I use this site as an outlet for trying out new ideas. If you like my work and want to set something up, send me a message and we can work out the details. I do have a full time job at a law office in London ON where I work Mon - Fri 8-4. I'm sure you can appreciate that this cuts into my shooting time.
I'm not in a position where I will be paying models right now. Please don't send me a request to work together and then send me your rates. If I'm going to pay for a model, I'll track you down based on what I'm looking for. I'm also not a hypocrite, so I DO accept TF offers, just not all of them.
WHO WILL I SHOOT WITH: I will not shoot with minors under any circumstances. I will also not shoot with dudes. If you're not in one of the aforementioned categories, get in touch, lets see if we can make something work. If you flake on me for a shoot, we're through, period. You can also guarantee that I'll share the information with other professionals in our area if they ask. Life happens and I get that but it if we've booked a shoot I will have provided you with a phone number AND an email address on top of being able to communicate here, there is NO excuse for lack of communication.
FRIEND REQUESTS: If I send you a friend request it is because I am interested in working with you. I don't accept friend requests from models that are not geographically close enough to work with. I also don't accept friend requests from retouchers. I also clean up my friends list quite regularly. If you add me (or vice versa) but you can't reply to a message about working together (even if it is to say no) then I will remove you, this isn't a popularity contest...I don't care how many friends I have on my list.
WHAT DO I WANT TO SHOOT: If you want to know what kind of shoots I'm interested in, check my lists (I have several) and it should give you a clue. Any list that starts with an x was created to give people ideas for a Casting Call.
WHERE CAN WE SHOOT: I don't have a fancy studio. I have space in my home that I rearrange to add some lighting and backdrops to. It is not a fancy space but it gets the job done and it's warm/dry. When I post an image that was taken here, it will have a location of Home Studio. I love doing location shots as well, they tend to have more character than your standard studio work.
ESCORTS: Your comfort and security is key to a great shoot. I encourage you to bring a FEMALE escort with you but I will not allow any male escorts into my home. My comfort is also key to a great shoot and having a strange man in my home around my wife and son is not comforting to me. He is more than welcome to drop you off and meet me but he can not stay, sorry.
If you're coming into my home, I'll be checking references and I would encourage you to do likewise. I'm also willing to meet up with you before our shoot to discuss plans for our shoot and your male companion is welcome to join us there, hell I'll even let him buy me a coffee/pop/beer
