About MeABOUT ME
My name is Tristan and I'm a Townsville based photographer and retoucher, with 6 years experience in paid photography and retouching. No longer shooting professionally though still love the odd project if it is with fun people or for a concept I'm inspired by. For the last 4 years I've mainly been shooting swimwear and lingerie for profiles, catalogues, boudoir and glamour projects. Prior to that was shooting mainly maternity and weddings. I believe photography should be all about having fun to produce amazing images. If anyone involved doesn't really want to be there then, whats the point!
All the photos featured in my portfolio are of first time models or non models encouraged and guided to pleasing poses and successful shoots.
TFCD photographic shoots to Townsville and Cairns based models for the purpose of keeping my eye in and just having a bit of fun doing what we are all passionate about - producing captivating, or scintillating photos. I'm not interested in paid work anymore, if you or your project is inspiring enough to convince me to shoot for free then I'm happy to do it, if it's so boring I'd want t be paid then I'm not interested anymore. The one exception to this would be aspiring beginners. Your first few shoots can often be awkward and difficult but if you've got a relaxed and fun attitude about it and are happy to leave the "I'm too good for this attitude" at home then I'm willing to collaborate to come up with cool, enjoyable ideas to boost your portfolio. The main idea is to have some fun capturing you so just relax, ask as many questions as you'd like and enjoy being the centre of attention.
Happy to shoot in any style or theme you prefer as long as it's something interesting, if your not an ideas person but would like to collaborate then feel free to communicate that and we work out a style that will be both fun and suit your personality. If you have a crazy idea/theme I'm willing to work with you to try and capture the images you desire.
FIRST SHOOT POLICY
I prefer meeting models before the shoot to organise the details and also to get an idea of your personality so we can incorporate that into our images and so I can gauge whether your going to be fun and relaxed or annoying and stressy. I also find if we meet beforehand you're more relaxed during the shoot and that shows up as better images.
To get out and have some fun shooting beautiful pictures of fun and interesting people.
To work on crazy creative themes that will stretch my creative and technical ability.
To not get rusty now that I'm not pursuing photography full time.
Escorts are welcome to come along to an initial meeting however as they get bored and impatient they are discouraged from attending the shoot. If after meeting you are still uncomfortable attending a shoot without an escort (then its probably not going to be a fun shoot and we should just forget it, lol) you need to let me know prior to the shoot as unannounced extras will be asked to leave. My partner (and regular model) will often accompany me on shoots as she is great at helping beginning models get their poses nailed just right. If that makes you uncomfortable let me know and I can leave her at home.... though I may then ask you to carry some of the gear and props, lol.
NOTE FOR PHOTOGRAPHERS
Lastly if you are a far Nth Queensland based photographer wanting to collaborate on a cool project just let me know, although same goes in the pay department, happy to help on a project that is a labour of love, not so much to help you earn your $ where your going to be stressing about shit. Photography is moving towards just being a hobby for me so I'm keen to avoid your stress as much as my own, hobbies (and photo sessions in general) are meant to be fun!
