Mayhem # 670230
I began my career in photography at concerts. Loving music, I had a music blog that got me press access and the ability to photograph some incredible musicians, my highlight being Nine Inch Nails. From there I fell in love with fashion and commercial photography, and worked intermittently in those fields for the last decade. This year, I left my full-time job to pursue this career path, and am using Model Mayhem for networking and limited testing. If you would like to hire me, my rates are as follows for *almost* everything.
Inquire via message or through my Website/Facebook/Instagram. Generally runs around $150/hour.
I'm only testing with agency and agency-caliber models on limited projects. To protect the photographer and model, all tests and trade shoots will follow these guidelines:
1. No more than 3 looks per shoot. 2 hours maximum.
2. Maximum two 5x7 prints per look.
3. Ability to purchase digitals and prints.
4. Commercial licensing can be purchased.
5. Model Release signed for mutual non-commercial usage.
I am wanting to travel regularly, and am looking for other creatives (models, photogs, muah, etc.) who would be open to receiving a free shoot as well as commission (after expenses). If you have a sales background and would like to shoot + make money, send me a message!
July 27th-30th: Philadelphia
August: Bay Area (tentative)
I run a business, and every project I shoot with members on here is a means for me to improve my skill, test out a concept, or learn to collaborate better. If I contact you, it's with that goal in mind, so please don't flatter yourself and think I want anything other than to work with you. Additionally, please don't waste my time. If you don't want to work together, just let me know. If you cannot be relied on to clearly communicate or show up when we schedule a shoot, I will never work with you again. Emergencies are one thing, flakes are another. I also do my own retouching, so please do not contact me with your rates or offers.
