I don't sugarcoat any comments. If I tag you saying that I like your work or would love to work with you. I truly mean it. I don't pay models but I can contribute some fantastic work to your portfolio. I may fall behind on tagging/commenting ( and usually do and forget where I left off ) but if I send you a friend request, its because I like your look and your work!!
Paid work :Portfolios / Private Shoots:
I will discuss my rates to you in private not on a public forum.
Shooting your concepts, whatever you want, at the studio. Hair / Makeup / Studio Fee, and editing of images included. Clock starts when you go in to make-up and stops when the last shot is taken. You will also be required to sign a limited release, allowing me to use your images for self promotion only (on-line and printed portfolio).
Once in awhile sure, why not, however keep this in mind: I only shoot with models who meet my specific criteria. Please don't be offended if I do not agree to shoot you. I will shoot our concepts / ideas, and you should be willing to do whatever it takes to get the shots done. You will have to sign a full commercial release allowing me to post your pictures on modeling websites. I will either arrange for you to recieve a photo disc of watermarked images for you to choose your favorites for editing or you can allow me to choose what I feel are the best images from the shoot to have edited for you and then send the final product to you. I am an experienced model agency photographer and I will do a limited TF session if I feel you are an exceptional model. If I contact you about doing a shoot then I feel you are one of those exceptional new models that have a special, certain look about you that I would love to capture. If you see my profile first and like my work, you don't know............you may have the look I think is exceptional!!!
RESERVATION FEE: Please read..........
Due to an increase in models that tend to cancel out at the last minute or those that just don't have any intention of ever showing up for a shoot, you know the ones that are just on here with a profile for kicks with some weird profile name that is more suited for Facebook or Myspace. I am being forced to begin charging a small $50 photographer reservation fee from you before I do anything on my end. This small fee from you will be your word that you " will be here for the specified shoot " barring any major happening. When you show up for the shoot, I will gladly return the $50 fee back to you in good standing. Fair enough......
