I'm always interested in working with models who might want to collaborate on one of my project shoots. I make all arrangements for test/trade and projects shoots with models by a PHONE CALL or PERSONAL MEETING prior to the shoot. Personal contact early in the process reduces the endless messaging and texting that often leads nowhere, as well as the number of shoots that fall through. (More than three out of four shoots that I set up through MM either have to be rescheduled, are cancelled or the model doesn't show up at all, even after confirming the shoot.)

I have a strong background shooting fashion. Currently, I'm concentrating on personal projects and adding to my stock image library. I've got various projects that I'm working on. A lot of my work is experimental. I'm looking for classy, edgy, unusual, sensual images that have a strong editorial, commercial, ethereal or artistic element to them.

I'm particularly looking for models just starting out with strong agency potential, models who picture themselves in a year or two walking the runway, being featured in editorial layouts and handling commercial assignments: models that have the dedication, dependability and a collaborative spirit to follow through.

If you're not serious about shooting, don't waste your time or mine. If you've cancelled, rescheduled or didn't show up for three or more shoots in the last six months, it doesn't make sense to set up a shoot.

BACKGROUND

I have considerable fashion photography experience, including a wide range of runway coverage, such as LA, Orange County and Las Vegas Fashion Weeks. I've also shot a wide variety of fashion installations, specialty events, store and facility opening, and product launches.I still do occasional runway shoots and some installation coverage, but very limited.

I've done quite a bit of studio work, but I prefer working on location. I spend considerable amount of time scouting locations and trying to find new places to shoot, both on my own and with models that I'm working with.

I've written several books on photography (that was a long time ago, but I think they're still on Amazon). My work has been carried by some of the top photo magazines in the country. I've taught modeling (and photography) and have done a lot of model coaching, so dedication and dependability are more important than experience.

If you want to see a larger selection of my model shots, click on the link above. It will take you to a Model Portfolio Gallery. (There are various other model, stock and travel galleries in that collection that I'm in the process of building up, if you're interested in seeing some of the other types of photography I get involved in.)

WORKING WITH MODELS: (A RELEASE with PHOTO ID is REQUIRED for all shoots.)

Please read this if we're going to work together. It answers many of the questions that come up.

Since most of the project shoots that I’m doing are a little more involved than basic test shoots, they take a little more planning. That's why the phone call or personal meeting before hand.

Just FYI... I don't schedule models that have another shoot planned for the same day, either before hand or afterwards. (I've had too many shoots delayed because a previous shoot ran late, sometimes hours late, or the model stated getting anxious about finishing up the shoot because she had another one coming up.)

If we shoot, bring a friend, if you want. A female friend works best, maybe someone to help with wardrobe changes, or hair and make up if there's no MUA or stylist involved. NO boy friends or significant others unless I've met them before hand, which means a personal meeting prior to the shoot. (I've had a number of shoots go south because of impatient, controlling or jealous boyfriends: things like a guy keeping the car running the whole time of an outdoor shoot on a hot day, guys trying to impress their girl friends with their modeling knowledge by giving them bad advice on how to pose, and a boyfriend of model actually trying to score with another model on the shoot, among other examples.)

NO entourages or groups of friends, EVER. They always say they're going to be off doing their own thing, but half way through the shoot they're sitting around commenting on how the model is doing, offering unsolicited advice, or trying to get the model to hurry up.

For trade shoots, I usually provide a CD with 25 to 30 images on it, including at least six optimized images per hour of shooting, within two weeks. I never provide all images taken, and I don't provide images on paid shoots, unless arrangements have been made before-hand. If we work together on an ongoing basis, I can also provide promotional material such as comp and zed cards, calendars, posters and display prints up to 13" x 19".
