Currently I'm a MFA (masters of fine arts) graduate student, focusing on digital photography, video, installation and robotic sculpture (usually a combination of these media).
I'm looking for models that either want creative/unique images to add to their portfolio, or new models, just starting out that want to build a portfolio.
I'll work for $50/hr. (plus travel expenses, if you can't shoot at my art studio in Greensburg, PA or the art school at WVU.)
If you are willing to try some artistic/implied nude* work, I'll definitley shoot with you for free (TFCD). Some of that time will be spent on head-shots and fashion shots, to build up our portfolios.
If I really like your look and/or personality, I MIGHT work TFCD, full nudity NOT required... just ask.
*After reading several MM pages equating nudity to pornography, I feel compelled to say: artistic nudity, at least as I shoot it, is never pornographic. I give models complete control to edit/crop images and always resepct their boundaries. Shoots are always professional, relaxed and collaborative.
I have been an artist all my life, and have taken (nude) figure-drawing classes since age 15. As a result, I have a great deal of respect and admiration for the human form.

Although my primary art medium is not photography by itself, I have been published several times, done album covers, and lots of portfolio work.
My official training is actually in Engineering (BS in CEE), with a minor focus in Physics, and I have a BFA (Fine Arts, focus in traditional sculpture).
