About Me

My name is DH Cogdill, I am a 29 year old photographer I also do this on the side http://youtu.be/8YkDppqaQTE if youd like to make some side money while you chase your dream message me about it and we can do it together!!! I have been involved in Photography for over ten years, and have worked as a photographer for seven years. I have worked with a diverse group of people, from unknowns to celebrity.

I'm proud to say that I've trained with my mother who has 30 plus years of experience in photography, I have also trained with several world renound wedding photographers. I finally chose to branch out from doing exclusively weddings to include modeling portfoilos, landscape, art and everything in between.

My theory on creating a portfolio is that it should reflect what you want you future in modeling to be... if you want to be a high end fashion model then we need to arcitect a port folio that shows you sporting several different styles and poses. If you want to be a hood ornament in car magazines then you need to have lots of partial nude and swimsut photos in you port. If you are looking at doing a future in acting then you need a port folio that focuses on your diversity in expressions.
I tailor your portfolio based on your future goals.
I love to be critiqued, and given constructive criticism.
As a Photographer, I have no limits when taking photos and I have done and continue to do photo work in these areas:

• Editorial
• Fashion
• Glamour
• Landscape
• Nudes
• Runway
• Sports
• Weddings
• Intimate Couples
• Advertising
• Commercial
• Etc.

If you limit yourself you won't be able to enjoy the diversity of all that the world of photography/modeling has to offer. Those who get stuck into one area, quickly find themselves in a rut. Remember: Mediocrity is excellent to the eyes of mediocre people.

IMPORTANT NOTE:


If you are planning to use an agency in the future then you do not need a photographer to put together and entire portfolio for you however, it may be worthwhile approaching agencies with snapshot headshots and bodyshots. This is true no matter who the photographer is or what they tell you. If you go into an agency they will recomend a photographer)


I work with state-of-the-art equipment from Nikon. I also use the latest technology on software and hardware when processing your pictures.


BASIC POLICIES:

I don't do drugs, smoke, drink, and I do not support those who do in a work atmoshpere. My environment is a vices free and if you want to work with me, please be respectful and professional.

Booking:
Before any session, I require a phone call and that we set up a meeting to discuss your project. I by no means schedule people by e-mail only. This is to prevent that any possible ghost or aœfake customer wastes my time. In the case where you live in another state, I will waive the meeting with a phone conference. Remember to provide real contact information.

Escorts:
If you are a minor, please be aware that you need to bring an adult (parent/guardian) with an ID for both yours and my own peace of mind.
If you are an adult, feel free to bring someone else though it is not required. You will also need to bring a valid ID. In the case that you do bring someone, that person must not disturb the session. Any disruption the session will lead to the immediate cancellation of the photo session.

Cellular phones:
Please be aware that you need to turn off your cellular phone when working with me. I won’t tolerate any kind of interruptions when shooting. We’ll have several breaks and you will be able to check your cell phone during those breaks.


Cancellations:
If by any chance you cannot make it for any reason, please call me or e-mail me within 48 hours.
If you are scheduled to work with me, and you don't call to cancel the session, and don't show up, you won't be considered for any possible re-schedule. AND THERE WILL BE NO REFUND. If there is an unexpected emergency, we can work towards rescheduling. But again, if you are not serious and you just don't care, I won't care either, its your dream we are building. Please try to keep in mind to make a 5 minute phone call and let me know that you need to cancel.

Model signature release:
Before working with me, please be aware of getting your model release form signed by yourself or your guardian. It will be provided to you when we meed for our consultation. Failing to bring this release form already signed, will just cause delay on our session and there will be a $5 replacement fee for a new form. So, please bring your signed model release form when scheduled.

MY RATES ARE VERY REASONABLE. I HAVE SPECIALS RUNNING DUE TO THE ECONOMY STATUS. BE SURE TO ASK ME ABOUT THEM I'M OPEN TO COLLABORATE AS A TEAM WITH EXPERIENCED MUA'S, HAIRSTYLISTS, AND WARDROBE STYLISTS.


I will always work closely with you till we get the image(s) you want till you are completely happy and satisfied with the result.

Pictures delivery:
Pictures will be delivered in a reasonable and timely manner. Normally between 1-2 weeks after the session depending on the length of the session and the quantity of the photos.
In order to deliver your pictures, there are several ways to handle this.
• I can send you your CD with your pictures by US mail.
• I can upload all your pictures in a file over a free storage server where you will be able to download your pictures.


Feel free to choose the method that works best for you.
