PHOTOGRAPHY blends my appreciation of beauty with my drive to create. Photography for me is more than simply capturing beautiful images. It is about unveiling a hidden connection, exposing a special talent, or portraying a subject from a unique perspective with the ultimate aim of creating images that possess a SOUL.
Whether you want to express yourself artistically, add edgy spin to your port or just simply want gorgeous photos, contact me. I am open to working on TFCD terms if you have an unusual talent, possess cool wardrobe, or are able offer an amazing shoot location.
ATTENTION: I am currently looking for models to collaborate on the following themes:
- Gymnastics, Yoga, Fitness, and Pole Dancing for my 2016 Ballet and Dance calendar project
- Gothic Glamour in the moonlight or in the rain
- Bodypaint - several very unique concepts
- Film noir style pinup
- In a church, spiritual theme

BEHIND THE SCENES: I enjoy the process of creating glamour images. To get best results though takes time and close collaboration with fellow artists. This includes concept definition, selection of wardrobe and makeup, and setting up the studio backgrounds, lighting and props. Often MUA's and hairdressers are part of the actual photo shoot session. Last but not least, after the shoot I spend long hours editing the images, usually with the model present providing her creative input.
The following images offer a glimpse of some recent behind-the-scenes action that give an insight into the process of creating my art.
ABOUT THE SHOOT - If you are considering to shoot with me...
- After our first email exchange, provide your telephone number and best time to reach you. I prefer setting up the shoot over the phone (or texting) to avoid lengthy tag
- Look through my port and my profile lists and tell me if any image/concept in particular catches your fancy
- Be reliable, and have some control over your schedule
- Be prepared to meet over coffee prior to the scheduled shoot. I find a face to face meeting is the best way to start a productive collaboration
RELEASE FORMS - You may be asked to sign one. If you are under 18, your parent or legal guardian must sign and should be present at the shoot.
a. If it is a TFCD shoot, we get a joint right to use the photos. You get 8 or more high resolution Photoshop enhanced images.
b. If you pay me, you have an exclusive right to the photos
ESCORTS Policy - While I discourage you to bring Bodyguards, escorts, or boyfriends, you may bring your mom, girlfriend, MUA, or hair stylist
REFERENCES - You are encouraged to check my references
