Due to some health issues I will be taking some time off.
I really enjoy my work!
I started taking photos with a homemade box camera when I was a kid. Ever since I have been fascinated by faces. It was natural for me to start capturing those faces on film. I also have done work for numerous clients photographing products, properties and workplace.
Several years ago a friend/model asked me to do some head shots. I was hooked!
I really enjoy working with new or aspiring models.
That's why I have continued to shoot TFCD for just about any new model who asks, when I have time.
I do not pay models unless I am contracted to provide a product for a client.
My rates are reasonable;
Studio and local: $150 for a three hour session.
Beach and over ten miles: $250 for a three hour session.
Sessions requiring more than three hours are priced based on the time needed and the location. Any expenses, such as, hotel rooms, specialty equipment rental, costume rentals or location related fees are the responsibility of the model or client.
My policy is to provide all photos taken, unedited within five days. I will also provide at least five edited pics. Model releases are required. Payment is due at the beginning of the session.
No deposit is required but no-shows will not be rescheduled unless 24 hr prior notice of cancellation is received.
I appreciate the work of others and am always looking to find new ideas. I save photos on MM's lists as a way of remembering and studying techniques.
I am a father and grandfather. I raised my children to have fun but take care. I always recommend that young models travel with an escort at least to the first meeting with a new photographer. Better safe than sorry.
Bring me your ideas and let's find a way to turn them into lasting images!!!!
I just recently relocated to central Florida after living in the Chicago area all my life.
