About me
"I've always been attracted to the beauty in the abnormal, the strange and the deformed, in it's sometimes comical, sometimes horrendously chaotic lack of structure, it becomes something so much more perfect, limitless and without comparison, as I one day strive to be. Limitless. Without comparison." - Me.

I am a student of the world, particularly in music and photography. I am based in western Sydney. I am extremely focused and passionate when I am working and when I am not.

I shoot anything from fashion to glamour portraits. I set myself a very high standard and I am always pushing myself to improve.

I am primarily a 'portrait photographer' but I am very experienced in all of the standards. From glamour to fetish, from weddings to funerals.

I have done extensive work involving creatives like actors and performers, advertising for small business owners and large internationals, modeling portfolios, commercial fashion and catalog work. You name it I've probably done it at least twice and I'm probably stupid enough to do anything again.

Likes:
*Gear freaks (guys who own and use more gear than they can carry)
*Natural light and using it correctly.
*Off camera and creatively used/bounced on camera flash
*Well presented/consistent work
*The zoning method for light metering.
*Shooting manual and actually having control of the shot
*The auto functions (anything that doesn't say M) and knowing when to shoot with them.
*Shooting very creative concepts or nude work. Lets face it, they're interesting, you standing in a field in casual street wear never will be.

Dislikes:
*Models. All of you. Kidding. I dislike "Models."
- a "Model" Is someone who, brand new to the industry, feels the false sense of entitlement because she's taking her clothes off and someone is taking a photo of it. You're not famous, neither am I. You get over you and I'll do my best to get over me too big_smile
*Photographers who say you should never shoot in full midday sun.
*Photographers who shoot in midday sun and don't know why.
*Gear freaks who don't take amazing photos.
*Harsh shadows across the face. Learn how to control light stops.
*Bare on camera flash
*Models who don't think they are amazing wonderful people who we should feel blessed to get to work with
*Sleazography (if you want to shoot erotic work, discuss it with the model. No surprises.)
*Poorly presented work and seeing photos that look flat and unfinished in models portfolios. ALL "PHOTOGRAPHERS" SHOULD STOP SENDING MODELS THIS FILTH. DO YOUR JOB.
*The "what was I thinking" blues when looking at older work.
*People who argue without doing their research. It negates the point of argument.

I practice a 100% honesty policy. I am straight with you from start to finish. This has led to...
...offending people! For a copy of my beautifully handcrafted apology letters send me a message (include a bad incident of your own to get us started. I love sharing stories.) In this vain, fickle and competitive industry I find it odd when people don't expect it to be full of vain, fickle competitive people. It's harsh, move on. I truly love each and every one of you, I only act when my own investment in this industry is threatened.

Finally, to models, photographers, school teachers, cops and anyone else who can take some sound advice: Don't be the drama llama. No one likes this guy and no one cares. We're all busy, we're all broke. If you're having a bad day that's no one else's problem and no one else's business in a professional environment. I will discard you like yesterdays jam if you exhibit this behavior. From one rude hater to another tongue

Warm Regards,
JJ

Credits
I have been shooting roughly 5 shoots per day for over 4 years now, working with literally hundreds of different people. From industry professionals to amateur models to private portrait clientele. It's too hard to populate this list.
