I am an Art & Creative Director|Photographer. My specialty is shooting fashion. I strive for a unique and creative look in all my shots. I am currently available to travel.
ATTENTION: I am not currently shooting due to heavy workload.
Thank you for your patience.
Note to Models: I don't shoot Maxim/FHM/Playboy style models. If you have this look then I have no interest in shooting with you.
Due to some past issues I have had to become more stringent in my requirements. I no longer do TFP or TFCD. This is due to cost and time involved. If I do a FREE shoot with you then I will make the final selection of images and edit them. They will then be posted online for you to download and use for your online portfolio. Additional prints for your book can be purchased separately. I do not put a timeframe on when they will be uploaded. It depends on how busy I am with paying work. It will typically take between 2 and 4 weeks to get your finished photos. I will keep the model informed of the progress. However, no photos leave my hands without being edited in some way. Also, I do not allow models to make further edits to the photos. This is stated in my model release form but it is also protected by U.S. Copyright law.
What to expect from me First, I am professional. I will not disrespect you. I don't have a big ego like some photographers. I like to keep it fun. I usually have some kind of direction for the shoot. But I am flexible because things can change. A shoot can last from 2 hours to 6 hours depending on availability, weather conditions and how well the shoot is going.
What I expect from the model I require a standard model release form be signed PRIOR to the shoot. I ask that the model be able to offer a variety of poses and facial expressions. I ask that you not wash your hair the night before or day of the shoot (easier to style). Please don't wear any make-up to the shoot. If possible have a manicure and pedicure prior to the shoot. If you can't afford it then please clean them yourself. Tweeze your eyebrows. Don't use any new beauty products the day before or day of the shoot.
