HI! Thanks for taking the time to check me out.
MODELS PLEASE READ:
CREEPINESS Factor of ZERO!!!! Every model I've ever worked with will tell you that working with me was fun, relaxed, professional and among the best experiences they've ever had as a model. I know that almost all of you have a GWC horror story or have dealt with a professional who didn't know how to keep it professional or didn't follow through with getting you what you were promised. I'm not him.
In return for that I request that you behave like a professional also. I'll ask you to communicate promptly and to be honest about what is going on with your schedule. Our time together is valuable and I'd hate to waste it.
PLEASE!!! If we've never worked together and you'd like to be "Friends" send me a TAG or a Message to say "hello" rather than just a blind request. I seldom bite and believe "hi" is the best way to begin any relationship.
Models - Do the images in your portfolio look like the images here? If not then why aren't we working together? If your intention is to be a serious professional (full time or part time) then you need the tools of a serious professional and your portfolio is one of the most important. Check out the Models in my A+ Models Lists. These women come in all sizes, shapes, ages and colors but the one thing they all have in common are solid professional portfolios. Are the images in your portfolio up to that standard? Why not? There are plenty of talented Photographers on Model Mayhem. Check out my A+ Photographers List. Are the images in your portfolio up to that standard? Why not? Your portfolio images are an investment in your future as a professional. The pictures that your boyfriend or your sister or some guy with a camera took are not. The women on my lists are making a living as models. How many assignments at 2 or 3 or $400 a day would you need to work to make back your investment in quality portfolio images? What's the value of being the girl put on a plane to somewhere great instead of being the girl passed over? How many assignments are you going to get with a portfolio full of snapshots?
It is my goal to capture not only physical beauty in my photography but also that subtle something that makes you unique in all the world. Sexy, playful, elegant, girl-next-door or Glam SuperStar no one else can do it just the way you do. Achieving the perfect image is a complete collaboration between photographer and model requiring trust, open and honest communication and a willingness to give and take. On the issue of trust, I'm a serious professional, not a guy with a camera. There is not a single model that has ever shot with me who would hesitate for a second to work with me again or who would not provide an excellent recommendation. Every model I work with who is listed on MM is given linked photo credit and you are more than welcome to contact any of them. You are also more than welcome to bring a friend or an escort to any shoot.
If you express an interest in working with me expect that I'll want to speak, or if possible meet, in person before we set up a shoot. This serves to benefit us both as we can exchange ideas regarding the shoot and also begin to build a comfort level with each other that will show through in the quality of the final images
My rates are extremely reasonable and can be tailored to meet your needs. I offer special rates to MM models of $150 for a 1 hour + session (I don't watch the clock) with at least 5 fully edited images. My "real world" rates are significantly higher. You can come to me, I can come to you or we can meet anywhere in the world you'd like to have images created. All the images you receive from me will be fully edited to show you at your very best.
Regarding TF*: My available time is VERY limited. On the other hand it never hurts to ask. Maybe I woke up in a great mood or all the planets are aligned. I love to help new people get started, I truly do, but please understand that unless one of your images is going to make it into my portfolio you are asking me to work for free. Also please be flexible, I'm a full time professional photographer and I can't give up thousands of dollars in fees and sales to do a TF* shoot, I need to work them in when I don't have paying work scheduled. Thanks for understanding.
If you got this far thanks for taking the time to read it.
