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. It reduces the endless messaging and texting that often leads nowhere as well as the number of shoots that are scheduled and fall through or have to be rescheduled.
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.
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've done quite a bit of studio work, but I prefer working on location. I spend a 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 working on, if you're interested in seeing some of the other types of photography that I do.)
WORKING WITH MODELS: (A RELEASE with PHOTO ID is REQUIRED for all shoots.)
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 or the model was in a hurry to finish up because she didn't realize how long it would take to get to her next shoot.
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 too many shoots go south because of impatient or jealous boyfriends.)
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".
