Artist Bio -
An active member of the Seattle goth scene, Bloodengel is known for his vivid backgrounds that seem almost alive; becoming characters in their own right. He began his career in audio-video production but quickly moved onto photographing bands. After a brief hiatus, an offer to shoot Queensryche turned him back to his first love. Since then a plethora of metal and industrial’s finest musicians and models have passed before his lens. His work has been described as dark and obscure and has been featured in numerous publications and art exhibits. His studio is located in Seattle’s Pioneer Square but his preference is for guerilla-style shoots in locations that have sparked his imagination. Most of his work is digital, but B&W 35mm is his drug of choice.

How I work...
TFP - I provide the client/model with a 'best of' selection of web images from the shoot for portfolio use. I also provide the client/model with free photographic prints of any images made for art shows from the shoot. After the initial edit, the client/model will go through a final approval process deleting any images he or she may not like. A copy of the models ID and a model release are required.
Paid Shoots (as in you paying me) - The client/model has full commercial rights to all of the images. I provide a DVD of high resolution images from the shoot. I provide a edited 'best of' selection of web images from the shoot. I also offer chemically processed photographic prints for an additional fee.
Paid Shoots (my client paying you) - If a client likes the work we have done together, they often ask me to bring the model in on their projects. If a client pays a model to shoot they are buying full commercial rights to the images, just like if you (the model) are paying the photographer for full rights to the images (see above). A copy of the models ID and a model release are required.
All models must be 18 years of age or older. Models are encouraged to bring a escort as long as they don't interfere with the shoot or the approval process.
If you have any questions or concerns please email email@example.com and put 'Model Mayhem' in the subject line. If you are a model wanting to schedule a shoot please provide a link to your portfolio as well.
Paid shoots take priority over TFP shoots.
