My end goal is focused more on capturing something that I'd like to see, than slipping into the routine of "bread and butter" shots. I'm more interested in expressing myself, and with the creation of art, than with the possibility of avoiding Kraft Dinner. (Heck, I rather enjoy Kraft Dinner..)
I've been doing more commercial work lately (which is eating up some of my available time), but am still available to collaborate on personal projects, and the like. If you've got ideas of your own, bug me, and we can probably work something out. Commissions are always welcomed, as cash is good..
To that extent, most of the personal projects are figure-based, fetish-based, require a weird location or props, or are just outright weird, and I may or may not have figured out how to accomplish them.
Needless to say, if you're a weirdo that's comfortable with your body, with an artistic bent, we can probably find some common ground, and come up with some darn good shots.. If you're not the sort of person who is comfortable shooting nude, regardless of our shoot content, we probably aren't a good match.
On Payment: I don't mind paying for models for personal projects, but the amounts will not equal the equivalent commercial rate. Sorry. Think I'm paying it, not a client. Personal projects bring more praise than money, so if that's a problem for you, we're probably also not a good fit.
Current Shoot Wish-List (aka, things I haven't shot, would like to shoot, would like to flesh out, or need more of):
Vintage lingerie - Got granny panties and want to show 'em off?
Masks! This is a new theme that I'm exploring, so while there is probably exposed boob and bum, you would be masked, and depending on body tattoos, reasonably anonymous. Or not. Still fleshing out ideas on this one.
Cheesy love hotel shoot - Can be combined with either of the above (I'm thinking at least the mask theme for part of it, but vintage lingerie would rock too). Optimally this would entail multiple models at the same time, but if you're not comfortable shooting with other models, solo-sessions could/can be accommodated. Obviously, hotels want coin, so shooting efficiency is of the essence.
Nude and Tattooed.. (Pretty self explanatory - can be combined with other shoots, but can be a shoot unto itself..)
Looking for models specializing in dance (flexibility, and grace), fetish (wardrobe and attitude), figure models (especially oiled ebony skinned - the light is awesome), and/or anyone else who brings neat ideas or skills to a shoot..
Industrial (pipes, machines, open spaces)
Pool (underwater shots - not till next summer)
Stage (with or without poles..
Super-cool theme love hotels..
etc.. Got a cool location? Let me know!
