=============================================


I believe that any photoshoot is a collaboration between Model and Photographer. We can create some great images if we put our heads together!

I am skilled with the Airbrush and use Ben Nye and Createx paints which wash off fairly easily. 

I also like to dabble with Liquid Latex.  It's FUN!   Combine that with Body Paint via brush or airbrush and there's a costume that is KILLER!

You will also see some 'other' type of painting on my port as well - this is just FUN to do - sprayed out of the bottle onto the subject.........   Just check it out!

Enough about that - let's talk about the practicalities of painting one's body!

To do PROPER body Paint the subject should be nude to start with.   If you can't handle that - then please don't contact me.  Now - certain things can be covered prior to painting - but, essentially, you are nude with a thin layer of paint (or latex) on you.  As you can see in my pictures - I "NEVER" concentrate the lens on any private areas.  I try my best to tactfully 'hide' those by posing or lighting (or post-work).  It's my GOAL to get good and TASTEFUL pictures! 

Body Painting is neither easy or cheap.   I'm going to be honest here.   One OUNCE of Ben Nye paint is over $5.00   To paint your body with two coats of paint is over $15.00!    Liquid Latex is also quite expensive ($30.00 per body application).   I cannot afford to do give my skill at this, plus skill at photography away. At LEAST I require reimbursement of paints and materials used so please take that into consideration prior to contacting me.

=============================================


All models that work with me receive full copyright to the images we produce.  From our shoot they receive a cd with a high rez file of every snap of the shutter plus two versions of the ones that I edit (one optimized for 8x12 printing and one optimized for web-viewing).  I have a limit of 30 images to edit from a shoot which is a LOT of images!  After we shoot we'll both sit down at my computer and review the images we've shot and choose the ones that I'll edit.  Heck - if you have the time you can wait as I edit and take a CD with you when you leave!

Models who are at any stage will benefit working with me.   I shoot both outdoors, on location (and I know some GREAT ones) as well as in my home studio.  I have professional level lights, backgrounds, killer post editing software and the knowledge to use all of them to make YOUR pictures good!

I encourage all models to bring chaperones to all shoots.  Model safety and comfort is the key!  If a chaperone is present, I require both models and chaperones to sign our model/photographer contract as a witness.

If you want to shoot with me - please let me know.  My schedule ALWAYS has openings!

scaryCancellation Policy:

I have been extremely busy with photography lately, however over 60% of the models I've scheduled have canceled!

While I am the first person to understand last minute emergencies, the rate of 60% is too much!

Here's the way I work things:

1.  We both agree to work together and set a date/time. I also require a phone number point of contact. (I'm professional and not going to 'give it out' for pete's sake!)
2.  I contact you via phone (email or text) a few days prior to confirm that you're going to show.
3.  I contact you the day prior and confirm that you're going to show.
4.  I expect a call or text from you the day of the shoot telling me you're gong to show.

If a model cannot be contacted for #2 or #3 I send an email.  If no response is received by the day prior to the shoot I consider it canceled and will do my best to reschedule the time with models who show up when they say they will.

I can not afford this high rate of cancellations any more. I am a professional - I conduct myself professionally and produce consistently good results.  If I book time with you, that means that I've set that time aside from my day job, family and other responsibilities.  I expect you show me the respect of conducting yourself in a likewise manner.

The old saying applies, "Fool me once shame on you; fool me twice shame on me!"

That's my dog OSCAR.  He's a short haired mini-dauchshund.  As you can see - HE LOVES the big ball!   If you work with me - you'll have to deal with HIM!   big_smile (he's a GOOOD dog!)
