About Me

Welcome to my speck of dust in the model photography universe. I'm Jack Snyder. I consider myself largely a portrait photographer, including the genre of artistic nudes. My influences range from Twentieth Century masters such as Edward Steichen and Lewis Hine to great Nineteenth Century painters such as Ingres, David and Degas. I am attracted to the iconic and the sublime, to quietude, understatement, and emotional depth. 
My photographs have been called subtle, disciplined, raw, authentic, classic, and probably some other things I’d rather not mention and I’m glad I didn’t hear.
I'm happy to work within any model's limits and safety concerns. I'm easy to work with and patience is one of my virtues.  I have ideas and I give directions, but I stay out of the way when the model is doing well on her own. Most models enjoy working with me and no one has ever felt pressured, threatened, or harassed. Ask anyone who's worked with me. I'm a nice guy who's not looking for a good time.
    Usually, I work with and pay professional models. I don't typically give out pics if I'm paying the model, as I don't see paying someone to provide her a service. It's fine, however, if the model uses the posted shots from my MM page for her own online port.

My Statute of Limitations:
I avoid nose rings, lip rings and other body modifications. A small stud is OK if it doesn't protrude though the nostril.
False eyelashes, fake nails, hair extensions and so on are also things I stay away from. I have shot models who wear these but I seek and prefer a natural look.
Tattoos: I avoid these whenever I can and I have never shot a model who was covered with them.
Touch ups: Ordinarily, I do minimal touchups. I'm pretty good at retouching, but it's time consuming and I don't like it that much. Generally, I prefer to photograph a person rather than an idea.
Escorts: I now accept only female escorts at my home studio. If we do an outdoor shoot, you can bring whoever you want, as long as he or she is civilized and unobtrusive.
Drive-by Friend Requests are not particularly welcome.  I have this old-fashioned idea that friends are supposed to be people you know. If you need to contact me and are restricted from doing so by MM's current message policy, please reach me through my other website, which I have a link to above.
Comment for Comment: I don't bother myself with these offers and consider them to be empty calories. If you get a comment from me, as many do, it's because I admire your work. Reciprocation is not expected.

Photographs really are experience captured, and the camera is the ideal arm of consciousness in its acquisitive mood. --Susan Sontag

"Working with Jack was productive, humorous, and fulfilling. We hit it off through our mutual goal of capturing images focused in on the spectrum of human emotion. I had a great time chatting with Jack and I learned a lot about photography in the process. If you get the chance ...to work with him; do it! He's friendly, funny, creative, and he knows his stuff!! :)" more less
