I am a soul finder! Through my images, my focus is to capture the essence of one's inner being. This being is often held captive within due to societies perceptions and judgements. I have photographed various beings labeled as models and others, but no one recognizes that the two are one in the same. It all begins within...Imagine your soul...
Select Creative(I select you) TFP/TFCD (Edited pics only) I will not release CDs of the entire shoot, unedited photos, or unwatermarked proofs (This is not common practice with most reputable pros). I will not provide CDs or files the day of the
shoot. I will retouch 6-8 images of your choice that will be emailed to you for the web and prints for your portfolio can be mailed.
Also, I'm a casting director, director of photography, creative director and retoucher.
I am principally interested in paid work, but will sometimes test with exceptional models, make-up artist and stylists. If you want to work with me drop me a line and we can discuss!
-I do not pay models unless a client is paying me.
-I am always on time and expect the same courtesy!
-I need a way to get in touch with you (i.e. cell phone number.)
- We must meet in person before the shoot but at very minimum we should have a phone conversation first.
-It is a team effort. I am always open to ideas, criticism and input from each team member involved.
-I will treat you respectfully and with courtesy. I expect the same.
-Don't forget to make it timeless!!!
+++++I love edgy, creative images...if you want basic for TF...it's not with me. I'm not a photoshop wiz, so all of my images are taken in the locations that you see them. So, be prepared to go on a journey if necessary! lol++++++
****My images are copywritten use of them without my permission will result in legal actions taken!!!!****
