About Me

[b]Spring 2012: Travel, Editorials, Tropical Lingerie & Video[/b]

[b]Wanna shoot?[/b]

[b]I'm Archer Stevens.[/b] There's a model on MM named Archer Stevens, too. I'm not him. He's in much better shape.

I'm hiring some editorial-quality models over the summer. If you're incredible, and you want to plan ahead, shoot me a note and let's see if I can use you.

[b]TF:[/b] I shoot a little bit of trade work with faces that I find interesting, or sexy, or compelling. [b]By a little bit, I mean 90%+ of my work is work I'm hired to shoot, and almost none is TF.[/b] All my trade these days is editorial work for magazine submission that involves nudity - magazines like Dansk, Purple Fashion, Blend, Vs., Russh, The Journal, Oyster. [b]Please be familiar with that kind of seductive editorial fashion if you want to do TF.[/b]

Honestly, though, I really only want to work with people who value the opportunity that a TF shoot represents. So: if you cancel on a trade shoot with me within 24 hours of the shoot, I won't ever shoot you in trade. You can hire me.

[b]I shoot for agencies.[/b] Also, I shoot for editorial and glamour magazines, posters, calendars, catalogs and websites. I use this site to meet new models and try out different styles of shooting. The stuff here is the stuff I do for fun.

If you're an agency quality girl, I can get you signed.

If you're not an agency quality girl (and you should know), why in the world are you trying to get into an agency?! Go shoot non-industry stuff and make a ton of money without having 20% taken off your pay.

If you want to shoot a typical modeling portfolio, I'll charge you for that. If you're conservative and shy in the pictures you want to take, I'll charge you for that. If you're a picture collector who wants to have tons of pretty pictures and call yourself a model, I'll charge you for that, too.

If you're gung-ho and rock my world during a photoshoot, we'll shoot a ton, and I'll build you a kick-ass portfolio.

[b]Always looking for amazing makeup, hair & wardrobe artists[/b]

[b]Let's keep in touch.[/b] I've found the only way to make sure there aren't tons of miscommunications here on MM is to have phone numbers for texts or voice for setting up shoots. If we're discussing a shoot, you'll have both my direct email and phone number. Please send me yours as well when we get to that point.

[b]Don't shoot TF with me if you want pictures from your shoot any time soon.[/b] Paying customers see their shoot within 72 hours of shooting. Trade shoots take forever. I'm finishing up edits and shoots from paid shoots in the weeks before I shot you, so you won't get your pictures right away. If you shot TF, the wait time right now for your finished, edited shots is about three months.  You can get quality fast and expensive; you can get quality slow and cheap. If you're looking for fast and cheap, you'll get trash. Editing takes time. 

Seriously, the best way to shoot with me right now is to hire me, or get hired by me. That way, at least you'll get paid for the shoot, and you won't get all pissed off waiting forever for your images. I just really, really don't have much time for TF, unless you're fantastic (like Jenni - two shoots, and wham -- Playboy).

Rant: If you're a model, why do you want to have the same boring, conservative portfolio as every other model? If you're taking a picture every model can take, you're not outstanding. Be bold; test your limits. Also, find photographers who will test you.
