To answer your pressing question up front: YES! I am indeed willing to shoot models TFP if you are willing to participate in my current projects
. What is my current project? Infrared photography--particularly, in-studio infrared work that emulates the dramatic look of classic 1940s Hollywood photography, looks ranging from nudes to formal dress. If that appeals to you, then message me and we'll work something out.
Be aware that photography is my insanely talented wife's full-time job, so that limits studio availability and paid bookings will always take priority. We don't pay models unless filling a job for a commercial client.
I am a part time second shooter for my wife (http://www.modelmayhem.com/lisaonlocation
) who operates Lisa On Location photography in New Braunfels. My day job is in San Marcos, so I'm effectively available for sessions anywhere between Austin and San Antonio. My background is in journalism, and I've studied fine art photography at Texas State University. What models can expect of me:
I conduct myself professionally at all times. This means I'm not out to date you. I'm happily married with three children, so I don't need the added drama. I'll discuss ideas for the shoot with you, and treat the shoot as a collaboration between equal partners. I will do my best to make our shoot a fun, enjoyable experience for everyone and provide you with quality, finished images within a reasonable amount of time following the shoot.What I expect of models:
Communicate your ideas with me. If you don't have any, make some up. Be prepared to have a good time. Leave the "model pout" at home. ABSOLUTELY NO HAND BRA!
Seriously, if you don't want your nipples visible, we can come up with something more creative than the profoundly un-sexy hand bra. And last but not least, don't flake. Just... don't. This has happened far too often of late. My time is valuable and so is yours, so let's respect each other and make some art!
Feel free to friend me on Facebook
