About Me

I've spent the past 14 years as a designer and art director, and have been shifting into full time photography since 2004. I'm looking to build mutually beneficial relationships with reliable and dependable models, wardrobe stylists and makeup artists. I give preference to those who will trade their time for prints, but depending on the project and budget monetary compensation may be negotiated. I require all models to sign a release; no exceptions.

I'm very easy to work with and although I may give some direction, I generally let the model do his/her thing. The atmosphere is relaxed and environment is one of collaboration. I'm not concerned with the amount of experience you have, but you must be reliable and very comfortable in front of the camera. Let's work together to make great and iconic images.

Some models prefer to bring escorts to the shoots. I don't have a problem with this but I do have some rules:

1. I'm the only photographer on the set/location during the shoot. No other cameras are allowed.

2. However good their intentions may be, they have no input on the shoot. They can tell you how they would have done it when it's all over.

3. They may be put to work holding flags or scrims.

4. The cost of admission for escorts is an ice cold six pack of Mountain Dew. I'm talking the classic Dew, not the red or orange crap. (Okay, I'm a flexible on this, but I'd sure appreciate it. smile )

After the shoot I will provide you with retouched, hi-res digital files. The quantity of files is dependent on how successful the shoot is. This may take anywhere from a couple days to a couple of weeks depending on my schedule, but you are guaranteed to get your photos.

I do fashion/glamour/swimsuit and lifestyle/stock images. (I like to shoot outdoors) I'm open to all body types, but anybody who has athletic skills (skate boarding, surfing, martial arts, etc.) is encouraged to drop me a line.

Please contact me and let's discuss some ideas, and visit my website at www.jimshoemakerphotography.com. My site is dedicated to my landscape photography, but if you would like to see more examples of my fashion/portrait work, email me and I'll send you a link. You can also find me at www.myspace.com/jimshoemakerphotography, or follow me on twitter at http://twitter.com/jimshoemaker.

I am currently seeking models who study martial arts and who would like to do some action photography. I'm looking to capture some nice kicks and aerial maneuvers, so you need to be flexible and fairly highly skilled in the art you study. Please contact me if you're qualified and interested.
