I'm a digital photographer who loves taking photos of people. I especially like taking candid photos because you catch that person as they truly are. There is no pretension, just being.
What I am looking for:
I am currently doing TF* work only. Feel free to look thru my portfolio and if you want to work together, don't just leave a tag or picture comment. Send a message that tells me what you're interested in shooting and what your days and hours of availability normally are.
I am currently working out of a home studio in Palatine, Illinois. Unfortunately, a lot of people get "weirded out" when someone says the word "home studio". Therefore, I always suggest that a model bring along someone to the shoot. It can be a boyfriend, girlfriend, or even a cousin. Also, if you still have reservations about this, feel free to contact a model that I've shot.
About the Shoot:
The shoot will typically last for about 4 hours. After the shoot, I feed my models minestrone soup, oil and vinegar salad, and steak. I'm half Italian, so I guess it's an "Italian thing". We were brought up that when you cook for someone, you're putting in effort which show's your appreciation for that person's time. If the weather is nice, the steak is barbecued if not it's broiled.
After the Shoot:
After the shoot, I will do both editing and post processing. Going thru 700+ pics takes time, so please be patient. The pics will be posted on a temporary website once they have been edited. You'll go thru the pics on the temporary website and you'll let me know which ones I can post on my website www.midnite-models.com
---don't let the name throw you, I'm just branding myself with the "midnite". I will then send you the edited photos thru a service called "Yousendit", which allows you to download the pics to your mac/pc.

If you're going to be in an upcoming Fashion Show, let me know and I'll take some pics. What I ask, is that you would let the event coordinator for the Fashion Show know that I'll attending the event and taking pictures.
