Previously MM# 482586, I had to change my profile after selling BBR Studio Services.
I have over 25 years of photography experience and about 6 years in digital. I began my career in 1983, my junior year in high school as a yearbook photographer and continued through graduation in 1984. I do all types of genre work from Childrens portraits and child modeling portfolios to Playboy, Hustler style work. I have published work in several nationwide publications. I do gallery work, Model portfolio work, weddings, funerals and parties. I have no genre limitations and maintain a no pressure outlook. I am the only authorized photographer for the American Association for Naturist Recreation (www.aanfr.com
) And do regular promo shoots for companies such as STIHL, NAPA AUTO PARTS, CRAFSTMAN, EDELBROCK and more. Models are never pressured to do more that they are comfortable with or have specifically asked to not have done. Except for an occasional individual shot, I do not show much of my work "afterphotoshoppe" because all it does is show the skill of altering photos-not the photo itself or the ability of the photographer. Most photos shown are completely raw. I do photoshop and edit, but that can be see upon request. I prefer to show MY actual work, not an altered version of it.
I do TF work once in a while, but rarely for select models if I feel there is sufficient benefit for me OR financial need of the model, but most shoots, appointments and events are compensation oriented. I DO NOT PAY MODELS UNLESS I am being compensated by another source to do the shoot. I do regularily submit shoot sets to magazine and publication editors and share any revenues from those submissions with the models if they sign a release for me to submit.
I do work with models of all ages, but strictly follow US federal codes when working with minors. If you are a minor looking for boudoir or nude-Please bear in mind-PARENT OR GUARDIAN interview must be scheduled prior to shoot.
I AM DOING TF NOW ONLY 1 TIME PER MONTH: For newbies or those needing tf work, I am scheduling 1 weekend per month for TF shoots. I can include several models in one shoot which will include makeup done my one of my staff MUA's. I do have policies, restrictions and requirements for any TF work. I will discuss that with anyone interested.
I have no problem with anyone contacting models I have worked with here on MM for references.

READ THIS CAREFULLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Please be reminded again. I do not need you to increase my portfolio. I have over 20,000 pics I can chooose from. so TF is not an option unless I have good reason for doing it. Usually it is done out of financial need of newbie models who I feel have great potential and need a photog that can get thim a variety that is good for professional portfolios. If you want to do TF, you MUST comply with my needs as well. I generally have no use for basic stuff, if I do TF, there MUST be nude or semi nude sets added to the basicss, OR you must be able to acommodate something that I already have a client wainting for me to produce for them. ALL shoots require a release regardless if its TF or not. I do provide a confidentiality statement to all my clients and your photos IF you hire me, I do not sell or redistribute images.
IF YOU ARE A PHOTOGRAPHER AND ARE LOOKING TO WORK WITH ANY OF THE MODELS I HAVE LISTED HERE, I WILL GLADLY GIVE THEM A REFERENCE AND LET YOU KNOW WHAT TO LOOK FORWARD TO IN A SHOOT.
SUGGESTIONS: IF YOU NEED COFFINS AND THEME RELATED PROPS,SNAKES OR OTHER STUFF LIKE THAT, I CAN ARRANGE THAT AS WELL.

MODELS I HAVE WORKED WITH HERE FROM MODEL MAYHEM
Had to remove some of the images of the Model Mayhem members I have worked with due to someone feeling that photos should not be posted on a profile page. As soon as I can find the legal loophole as to how so many other MMers are doing it for years unmoderated and mine were noticed, I will reaproach my profile layout. Till then its all text per the gatekeepers.
