About me
My name is Keon and I am the owner of K&T Photography as well as the Director of Photography for Curvy Magazine.

You will find that I am easy to work with and provide a safe, low pressure, and fun shooting environment. I am always open to your suggestions. While I am a very laid back person, I take my art seriously. While I primarily shoot fashion, I am open to shooting other genres depending upon the concept. I believe in capturing images that showcase not just each persons beauty, but also what makes them unique.

I would love to collaborate with models, stylists, designers, MUA's, and other photographers. Let see what we can create together!

Models - Invest in yourself. Working with quality photographers, MUA's, stylists, and designers will make all the difference. And remember, you have to bring something other than nice looks to the shoot for it to be successful. Please take the time to research and practice your poses and above all, be creative!

"I think all art is about control - the encounter between control and the uncontrollable."  - Richard Avedon

Rates and Booking:
Please send me a message to inquire and receive my current rates and inquire about specials. Payment plans are available based on your budget and needs.

TF* Policy:
I am open to offers to shoot TF* but the number I accept are extremely limited. Please do not be offended if I reply to you with my current rates.

TF/TFP/TFCD - Time For/Time For Prints/Time For CD/Trade For Pictures. This is a collaboration between people where the benefit is the service of each other's talents. By definition, no money is exchanged in such arrangement.

Should we reach an agreement to shoot TF*, it is a must that you have a professional makeup artist that I approve of in advance do your makeup. Properly applied, camera ready makeup makes a huge difference in the quality of images produced. If you can not find a suitable makeup artist yourself, I will supply one for a discounted rate of $60.

Wardrobe is your responsibility as well so please keep this in mind when selecting the look that you want to shoot.

When shooting TF*, my time is being traded for your time, nothing else. You can view all of the unedited images from the shoot in a password protected gallery on my website for a limited time. I will also provide you with a select few pics of your choosing. If you would like additional images, you can either choose single images to purchase and download or place a print order.

A DVD of all of the unedited low resolution images from your shoot is available for purchase for $75. This DVD is for archival purposes only, no commercial rights are included. These unedited images cannot be posted online or printed.

Communication:

A meeting is required to ensure that we are all on the same page as far as looks and what we expect to get out of the shoot. We will take care of paperwork,  select outfits, and answer any questions you may have. The meeting also ensures that you know the location and won't get lost on the day of the shoot. It takes about 30 to 45 minutes to go over everything. I also require that you confirm your shoot by phone the day before. Failure to do so can result in the cancellation of your shoot.

Model Release:
A model release MUST be signed before we begin shooting. You will also be asked to sign and agree to not to not alter any of the images that are provided without my written permission.

Your Appearance:
If you do not look like the photos in your portfolio, i.e.; your images are heavily airbrushed, edited, or altered, please let me know in advance. Should this be the case, I will likely request an unedited picture of you as I would like to see the real you before booking.

Please come to the shoot prepared. Your hair should be done, fingernails should be manicured (toenails if wearing open toe shoes or posing barefoot), and your eyebrows well maintained (waxed or plucked). If shooting implied or nude, please be sure that any exposed areas are well groomed and maintained. While I shouldn't have to say this, some models tend to overlook these details. These are all little things that together make a difference in the quality of images produced. Invest in yourself and your appearance and you will reap the benefits of doing so.

Attendance Policy:
As my time is important to me, I'm sure yours is to you. I require all parties involved in the shoot to call and confirm their attendance the day before the shoot. Should you need to reschedule or cancel please notify me at least 24 hours in advance. If you do not, I will not reschedule. I always conduct myself in a professional manner and expect the same courtesy in return.

If you are going to be late, please call me before the time you are scheduled to shoot. If we are scheduled to shoot at 7am please arrive early so that you are ready to shoot at 7am. Leave for the shoot early enough to get lost, stuck in traffic, and still be on time. Being late can result in your shoot being canceled and it will not be rescheduled.

Escort Policy:
All of my sets are closed. Escorts are not allowed for any reason. If you are unsure about this policy, feel free to contact any model that I have worked with and they will assure you that I provide a safe and professional working environment at all times.

Image Delivery:
Within 72 hours of shooting, I will upload a few select unedited images to a password protected web gallery. After choosing your images, the previously agreed upon amount of retouched images will be delivered via e-mail within 45 days.

Photo Retouching:
I am a photographer, not a retoucher. I will only do basic editing and retouching. This includes properly exposing the images, color correction, and very light skin smoothing. I will not make you look unrealistic (like a doll or mannequin, etc.) or remove blemishes. If you would like for me to remove stretch marks, cure bad acne, reshape your body, whiten teeth, change the background, etc. please let me know before we shoot and I will quote you a price to do so.

Copyright:
Federal law states that the photographer is the sole owner of the copyright for their work as soon as the image is taken. Models, whether TF* or paid, you are granted the rights for specific or broad usage of these photos as defined by the contract or a model release that was signed. There is no joint copyright ownership unless it has been agreed upon by the photographer or you buy the rights. As a side note, my copyright is not for sale.

Traveling:
I am always open to traveling to you no matter where you are. Aside from my normal rates, my travel arrangements must be paid for in advance. I'm a reasonable person and don't expect to stay in a 5 star hotel or fly first class. A bus, plane, or train ticket, clean hotel room, and transportation to and from the shoot is all I require.

Travel Dates:
TBD

I think that pretty much covers all of the major sticking points I've come across over the years. If you have any questions or concerns just let me know and we can discuss it.

Current Castings:
TBA
