Don't be silly kids, I know this is social networking, but if you really want to work with me stop it with the vague and open ended wall posts. Send me a nice descriptive message and lets make some great images.
Honored you may like my work but no fly by friend requests, only people seriously considering working with me:
In this sea of mediocrity, lets offer each other something exceptional.
Hello, I am a young photographer based out of Boston and the South Shore.
My work's primary focus is:
Fashion, Glamour, Portraiture,
Conceptual/Fine Art and model portfolio building
Extensive work also includes Runway/Fashion Show and Event Photography
I am also proficient in Photo Shop Retouching.
When working with me:
Be comfortable with who you are. Be comfortable with your body(I can't stress that enough). And bring 110% to the creative table. Modeling is 50% acting and 50% bullshit. Play a new part, step out of your comfort zone and be something amazing. Have a good time, enjoy this. We get old and wrinkly fast.
This is a job. Understand if you want qualities pictures made you have to pay. This goes for every creative, if you are good at something don't undercut your worth. I do limited tfp
, and I do mean "limited" but it is reserved for wild amazing people who will be subjected to my crazy ideas involving getting really dirty/freezing/nudity/or flying. But ask, I don't bite. Check my website, www.michaeljacobsphoto.com
for my rates and see what I may be able to do for you.
At bare minimum
24 hours with appropriate excuse. I don't want to hear that you had a bad fight with your significant other or that you are feeling fat. Do you call out sick to your "normal" job because of these reasons? This is reserved for acts of war, grandma or kitty passings. I have absolutely NO tolerance with flakes. Don't treat modeling as an after thought with a photographer that works hard for a living. A lifetime of crappy photos wished upon you. Time is valuable, do not waste it paid or unpaid.

It is totally flattering to receive random friend requests. What is even more flattering is knowing why. Send me a message and lets collaborate
I don't believe I have scared anyone off(yet)
Most do come back, which is the biggest compliment I could ever get. Id be happy to send you any contact info for models on and off Model Mayhem.
Bring someone if you feel "scared" god knows why one would? I have no interest in you other than to make a perfect collaboration. I will put them to work.
