Willing to help serious models further develop their portfolio. I will do whatever it takes to help you get the image you are looking for.
Quick note - If you are a model just starting out, don't expect me to pay you! I've had a few models with ZERO experience contact me to shoot and proceed to ask me what they were getting paid??? If you want to play that game, my rates are $250/hr for new models.
Also, I don't post a lot on here. I am busy with my personal photographic work and freelance work for The Chicago Tribune. So yes, I'm a real professional, I don't shoot models for "fun" or to "get models naked." Sorry, but there are so many people that have a camera and say they are a "professional" and nothing more than a creep with a camera. Due to that, I'm selective on what I put up and from time to time will upload one picture then a week later upload 10. Depends on what I'm liking that week and what I have time to upload. I'd be happy to email you a link to my most current work upon request.
Also, I don't know why it seems most photographer on here has some fascination with getting models naked or trying to jump in bed with them. I am not. I've been on here since 2005, never edited or deleted any of my comments, which you'll see I have no problem with working with anyone. I'm always leery of people that started shooting 6 months ago and have nothing but nudes in their profile, but hey, that's me.
