I have a few pics here for u all to see, but I am looking to gain more and do as many creative shoots as I can ~ I think with the right photographer and the right ideas, we can make magic!
I have a direction in which I want to take my portfolio, and it includes everything from clean, polished, natural shots to edgy creative shots. I want the clean headshots for paid gigs such as essence, or neutrogina, and I would like edgy shots for the sake of agencies, runways shows and editorials.
What I love is that beautiful crazy stuff....Not edgy, OVER THE EDGE type of photography.....Are you up for the challenge? (P.S I really dont mean nudity, because I feel as though you can be beautiful and alluring without being totally naked)!
What I run into are photographers that are very conventional with little vision. While conventional is no problem for me, because I am looking to become diverse, I would really like to work with someone with a creative eye. That way we can come together and create art that is outstanding. So if you are a "guy with a camera" you can still contact me, but at least sit and think of your theme and the angle you want to take your portfolio. But if you are a "Photographer with a vision, please dont hesitate to give me a buzz!
I have learned from experience to implement the following rules when it comes to TFP or TFCD shoots:
1. I will almost always bring an escort to all shoots. I will decide wheather an escort is or isnt needed, but most of the time, especially in one on one situations, one will be present.
It has been brought to my attention that this is a sensitive area for both models and photographers. Models bring escorts for the feeling of security and comfort, while photographers feel as though escorts may hinder their shot. Well here is the deal, if I decide an escort is needed, he/she will remain separate from the shoot, so they will not be in the way. That is the compromise I feel is best.
2. I require the CD if it is a TFCD shoot directly after the shoot. This is to avoid any misunderstanding as to the time frame of the distribution of the CD. Emailing the images to me is fine, but a CD is certainly required.
If this is absoultely not possible for you do to time contraints then the time frame is something we can negotiate.
This is not to cause stress to the photographer, but I know they dont need me contacting them every other week asking when the CD will be completed and distributed. This prohibits that from having to take place.
Dont worry, for all that is stated above in return I ALWAYS bring my A game, complete focus and 100% dedication. I am always on time, and follow directions fully. I am constantly working on my flexibilty and facial expressions in order to provide the best shots I possibly can.
If you would like to shoot or have any ideas please email me here in the site, I am dying to hear from you!!
Let me know what you think...
