*if you send me a friend request please send me a comment or tag beforehand, I like friends but random strangers=stranger danger *
I do work in photography, videography, editing, producing, directing, post production, etc etc. I have experience in moving images as well as still. Thankfully the tricks of the trade tend to transfer between the mediums.
I wouldn't say that I have a specific style that I use in all of my images, although I do have an open mind to different techniques and ideas. I am usually not closed minded towards any creative ideas and welcome feedback on current and past works. I do all of my own retouching and sometimes retouch for others, if you are nice to me
I hope to meet some like minded creative people with open minds to create awesomes.
Who ever said that work can't be fun? NOT ME!!!
Here are some Frequently asked questions.
Q: Do you shoot TFP/TFCD? (Aka, free)
A: On a select basis If you have a project you would like to work on, I may be interested in TF* work. But you must also be willing to work on a project for me. TF* will only be considered if you are willing to help me with my projects
Q: Do you pay models?
A:YES/NO I will not pay models to help them build their portfolios. You need images you pay for them. However, If I have a project that I have been commissioned to do and models are needed, YES, you will get paid, and paid well. ....just ask if you have questions! I respond quickly
THIS IS MORE OF A GENERAL MESSAGE.......
If you contact me about shooting, please give me your contact info, this includes email and a # that I can reach you at. The phone # is key as I have had bad experiences trying to schedule and confirm a shooting date strictly through MM.
I am a professional and expect to be treated with the same amount of respect that I will show you. If you want to shoot with me, please give me at least 24-48 hours advance notice and confirmation that you will be there! I spend a lot of time putting together a set and getting my gear set up, and a lot of hours on the computer doing processing and retouching after the shoot! I always show utmost respect to those that I work with. Please be considerate of my time as I will be considerate of yours.
My rates are very reasonable and I am willing to adjust rates depending on the shoot and the subject. Just ask.
Please send me a message if you are interested in working with me.
