I take photography, your time and my time very seriously. I won't waste yours, so please don't waste mine. My ego comes from someplace else, so I'm pretty easy to work with.
I enjoy creating arts. I'm not looking to "take your picture" for your Myspace. I'm trying to capture photos that are worthy for art galleries/contests consideration
I prefer slender art models (though I'm not set in stone) Someone with dance background and flexible would be ideal.
Since my works involve nudity you the model have to be over 18 years old. Because I want your time and I'll do my best to give you edited images within a week. Sorry, but RAW stays with me and I will need a release signed before we shoot.
Thank you for visiting my profile and viewing my works. Your comments are most appreciated.
OMG, funniest post on MM forum. Just have to share to everyone visiting my profile.

I finally met my match. I head-desked so many times during this conversation, my downstairs neighbor was convinced that I finally got a girlfriend.
The model contacted me through AIM, which was my first red flag, so I proceeded mostly due to morbid curiosity. Anyway, here's where it gets good.
Model: Okay, and since we're going to be shooting in an abandoned factory, I'll be bringing an escort with me, for safety purposes.
Me: Safety purposes? As long as you watch your step, it's safe. Lots of holes in the floor. I only ask people not to bring escorts for very simple reasons: I can't concentrate with people watching me, escorts have robbed me in the past, and I have no liability insurance. Also, there's a hefty amount of trespassing involved in some shoots.
Model: No, I just mean to make sure nothing happens to me lol I don't want to get raped or anything.
Me: Oh...shit, I'm glad you mentioned that actually! I left "Rape the Model" off my to-do list. I forget how well a felony rape charge and prison sentence helps business these days. I can even get free advertising on channel 17 and a little dot on a map of where I live so the neighbors even know about me...
Model: haha no that's not what I ment. I just feel the need to have someone there for my safety? Because i'll be naked.
Me: Well...what did you mean? You pretty explicitly implied that it was my intention to rape you. I've worked with 50+ models and the 11 that I gave you references to all gave me rave reviews, including [website], who I'm a staff photographer for! On top of that, a few dozen model for me on a repeat basis. I think raping all of my models might send up a few red flags.
Model: No, it's just that photographers will want to get touchy-feely with a nude model, you know? if a girls naked, they're going to want to get some.
Me: I've seen girls naked before. I'm not booking models so I can "get some". I'm working with them to create artwork, not illegitimate children. You seem to think that everyone with a camera is a potential rapist. Although, I must say, your ability to blindly insult people and seemingly ignore their response is quite impressive.
Model: okay so then my boyfriend can come?
Me: Absolutely! I can't wait!
Model: okay perfect. when do you want to shoot?
Me: ...Is your browser set to "Disable Sarcasm"?
Model: does october 6th work for you? I can't shoot Fridays now.
Me: Actually, I think my grandmother is going to die. All week.
