About Me

I recently had someone tell me that the following made me sound "stuck up and hard to work with", [ which I am NOT! ], so while I am in the process of "re-wording" my "Bio", please take the following message with a "grain of salt" until I can figure out how to get the "real me" to come across in my words!   *THANKS!  smile

I have been "taking photos" since childhood, but I am NOT just a "GWC", and have been photographing people for about the last 15 years, so I consider myself at least a "semi professional" photographer!  I am interested in collaborations with others on MM!  I WORK CHEAP! ...and am very willing to work on a "TFCD" basis if it can help both of our portfolios!  I wish that I made so much money that I could give sessions away, but I am willing to "break even" in the right situation!  I have even been know to lose money on some shoots, so give me a shout and see what we can do for each other! 

I will be adding "some items" {a few at a time!} that I have "borrowed" from some other photog's here on MM!, that I have found very appropriate to this industry! ... so, please check back once in a while to check for any updates!!  Thanks! smile

I DO NOT mean for this to make me sound like a "Richard Cranium"!  I am a very nice guy (and will always do my best to be a "gentleman"!) that just wants to get better and better at the art of portrait photography, but since I work a night job (for just above minimum wage!), to pay for this "photo habit", I cannot go "bankrupt" to supply everyone with hundreds of free images either!  I really prefer to collaborate on shoots with models (TF), so if you want to "help each other out", please feel free to contact me! smile

To start with:

*  It seems rather obvious when people say that they "will travel if expenses are paid"!  No kidding!  If someone wants to pay my way to "Europe" to photograph them in "Paris", all I have to say is: "Where is my ticket, and when does the plane leave?" duh!

*  I also do not understand when someone {both models and photog's} posts the comment like: "IT IS AN OXYMORON TO WORK FOR FREE"!!  But doesn't that just mean that you do not think that you should work for free, but the other person should??  If you think you should get paid for "your work", then shouldn't I also get paid for "my work" too?  So then, if I pay you for your time, then you should pay me for my time ... oh, but wait, isn't that what that "TF" deal is kinda' all about??!  ...guess it must just be me sad
  {ps - I do understand that at my current "talent level", and if I want/need to shoot a "Playboy Quality Model", then I guess that I would expect to pay for a model that is that far above "My Pay Grade"!!}  wink  . . . but I also will not pay for a model just to do some "Head Shots" either!   *[I have tons of "Head Shots" already!]

* Nudes are NOT required!!

*  Due to getting "ripped off" by some "wanna-be models" lately, who got hundreds of free images, and then told me that I could not use their images anywhere!!, ... here are some new "policies" that I have implemented...they might not be "set in stone" for the right model, and to my past models that have treated me right!
     Along those "TFCD" lines:

          ~If YOU pay ME my FULL rates, then WE DO WHAT YOU WANT TO DO!  And you will have the option to pick from a selection of image "preview" methods that I offer!  I will probably require a "model release" and I will still retain all copyrights!

          ~If WE COLLABORATE on a shoot (TF), then we do HALF of what YOU want, and HALF of what I WANT!!  And you get a copy of the images on a CD!  If I require a "model release", then you will get a "photog release" too!, but I still retain all of the copyrights!!

          ~If I PAY YOU, then WE DO WHAT I WANT!!  And, you will be required to sign a "release", and you MIGHT get a copy of SOME of the images on a CD!!  I also retain all copyrights!!

*  A "Model Release" will be required in almost all instances!  It will be a "case by case" basis, and under most situations, you can acquire a "Photographer's Release" from me.

*  Escorts / Chaparones ...  I have NO problem with you having an Escort attend the photo shoot!  I may even put them to work helping be a "Sherpa"!  But, I would suggest bringing one of your "BFF's"... because? ... I have found from past experience that "boyfriends / hubbies / etc." might not make the best escort for those shoots that involve nudity.  Feel free to bring anyone that you want, but be aware that if your escort starts trying to "run the show", then the session will be over! *with NO refunds of any deposits, return of releases, etc...

... more later! ...

Thanks for taking time to check out my work....K
