Hola! My name is Grant. I prefer weird concepts, and I love working with models who are enthusiastic, fun and personable. I have an affinity for dark monochromes and filmy aesthetics. I'm super chill, jovial, respectful and easy to work with, and I make every effort to create a comfortable working environment for everyone involved in any of my shoots. I always put clients'/models' comfort and safety above everything else. I TALK A LOT before, during and after shoots. That's all the warning you get.
This is me:
I love making props and building sets, so I encourage you to bring outrageous ideas to me. I also encourage models to contact any of the other ladies I've worked with to check my references, or ask me for some and I'll refer you to some ladies who will put in a good word. I am comfortable shooting nude looks and any such concepts we shoot will be catered to your comfort level and preferably discussed fully in advance. I don't like awkward moments and I'm very candid. I'm very hands-off, and I avoid touching models and I won't get up in your space unless you specifically request my help or if I get your permission first.
I travel! All around the southeast, up the east coast, etc. I would even like to make a trip down to Florida in the spring. If you're looking for a photographer anywhere in the area, hit me up and let's talk.
PAYMENT: As much as I'd love to pay models to work with me, I absolutely can't afford to, and I won't. Let's not kid ourselves here. I don't make any significant amount of money from charging models on Model Mayhem. I'm here to network and make art. That being said, I choose my own projects, and only with skilled, experienced models. If your look or ideas intrigue me, we can probably work something out. If you're an inexperienced model or I'm too busy to take on your concept, you can still pay me to work with you and I'll give 100% of my creative energy to our project.
ESCORTS: I prefer 'em! Feel free to bring someone along for the shoot. But please, no moms or dads, and no boyfriends, spouses or other romantically involved individuals unless we discuss it in advance. Just mention it to me beforehand so that I can confirm with you that it won't be awkward. For female models, female escorts are preferred, but not necessary.
MODEL RELEASES: I require 'em! You must sign a release giving me print, publication and sales rights if you want to shoot with me. It's standard policy for any professional photographer, it protects me from weird rights issues, and I have to have it in order to submit our shots to mags. If you need to know more, feel free to send me a message. No malicious intent.
Message me for questions and if you want to shoot, let me know and we'll try to work something out!
SHOOTS AND THEMES I'M INTERESTED IN RIGHT NOW:
Dark, grainy, filmy, monochrome looks.
****Video**** Nothing too weird, fully clothed, just want to shoot some music video style content for practice. Trade only.
