Hello, thanks for checking out my page!
I'm a hobby level shutterbug with over 25 years of general photography (mostly tooling around, I wont lie), trying to expand & refine my skill with photographing people over the last several. This isn't my living, just something I do for fun, but I do try to be as professional as possible.
I started photography as a means to record my journeys throughout my Navy career. My primary experience is in landscapes, I've been all over the globe & taken photos in some of the most amazing places. I've also done some events, commercial work, weddings, motorcycle rallies, etc.
I had hoped I never needed to get on flakes, but thanks to a run of them resulting in me putting down my camera for almost two years:
If you change your mind, fine, let me know. If schedules conflict, something comes up, etc., fine, doo doo occurs, let me know. If for ANY reason what so ever you cannot make a meet/shoot, just PLEASE, let me know as early as possible! My free time is rare & is typically taken up, so if I set aside some of it for you please have the decency to let me know if things change at your earliest convenience.
I'm open to ANY kind of shoot (try me, I don't surprise easily). I'm up for anything from the mundane to the freaky, whatever helps me expand my experience base, allows me to experiment, & of course sounds like fun! I have some ideas that range across that spectrum, but I prefer to work with someone before I try to match them to a concept.
Also, I like models with ideas, so bring it!
I am not just some gnarly old GWC with a cheap point-n-shoot lookin for skin (I've heard enough horror stories, I don't want to BE one!). If you are thinking about working with me, I encourage you to contact any of the models I have worked with here on MM about their experience.
On that note, I have failed to deliver on one shoot with the lovely and talented Fur Elise & Mr. Figgz. I had a great vision, they thought it was good enough to give it a shot. Unfortunately that vision over reached my abilities with the cut down version of PhotoShop I own. Since it was a story set requiring no less than 8 frames, the cost to get a PS Wiz to help is out of reach for a simple project like mine. So! I believe you have to own your mistakes, I am claiming ownership on this one, and one day I hope to repay both of my gracious models for failing to deliver what I described in my vision.
When possible, I like to meet before doing a shoot so we can go over what each of us is looking for, ideas, etc., and get a feel for each other. It helps everyone relax when they have an idea of what to expect when the lens cap comes off.
Escorts are OK, encouraged even, so long as they don't interfere (or I may put them to work!).
