Mayhem # 65271
I am a long time photographer in the Sacramento area. I specialize in doing model portfolio work, studio, outdoor, and sports photography. I also conduct photography related workshops on camera basics, lighting, model posing, and image retouching (www.SacPhotoWorkshops.com) and have and instructional DVD on Studio Lighting (www.PhotographyDVDs.com). I am always looking for models and/or MUA in the greater Sacramento area that need quality pictures for their portfolios.
If you work with me you can expect someone that over communicates. I am a professional and insist on workig only with people that are professional as well.
I like to have fun but this is not a game to me. I do a number of different types and styles of photography additionally I do a number of workshops through out the year. If you are interested in being a model for one of my upcoming workshops send me a message through the site.
I only accept "friend" requests from people I know or have worked with. If you are looking for a reference prior to working with me feel free to contact anyone on my friend list.
As I mentioned above I am an over communicator to the point of being a pest. When we have a shoot scheduled I will check in with you at least a week prior and then 2 days prior as well. Understand that often times when I am doing a workshop I may only cast one model since most of my workshops are designed for smaller groups for more one-on-one instruction. In these cases a no show by model is catastrophic. To avoid this I try to have good contact with my model up until the shoot. I also require a cell number and email address from all of my models prior to confirming them. So far this process has served me well except on a few occasions in the last 2 years. Below is the list of my Model Mayhem Flakes:
Courtney M Cross (MM#2600914) - No show for a paid workshop, no call, email or text message.
Chloe_J (MM#123352) - No show for a paid workshop, no call, email or text message.
Please do not agree to work with me and then end up on this list. Life happens but when you make a commitment and then have to break it be professional enough to at least communicate the fact rather then just no show and never communicate again.
My advice is if you are casting for models think twice before using anyone on my list.
On the other hand if you need a model you can trust and rely on checkout anyone in my top 12.
