One way or another, here you are. I started working with models last summer ('10). I still have another full year and maybe some change until I am done with school, before that I was a paratrooper and I also worked a couple years in commercial real estate.
Here is the deal... I know what direction I am going. At this point, my singular reason for shooting and putting together shoots is geared towards submission for publication. I am always interested in working with stylists, hair, mua, top models, etc.
In moving forward I want to bridge the gap with what I am already doing and start working more with editorial fashion stories, narrative, conceptual and avant garde. High fashion is the standard to achieve.
For new and developing models, I have amazing rates and spend a lot of time working with you on creating industry standard photos for your portfolio. Modeling is not easy, and beauty is not a recipe for success; I prefer to work with people who won't let themselves fail or give up. I provide a lot of feedback while shooting. Obviously the better your photos the more business and attention we both get!
I love to have a good time, the photo shoot is no exception.
Don't be a fool, if someone tells you they "shoot" for this and that magazine or several of them. Where are their tear sheets? People lie...
Everything has a cost, a trade shoot has a cost! I am totally dedicated and I expect the same out of everyone involved. Mediocrity and ordinary are NOT the standard.
On that note, a trade shoot with a poor "photographer" has a cost as well; you just consented to letting your image (the one you plan to make it big with) get trashed and published all over the internet.
