How We Work TF*'s

Please understand our work is very important to us and we provide top notch quality work. After the shoot is over, we typically spend allot of time, energy and effort in front of the computer editing & post processing images. We generally do not provide any unedited images - most times we will only provide 3-5 finished high res. images per look.

*** If you are looking for top quality work instead of a whole cd of unedited pics, let me know and we can talk about what we can achieve working together.

*** Escorts - No Romantic Partners Will Be Allowed. ***

Your photo shoot will be between you and us. You may bring ONE Escort. This is not a LIVE Show. No one is allowed to video or photography anything but our photographer during the session. No one is allowed in the studio area with flash photography or video equipment, It is also very difficult for Rick to concentrate and give you his all if he is distracted and having to work around someone else. We can arrange for a professional video of your session if you would like, and provide it to you at an additional charge.

Your friend is welcome to be in our shooting area with us, or in our waiting room enjoying a DVD, listening to her / his favorite music. Sorry, no one is allowed to enter or exit during the actual Photo Shoot.

No Alcohol is to be consumed during the actual shoot or around the shoot !
Insurance Policy Terms prohibit us from providing our service to anyone who is under the influence of alcohol or drugs. We are a drug free environment, and the rules apply to everyone here or that comes with you to the shoot.

TF* are meant for a model to build their port, not for experienced models to take advantage of a photographer for free work. We are always willing to help, but please understand we are professionals too.

*** I, Do Not accept TF* work with anyone under the age of 18 without parent or legal guardian written permission. This means, the legal guardian must sign our Model Release in front of us ! We do not allow under age models to take a Model Releases and have it signed without us being present !

*** Under No Circumstance ***
Are any TF* Images to have the photographers Watermark Removed !
Model Copyright Release and Commercial Copyright Release
are available at a nominal fee.

NO TF* Images are to be used on any Pay to View Site.


All Models must have a valid State or Federal Photo ID on site at the time of photo shoot.

FYI, I DO NOT reschedule no-shows and/or last minute cancellations under any circumstances. If you miss the shoot for any reason, you are out of luck. If you don't plan to make the shoot, please don't schedule in the first place.

Basic preparations are essential for getting good pictures or a great look. I will do my very best to get the best out of a shoot and most of our shoots have taken very long time to plan, so don’t show up all hung-over or looking like a mess.

Preparing For a Photo Session, 1) Gathering everything you need in advance of the photo shoot. Running around at the last minute will stress you out and you will not be mentally prepared. 2) Let me know if you wish to use a makeup artist. I have a network of professionals who can be hired for the shoot. Just let me know so we can plan accordingly. 3) Get a good night sleep and be ready for your shoot. We want to help you produce the best photo we can. We need your help to produce the best photos we can.
