About Me

"Photographically speaking, my 2 biggest passions are Fashion photography and Nature photography. When I combine the two, Magic Happens!" Victor Banta

Welcome and thank you for checking out my work!
The female form is beautiful. I enjoy working with models that inspire me. I am also a nature photographer and have published 2 nature and wildlife books. I love to shoot outside in nature, so photographing people in nature can be magical. I also own a photography studio in Hell, Michigan and enjoy creating stunning images their too.

Every shoot is a team effort, so I am always open to ideas and requests from the models I work with. I have considerable experience with new models and I would love to work with you to develop your portfolio. Our shoot will be fun, productive and without pressure.
I love to travel internationally for my photography and find beauty in many places. When shooting outside, I use the natural light and augment with reflectors and strobes as needed. If you have a special location you would like to be photographed at, we can explore that location as well.
BODY ART: I enjoy photographing models with tattoos and/or piercings. Body Art and photography are inspirational.

********** Travel Photography Opportunities **********
I am shooting continuously in Fort Myers, Florida and Michigan, and I am also available as a photographer worldwide.

Proof of Age: I will take a picture of your official picture ID at our first shoot for my records, before we begin shooting. I do not shoot with models under 18 years of age, without a guardian's permission.

Signed model release: I will ask you to sign my model release at the beginning of each shoot. I will not shoot without a signed release.

A Pre-Shoot Meeting: depending on the complexity of the photoshoot, a pre-photoshoot meeting might be helpful. If you are new to modeling or you just want to feel comfortable with me as a photographer, we can schedule a short meeting. These meetings are held in a safe, public place like Starbucks or Panera Bread.

ESCORTS: Escorts are no problem as long as the person is unobtrusive. If your escort is willing to help me with things like holding a reflector, I'll take advantage of the offer, but it is not a requirement. In my experience, husbands, boyfriends and parents do not make good escorts. Even the most experienced models very often get self conscious with them watching, but if they are your preference, I don't object.

NO nudes? NO problem! You set the limits, I respect them. I will not try to talk you into something you're not comfortable doing.

I am on time and ask the same consideration from you. Please be respectful of our busy schedules, if you must reschedule, please give 48 hours notice.

This has been really long but if you read this far, we should definitely explore working together and set up a shoot.

Every one of my images tells a story. I approach photo shoots with a creative journalistic style. I like to pull from aspects of your personality along with characteristics of the location, Wardrobe, and props to capture interesting images that tell your story or create your fantasy.

Feel free to drop by my Facebook Fan Page too see more of my photography and give me a LIKE.

Also, you are welcome to visit my web site

I am available for photo shoots worldwide. I will be in the Fort Myers Florida area yearly on and off, from September through May. As well as other locations throughout the year.

My rates are reasonable. Under certain circumstances I will trade photography for modeling. Feel free to contact me regardless.
Thank you for checking out my art and I look forward to hearing from you!
