PORTFOLIO OVERHAUL....message me if you are interested....
***Not offering TCFD unless there is a casting posted. THANKS!****
I have a good sense of humor...so dont take what I say personal.....HA....
I have a question.....where are these hideous wigs coming from?....if it looks like a wig..its not a good wig. If if looks like a rat but feels like a cat.....its a wig...and a bad wig at that. I just see so many bad wigs on MM....goodness.
Nudity is not a requirement to work with me!
I am a female photographer but.....
**Important News Break**
OH...and Im officially tired of seeing this one fredricks of hollywood lingerie piece...I have seen it on about 100 MM Models in all of the colors they offer. I know it was only $20 and it looks good on everyone(well some)... but save it for your man..wear something else. Wear it with the aforementioned hideous wigs to role play for your man....but please dont wear that lingerie or that beauty supply store wig to a shoot.
LITTLE ABOUT ME
a straight shooter
I like to have fun when shooting...I cant use some of the pictures of some of my models because they are lauging so hard from me and my assistant cracking jokes and being ourselves. Sometimes they forget that they are taking pictures and they have to get back into character. We love people that laugh easily and enjoy life.
I have always loved photography since high school. I love to take pics of people more than anything. I have a photojournalistic style of shooting.
I have learned over the course of shooting that I do my best sessions in natural light. I dont really like the tripod. I like to shoot freely. I am a "get in your face" kind of photographer. I get close and personal. I have been told that my best pictures are candid. SO if you are looking for this kind of photographer...that is me.
I will do some TFCD sessions at my discretion to expand my portfolio. This means...if I dont put up a casting call for a model..I am not looking for a TCFD with a model. You will receive up to 20 raw photos on a CD from your shoot. If you have a good idea for a shoot then send me a message. I dont want to sound mean but please dont contact me for TFCD beause you think you are pretty, sexy or cute and deserve pictures. I am acutally more open to doing TCFD for events or new designers. I only give all of the pictures to events that I do or models that paid for the shoots.
***MY LATEST RANT***
I am a tad peeved about some of the casting calls for photographers....there are inexperienced models that want experienced photographers for a TF situation....How would an experienced photographer benefit from that??? Be honest...u dont have money or you are too cheap to pay for pics...and you want some want some nice pics....and some of you want to shoot in a studio!! Studios are expensive to run. Its like having another apartment. There is nothing wrong with wanting nice pictures. But dont be afraid to invest in yourself and your modeling career. I do TFCD quite a bit because I love photography. Understand that photographers spend alot of time taking pictures and editing...we made an investment in ourselves. We have to buy the camera....and a crap load of accessories and equipment...editing programs..the whole nine. INVEST IN YOUR CAREER...because in the end...you will only be cheating yourself.
Please do not bring escorts to your shoot unless you are under 18. If you are under 18 years of age you will need to bring an escort that is over the age of 21. You both be required to sign a release form. If you are over 18 please do not bring an escort. If they are not part of the shoot, they do not need to be there. If they are not a makeup artist, wardrobe or hair stylist they do not need to be present. I have an assistant if I need one. If you are uncomfortable meeting me for the first time feel free to give my information and location to family/friends before we shoot.
I can always get money back...but I cant get time back. I usually book sessions a week or so in advance. IF there is any reason that you can't make it to a session please give me a 48 hour notice of cancellation. There is a chance that I can put someone else in your spot and reschedule you at the same time.
PLEASE BE ON TIME......especially if this is a TF shoot..I cant stress this enough. The clock starts ticking at your scheduled time whether you are there or not. If you are scheduled for 2 hours you are expected to pay for two hours no execeptions...unless u get hit by a trolley riding your bike to the shoot and dislocated your shoulder when u were thrown into a building....then I may excuse you...
I dont have time for egos. So when you come shoot with me...leave your ego and your hand bra at home.
SO...other than that have a great day!
