About Me

[Updated August 8, 2016]


GWLFPS = Gary W. Lee Freelance Photography Studio
Thank you for taking the time to look through my portfolio.


                                                       http://i161.photobucket.com/albums/t240/garywlee/Drama.png

        For those that don't know what a GWC is, it's someone who pretends to be a photographer but could care less
        about creating quality work and is only interested in cheap shots!

I am a photographer in the Northern Virginia area who is available and looking to team up with and partner with any model in creating or expanding not only their portfolio, but mine as well.  So if you are looking for someone to help you expand your portfolio and maybe also be in mine, I would be glad to assist.  Please see my list of credits below for any references you might want to query to check me out.

My email address is gwlfps@comcast.net

Networking with models and other photographers is EXTREMELY BIG for me.  I send Friend Requests to models and photographers that I like their work and would somehow or another like to collaborate with them.  Be it with models who might one day be in my area, or me in theirs, or photographers that I may be able to help connect some of the beautiful talent I had the great fortune to work with and help out both of those parties or vice versa.  It is not a quest to get the most friends, but a quest to build a strong workable network across the industry.

I am originally from the Beaumont, TX area, in South East Texas, but now reside in the Nation's Capitol area (25 miles south of Washington, DC) after retiring from the military.  I love this area and the diverse population, fantastic scenery and outstanding possibilities, but I sure miss Texas just as much if not more!!!

As I noted above, I am glad and eager to assist anyone with their portfolio.  I also do paid shoots as well (where I pay the models), it just depends on what we discuss the results will be used for.  I am currently working to make submissions to various targets in the 2014, 2015 and 2016  Photographer's Market book.

VERY IMPORTANT CHANGE TO OPERATIONS:
In an effort to control costs for 2016 (I totally blew my budget for 2014 and didn't do much better in 2015) I am working out of hotels more and studios less, it's an economics thing.  Now before you get the wrong idea, this is because hotels offer numerous more possibilities to work off of and controls expenses as well, so instead of paying for an hourly space, I can do more work on a daily cost, it's all about the economics: hotel = $80-120/24 hr or  studio = $50+/hr.  Plus, I request that all models bring an escort to alleviate any concerns.  This way the Model and MUA (if one is lined up) can have a full restroom area to do hair/makeup, change, shower, etc.  Work can be done inside a controlled space for heating, cooling and lighting as well as provide access to pool and gym spaces and other areas.  Now that does not mean I will not be obtaining studio space as well, it's just not going to be as much as the hotel.

By saving on the shooting locations, allows me to pay the models more, so I hope all models can understand why I am working like this.  I know a lot of models have problems with working in hotels, and I can understand that, but I'm trying to balance pay and results.  Normally for a 2 hour(ish) shoot, pay will generally range from around $100 to over $500 or more depending on what the theme is, what we shoot, transportation costs, etc.  Let's discuss so we can line up a superb shoot. 

I have no problem whatsoever with escorts just as long as they do not impede the work and/or shoot or they make the model uncomfortable.  And as a matter of fact, I highly encourage it until the model and photographer reach a working relationship that both are comfortable.  But please remember that the escort's job is to allow the model to feel comfortable when working with someone new, they are not there to approve a pose/wardrobe outfit or direct the model.

I always provide credits, and if you are happy with our work (which PLEASE let me know if you are not!), I would appreciate the same.

I can travel roughly to any spot from Baltimore, MD to Richmond, VA, from Winchester, VA to Norfolk, VA for shoots, other spots if planned well enough.  I also plan to start working more down in North Carolina during 2016 and beyond.  Also, due to my other job, I am in Huntsville, AL quite frequently so can shoot down in Alabama maybe two to three times a year. If you are from the Alabama area, please let me know.

The below is what I found on a blog on OMP and is not my creation:

Just thought this may be useful for some folks:
Know Your Lingo
Before you contact any of your connections, photographers, or a modeling agency, it is important to brush up field-related lingo. Just like any other career, agencies and models have a trade language. If you want people to take you seriously, you need to sound serious and knowledgeable. Some terms to know might include:

● TFP/TFCDs: time for print photos or time for CD of images.
● GoSee: The first meeting with a potential client
● Casting Agency: An agency that contracts agents for potential auditions and gigs.
● Tear Sheets: A page from a magazine or publication that you appeared in.
● Cheat: Industry speak for “move.” For example, “Cheat to the right.”
● GWC: This is an acronym for “guy with camera.” This phrase is used to pinpoint men with expensive cameras but who generally have no formal photography training.  Do not pay models and are cheap sleazeballs just looking for thrills.
● Implied Nudity: A type of modeling or shot that suggests nudity but does not show any explicit parts.
● Book: A model’s portfolio.
● Comp Card / Zed Card: This is a models calling card that agencies will use to shop around their models to potential clients.
● Voucher: A slip of paper that is given to a model by their agency and must be brought to the actual shoot. These vouchers are necessary for receipt of payment.
● HWP: This stands for height-weight-proportionate.
