About Me

If you are the spouse or immediate family of Jim Karczewski and would like to have this profile hidden from view, please contact us and we will honor that request

PLEASE DO NOT CONTACT ME ABOUT TRAVEL TO MY AREA UNLESS YOU WANT MY SERVICES.  I'm NOT hiring models, I have enough on my plate so I'm only accepting paying clients or serious TFCD.  I'm willing to help serious models (new/advances) 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.
