About Me

I've been on Model Mayhem since about 2006 and I have worked with hundreds of female models and over a dozen male models in and out the studio doing casual, portrait, fashion, glamour, and some artistic or implied nudes. Some were doing it for fun, some went on to making it a career in print and film.  I do shoot for the fun and creativity aspect of it.

I have been on a bit of hiatus since 2015 when I took a new day job which requires me to travel about 25% of the year but I am looking to start shooting again locally as well as on my travels.

I now live in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho after living and Anchorage, Alaska for most of my life.
I travel a lot for my day job within the US as well as internationally so try to arrange shoots when I travel in the evening and weekends as well can with advanced planning can break away for a few hours during the day for shoots in the immediate area.

What I really enjoy and have the most experience doing casual or non-standard portraits of people; usually in the outdoors. I regularly do Sports, Wedding, and Nature photography as well but hands down enjoy photographing people the most.

I am always looking to meeting new people and the building my own portfolio, though I am most happy when I am doing photography work on a regular basis.

I am interested in various forms of TF* work or mix of Compensation and TF* depending on the shoot, the model, and their experience. (See notes on what TF* is for me)

I shoot indoors, outdoors on location, as well as have an in home studio. I will also shoot outdoors in almost any weather as long as the model is game and it will not get either of us in legal trouble or it will destroy my gear.

I regularly travel, and sometimes I bring a little gear with me and other times a bring a lot with me.. so if I am contacting you and you are not from your area I may be thinking about coming your way.

I also do photos for people for the enjoyment of it without a modeling release under special arrangement. So if you are interested in modeling in exchange for private photos I cannot use publicly or in limited circulation I am also interested in that arrangement sometimes as I just enjoy photography and the opportunities it provides.

I want to photograph females, males, and couples of all shapes and sizes.

Note: Though I do shoot nudes, I will not ask a model to do them unless you explicitly express an interest in doing them or have done them before.

No matter what type of shoot we do, I can provide a safe environment and my conduct to be professional. I welcome and encourage non-distracting chaperons to be along for the shoot and will respect what you are comfortable shooting. I also never touch a model unless explicitly asked BY THEM to help with something or given explicit permission to do so by them.

I ask that anyone I work with show up On Time, and communicate if you are going to be late or cannot make it in advance. If you fail to show I will be less likely to recommend you, nor will I give you a compensation job until you make up that time with me.

As of August 2019 I am looking for few things in particular:
1) Models and couples for specific projects I am working on.
2) New Faces and Looks.
3) Model to semi-regularly work with in the CDA / Spokane that is up for random photo experimentation to see what type of photo we can get in studio, intricately planned shoots, as well as quick random locations we may find as I have time.

Talk to you soon,

Christopher

Note: I am not one to heavily Photoshop my photos, which I realize is common these days or essential to others style. It is not mine. I do this for the photography not to sit in front of the computer. I do some basic adjustments and touch-ups but rarely go beyond that in 'enhancing' photos.
Note 2: TF* for me means you get the best from the shoot, it does not mean you get a copy of every out of camera image I took. You get a reasonably sized set (min 10) images selected and processed by me.
Note 3: I generally also only accept friend requests from those I have shot with, plan to shoot with, or personally now. I do not accept friend requests or generally respond to photoshop photo retouchers.
