Most likely my last year shooting fashion/glamour, moving on to landscape/nature. While I transition, I will still take on TF shoots - but will be more selective and all the terms will be agreed to in advance. I have NEVER charged a model to do a shoot.
I'm an older gentleman, with decades of experience, interested in attaining the best images possible. I enjoy working with models who contribute the shoot in terms of concept and contribution. Escorts are always welcome. Amateurs give images on CDs, so don't ask for RAW images because you too are a photographer. I do have a home studio, but prefer to shoot outdoors, in various locations...
I treat each model (regardless of experience) as a professional, until they prove otherwise. If you ask me to reserve a date for you, I assume you are serious about shooting. After reserving a date, I don't bug/stalk models. I make contact a day or two before a shoot. That's it. After a shoot, I deliver, as promised.
Owning a camera doesn't make one a photographer, much like owning a hammer doesn't make one a carpenter. The difference between a guy or gal with camera (GWC) and a photographer: artistic eye, skill, focus and professionalism. Buying a Nikon or Canon, makes you a Nikon or Canon owner, not a photographer.
The best advice I can give any beginner model is to work with as many photographers as possible as we all see you differently and have different styles. That will give your portfolio variety and show versatility. Like photography, modeling is a skill and a skill requires practice to become good at something. We can dress you up, put makeup on you and do your hair, but to make a session successful, to walk away with several great shots, you have got to be able to model. Let's work together to develop and display your modeling talent!
Friends are those I have worked with or would like to work with. If we're not moving in that direction, then there's no point in listing each other as friends. If I've added you as a friend, but for some reason we're not moving toward a shoot, I will eventually delete you.
