**************** ABOUT FRIEND ADDING: ***************
I ONLY add friends if we have had prior communication. Period. I also add those I know IRL, people I've worked with, or people I would like to work with. If you would like to add me, please comment on an image, drop me a note, or post a tag--otherwise, I will assume you are simply collecting names. As IRL, friends require a bit of effort.
New York City based director/photographer.
I shoot with film. With rare exception, 99.9% of what you see is done in camera. Not Photoshop.
If you want to work with me you will need to be at least 18 years old and able to prove it. You must be comfortable with nudity. (Yours, not mine.)
I am on MM to find artistic collaborators. I only pay for jobs
. I DO NOT
pay for tests (TFP). Do not contact me for paid bookings. If I want to book you for a job, I will find you. Really.
Tests are a collaboration and a trade of services/time/talent to create images we both want/need. If photographer, hair, makeup artist, etc. are not getting paid, well then... If you want to be paid for a shoot, that is cool--but do not expect free images!
As somebody's mom once said (I think it was mine), you can't have your cake and eat it too.
