborate!
My studio is located on a 100 acre farm in Rome, GA. I have access to fields, barns full of hay, forests, old trucks, creeks, tractors, etc. In addition to the previously mentioned inanimate objects, we have 4 miniature donkeys, 4 pet goats, a pot bellied pig, a few chickens, and a Boxer and Boston Terrier that just love to meet new people! All of our animals are rescues and extremely friendly. I find that visitors frequently want to come back (and bring the kids) just to visit all of the farm residents! I'm sometimes asked about studio/location rental.
My studio is available on a rental basis for other photographers. Rates are reasonable and vary depending on the project (usually $40 an hour, minimum 2 hours), and I am available for mentoring and providing guidance on studio lighting, etc. There is restroom/shower facilities, large mirrored make up area, office area with dual monitor computer setup, TV (Dish Network), and sound system (bring your iPod or CD’s)! The refrigerator is always stocked with water, Diet Coke, and YooHoos!
Atlanta and Chattanooga are listed as locations because I sometimes shoot in these cities, and I am conveniently located an equal distance between the two.

I do have my rules, and my peculiar little quirks (such as refusing to shoot on railroad tracks or at Berry College), but shoots are laid back, fun, and free of stress!
"Chris Ozment is an excellent photographer. Chris was extremely easy to work with during our photo shoot which is apparent in the pictures we shot. My pictures came out amazing and were totally different from anything I had in my portfolio. Chris is not afraid to be different in order to create amazing photos. I have referred him to a number of my friends and I will definitely shot with Chris again." Shantea Johnson, Bikini Fitness Competitor and Fitnes Model
"Chris Ozment is an amazing photographer, if you could not already tell by looking at his work. I have worked with him just once, but loved the whole experience.He’s laid back and professional at the same time. His personality creates an environment where not only do you feel comfortable but you feel inspired to get creative and have fun. I would definitely recommend any model to seek out Chris, as he will definitely add diversity and great work to their portfolio.With that being said, I can’t wait to work with Chris again and see what amazing images we can produce!" Randi Hall, Model and Photographer at Randi Hall Photogrpahy
"My daughter did a shoot with Chris Ozment Photography and it was such an awesome experience. From riding on the Gator to find the perfect spot ...going through creeks and fields...to the cows, goats, donkeys and pig...made the day fun and not work for her!!!! Of course Charlie and Trixie can't be left out! The photo shoot came out amazing and spending the day on the farm was just the icing on the cake!!!!" Michele H, manager (and Mother) of Morgan H.
"Chris Ozment makes you look good. No not good, great. If you are already a model, aspiring model, or inexperienced like me, you should work with Chris. He does amazing work with lighting and the flow of posing is all your own. It makes things so much easier when you do have have someone critiquing every chin movement or tilt of the head. Chris is a true photographer you can be comfortable working with." Susan Dunacn
"I've known Chris for years and he is, by far, the most fun photographer I've ever worked with! I've trusted Chris to take my family's Five Generation photos and I always turn to him for my professional photos that I use to build my modeling and acting portfolio. While Chris has an excellent location for both indoor and outdoor shoots, he is always willing to go on location if requested. His prices for the shoots and editing are the best that I've ever seen and his turnaround time is phenomenal. I always recommend Chris Ozment Photography any time I'm asked who I use." Stephanie Stewart, Model and Actress.
"This is one photographer that I would recommend to everyone! Chris is a very professional photographer that makes you feel right at home, whether it be in his studio or on the farm. He is also great with new models. Going to your first shoot(s) can be a bit hectic. Nerves everywhere but he really makes you feel comfortable with what your doing and you will receive the quality images that you desire. No doubt about it. He also allows you to let out your own creativity and a total blast to shoot with. I've shot with him twice and I intend to set up even more photo shoots in the future!" Kendra Rene, Model.
