About Me

GWLFPS = Gary W. Lee Freelance Photography Studio [Updated March 6, 2015]
Happy New Year and thank you for taking the time to look through my portfolio.

WARNING:
If you are a GWC (Guy With Camera), I will call you out whenever I talk with models.  I will literally do everything I can to make sure you do not take advantage of any model!!!  I will never speak ill of another photographer UNLESS they are unethical and do not put the model's safety, comfort and well being ahead of their own.  This is not a threat, it is a PROMISE!!!

I am a photographer in the Northern Virginia area who is available to assist any model in creating or expanding their portfolio.  So if you are looking for someone to help you expand your portfolio, 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. 

As I noted above, I am glad and eager to assist anyone with their portfolio, but it will have to be as "Time For" i.e. TFCD (Time for CD).  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 and 2015 Photographer's Market book.

VERY IMPORTANT CHANGE TO OPERATIONS:
In an effort to control costs for 2015 (I blew my budget for 2014) 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 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.

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.  Also, due to my other job, 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.

UPDATE:
I will be down in the Ft. Bragg/Fayetteville, NC area due to my other job for an undetermined amount of time during 2015, so I am going to capitalize by seeking models to work with, so I'm seeking anyone who may be interested in working with me.  Plus looking at making more trips down there cause a friend is stationed at Camp Lejeune and will be working with her often this year.

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.
● 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.
