I am a professional glamour photographer in the North of Boston, MA area (Wilmington). I also shoot pinup, erotic and fine art content.
I am cutting way back on TFCD, but if I offer, I now ask for a deposit:
Like most MM photographers, I have had problems with models disappearing in the days leading up to a booked shoot, and even ones who confirm the night before just not showing up, some without even texting or calling. I just can't afford to waste this much time. Unless I have worked with you previously, I will require a $25 deposit (via Paypal) to book a date, which will be refunded to you at the shoot. I'm sorry to have to do this, but money seems to be the only thing that commands respect. I am willing to be reasonable with those who make a good faith effort to keep their appointment, give me as much notice as the situation allows, and want to reschedule. In lieu of the deposit, I will also accept references from three other MM photographers that will vouch for your reliability.
I now return you to our regularly scheduled profile already in progress...

I have lots of experience in many types of photography, and I've really enjoyed working with models. MM has been a great tool for connecting me with some wonderful models who have helped me create what I think is some creative art. Take a look and see if you agree. If you have suggestions on how I can improve my results, I'm all ears; really, constructive suggestions are always welcome.
I especially enjoy working with new models, and I'm always looking for models who will give me the opportunity to show what I am capable of and just how beautiful they can be.
I do fine art, and erotic nudes, intimate portraits, silhouettes, and body painting, but I also like doing pinups, glamour, and especially beach shoots and waterfall shoots (at my secret locations). I like to try experimental shots with unique lighting like IR/UV, lasers and flashlights, as well as 3D(stereo) photography. I'm also looking to branch out into video, so if that interests you, let's give it a shot.
One of my focal points right now is to get published. I feel the quality of my work is good enough and all I need is the right models.
If you think you've got what it takes, ask me about doing a MAXIM or Playboy submission!
Pinup Fans! Lets submit to Pinup Magazines!
I've been told by many rookie models that I'm really patient and easy to work with. One common phrase you'll hear from any model I've worked with is: "We had so much fun!". Fun is the primary ingredient in every one of my shoots, whether it's on a beach, or in the studio. I think it's obvious when you look at my portfolio. From the choice of pinup themes, and music, to little perks and treats during shoots, we produce some great results by simply having fun!
With all this talk about fun, I want to be clear that I'm very professional and take every shoot seriously. I create a written session plan of what we'll do in fine detail for every shoot, so we can use the time efficiently.
I will not waste your time. Please do not waste mine!
Since I have full time day job, currently my schedule is as follows:
Mon-Thur evenings 7-10PM.
I am also available on weekends from November thru April but unfortunately not during the summer months.
Just like everyone else, my rates are very reasonable and also negotiable. Really, they are!
I've been doing portfolio work in exchange for nudes and/or body painting, but I'm getting pretty fussy about who I offer that to. Paying work needs to come first. Studio space and equipment cost real money!
If you would like to have me to do some portfolio development, portraits, or any other type of photography, just send me a message with a description of the work you need. I can come to your home with portable lighting, or, one of my secret locations.
Suicide Girls and CosplayPinupGirls:
Because SG and CPG require that the photographer re-assign his copyright to them and gives him no credit whatsoever, I do all SG/CPG sets at a flat rate of $200 per set. No TF* on SG sets since there is nothing in it for me.
ATTENION PHOTOGRAPHERS: I have a great, comfortable studio in Wilmington, MA and I'm looking for photographers to share it with me either as members, or via hourly rentals.
Whistle Stop Studios
I Pay Models:
1) For my workshops, 2) When I am being paid by a client. My first choice for models to hire for pay, is the list of models who have done TFCD shoots with me in the past. I know they'll show up and I know what they're like to work with. So, if you hope to get paid by me in the future, you should consider working with me TF* at our first opportunity. I do make occasional exceptions for exceptional traveling models.
I'm more than capable of doing high quality retouching and compositing of your photos. I deliver fully retouched shots from every shoot. I never send out unretouched photos(unless that's what you need for an agency). I'm adamant about holding the quality of my work to the highest standards. I also offer retouching services for other photographers.
I feel that communication is incredibly important. Please keep up your end of the conversation!
I can be contacted at: G a r y(at)G G P s t u d i o s.c o m
and of course here on MM. I respond very quickly to either.
