I am based in the Charlotte NC area however I have a place on Lake Norman as well as Boone NC where I prefer to shoot as often as possible. I have over 30 years of paid expierence in photography and another 10 years prior of study in photography and graphic design.
If you are all wanting just a photo of yourself in a bikinis or swimsuits I may not be your man, I prefer to place my clients in a real location to suit their desired look. If you want to look good and stand out from other photos you see on this site, I may have the answer! If you notice most of the photographers on this site live on the T&A philosophy….. get real. I create a mood with my photography! My goal is make the model and myself stand out from the crowd, outside the box. Anyone can operate and point a camera, however I would rather photograph a beautiful model in a real setting and create a statement rather than “hey look me“. I have been paid to do this since my college days and this is an art that has become a passion to be great at.
The best part of my abilities is that in addition to my education in photography I also have an education in graphic design which involved photoshop techniques and editing. I am a one stop shop. Which means, a photo does not leave my sites until it is 100% edited to compliment both the model and myself.. and the bar is raised pretty high.
As for TFP: unlike most of these self proclaimed photographers I am always interested in helping a model succeed in this business. If the trade is created and photographed in the right manner it is a win win for both parties. I do not shoot nudes so you don’t have to worry about that. I believe the model, her look and the perspective will only force the imagaination of the veiwer to bring the photo to life.
Bring it! What ever you have, what ever your best asset is, what ever your concept is…. bring it and we will make it stand out from others.
All my clients are real, edited for flaws and any type of blemish but not manipulated to alter shape. I promise the experience will be rewarding and we both will walk away from a shoot with a product that will not only make a statement but will promote your cause.
Note: All the digital files photographed by MVO remain private and confidential to the client and the photographer. We do share the files however I prefer for the client to have a say as to what files become viewed on the internet.
Look forward to working with you.
