:::::::FREQUENT QUESTIONS ANSWERED BELOW:::::::
I was in an accident months ago and now am finally able to go back to photography.
Photography is a passion and I am always looking to create. I am very easy going and I like to collaborate with my models to see what creative input they have for a shoot. I like them to feel comfortable and confident in what we are creating.
If you want to have a shoot with me or have one in mind send me a message and we'll see what we can do. I will openly admit that I am a PERFECTIONIST ( I want the photo to look as flawless as possible) however that does NOT mean I am RUDE or DISRESPECTFUL I expect a professional attitude when working with models. Respect is mutual and you shall receive it working with me. I like to have a positive environment and make it a great experience (otherwise I wouldn't do this) so please if you have a diva attitude go to someone else.
:::VERY VERY IMPORTANT:::
If you want QUALITY photos(most of the time) you have to spend some money to create a strong portfolio, once you have that you can start charging. I DO NOT pay models ESPECIALLY if your portfolio consists of photos a friend took of you on your bed.
I DO limited TFP/cd, as I edit the photos myself or on special occasion have a re-toucher add a little extra to the photo. If I like your look for a certain project I will contact you, if you think your the look I want your more than welcome to contact(i dont bite).
I do NOT give out raw images(although I do not mind the model telling me which are their favorites), reason being... I have had models take raw images and have others claim the work for themselves because they "edited"(changed contrast) of the photos, sorry but just protecting my work.
It is mandatory for me to speak with you over the phone or on skype before the shoot.
Escorts are totally fine as long as they do NOT interfere as soon as they do the shoot is over and we will not work again.
I do have models sign a waiver (msg me for the details on it and yes it does include that you can use the images we take for your portfolio and for a agency).
My rates are reasonable and I try to adjust to everyone's budget. However depending on the concept, location, wardrobe change, need for a team etc. the prices will change. For example my base rate is:
2hr-$150 includes unlimited shots but you will choose and only receive 5 edited photos.
4hrs-$250 includes unlimited shots but you will choose and only receive 10 edited photos.
I'm sure you get the point and can do the math, however remember these are subject to change depending on concepts and various other factors; final pricing will be settled before shooting. Also I do have my own transportation but if you live far there will be a fee (gas is expensive).
I know that I may seem like a person with a lot of "rules" but I am very upfront and I rather you know what to expect. Most of the models I shoot tend to become repeats because I am about creating that perfect photo. I do it with positivity and professionalism, I do not put models down or humiliate them(pointless in my opinion).
