Here is what a couple of models have had to say about me:
Note: These were put here with the model's permission before MM started the new way of allowing us to create "credits" for people. Going forward, check that area, also.

"So Shoot Me! Photography is definitely my favorite to work with. Rick has a great eye for detail, and went far out of his way to make sure I was comfortable for the duration of the shoot. He has amazing drive, and vision, and I would recommend him to any model!" -- Madame Mao, #2645131

"I had so much fun shooting with you today. You are professional, yet a lot of fun. You have great ideas and are patient and helpful with posing. I look forward to working with you again real soon." -- Them Blue Eyes, #1962348

Let's Treat One Another with Courtesy and Respect
PLEASE note: If you aren't sure you want to shoot nudes, please do not contact me. I almost exclusively shoot nudes both for "regular" artistic nude photos, as well as for compositing. See my portfolio to see what I mean.

Also, I'm not sure when it became the norm to "forget" to properly credit the models, photographers, or make-up artists who helped create a photo.  But if you try to "Friend" me, when I check your portfolio and see the credits are missing, I will likely deny your request. I credit all models who work with me and have MM accounts. (I haven't figured out how to credit a model without an MM account, since it always deletes the names if there is no matching account to go with it.)

Whatever you do, don't be like this Never-Will-Be.

If you like the images you see in my portfolio, we might be able to shoot together.  Drop me a line and let's see. 

Direct contact: rick at RickHorowitz.Photography (note that is NOT a .com; it's a .Photography) or (559) 681-1888. (Note that I am a lawyer by day, so the voicemail message will probably refer to that. It's not a wrong number. wink

Newbies/Amateurs Welcome!
I will work with anyone who is serious about building a solid portfolio.  I'm VERY open to collaborative efforts if you have ideas for something specific you want to try. However, if you are asking me to shoot TFP (that is, for free), then keep in mind that I shoot primarily nudes. So if you're willing to pose nude for my portfolio, then I will shoot also non-nudes to help you build your portfolio.
***

If You Do Not Really Want to Shoot
Two major ways to ensure I will NOT shoot with you.  1) If I check your port and you aren't properly crediting those who helped with your images.  (I will also deny Friend requests for this reason.)  2)  I really don't get the whole "set-up-a-shoot-then-cancel-at-the-last-minute-or-just-don't-show-up" thing. Models, would you want me to do that to YOU?  Please have some simple courtesy.  I promise to respond in kind. I hope this doesn't sound "mean"—I'm anything but mean—I just want to try to limit the number of people who make appointments, and then flake out. I hope you understand.

"Rick was one of the most professional photographers I have worked with. He was communicative and friendly leading up to the shoot and in-session, and I was very comfortable and felt safe the entire time. I have only seen a few of the images, but so far, I am in love with the work, and I will definitely continue to shoot with this talented man." Read less
