My other MM# 1657616 (pinup/fetish/fun)
I am a Dallas based photographer and instructor. I have been shooting for over fifteen years and teaching classes in photography and photoshop for ten.
If you are seriously looking to kickstart your modeling career, you need to listen to what I have to say. Me and my team of professionals will work with you one-on-one to teach you how to become successful in this business. Whether you take one of our informative workshops or hire us to make your compcards. We always provide our clients with more than they ask for.
I am really interested in doing much more creative work with some open minded and inspired models. I love shooting both outdoors and in-studio. I have two studios (Dallas, TX & Fort Lauderdale, FL). All I need is you to help make it happen. So, contact me if you'd like to pursue an idea or play a part in one of mine.
My Position on TF
First things first. MM allows many photographer enthusiasts on this website. I am not one of them. I shoot for profit. That being said, things just wouldn't be fair to newer models if photographers didn't volunteer some of their time to help them get started. If I contact you for a collaboration, it's for TF. If you would like to work with me, please just ask. I accept several TFs each month and would love to hear from you about ideas/concepts.
My Position on Model Payment
This one is really simple and should be in bold. I DO NOT pay models unless I am also being compensated for the shoot. Save the sales pitch for the enthusiast. If I contact you for a gig, or if you respond to one of my paid castings, you can be assured that you'll get compensated for the shoot.
I absolutely expect you to bring your "A" game to every shoot. That means getting enough rest the night before and practicing poses in the mirror so your photos don't look like something from prom night. I know I speak for hundreds of photographers that are frustrated by models that don't invest in their career by learning how to pose. Professional photographers invest thousands of dollars annually in equipment and hundreds of hours perfecting their craft. All we ask in return is that you practice, practice, practice.
Currently looking for models interested in:
Contact me to arrange a shoot. My compcard, headshot, and portfolio rates are very reasonable.
