About MeThanks for taking a look at my profile. I have been a serious amateur photographer for many years. I am passionate about photography, and I’m always striving to improve my skills as an artist. I'm principally a natural light photographer. I shoot mainly outdoors, or indoors using only natural light. Personally, I don’t like the way flash makes people look. We all have different tastes.
My goal is to continually grow as a photographer. I do occasionally dabble in other photographic genres, but, my passion is photographing people. I'm especially interested in portrait photography, street photography, and in a concept called, "the simple nude." Simple nudes are simply tasteful nudes that emphasize the beauty of the model, and nothing more. The style is best exemplified in the photography displayed on the website, DOMAI.com.
I am always looking for beginning, and newer, models for TF* shoots. Experienced models willing to do trade shoots are always welcome too, of course. I love to shoot, and I would do it all day, every day, if I could afford to do that. I am constantly trying to get more variety in my portfolio. You will find the majority of my work on my 500px page (link above), and my Flickr page (family friendly stuff). These sites allow more photos to be posted on their free accounts.
I have a very laid back style of shooting, and I'm very easy to work with. I don't do a lot of directing, unless that's what the model wants. I am very reliable, and completely trustworthy. If you have any questions about me as a person, or as a photographer, please feel free to message any of the MM models I've worked with in the past. You'll find their names in the credits list below.
I will work with underage models as well. However, I will require a parent or guardian to be present at any meetings we set up to prepare for the shoot, and at the photo shoot itself. I will not be alone with an underage model. And, I will require that the parent or guardian sign a model release form so I can use the photos in my portfolio.
I'm not just looking for "runway models" to photograph. I'm looking for models of all ages, and all body types. Real women usually have curves, and I appreciate all women regardless of body type. Humans aren't perfect. We all have flaws. Our “flaws” are what makes each of us special, and unique. I would love to get some more “mature” models to photograph as well. They can be really hard to find. I do this for fun, and not for profit. So, let's set up a shoot, and have some fun together creating art.
I realize that models typically expect to be paid for posing for anything involving any level of nudity. And, I completely understand that. Modeling is hard, and nude modeling is especially difficult. Plus, it is your body that you are putting on display, and models have every right to be paid for nude work. And, you're all worth every penny that you charge. Thank you all for being there for us photographers.
I have paid many nude models in the past, and a few of their photos are displayed here in my (very limited) port. But, unfortunately, my financial situation has changed dramatically, and I can no longer afford to do that. So, if you are just starting out, or you're an exhibitionist, or you're just feeling really generous today, and you would like to do a trade shoot that involves implied, partial, or total nudity, please send me a message. I would love to work with you to create some quality photos that show off the incredible beauty of the female form. And, again, I'm looking for all ages (18+ of course) and body types for tasteful nude photography.
So, if you are a model willing to do trade work, send me a message. I look forward to hearing from you. Thanks for reading. Life is short. Live life to the fullest every single day. Or, as Thoreau put it, "Live deliberately."
