About MeI have received many comments in my port about how a shot should be the "cover of a magazine" or how beautiful the model looked. The Artist/ Photographer "breathes life" into the image.
It is all about the capture of that moment, forever holding a moment in time.
"TO CAPTURE THE UNIQUENESS OF EACH WOMAN AND TO MAKE HER FEEL BEAUTIFUL....." This is the reason I pick up the camera each day. Respect for women, shooting them in a tasteful manner that enhances their features and assets, not in a crude degrading fashion. Every model views themself differently from how the rest of us see them. My best compliments come from models that say "This is my favorite shot and you took it!"
Some photographers start with models nude for the first shot. I have always believed in tastefully leaving some elements to the imagination. Oh yes, I still photograph the entire female nude anatomy, but I am a firm believer that a 'hint of suggestion' or creatively 'cropping' can be far more alluring. All of the beautiful women, that I have been fortunate to shoot with, each have a spirit waiting to be released. Each model is different...I highlight their beauty and showcase it.
So you want to know the real me. Ok, I'm Mark Pippen, I and live and do photography in Virgin Islands. I lived all over the world, but I have spent most of my time in Texas, Y'all. I polished my photography skills in college while studing Architectural Design. This is where I learned the 'critical use' of LIGHTING and SHADOWS. Yes, I was the student taking pictures of buildings and landscapes. So for a photo class assignment, in topographic maps, we did a topographical study of a classmate's girlfriends body. The class was ecstatic, the Dean of Men was not. Luckily, I have moved on from buildings to photographs featuring beautiful woman...HAHA. Seriously for the past few years my shots feature beautiful models surrounded by Caribbean Architecture, Sunsets, Landscapes and Accents.
Everyday I see models with great potential but they lack the portfolio images to showcase their beauty. Without great images, a client may never give you that first chance.
"No one is completely useless..They can always be used as a bad example."
The competition is high for models and your images are your first impression. Have you ever wondered why some models are so busy and why others sit home? Fact is the models who are the busiest have great images that capture their beauty. One GREAT shot can give you bookings for a career. Several great shots will leave them speechless.
One fact about me is this: I only want to work with models who are SERIOUS about SHOOTING ! As you can see by my images I am SERIOUS about SHOOTING and capturing the beauty and essense of each model! I also like to have FUN in creating the shots! So if you enjoy modeling as much as I enjoy photography then we can create some special images together.
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING CAREFULLY:
If you are interested in working with me my rates to shoot are very fair considering the high level of images you will receive from our shoot. The images I create make the models I work with $$$$. It is fact. More bookings, more contest wins, more prize money, more paid photo shoots.
Anything in life worth having has a price associated with it. There is no such thing as FREE when it comes to getting great images that will make "YOU", the model money. The correct images will bring "YOU" career success long after our photo shoot is over. Pride and effort to get great images becomes paramount when money is exchanged. Great images drive me, money does not, but it does add to it's credibility. The model will continually benefit far more from the images than I do. I am very affordable but will not shoot TFCD. There are exceptions but not many.
For all shoots I will provide you with a CD of our photo shoot in less than one week. I will also provide a "minimum" of 10 edited images emailed to you within 3 days (yes you heard me 3 days) for personal promotion and web use.
My images make the models I work with money through an increase in bookings and that relates to $$$. The cost of the shoot is far exceeded by the amount of bookings you will get from our collaboration....and that is a FACT !
Shooting Philosophy: I look to shoot very glamorous images that show a woman's sensuality. I think the imagination is very creative but images should still be tastefull. I enjoy looking through a fashion magazine displaying photos that are tasteful and respectful to a woman's beauty. The photos capture a glamorous set of curves, beautiful flowing lines and image defining hair. I hope to always make images that appeal to all the viewer's senses. My photos will highlight the Sensual, Sexy, Hint of Seduction that makes a image pop. These images should leave the model and viewer with that warm smile. Whether it be in a business suit, lingerie, beach sunset, water reflection or anywhere in between my goal is to make beautiful images that the model is proud to display.
