I'm Internationally Published Photographer. Always looking for new faces.

I little about me
I've taught outdoor lighting workshops since 2008 along with hosting group shoot events with a fellow friend photographer. We were the most sought out photographers because of our beach shoots. We perfected our lighting and had no issues over powering the sun with our cheap Alien Bees, lol. We had many photographers messaging us about our camera gear and lighting equipment and how we get those amazing shots. So we decided to start hosting  lighting workshops and group shoot events. Our very first event turn out great! When we decided to do another event the following month we had photographers and models from around the world attend our events. Over the course of the years we had visitors from Hawaii, Germany, France, Czech Republic, Australia, and from many US states. We quickly became the #1 event in SoCal within 5-6 months where no other hosts could touch us. They tried to copy word for word what I wrote, lol. But they still failed to compete with us. I was given the nickname "Master of Light", lol.

1 on 1 photo shoots
Back in the days models were only making gas money at group shoot events. If they wanted to make more money they would have to sell model releases to the photographers. If the photographers were not interested then the models didn't make any more money.

So after brain storming for a while, i came up with an idea that made model more money. So instead of model's making $20 or so in gas money,my models were making $300 to $00+ at my events. If you've seen other group shoot events where they have 1 on 1 shoots where the photographer hires a model for, usually 30 minutes, I was the person that came up with that idea. Basically a photographer could hire you to shoot 1 on 1 so no other photographer could get the same shot.

Before i came up with the idea, I would see someone  post on Photographer's A profile saying that a Photographer B stole Photographer's A image and using on Photographer's B own profile. i would check out those photographer's images and see the same model with basically the same outfit and pose. But that was not the case. It was because they were shooting the same model at the same time, lol. That is too funny! I think that is why 1 on 1 became so popular. Photographers don't want to post the same images as other photographers, lol.

Quotes

"Karl was an absolute pleasure to work with. I have been modeling for 10 years and I can truly appreciate Karl's level of professionalism, patience and respectfulness of my comfort while shooting. Karl is super easy to work with and does a great job of guiding the shoot and poses while still letting the model be creative herself. Not only was our shoot awesome but Karl also got me published as a cover model for Models Mania Magazine! I am super grateful I had the opportunity to work with him. I look forward to collaborating again in the future." - Amanda Paris
