About Me

Please read COMPLETELY before contacting me.

Everything you need to know….
If you like my portfolio and are interested in working together, great, feel free to send me a note. However, before you do, please be aware:
• I prefer working with models willing to shoot TF. I have no interest in paying you to update your portfolio, though I sometimes cast for specific paid sessions.
• All sessions take place in my studio. Depending on the weather and time of year we may be shooting on location.
• You'll be expected to bring your own wardrobe and/or MUA. However, many times I choose to bring selections to support a particular idea or concept. That said, your profile should contain your accurate/current measurements and sizes.
• I like to explore a number of styles and ideas, so a typical session can last 3-4 hours.
• I will provide copies of selected, finished images with watermarks, but I retain ALL rights to my images. This is spelled out in the model release you'll be required to sign.

What I'm looking for….
I'm very selective with the models I work with and have certain criteria I look for:
• Female models; I'm looking for unique and different looks. I also look for a variety or range of work in portfolios which demonstrates the versatility of the model and their understanding of lighting and posing.
• Male models; I'm generally looking for high levels of physical fitness as well as defined facial features and engaging eyes. Limited experience is acceptable, but your work should demonstrate a comfort level in front of the camera.

Tips for models….
• Be professional and treat others with respect on MM. If someone contacts you, REPLY to them even if it's to say you're not interested.
• If you are booked for a session, SHOW UP. If you're unable to make it for any reason at least give the photographer adequate notice.
• Be ON TIME. This should go without saying.
• Be CLEAR about your limitations. If you're unwilling to consider implied or artistic nudity, say so. But remember, the human form is one of the most beautiful subjects to photograph, and if you're uncomfortable in your own skin, this will limit the assignments you'll get if modeling is your chosen career.
MOST IMPORTANT I have ZERO TOLERANCE for flakey, unprofessional people. My sessions are scheduled weeks in advance and if we have agreed on a date, confirmed the session multiple times, and you cancel at the last minute, DON'T bother contacting me again. I put a significant amount of planning into each session; I design a shooting style and shot list, I secure wardrobe, I schedule an assistant AND sometimes a stylist. So don't assume I'm simply showing up with a camera and turning on some lights.

My time (like yours) has value, so don't waste it.

Photography sessions, details, and security….
• While most people on MM seem to be legitimate, it's important to always protect yourself from potential scams or dangerous situations. The key is common sense, if something doesn't feel right, just don't do it.
• If we decide to work together there will be significant communication and agreements on all details prior to the session. To ensure you're communicating with me—and not someone else using my information—you will receive an email from me at MY web domain, fluencyphoto.com. If you are contacted by anyone else or ANY other email (yahoo, Gmail, etc.), simply delete it. For this reason, I do not communicate via MM beyond our initial contact. I will also provide you with my phone number prior to our scheduled time in order to confirm our session 24-hours in advance.
• I encourage and welcome any questions prior to working with new models and always do my best to respond quickly.

NOTE TO RETOUCHERS: I appreciate the comments and emails, but please note, I NEVER outsource my editing.
