Let’s face it. We both have hopes, dreams and we’re proud of our talents. And we likely share in a goal of trying to make a few dollars at this. But if that’s our primary focus in a universe of creative possibilities, it’s a stressful, negotiating, shoot-to-shoot hassle.
I don’t know about you…but I love the feelings I have when I see a finished image that’s even better than I’d hoped, and I’m proud of the time and the process it took to create it. So fees and rates be damned!
You have entered a NO FEE ZONE
But I do workshops through my meetup.com group. Join to be a part (and get paid as a featured model?) http://www.meetup.com/Finest-People-Pho … ops-in-VA/
I’m in this for visual expressions that stand out among the rest, and I share those great feelings with each of you with whom I work/play/create. If you’re with me on this, then don’t quote me rates and I won’t quote you mine. This is a “no fees” island in a sea of photographers and models. Let the rest argue about time and dimes while we take a few hours to enjoy the process AND get images we love. You're good, I'm good, and we'd be even better together.
End of story... beginning of partnership.
I DO love my work…..have more photos than I know what to do with…..think that there are beautiful aspects that can be captured in just about everybody…..love the body’s endless physical expressiveness…..have so much experience that I don’t want to count it…..have strong intuition that I follow in every shoot I do…..intend to shoot without concern for money and models, even if there are only a few who stand with me.
I DON’T know it all…..mind working as an energized team…..care if you have experience…..care about public opinion as long as you and I are satisfied…..have hangups about this body part and that because it all has beauty/value if you know how to express/shoot it…..like to be around judgmental/controlling people but I love them in their own way anyway…..want to walk away from this business out of frustration about money.
So let’s shoot. Message me if I’ve tagged you. Contact me if you’ve found me and my work. We’ll find time among the studio rentals here, if at all possible. Time restrictions will cause me to be a little selective. Don’t take it personally. My art is best when it’s not rushed.
PS – You’ll get to see all your images online in a password-protected gallery within 48 hours after your shoot. You’ll get to choose a ratio of 2 favorite images for editing for every set that we shoot (usually 4 sets or more). The edits will be done and given to you ASAP, usually all finished within 3-4 weeks max. I’ll also give you any edits that I do on my own, as I do them.
And it’s all free.
THE RESIDENTIAL STUDIOS PICTURED HERE (BELOW) IN MY 4BR HOME, ARE PUBLICLY RENTABLE @ $25/hour for lowest level or $40/hour for all levels. INCLUDES USE OF STUDIO STROBES. Message me for details on terms and an equipment list.[/b]
Here's some of the feedback I’ve gotten from the 300+ shoots that I’ve done in the last few years. Consider it. But don’t stop there. Check with any models/clients with whom I’ve worked to see if I’m legit and worth it. I trust you’ll find that I am.
“Kean is always so fun and professional in a shoot. I was relaxed the whole time plus the shots turned out great too!”
“Doug isn’t satisfied with shooting the same old stuff. He dug into his props and clothing collections and came up with concepts I would’ve never thought of.”
“I could have made some $$ shooting with a bunch of pretty crappy photographers. But I decided to trust Kean to collaborate on creative shots that I didn’t have in my port. I’m very glad I did. With his shots in my port, I’m getting better offers from other photographers now. Thank you for saving me some hassles!”
“You’re crazy funny and all your chatter (feedback? Lol) helped me relax and enjoy myself the whole time.”
“Truly professional. Pays attention to details, including my comfort level. Fair and quick delivery of my gallery and edits. One of the best experiences I’ve ever had. Thanks!”
“I showed up at your place when I was very new and totally nervous. I wasn’t sure I wanted to shoot anything but completely covered up in sweaters and stuff. I think it’s funny as hell that YOU had to be the one to tell ME to save some ideas for next time, after I was having such a good time shooting naked in your fabrics and messing with your chains. Haha.”
I’ve had tons of shoots, including a bunch with you. It amazes me how we’re able to come up with fresh funky new concepts after all this time. Shooting with you is addictive! Lol”
