My name is Jay.  Photography is my passion and a source of pleasure I thrive on for the pure joy of creating art and working with creative people.  I love working with people and constantly strive to improve my own technique and to find new ways to bring out the best in others.  I have set up Lightsource Studios, Inc. to invite commercial and retail freelance assignments in portrait, fashion and event photography.  Rates are provided upon request.  During the week I am employed in my regular job and on the weekends I enjoy being an artist and photographer.

I am interested in selective TFI/TFP/TFCD* collaborations with models, makeup artists, stylists and students interested in Studio Art, Theatre Arts or Photography, and anyone who is creative, likes to get their pictures taken and would like to engage in a mutually enriching artistic experience. No prior experience is required.

*For those who are new and uninitiated.  TFI means “Time For Image”.  This the same as TFP or TFCD except that the images are delivered to you electronically. This means that both you and I will get a bunch of images licensed for commercial use in our portfolios in exchange for the time you put into the photo shoot. 

I have completed an Associates Degree in Photographic Imaging as well as a BA with a double major in Studio Art and Art History.  I have participated in Fashion Photography Workshops sponsored by leading Photographic Agencies.  I have also attended advanced classes in Fashion, Portrait and Night Photography at The International Center of Photography.

In my photographs I seek to create a look that is contemporary and edgy yet classic and formal.   I like all the lines and forms in my images to be esthetically pleasing in a classical sense yet I want my pictures to be from the present time.

                        $$$ NOTES FOR PAID MODELS $$$
_________________________________________________________________

I will frequently hire models for artistic photo projects.  Please feel free to make an offer with your rate if you want to shoot with me.  Please note that you will usually not receive any images from a paid shoot and I will have exclusive usage rights for the commercial use of your images.  If you are looking to obtain images for your own portfolio you can either offer to pay me for the shoot or agree to a TFI collaboration so that both of us can obtain images for our commercial self promotion.

                         NOTES FOR TFI COLLABORATORS
_________________________________________________________________

Business issues:
  All models are expected to sign a Model Release so that we can legally use the images from the shoot.  We will both have rights  for commercial use of selected images for our portfolios and our own self-promotion.  If you have any special concerns or stipulations please discuss these issues with me prior to the shoot.
  PROOF OF AGE IS REQUIRED FROM ALL MODELS AT THE TIME OF THE SHOOT.  ALL MODELS UNDER THE AGE OF 18 MUST HAVE A PARENT OR GUARDIAN PRESENT AT THE SHOOT. 


Your Images:
  TF collaborators will get an agreed number of images from the shoot.  On an average it takes about half an hour to fully retouch and finish each image that you receive from me.  So if you get 10 images from a 3-hour shoot I have actually spent 8 hours on the project.  You will have commercial rights to use these images for your self promotion.

Unretouched Images:
  The reason that photographers capture many images is to make sure they get some that are perfect for use.  Unretouched images are actually like preliminary sketches made for a painting and really do not represent my completed work.  However, you will receive small versions of all unretouched images watermarked as proofs so that you can select your desired images and keep the remaining proofs for private viewing.

Scheduling:
   I usually schedule my shoots several weeks in advance.  Please do not be a no show or try to reschedule at the last minute, this is really not cool and totally unprofessional.   

Wardrobe and Makeup:
  You will be providing your own wardrobe for the photo shoot.  You need to be prepared to do your own makeup or you can bring your own makeup artist to the shoot.

Credits
My thanks and my best wishes to all the amazing talent I have worked with. The experience has been priceless, and I really appreciate the joy we have shared and the spectacular pictures that we have created. I wish all of you success and happiness on your life's journey.
