hello fellow artists,
what an awesome place for our special "breed" to come together and network...very cool! my goal on here is to build some new relationships with people who are as passionate about what they do as i am. i do some killer hair and i'd like to hook up with other artists ( a great photographer in particular ) who enjoys the co-creative process of birthing some really cool images and knows how to show off my work by using their unique eye for shape, texture, form and light. i'm open to all types of photography but know what i like immediately when i see it. i've worked with a lot of people who just don't know how to shoot hair and after working really hard to create something that's one of a kind i'm tired of being dissapointed when i see that the model looked much better in person than she did in end result image. i'm totally open to your ideas especially if i feel like we're on the same creative page and although i need some "hair" shots for my book Iid still like to do other stuff where the hair is not necessarily the main focus but rather one of the elements that make the shot unforgettable. i'm already very established in my industry and often get requests by various publications for my work ... some are for pay and some are for publication and some are for the benefit of everyone getting images or tears ( no pay ). i don't always shoot for the money but the things i shoot for free always get me future work ( and also sometimes the team i work with ) so I'm a firm believer of "doing what you love and the money will follow". the only thing that won't work for me is working with someone who has a "holier than thou" attitude and isn't open to creating as a team with all the other the other people involved. there's enough of that in this town and i'm so over it! just because someone is amazing at what they do doesn't warrant disrespectful and rude behavior. i figure if you can relate to what i'm saying and even somewhat agree with me we're already on the right track to creating something that fulfills us both at the end of the day!
