About Me

NUDE PHOTOGRAPHER (no, not me... you)
Art - Fashion - Glam - Indoor - Outdoor -
Rural - Urban - Public - Fetish - Erotic

I think this Covid scare has made everyone a little crazier. I think the real fear of a potentially life-ending threat has made people more open to new ideas... I think the lockdowns are causing people to go a little stir-crazy and looking for thrill-seeking outlets for that energy in many ways - like modeling - besides cooking & fitness; which are great outlets, too.

Maybe, as a result of the Covid-19 scare, we'll experience another "Roaring 20s" phenomenon like people did a 100 years ago after World War I and the Spanish Flu pandemic! If we do it right, this could be fun!

Okay, back to our regularly scheduled programming:

I'm a Chicago Based Photographer
I've shot all over the world from Prague to Dubai to New Zealand, even Afghanistan.

Published in Maxim and FHM - not their websites or their million-model "vote for me!" contests, but printed and published in the actual hardcopy Magazines. I've pulled back from that rat race, though. "Publishing" in the digital age just doesn't mean what it used to when there were more barriers of entry into the analog field. I'm no longer pushing to get recognized. Playboy has collapsed, any model can now buy her way onto a Playboy cover. Besides, thousands of independent freelance art photographers are producing far better glam work than Playboy ever dreamed of. I'm no longer trying to monetize my art (and I do I hope you think at least some of my images qualify as "art"). Now, when I have the money, I'm just shooting local and travelling nude models as they come, simply for the sheer joy of seeing what we can create together and where a shoot takes us. I do pay models for their time, when I have the money to spare.

If you have a fully developed, artistic portfolio, my pay scale for full nudes/erotic/fetish, is below. Note: if you DON'T have a fully developed artistic portfolio, I will gladly help you develop one by adding marketable value to your work, in which case, these rates don't apply. That is definitely a fair trade since you'll be making a lot more money off of my time, talent, and experience than I ever will, at this point, from yours.

These rates are based on $20-bill increments.
(for sheer or see-thru lingerie/wet-t, subtract $20 from each hour):
$140 for the 1st hour
$100 for the 2nd hour
$80 for every hour after that

So for nudes it plays-out, as follows:
1 hour > $140
2 hours > $240
3 hours > $320
4 hours > $400
etc (I rarely shoot more than 3 hours, though)

I know you want to make your money when you come to town, but so does every other model who contacts me, and I get contacted by A LOT of models! Which is wonderful! I love all of you! But I have to be judicious with my selections. I pay quality artistic models for quality artistic collaborations. So put on your game face, get yourself photo-ready, and convince me I should shoot with you instead of them!

Which leads us to my favorite saying:
This work is a lot like Rocket Science.
Except there aren't any Rockets,
And you don't need any Science!

You do need passion & practice, though! Lots of passion & practice! EXPERIENCE!
You have to learn what works and what doesn't work. There's no substitute for experience, and you'll never acquire experience without trying, failing, and improving on your mistakes. Emulate greatness.

Another favorite saying:
You don't have to be weird to be an artist.

As the master of my medium, I reserve the artistic right to photoshop anything I choose in an image; in exactly the same manner painters and sculptors exert complete control over the manipulation of their art to evoke the mood or message that they're sending. I will remove distractions, create balance, and adjust tones, etc, to make an image look how I want it to (nothing unethical or objectionable, though).

Thank you for your interest.
- Matthew
