Update November 17, 2015: I have been out of the country and out of action for a past few months. I have received a ton of PMs during that time for my casting call and I will respond to each and every one of them in the next 2 weeks. I apologize for not getting back to you guys.
I love to create gorgeous images and I am always looking to work with great models, MUAs, and hairstylists.
My rates are very reasonable.
If I send you a friend request, it means I would like to work with you.
I do NOT shoot TFP, unless I ask you to shoot with me or if you have some great ideas that would benefit both our ports.
NEW ESCORT POLICY: Please note that the photography equipment costs an arm and a leg. Due to recent thefts on my shoot, I do NOT allow escorts. This is Non-negotiable. You can reach out to the models in my port for references if you are worried about your safety. But, if you are a minor, then I REQUIRE that one parent should be present throughout the duration of the shoot.
Please feel free to add me to your FB:
Too funny! The best MM post ever. Just had to post this!

I finally met my match. I head-desked so many times during this conversation, my downstairs neighbor was convinced that I finally got a girlfriend.
The model contacted me through AIM, which was my first red flag, so I proceeded mostly due to morbid curiosity. Anyway, here's where it gets good.
Model: Okay, and since we're going to be shooting in an abandoned factory, I'll be bringing an escort with me, for safety purposes.
Me: Safety purposes? As long as you watch your step, it's safe. Lots of holes in the floor. I only ask people not to bring escorts for very simple reasons: I can't concentrate with people watching me, escorts have robbed me in the past, and I have no liability insurance. Also, there's a hefty amount of trespassing involved in some shoots.
Model: No, I just mean to make sure nothing happens to me lol I don't want to get raped or anything.
Me: Oh...shit, I'm glad you mentioned that actually! I left "Rape the Model" off my to-do list. I forget how well a felony rape charge and prison sentence helps business these days. I can even get free advertising on channel 17 and a little dot on a map of where I live so the neighbors even know about me...
Model: haha no that's not what I ment. I just feel the need to have someone there for my safety? Because i'll be naked.
Me: Well...what did you mean? You pretty explicitly implied that it was my intention to rape you. I've worked with 50+ models and the 11 that I gave you references to all gave me rave reviews, including [website], who I'm a staff photographer for! On top of that, a few dozen model for me on a repeat basis. I think raping all of my models might send up a few red flags.
Model: No, it's just that photographers will want to get touchy-feely with a nude model, you know? if a girls naked, they're going to want to get some.
Me: I've seen girls naked before. I'm not booking models so I can "get some". I'm working with them to create artwork, not illegitimate children. You seem to think that everyone with a camera is a potential rapist. Although, I must say, your ability to blindly insult people and seemingly ignore their response is quite impressive.
Model: okay so then my boyfriend can come?
Me: Absolutely! I can't wait!
Model: okay perfect. when do you want to shoot?
Me: ...Is your browser set to "Disable Sarcasm"?
Model: does october 6th work for you? I can't shoot Fridays now.
Me: Actually, I think my grandmother is going to die. All week.
