My name is Cole (if you hadn't figured that out yet) and I have been known to wield a camera and produce photographs (or at least that's what my diploma says).
Humour aside, I'm a photographer that rather enjoys taking creative photos and working with other creative individuals and that's ultimately why I'm here on MM.
I am mostly looking for models for TFP shoots, mainly in the vein of fashion/fine art. Currently, I've got a number of vaguely thematic shoot ideas, generally with a feel of surrealism or a dreamlike look - think lots of natural light, skewed colors and high contrast. Also, though there are nudes in my portfolio, it's certainly not all I do, so please don't assume that.
As well, I'm always looking for models to collaborate with for sets on Zivity (www.zivity.com
) - preferably one's with body mods (tattoos, piercings, etc) but I'm definitely open to anyone with a unique look. It's a pretty rad site in that it's an artistic community for photographers/models and you can earn money via member votes on your set (they also don't steal you images like many similar sites).
I'm also working on a series of environmental shots people with lots of tattoo coverage and/or body mods. Give me a shout if you're interested and qualify for that.
I'm a rather laid back person (no drama please) and try and be as easy to shoot with as possible. I've got definitive views and opinions on photography and I've got a rather sarcastic sense of humour. I'm also not a creep/hack, there are enough of those on the internet calling themselves photographers.

I actually have a strong opinion on the positive aspects of nudity and it's place in the photo industry - go here to read my rant about it if you're so inclined (and no, that's not all I shoot): http://www.modelmayhem.com/mystuff/view_bulletin/198740
