Recently resettled in London UK after leaving British Columbia, Canada.
Who am I?
I am a digital photographer (I made the switch from film in the early 2000's). I am seeking to rebuild my portfolio after taking a break since arriving in the UK. I am interested in forming a strong network and building working relationships with models, MUAs, stylists, designers, and other photographers.
Who are you?
If you are building a portfolio and are interested in TFCD (time for CD) work, then give me a shout. All models must bring photo ID and sign a standard model release prior to the shoot. All photos will be used solely for marketing and portfolio use by myself and you. I choose not to shoot with models under the age of 18 (or the age of consent wherever I am shooting), please respect this.
I understand the uneasiness many new models have of one-on-one shooting for the first time. While I do accept escorts, they must blend into the background and only aid in removing nervousness. An escort which is found to be a negative influence during the shoot will effectively terminate the shoot (however, I have never had this occur). If an escort is required, be selective with your escort (best friends are a good choice, as are friends in the industry).
What can you expect?
Selected edited images will be provided to the model on a CD no later than two weeks following the shoot (this may not be possible and will be discussed with those I shoot while I am travelling, for these I will set up an online dropbox to retrieve finished photos). I do all post processing myself- developing from a RAW image using Lightroom, Photoshop, and Nik Software for B&W shoots. I do not sell/provide original raw captures simply because retouching is as much a part of the work as the original image. I want to maintain only the highest standard of work and do not want someone attempting to retouch my photography. I will provide full size and web sized images in either JPEG or TIFF format (other finished formats can also be requested).
My shoots are creative and fun, they may last several hours and span over hundreds of images. However, only the best images will be used.
What do I expect?
No last minute cancellations please! You must be 100% sure you can make it to the shoot. The same goes for being late. Make sure you arrive on time or 5-10 minutes early. If you think you will be late for some reason, call me in advance. I am professional, polite, on time, prepared, and in the right frame of mind for each shoot. I expect you to be the same.
Please do not request extra edits free of charge, post processing requires a large amount of time. Depending on style, one photos post process is often longer than the shoot itself.
Can I (the model) have input?
Any photo shoot ideas are greatly welcomed. I look forward to meeting you and seeing what creative expressions we can create together. I prefer to allow models to share in the creation process. I am interested in trying new things; so if you have an idea for a project, let me know. You'll find me to be a flexible, fun photographer that's easy to work with.
We will schedule a time and day to work together and can come up with ideas collectively, and go from there. Though I am currently limited to what we might be able to try in studio, let me know your thoughts. I am very flexible with shooting, but weekends or weekdays after 5 pm work best for me. (this is of course for regular shoots, not necessarily when I am travelling).
What else am I open to?
I also welcome opportunities to work with, assist, collaborate with, and network with other photographers. I am always looking to collaborate with talented MUA/Hairstylists and especially designers.
Thanks for looking over my profile and I look forward to working with you.
