My name is Christopher Lee Garcia
First and foremost, I am an artist. I was born in Kansas, traveled abroad and fine tuned my skills on the east coast. If you are a like minded free thinker, let's collaborate. If you itch to know more about who I am or what I do beyond my portfolio
, just ask. If you want to commission me for a unique piece or illustration, shoot me a message. If you’re interested in procuring my photo skills, then read on my friend.
I freelance for Pretty Magazine (fashion/art) and I am also doing my own side art concepts. I am building a database of models willing to do TFP (for now) to be published or to be part of my art installments. I am in constant need of models to do artsy and cutting edge projects. But as I am newly relocated to Kansas, I am also looking to connect with and expand upon my network of models, hair technicians, make-up specialists and other freethinking artists. Obviously, I'm also hunting for new clients and commission work. I am not solidified to Kansas as I can and do travel frequently. This includes Virginia and DC
at least once a year. So if you're an east coaster, we should plan.
If you have not worked with me before then you are more than welcome to bring an escort as long as they will not step on my toes, ruin your flow and are cool with helping out if we need them to. Always bring more than one outfit and your own make-up/base just in case.
Time For Prints (TFP)
I need models willing to do TFP (for now) for the magazine I work for, Pretty. TFP is at my discretion so you really need to be able to offer something special, own or have access to a unique wardrobe/location or have one a jaw dropping idea we can join forces on. That being said, it can't hurt to ask
and as I mentioned above, I am looking for go-to people for projects and modeling.
(These are just a few... I have a long list of ideas)
-Male with a wedding style tux
-Male with full combat attire, gear and weapons
-Male or female that's extremely
-Male or female that's extremely
-Male or female with white suit/tux and top hat and possibly cane
-Female with long hair willing to cut her hair really
-Female with a wedding dress (dress will get a bit dirty)
-Female with bright leg warmers, crazy colored heels and 80's attire
-Female for full body paint shoot (final product will not nude but implied)
Photography Session: Prices and Guidelines
•Sick of perverts who are only interested in getting as many girls naked as possible?
•Tired of seeing sub par work from supposed Photoshop masters?
•Burned out on random halfwits and hacks calling themselves photographers just because the bought an expensive camera?
Well that makes two of us.
Art is my profession and I take it seriously. Far too often I see amazing models with a portfolio diluted with subpar work. I don't sell myself short and neither should you.
$150 (2 hour photo session)
$50 (each additional hour)
You receive: Image CD with a minimum of 10 retouched photos (low resolution)
This buys you up to a total of two hours worth of shooting time. So however many outfits and locations you can squeeze into that time frame is up to you, including travel and prepping. Each additional hour is fifty dollars extra. This is just the standard that I usually go by so you can have a rough estimate of where we stand right up front, thus prices may vary on assignment. You will get a low resolution image CD containing at least ten of the best photos. Professional grade prints can be purchased through me additionally. I never give out all of the images that I shoot as I only edit and release top quality work.
If you've read this far I'm guessing you've decided that you want to hire me to be you're photographer. Now what? Think about as many details about the project that you can to make this go as smoothly as possible for us all. Please don’t be shy. I’m a professional so spill your guts. Tell me what you would like to achieve and what you don’t. I never judge, I’m very open minded and I’m up for anything.
Ideas to think about:
-Where: In studio or on location?
-Attire: Do you have it, can you borrow it or should we rent it?
-Hair/Make-up: Will you do this yourself or should I contact a pro for you to go through?
-Type: What genre or theme are we aiming for? Senior portraits, modeling portfolio, business use, family photos, etc.
-What: Do you want traditional photos or are we doing something crazy? Got idea references or examples?
