Hi ya! Welcome to my humble MM page. Who am I? I'm an artist, a photographer, a visionary! Always open to collaborating with anyone who wants to create new images! I am looking to create some new work on new projects and am open to working with models who are open to creating simple photographic art. I am looking to work with models unafraid of being photographed in a way that captures the naturalness of beauty. I shoot a mix of digital and film, yet my love is for film. The process, the thought, the care that goes into capturing an image on film.
While for certain projects, yes, I do use make up artists,retouchers and such, I enjoy capturing raw beauty.
Perfection is kind of boring and mundane after a while. The beauty for me is finding the perfect in the imperfections!
I am a minimalist. One camera, one lens, one light! I prefer that my focus be on my subject and creating, rather than how much lighting and equipment I have. My goal is to create something full of awesomeness from little or nothing. If interested in working together or just passing through, feel free to reach out.
THINGS 2 KNOW:
I'm a cool guy
I'm good at what i do, so work with me because you like what I do; not what someone else does!
I LOVE this photography thing! I do this because I love the art of it, not to get rich. I make a good living doing what I do, which allows me the freedom to do this. This is my ART. This is my PASSION. This is my FREEDOM!
FRIEND REQUEST: If I have sent you a friend request, it is not just because. It's because I have viewed your work, read your profile and have found one or both of them to be quite interesting, and would like very much the possibility of creating art with a Super Cool Human Being such as yourself.
Therefore my friends list is comprised of those that I have worked with, will be working with or would like to work with.
If I remove someone from my list it is not personal. It only means that we were unable to creatively make something happen, but you are still Super Awesome in my book!
THE BUSINESS: Yes, the dreaded business. Well, for me it's actually quite simple. If we agree to collaborate, collaboration to me means a mutual agreement by both sides to offer something to create an outcome that is beneficial to both sides. In short, we agree to get together to create some Super Cool Awesomeness, art, photography and such.
This will happen in one of two ways. The RED pill, we agree to mutually trade talents and tumble down the rabbit hole together to see what we can create. In the end we both end up with images, a publication, exhibit, or something of the such. The BLUE pill, I compensate you financially for your time and talents, in which you are being paid for a service to help me bring a vision to life. With this option you get the cash and I get the art. Photos from paid shoots may or may not be given and will only be done so as a courtesy. Pretty simple.
TRAVEL EXPENSE: Yes, I will cover them. What this means? I will cover the cost of round trip airfare plus the cost of your hotel stay for your time here shooting with me.
***airfare will only be booked to and from the same airport of origin. This means simply that my obligation is for your time working with me. While I understand that some may want to try and secure other work or find other photographers to work with while in the area, that is not my responsibility. It is not my responsibility to pay your travel expense to leave from my destination to go to another destination to work with another photographer. If you so choose not to fly back to your place of origin, you will be responsible for your travel cost to your next destination or that photographer must cover that cost for you just as I did to fly you to me. It is not my responsibility to cover your travel cost to fly to another photographer, I am only responsible for roundtrip accommodation for your time working with me.
I think that's pretty fair.
Escort policy: you are more than welcome to have someone accompany you to the shoot as I do understand your concern for safety, especially this day and age. That being said, I don't need a babysitter. I have been shooting for a number of years and have always conducted myself in a professional manner. Once we begin the shoot, I do not need input or assistance from your escort. If I need an assistant, I will hire one. I might be a bit unorthodox in the way I do things, but that's just my way.
If you need references just ask.
