ABOUT ME
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Located in Manhattan, I'm a photographer, director, and producer, focused on perfecting the art of telling stories, whether it be through still photographs or video.

I’m always looking to push the envelope, with new, original, and unique ideas.

Sometimes, I’ll have an idea I want to create, and will seek-out a model that fits the shot. Other times, I like creating ideas the model brings to the table. All of the time, it’s  collaboration between the model and the photographer.

I’m always looking for new faces and ideas for my portfolio. If you’re interested in modeling for me, please e-mail me here: TalentSearch@exphoria.com

- I’m seeking models interested in TFP/TFCD (Time for CD) as well as paid nude shoots. When contacting us about a possible shoot, please indicate your rates for all the types of shooting you do, as well as any limitations.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
MODELS PLEASE NOTE
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

- If you’re interested in modeling for me, please e-mail me here: TalentSearch@exphoria.com

- I’m a professional, and very easy to work with. Just read some of the model testimonials on this page.

- Yes, I own my own lights. That's part of being a professional. I also maintain a professional Studio in Chelsea (Manhattan).

- I work mostly as TFP. On the rare occasion that I pay models, it's never usually more then the going rate here in NYC for that type of modeling. I appreciate and understand that models may be accustomed to higher rates based on their experience, the magazines they've been in, and quality of modeling they do. Though experience and quality are certainly important, I do this as an artistic endeavor (as opposed to a paying career - though I sometimes am paid for my work), and so I need to manage what I pay with what the going rates for models here in NYC.

- I typically respond to requests within 24 hours.

- I very rarely book for minimum time periods - especially if I’ve not worked with the model before. That being said, my shoots aren’t usually any less then 2 hours.

- Models need to be at least 18 years old.

- I’m big on communication, especially via e-mail. I prefer that you contact me through regular e-mail: talentsearch@exphoria.com

- If I contact you for a shoot, and for some reason you’re not interested in working with me, please be kind enough to send me a message letting me know.

- If we’re booked for a shoot, I expect that you will show up on time, and if you’re running late, call me to let me know.

- I NEVER ask models to pose beyond what was previously agreed to.

- I work fast, often doing several looks per shoot

For Paid Shoots ...

- I pay cash, at the end of the shoot. I do not pay in advance, and will not use PayPal.

A NOTE ABOUT NUDES
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It's kind of silly that I have to say this, but based on some odd replies I've received, It seems necessary...

YES, I shot a lot of nudes.
YES, I shoot a lot of non-nude work too, including glamor and fashion (more will be posted soon)
NO, I do not ask non-nude models to pose nude. I respect model's limitations - always have, always will.

- The clock starts ticking once I start taking pictures.


Thanks for your interest!

MODEL TESTIMONIALS

"Doing a nude photo shoot for the first time, I can honestly say that Tom made me feel comfortable and confident. He is a professional, respectful, and down to earth photographer. For any models who have never done a nude photo shoot, and want to do one, I highly recommended Tom. It was an honor to work with him I have no problem working with him again." Stefania

"I am simply speechless... You have been such a very talented photographer to work with, but not only that, a phenomenal true professional at that. Thank you for all of your reliability and professionalism... it was a true pleasure shooting with you. Cannot wait to work with you again... See you soon!!! - Aurie"

"I felt very comfortable shooting with Tom- he remained professional and positive throughout the whole shoot. He knew exactly what he was looking for- as a model I feel that is when shoots flow smoothly and the best results come. I'm reviewing the pictures now (which were sent very quickly), and I'm happy with the results! Wonderful photographer all around. Thanks."
Autumn

------------------------

"Any nude model knows that half of the shoot's success depends on being made to feel comfortable. I can say that Tom was a total professional, which freed me up to pose without having to feel self conscious or uneasy. I also appreciated his dedication to lighting perfection: he had an exceptionally wonderful eye for it."
Nik Black

------------------------

"I did a shoot with Tom and the experience was AWESOME!! He was extremely professional, quite the perfectionist with lighting and the set, but very easy to work with. The fact that he was receptive to my ideas made me feel like we were both two creative elements working together to actualize a vision of what we thought the shoot should be, as opposed to just a model and a photographer. I cannot wait for another opportunity to work with him again."
Tabitha


------------------------

"I had so much fun at my shoot. They made me feel comfortable and at home.
Everyone was very professional. I would love to have the opportunity to
shoot with them again!!!  Thumbs WAY up!!!"
Lisa

------------------------


“I just wanted to take the time out to say thank you for making the experience a pleasant and comfortable one. I had a great time and met some wonderful people along the way. Much success on your project and look forward to working with you in the future if ever the opportunity arises.”
Kyla

------------------------

“From beginning to end, both as individuals and an organization, Exphoria is a complete pleasure to work with. In an industry were shooting/filming nudity can become a thoughtless and often careless "procedure," Exphoria remained professional, creative, and sensitive to the models' needs throughout the shoot. Not only did I enjoy all interactions with Exphoria’s crew and staff, but I very much look forward to collaborating with them again!"
Conchita

------------------------
This was a fun shoot for me because the people were very laid back and professional. It wasn't a stressful environment and they made me feel very comfortable. I'd definitely work with them again!
