About Me

Hello, I am Lou of Custom Creative Photo. I am willing to assist both upcoming and experienced models with projects to help build their portfolios. I will even go so far as to build them custom comp cards... A lot of models post a few images and expect people to hire them for paid work, but a pretty face does not make a model. Its about posing, understanding lighting, and bringing emotion to the session. You have to be able to add to what the photographer is doing in order to earn pay as a model. So, if you want legitimate paid work, you need to have a portfolio that supports that.

On that note...I am willing to shoot TF with models, but I prefer models that are serious about the images they post and use in their portfolio. I require a non-refundable retainer of $150 to book a spot on my calendar. If $150 sounds like too much for you, consider this - my rates for professional head shots are $200. I am willing to shoot several looks and give you full resolution images to help you gain high quality employment. You will make this back in an hour or two of work.

Thanks for reading!
