I'm Thi and I am a fashion photographer based in the bay area. I do very limited projects, but if you have a serious passion to undertake a career in the business of fashion (makeup, hair, modeling, etc..) please message me. I am more than happy to help others get one step to furthering their career. I especially love working with people who have little to no experience because I can teach them how to be prepared for future projects with professional photographers. Please understand that the work that I do is extensive. I can go above and beyond. So, the more you invest in the photo shoot the better the photo will become.
3 things I need to mention:
Trade work = low expectations. Paid work = high expectations.
The money goes to the time, efforts, wardrobe, makeup, hair, modeling, studio rental, and props for the photo shoots. Before sending out your inquiry, plan on the financial side of things. Please do not assume everyone's work is free. Remember that compensation is either 'a trade' or 'paid' with any service/business you book with.
Simple concepts = less work. Complicated concepts = more work.
I usually like to plan the concepts based on the look of the model. However, if you have an idea, feel free to write it out to me. If it is outside of the box (what cannot be captured with a camera), then most likely it will require more work and time.
Last thing I want to mention is that I work full-time a part from this. If I book a project, I will most likely reserve that time with you. Any cancellations (less than a week in advance) will be deemed unprofessional. Also, if I do not receive any responses from you I reserve the right to cancel the project. So, it's very important that you check your messages from time to time. These rules applies to all parties including me.
So if that didn't scare you off yet.. lol, then feel free to message me! :)
