My name is John. When models first meet me, they are usually surprised by my age. I'm still below 30
. However, don't let that fool you, I've been in the photo industry since I was a little boy. I started working in my fathers professional photo lab developing and printing professional photos when I was 10 years old. I know that "Cyan" and "Magenta" are not countries, and anything with a sunset you add +4 density.
I've learned many things about photography from my father, and he's given me the confidence to learn new ideas and try my own creative concepts. I also enjoy forensic photography and spend a great deal of time taking landscapes, and night photography. I'm generally an open book, so if you have any questions, just ask! I hope you like my work.
I will do selective TF*, but my philosophy is to never give away raw images. Even if you have an editing master as a friend, I won't be giving out raw files. I want my end product to represent what I am capable of producing (not what someone else can produce). You can expect, a fully edited image or two from each concept or outfit that we try.
I have little tolerance for those who do not show up on time, or cancel last min. I put a lot of effort in advance planning and it's just not nice to leave me alone with my camera
. I place great importance on the attitude you bring with you. If you're fun, we'll have a blast making some great art! If you're pissy, you're not going to get far in this industry. Some of the most successful models I've worked with are successful because they are FUN people.
I'm always open to ideas, but if you want to work with me... please look at my LISTS otherwise have an idea in mind.
I encourage ALL models to get references or randomly contact people on a photographers profile BEFORE working with them. A lot of weirdos, creeps, etc... out there making a bad name for us nice guys.
DUDES, I have limited use for you (Sorry). Unless we are working on something commercial related, I generally shoot ladies for portfolio work.
I sincerely hope you like my work.
