About Me

Hi, and thanks for stopping by and having a look at my profile and port.

UPDATE: I am currently looking for models who are interested in having their images submitted to magazines for publication / tear sheets. Models who are interested in shooting with this intent will get my top priority. Please contact me as soon as possible.

About Me: My name is Frederick Kisby. I'm a very experienced, published photographer working from my studio in Northfield, NJ, and on location in the Jersey Shore area. Let me start with the most important things, I'm here because I have a passion for making art through digital images. To me, it's all about the art. Nothing more, nothing less. I'm happily married, and I intend to keep it that way. I am not doing photography to meet girls or sneak-a-peek. I take my photography very seriously. I've owned and shot SLR cameras longer than most of you have been on this earth. I started shooting 35mm film in 1979, including wet darkroom work in Color and B&W. Now in the digital age, I enjoy shooting and retouching more than ever. I am easy going, have a great sense of humor and am fun to work with (ask anyone who has shot with me). I consider myself to be one of the best glamour/portrait photographers in Southern New Jersey.

I currently specialize in fashion, glamour, portraits, pin-up, boudoir, beach portraits and portfolio building for aspiring models.

Creative Vision: I consider myself an Artist as well as a photographer, I love the use of colors and shadows, If I repeat the same shot or set-up twice, I try adding a twist to it, I am always looking for new challenges and ideas, I like doing unique & edgy shots and I think every woman has a certain beauty that can be captured and I like run-on sentences.

Paid Shoots: I can do all types of photography including; Weddings, Birthdays, Bands, Parties, Proms, Head Shots, Model Portfolios, etc. I have a Model Portfolio Package for $225. for 10 fully retouched images, presented to you on a CD with a release for prints. I will custom design a shoot to YOUR needs, and fill any voids in your portfolio. My rates can be negotiable based my desire to add your concept to my portfolio. Please feel free to contact me for a quote based on your concept.

TF* (Trade for Digital Images): Just like everyone else, paid shoots take priority over TF Shoots. I only do TF Shoots with experienced models or new models that I feel have a great look, feel free to ask though. My new minimum Limit for TF Shoots is something with a "Wow" factor; any GWC (Guy With Camera) can shoot some photos of you at the local park in a T-shirt and jeans, that is not what I am looking to create, unless you are paying me and then you can wear whatever you like. That is what I am expecting to shoot, if this is a problem, please let me know ahead of time.

If you need references, feel free to contact any on the models in my portfolio. The links to their pages are in their photo credits. Ask them whatever you need to in order to satisfy yourself that I provide an outstanding product, in a timely manner, and in a safe and comfortable environment.

My TF* Shoots: After we shoot, you will receive approx. 2-3 completely retouched digital images, in web resolution, for every 45 minutes of shoot time. Retouched images are delivered to you via email, usually within a week. I do not release all of the images from the shoot, and I do not release unretouched images. Prints are available for a small fee. Prints cost me money, therefore they will cost you money.

A pre-shoot meeting and a model release will be required. Photo ID showing proof of age is also required, and will be photographed or photocopied. Escorts are welcome, however if in studio, they are also required to bring photo ID that will be photocopied. This is to deter theft.

New to Modeling (Part #1): It can be pretty overwhelming, getting messages from Fifty-plus Photographers that all want to Shoot with you. How can you tell the real Photographers from the GWC's (Guy With Camera's)? Simply look at their photos; Do they look like what you would like to put in your Portfolio? Are the model's eyes well lit and in focus? Are the images magazine worthy? Do they look like they were taken at a local park? Do they use Wal-Mart bed sheets for their backdrops? If they shoot indoors, how does the lighting look? Do they rework (retouch) their photos? If their photos look bad, so will yours, if you shoot with them. TF shoots are a great way to get experience in front of a camera, but remember the old saying "You get what you pay for".

New to Modeling (Part #2): I am reasonably sure you are hoping to make some money doing modeling. If so, you want the VERY BEST photos in your Portfolio. You want people to look at those Photos and WANT to hire you. This is not Facebook; you don't need any lame cell phone pics of you in the bathroom mirror! The best way to get great Photos is to PAY a decent photographer, I would recommend doing this AFTER you have some experience doing TF Shoots, that way you will not have that Deer-in-the-headlights look.

New to Modeling (Part #3): Before shooting with anyone, try to contact some models who have worked with them before. Ask questions about work ethics and ask the model questions such as "Did the photographer make you feel creepy?", "Did he stare at your chest?", "Did he take 150 shots of their feet?", Did he ask to rub oil on them for the shoot? Then I would AVOID these guys. Also make sure someone always knows where you are and who you will be shooting with! Do your homework and you will not need a escort (see next).

Escorts: Probably the most controversial topic for some, I have no problems with escorts; I have had many more pleasant experiences than negative ones. Most of the time I do not even bring it up, but if you plan to bring your overprotective father, who hates the idea of you modeling and hates men looking at you, or your 3-year-old who suffers greatly from separation anxiety, or your ex-con boyfriend who is out on bail for burglary, PLEASE let me know up front so we can discuss it.

Paid Shoots Only / Experienced Models: Many of you do only paid shoots and I fully respect that, you should be paid and paid as much as you can get. Typically I would not approach models with "Paid Shoots Only" unless I really like their look or feel that I can offer them something that is NOT currently in their portfolio, so if you like my style or have some of your own ideas that you would like to explore on a TF basis. let's talk! If not, no problem, we can still be friends and I wish you much success, and if I get a paid shoot through a client, I may contact you.
