My interests are photography and art.
I work at my home-studio and teach a few classes there as well. Most of my paintings are oil and acrylic, but recently I've found new love for watercolors.
I teach classes of drawing still nature and life figure drawing and fairly often need models for these classes.
If your are local and have interest in posing for these classes in exchange for money or maybe simply to add a few sketches of yourself to your portfolio - feel free to send me a message.
Photography lately became secondary to me mostly because I do not have as much time for it as I used to. Therefore, I have to give priority to paid projects first. However, if you want me to consider working with you on TF, you need to fit in one of the projects that I have. List of projects is available upon request.
Currently I shoot with Nikon D300 digital, Olympus E-500 digital (backup), and Pentax 645N medium format film (120 and 220).
Prints up to 13x19 can be produced in the studio, anything larger has to go to the lab. CD with finished images available for pick-up or shipping/e-mail/download within 14 days from the shoot. Image manipulations - extra charge. CD with slide-show of proofs for your selection available same day if you can stay about an 1/2 hour after the shoot.
I do have a few basic requirements:
- escorts are welcome as long as they remain in waiting room;
- I am open to detailed discussion of the project prior to the shoot, but once we shoot - no drama is expected or tolerated.
- if you have a problem with something - speak up. I am not a psychic to guess what's on your mind.
My rates are fair and reasonable.
