SOME REPRESENTATIVE FEEDBACK
Here is 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”
LIKELY NEW PROJECT = Hauntingly Beautiful series (calendar? magazine?) - For those of you models who have stories/interest in the unseen energies ("paranormal"). It'll likely include a video that includes a brief interview. btw - I've seen this done NOWHERE. That's a big part of the appeal.
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.
Thanks for checking out my profile. Examine it thoroughly. I believe I’m different from most and here’s why:
My earlier career was in personal counseling… a Masters degree plus a Bachelors in Psychology. I know how to converse/connect with my clients on a deeper level, inviting trust and getting us honest, expressive photos. Can you see that in my images?
I’m very experienced in everything from weddings to headshotz to boudoir. I’ve been told that I make shoots fun and energetic. Far from being the silent, shutter-clicking photographer, I’m more of a talkative film director. With words and tone, I do all I can to have you FEEL the mood of the set and not simply POSE like it. Plenty of positive feedback.
Lastly, I admire the inspiring work of others, but I don’t copy it. I’ve tried to establish a recognizable style of my own and I’m getting closer. But the only visible threads so far, are ones of quality and variety. Yes, I’ve got themes and projects, but even those have individualism.
Anyone can ask about TF. But really, with studio rentals by others, my shoots are more limited now, and trades (TF) are reserved for those with whom I sense the “best energy”. I’m very intuitive and I trust it. My rates are very reasonable and they can be found here: http://www.shotzcreatives.com/photosess … nt-options
Quite a few of my images are glamour/figure/art nudes because this is what’s most commonly asked of me to create. Implieds or nudes are a usual part of any TF work that I do. But a closer look will show you that my photo art extends into many distinctive non-nude styles. Paid clients of mine will get my full focus and attention for any types of shotz that they want.
Please note…If I contact your through PM or a tag, I’m asking/suggesting that we work creatively together on a TF basis.
Escorts are welcome. But if you thoroughly check references like I suggest, it's not a necessity, by far.
Unfortunately, my 6 year history here shows that 80-90% of clients who cancel for any reason, real or fictitious, cancel a 2nd time when we've rescheduled. I can't afford to give up a 2nd 3-5 hour timeslot and possible other income. So I'm requiring that same $40 deposit of models that I require of rentals, to reschedule. If the 2nd shoot happens, you get it all back. If not, you don't. I wish that I didn't find this to be necessary. But show up the first time, and this new policy doesn't apply at all! Simple as that.
