Welcome to my profile.
First a quick bit about me. I've been shooting for just over nine years with a focus on people and portraits. My inspiration tends to stem from classic Hollywood (thus the love for B&W), retro pin-up (Elvgren style), or comics (must do more CosPlay shoots). That is why, with my rope shoots, I try to add a look and feel that touches on these themes in effort to make these images more than just a pretty girl tied up.
I'm very much an "in the camera" shooter. The most editing/retouching I do is simple clean up. My job is to make you look good... while still looking like you. Recently, I've started toying with FX and composite images. Been doing pretty well too, but I have much yet to learn.
None of these images are for sale. This is all just an artful experiment. The work in this series is strictly for portfolio purposes. The end goal being to make something interesting that we can both be proud of.
Photography is my hobby, but I take the business side very seriously. If we schedule a shoot,
I will be on time. If I say I will have photos to you by a certain date (usually within four weeks of our shoot), you will have them by said date. If life gets in my way, I will advise you of the delay and how it will effect my deadline.
I am a TFDigital shooter. I don't have the funds to pay models (usually) and I enjoy this too much to accept money in return. I edit a few images from each set/look we shoot. The final tally usually ends up in the 20+ area for a three hour shoot.
Three things to know about working with me:
1) Models get final say in all wardrobe choices. I may make suggestions on items or outfits, but you're the one who'll be wearing it. You know what will and won't work.
2) We're here to have fun. I keep the shoot moving, but like to keep things light. You need to enjoy what you're doing and feel at ease in order to get the best images possible.
3) You may bring a friend/escort with you. They don't bother me at all. All I ask is that they be someone you're comfortable modeling in front of (you'd be surprised how often models have overlooked that).
If you've read this far I thank you for you patience. I look forward to shooting with you some day.
