Photographic services available: model portfolio, music (live concerts and studio), video, also building websites and hosting. Currently doing TFP with select models. I DO PAY Models, but I'm always interested in PAID work too.
I started shooting weddings and portraits with film. Now I shoot mostly with digital, but film is still an option. Video is also something I work with. Commercial with a journalistic style. You are welcome to bring other people like a MUA or an assistant to shoots, but please let me know in advance.
Background: advanced photography, theater arts, and music. Experience: working for magazines, and newspapers, shooting in studio or on location. Owner of Internet Model Club, Backstage411 and WebbiesTV. Will travel.
If you are not on the West Coast, please understand if I limit the "friends" to those closer in location to me. However, I do make exceptions from time to time. Hopefully soon, I will be traveling to a place near you!
Reach for the sky!
My stance on TFP/CD, Film vs. Digital, Escorts, and Flakes!
I pay models, they pay me, and we do TFP ... not all at the same time but for different projects of course. I shoot film, and I shoot digital, but if there were a hybrid camera that I "could afford," then I'd be doing both with the same camera. I don't use the word "escort" but "invited guests" don't bother me. Models who flake or are late don't seem to find me. Communication is key!
What about camera brands, photographers trying to have sex with models and complainers?
Camera brands don't matter much to me, even so I've used many different ones. I don't try to have "sex with models" and I treat people the way I like to be treated ... with respect. Many people I work with tell me that they like the fact that I'm not a complainer. But if someone whines and complains while they are riding in my car, I know to pull over and let them find their own ride.
Attitude and life in general ...
There is no reason to fight over TFP, escorts, and camera brands. Make up, lighting, and clothing are all creative choices we can make. So many people dream of what it would be like to be in our shoes as photographers, models, make up artists, or stylist and the like. They don't get to see all the drama that is created by others who just can't seem to find happiness.
How difficult is it to be open minded? How hard is it to be accommodating? No one can be all things, but one can find happiness in this industry. If there is such a badge of honor, for me it would be that I'm happy doing what I love.
May you find your dreams come true!
Keep a positive attitude!
