About Me

http://www.simonsoncreative.com/Dave_Helicopter_sm.jpg

LOVE WHAT YOU DO.  Well, this is pretty-much my mantra in this life and how I weight my priorities.  It's not about the money... but the money is always nice.

KEEP IT REAL.  My desire is to use available light, the location and the model's natural beauty without excessive post-production work.  However, I do make proper use of Photoshop as I feel necessary.  Please do not solicit me for retouching services.  I do ALL my work, from "shutter-click to completion".

I CAN ALWAYS IMPROVE.  My camera reminds me of this every day!  I never think of myself as truly accomplished.  If I am lucky, maybe it will happen one day.  For now, I just do the best I can and push myself to do better.

COLOR IS MY OBSESSION.  Color is the best part of life.  I see, play, love and live in color.  My obsession with color reflects my heart and soul.  The artist John Ruskin said it best... "The purest and most thoughtful minds are those which love color the most."

GET OUT AND SHOOT.  The surprise opportunities and inspirations, often encountered with an outdoor shoot, make it a wonderfully creative working environment.  There is always extra time invested to scout for locations, but it's also worth the effort!  What I love most about shooting outdoors, are the challenges, elements and chaos you never have to deal with in the controlled environment of an indoor studio.

I Y'AM WHAT I Y'AM.  Just like the character Popeye would say!  Well, what you see in my portfolio is exactly what I shoot.  No hidden agendas and no f'd up fantasies or fetishes.  I truly hate head games and drama.   I keep it professional and courteous, and although I "y'am" opinionated and stubborn, you will also discover I have a kind, generous, honest and fair nature.  I love collaborating so please never be afraid to offer your ideas!  On location, you can count on me being quite clear with advice and straight-forward direction.

EXCHANGING IMAGE COMMENTS.  The english language has so many wonderful and expressive words.  I always try to craft words carefully to describe what I like about someone's portfolio or image.  So, if you want to leave me a comment, which I deeply appreciate, please try to do the same for me.  But if you can only find the time to leave a grunt or an oink, well... I will always understand.

RANDOM FRIEND REQUESTS.  Comment on an image, leave a TAG, or simply say hello.  Random friend requests are just senseless acts of drive-by narcissistic networking-foolishness!

If you made it this far... Wow... Thanks for actually reading!

MODEL MODEL ESCORT POLICY. I never shoot without meeting any model ahead of time (typically 2-3 days minimum before the actual shoot date).  A pre-shoot meeting is mandatory for a positive, planned, safe, creative and professional photo-shoot!  You are encouraged to bring as many escorts as you like to our pre-shoot meeting. 

If after we meet in person and I have provided you with my credentials, and you still require an escort to be present on the day of the shoot, I simply require your escort to be able to present their original birth certificate, social security card, drivers license and voter's registration card on the day of our shoot.
