I have operated as Colonial Photograhy since 1987, and done side work for many more. But Until 87, I only photographed airshows and aircraft primarily. Then one day while showing some photos to a friend, his sister Mollie cruised through in her bikini, so I turned that thing loose on her (the camera that is). The results were good enough to result in her and her friends demanding more, so this snowballed into portfolios, portraits, weddings etc. I also did many of the local pagents to learn technique .
WARNING to all you chix who drink diet stuff like I did since 77; DON'T DRINK ANYTHING WITH ASPERTAME IN IT !!! It is a DANGEROUS product that is in nearly all diet drinks, sweetners etc. As far as I know, Diet Pepsi is the only drink that is aspertame free. I had a few health problems that were likely the result of such.
Also, I've got some other great locations, and my am setting up my studio again. We may be able to do a trade.
And a WARNING to new models - You younger gals just starting out in this biz really need to be more careful and I suggest you take somebody with you when first meeting a "photog" on here, and meet in a public place initially. 99.% of the photogs out there are very reliable and safe, and value your safety and honor your wishes, BUT there are some who do not. You must be careful and take proper precautions. Also let somebody know where exactly you are going. Provocative requests are part of modeling, but you don't have to do anything you are not comfy with. Some recent events prompted me to say this, as this livelihood/hobby does not need any more bad press that makes us look bad.
****NOTE: I'M LOOKING FOR SOMEBODY UP FOR SOME UPDATED FLIGHT SUIT PIX (see two in portfolio) THAT CAN FILL THAT THING OUT AND IS A BIT STATUESQUE (it"s kinda big for most girls). I can pin it up and the model can do her own adjustments. One set in my portfolio is 25 yrs old and I was just beginning, but I have just updated that with an excellent model from this site. I want to expand that to a series with several more if I can. This is a TFCD job (a CD and a few prints to) for self promotion.
**** I have done portfolios and other requests for extremely reasonable rates, often for trade .
My more accurate location is North West Ga., the Calhoun to Cedartown area, all the way to Marietta. Things slowed a bit due to health etc, but I'm wanting to get going again. Need some newer material.
WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY is coming back again, since many have discovered that uncle Bubba has no idea WTF he is doing when shooting a wedding with his new digicam. Therefore this is my primary type of work that I am seeking, as I am far more reasonable than most in such work, and am very experienced. I can do all the announcement shots as well as associated events afterwards.
As far as general photography, I have references if anyone needs them, and you must absolutely BE OVER 18 WITH GOVT. ISSUED ID for me to even talk to you (blame the puritans, not me). I am very comfortable with you bringing escort, as long as it's not a possessive bf who wants to run the show. I've actually had good luck with a couple of models' open minded bfs who contributed positive ideas and helped out.
You can contact me on here, and I'll send my phone number per request if you wish to talk more, but it's quicker to contact me on skype as sleepingdragon57.
