About Me

Working portrait and fashion photographer in Denver, CO! I am always looking for new clients and models. I will be travelling A LOT next year: Boston, DC, Detroit, Portland, Atlanta, Austin, Seattle, and your town.

Check out www.flickr.com/levismithphotography for lots more of what I do in all categories. Here are some photos that some of my models have chosen: http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/credited/3536489

I am not shy that I am a good photographer; I am a good trainer, and can give good feedback. I have photographed hundreds of people, and I know what works in this business and what makes an incredible model. I have gotten feedback that I'm a good coach and work to get a variety of amazing poses.

Here is a clue; it's not in the perfection of your body or the learned "intensity" in your eye, and it's not necessarily who's signed to agencies. I prefer people who look thoughtful, emotional, heroic, fragile, confident, or edgy. I prefer people who look like themselves. In regard to fashion shoots, I am willing to do FT work with make-up artists, hairstylists, designers, other photographers (I could always trade with someone to take each other's photos, that's when I learn the most about photography).

I also look for with a certain face that I can't describe. I love diversity in humanity most, but there is something special about a person who looks like they aren't trying, has a depth in the eyes that I'm looking for; it could be you're complicated, it could be you're interesting, it could be you're intelligent. I don't differentiate between my normal paid clients of any age and everyday people and those calling themselves "models." I scroll quickly through models and if I stop on you, it's something I can see from far away, whether zero or fifteen years experience.

I specialize in both the male and female forms, both of which are beautiful, intriguing, and diverse beyond belief. I love working with people of all figures, all colors, all personalities. I promise when you walk away, your legs will look fucking hot and your body will rock, but all of my models are real people, too. I look for someone uninhibited who wants to have fun but knows how to werq. I make people work hard emotionally, stretch out the different angles your body and face have, and give a set of images that shows off your diversity. I don't publish full nudes, but most of my work includes nude work. I find it to be a part of the process, as I have studied painting, drawing, and my artist/hippie upbringing also made me believe it was just a normal part of people's lives. I work with people to get the full range of beautiful headshots, artful and sexy nudes, boudoir, commercial work, studio shots, and magazine worthy high-fashion in one shoot.

I never don't have fun with a model and don't consider photography a lot of work. I bend down and squat trying to get the shot, so I have a model-ready butt, but I love what I do! What I find makes a fun image is one that includes the diverse backgrounds that make up our world, and emotional well-being from the model. You decide the parameters of what we do, but if you're ready to have a good time and create lots of images in a short amount of time, hit me up!

I can only work for trade with max 20 models for trade a year, and the rest of the time I do other photography work for-hire with clients. I am very selective, but again, as I said above, I can't always explain what makes you stand out. If I added you to my wish list, I see you! I need you to be real, because I don't use Photoshop!

I'll always be a wedding, family, lifestyle, portrait, boudoir, nude, pet, headshot, landscape, and abstract photographer, too. Working with professionals allows me to do the more fantastic, the more expensive, the more adventurous.

Feel free to contact me from anywhere in the US. If we are a fit, I'll come to you. If I have selected one of your photos under my "Model Wish List" album, I've already selected you to set something up for TFP; even if you are in another city, I can fly there. All other possible clients, my prices are reasonable for a portfolio update!

Bring it on!
