Paranormal Energies Photos

I love creating with like-minded people as “pure productive fun” to get great results that are usable/ marketable and satisfying to all of us.

My images look pretty good to me after years of photography, 7 of them with models. It’s very rare for me to pay anyone to co-create . MM work is only trade (TF) time. My images have value in themselves and I’m sure yours do too.

BUT…
Through my meetup.com photo group, I run PAID workshops of all kinds for models/photographers. Check the link above. Join it if you want to be one of those models. Experience helps but it’s definitely not required!

Travel notice:
Somerset, PA - Thurs/Fri April 30 + May 1

I'll be on the road in Somerset for a change of scenery to complete my Oracle Energy Cards Project. While I'm there, I'm willing to do 2 shoots (at the most) with models who'll shoot for at least one of my projects (See the "named" image galleries here on my MM). I'd like to make the most of time and shoot a concept or 2 on your list of to-do's also. Message me if you're interested. Unfortunately, I have to choose only 1 or 2 because of the time constraints of my "card project" purpose there


I’m always looking for new stuff to make a difference somewhere, somehow. I cycle through projects. You’ll see them in my casting calls and in my named galleries. At the top of the pile right now is creating my own Angels and Oracles Energy card deck, to be published by summer. So getting your name and best work out there, is possible through me. I’ll credit you everywhere, if it’s OK with you.

I often shoot images with (OMG!) nudity in them. To me, it’s the ultimate in self-acceptance to have great photos of yourself with nothing much to hide the insecurities. But the Gemini creator in me has me always shooting a variety of sets with everyone. Headshots to lots of expressive stuff. It’s best for our diverse marketing purposes and fun to create them as a team. Ask anyone who’s tagged in my port images. In sum, nudity is not required, but thoughtfully suggested.

I’m not scary. But I do talk and coach a lot. Been compared to Austin Powers more than once.  hmm

I shoot less often and with better quality, these days. I’m satisfied to make my few bucks in studio rentals, workshops and with non-MM clients. Also…because I see the usual way of doing business as inefficient and as more “work and worry” than it needs to be, please look for new forms of photoshoots here and through my meetup group. I hate routine and there’s always a better way. I'm starting up 2 by 2’s, for example. 2 photographers working with 2 models in the same place. Here, most often. Double the results in the same amount of time and ½ the travel as normal!

Try me. You’ll like me.
Guaranteed, or your double your money back. wink

FEEDBACK
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”
