Hi! I've shot some fashion work in the past, which you can see in my portfolio. But any delusion that I'm going to one day be an international fashion photographer is long gone. I am a wedding and portrait photographer, in Ventura, Santa Barbara and Los Angeles. It's what I do for a living, and I love it.
So why am I on MM? Two reasons:
1) Even though I don't have plans to become a fashion photographer, I still like to shoot the occasional TFP. It keeps my skills sharp and gives me something a little different to put into my blog. So if you're looking for really awesome work, I'm not going to charge you. But you should be 5'7" or taller, dress size 0-4. Drop me a line and we can talk.
2) I also like to shoot bridal/wedding 'inspirational' shoots (i.e. Staged and styled photo sessions). If you happen to be recently married, and want to shoot in your wedding dress, let me know. I also sometimes have access to dresses.
RE MM "friends": I very often decline friend requests that are completely irrelevant. If you're a model in Latvia with no plans to come to California, there's no need to send me a friend request. If you're local and there's a chance we might work together some day, then by all means, send a request!
And please note that I don't assume you want to collaborate just because you send a friend request. If you want to work together, then please actually contact me!
