I'm interested in working with interesting models of all ages (men, women, & couples) who have a sense of character and can express themselves emotionally.
My business specializes in Artistic Portraits and Artistic Boudoir/Nudes.
Artistic Portraits: I offer clients an alternative to the straight representative kind of portrait which most people I think can take on their own nowadays. My portraits are interpretive and may utilize soft focus, spot lights, long exposures, black & white, textures, reflections, creative compositions, and other methods to achieve an artistic rendering. At the same time I don't veer to far off the path of reality because I want the portrait to be grounded and people to still look like themselves. I like to work with models in this genre to experiment, try out different ideas, and to provide examples for my clients.
Artistic Boudoir/Nude: Boudoir photography has become quite popular and there is an increasing demand from women for this kind of photography. In my first few boudoir sessions I practiced the style of other boudoir photographers and disliked the results (the standard style is too obvious and when one tries too hard to make a woman look sexy they achieve the opposite result). I decided I would offer women clients a different approach and put more emphasis on beauty and mystery, creating quiet atmospheric images with a romantic sensuality . I would really like to work with more models to develop this style and be able to show clients more examples.
I usually hire a MUA for each session. I always begin by taking some nice clean head shots for each model as models really appreciate having them and then we concentrate on the more artistic photographs. Most of my sessions are in my photo studio in downtown Woodland but I do like to go on location, especially to scenic spots. (I have the equipment for underwater photography so that is a possibility too.) Sessions can range from a minimum of 2 hours to all day. I provide each model with a DVD of color corrected large size digital images from the session. It is my intention to give each model a valuable exchange for their time and talent; however I realize that some wonderful models already have a zillion great photos of themselves and would rather have cash than photos and that is fine too ... just let me know what you prefer and if you prefer cash then please let me know your requested hourly rate . Each model does need to sign a standard model release which I can email to you ahead of time if you like. Friends and escorts are always welcome and I have WiFi in the studio for guests. If you are new to modeling and in the process of learning and building your portfolio I am sure you will feel comfortable working with me as I have a lot of experience working with non-models and know how to give clear directions and positive feedback. Of course I treat all models as professionals. Let me know if you are interested in my Artistic Portrait series, Artistic Boudoir/Nude series, or both.
