MODELS … READ THIS NOW BEFORE CONTACTING ME!
I will invest in very limited TF projects with very select artists - models, MUA, stylists, designers, etc. - if it will benefit my portfolio (and YOURS) or lead to future work. I don't work for free! But I am willing to collaborate on great concepts!
I am willing to work TF photos with like-minded artistic people/talent, who are also willing to invest THEIR time, effort, energy, passion and creativity, cover THEIR own costs as I cover MY costs. I will ONLY work with people that can demonstrate commitment to, and a passion for, creating great images.
If you agree to this creative EXCHANGE of "energy for energy", let's talk. If not, their are plenty of amateur photographers on here that will take amateur photos of you...
I do not pay models, unless I am getting paid. Now that we have that clearly understood, this means when there is a client - magazine, corporation, agency paying me - then the bill for model's fees are paid by the client. NO CLIENT, NO FEES. I do not pay models, unless I am getting paid.
I will provide food, drinks, and necessary expenses for the shoot in a fun, safe, comfortable and professional atmosphere.
For all TF* work, I expect models can do their own professional quality makeup or provide/pay for a professional MUA and hair stylist that has a webiste of their work I can see and agree to work with them.[/b]
*** PLEASE READ THIS now: I do not work with complete strangers! If YOU can not agree for a 30 minute pre-shoot meeting at a Starbucks, or other safe public place you like, then go to another photographer. In the REAL modeling world this meeting is known as a "casting" or photo shoot interview. If you have not done this before me, then you are probably are not working with professional, quality photographers.
I NEED to see if you still look the same as your photos; to see your skin, how it reflects light, so I know the best lighting for your tonality BEFORE day of shoot; I need to make sure our personalities don't clash and all my staff will get along great with you; we need to discuss photo ideas, studio or location shots; we need to get any questions, or decisions, answered BEFORE a shoot, so you, me, stylists, everyone has time to organize and prepare.

05/20/11 - Editor's Choice award on N.A.P.P. - National Association of Photoshop Professionals
04/2008 - My photo of "Hurricane Andrew's" damage was chosen by Europe's elite LeFigaro magazine for their 30th Anniversary issue showing the "Best of 30 Years", one photo chosen for EACH year, from 1978 to 2008. Millions of photos were published in the 30 years, only 40 photos were honored and included in the magazine and the gallery show. Basically, the editors of Le Figaro wanted to choose only ONE photo from each year! But there were some years that they could not decide on just one photo for "photo of the year," and they ended up with 40 photos total.
I am honored that Le Figaro considered my Hurricane Andrew photo as their choice for "Best Photo of 1992". In the whole world...

"Take your cameras EVERYWHERE, except the shower."
"Always KEEP them ready to shoot INSTANTLY."
"The Pulitzer Prize and great images happen in an instant. They do not tell anyone in advance where, or when."
Words from a Photo Editor at Associated Press. They installed habits and work ethics that allow me to make fast decisions and respond instantly.
Fast thinking. Instant responses. From Spot News to Fashionable Nudes. To get YOU images that stop time.
My drive, my cameras, and my love for photography, have taken me to every state in the USA, Europe, the Caribbean and now Asia.
My studio is the world ... I shoot assignments ANYWHERE in the Universe!
If it can be photographed, I can probably shoot it for you! If not, I can tell you who to contact...
Let's talk it over. Shoot me an email or call me:

"Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs even though checkered by failure, than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat."
The creative process is a cocktail of instinct, skill, culture and a highly creative feverishness. It is not like a drug; it is a particular state when everything happens very quickly, a mixture of consciousness and unconsciousness, of fear and pleasure; it is a little like making love, the physical act of love. ~ Francis Bacon
"Don't be afraid your life will end, be afraid that it will never begin." ~ Grace Hansen
"Art is not what you see, it is what you make others see." ~ Degas
Be safe. Play hard. Remember to LAUGH lots, and treat people with honor so they will remember you forever! ~ John Berry
