About me
Jim Starks, Jr. is regarded as among the best emerging Fine Art and Fitness Photographers in the United States.  Formally trained at Otis College of Art and Design in Southern California.  Training, instruction and continuing education with Photography Master Classes have been completed through various  work shops and seminars to refine craft. Refining skills in softhware applications to enhance photographic and artistic vision.  Jim Starks, Jr. Photographs have been on exhibition in galleries in the following cities and States: Long Beach, Los Angels, Palm Springs, Norwalk,Valencia and Venice, California; Alexandria, VA.; and Houston, Texas.  Goals continue to be  working with Creative and driven Models, Fitness Models,  Actors, Art Directors, Graphic Designers and Photo Wizards. Artistic vision from Model Mayhem members will be a definite Plus.  I will consider a very select amount of TFPs and TFCDs from Model Mayhem subscribers assignments for a limited time. Fine Art/ Creative Nudes, Fitness and Body Form for figure studies are given priority for shoots and may be selected for book and Gallery Exhibitions.  A standard "Model Release" will be available for review and discussion as part of the  photography production planning process. All paid solicitations and trades (TFP/ TFCD) will require a signed Model Release Prior to Shooting.In case you are wondering, no form of nudity is expected at a shoot, unless agreed beforehand. I have No interest in creating pornography.

While I am selective about who I shoot on a TFCD/TFP basis, I am always interested in meeting  and interviewing new models who would like to be considered for TFCD/TFP shoots. If you would like to be considered for an upcoming TFCD/TFP shoot.  You will be asked to complete a model data form when I meet with you. I am only looking for dedicated, hard-working models who want to do GREAT ART!

If we shoot TF you can expect to receive your images within three weeks.  Typically you can expect to receive 5 or 6 images that will be edited to the standard you see in my portfolio. You MUST PROVIDE RELIABLE CONTACT, Email or mailing information.

As far as friend request, I don't really mind them but please introduce yourself. I’m here for business (connecting with agents, talent scouts, other talented models and photographers). I’m not here to flirt or hook up with anyone, Please respect my demands and maintain a professional attitude while you are here. I am very respectful of all individuals.

Always looking to collaborate with Wardrobe Stylists, MUA, & Hair Stylists
My time is limited.

I am accepting extremely limited trade work, only if your look suits one of my personal projects, I will contact you.   If you are wondering what kinds of models I am looking for,  I am mostly interested in  model who have a desire to collaborate and work hard. I have several artistic and fantasy styled  projects at this time.

Thank you for all the kind comments and tags! 

FYI  I prefer NOT to reschedule no-shows and/or last minute cancellations. My time is very limited and my work is very competitive. If you miss the shoot for any reason, PLEASE Call or Email me with an explanation.  If you don't plan to make the shoot, please don't schedule to work with me  in the first place.
