About Me

Located near Menomonie, WI / University of Wisconsin-Stout area.  You can see more of my photography and information about my photography at my website http://www.AMPStars.com - be sure to check it out.

I absolutely LOVE the creative aspects of photography, and I truly ENJOY working with fun, intelligent, and creative people.  I have worked with lots of AWESOME models, and I am very, very grateful for the wonderful opportunities we have to create memorable and dynamic images! 

RATES
I charge $50/hour for outdoor work and $100/hour indoor and location work.  Because I charge by the hour, you and your friends can split the expense and split the session time.  The fee includes web-sized proofs which you can edit and retouch yourself.  If you me to retouch the images, the fee is $20 for basic retouching (face only), $40 for advanced retouching (includes body), and $60-$80 for digital composite art (swapping out the background, etc.).  Retouched images include a COPYRIGHT RELEASE for you to make UNLIMITED numbers of prints in whatever sizes you wish. 



TFCD and TFP
If models wish to be MUSES for my fashion and fine art work, they can get shoots for free.  All models must be over age 18 with appropriate IDs and also sign a comprehensive modeling release. Hair, makeup, and outfits are provided for the shoots - so you don't need to spend any money in preparation for the session. Also I schedule shoot by phone; if you're not enthusiastic enough to give me your phone number, you're not enthusiastic enough to ask for a shoot.

Non-nude fashion-based shoots for models who have high-fashion-runway-ready bodies are TFCD (Trade For CD) and take place near Menomonie, WI.  Models receive copies of the unretouched digital proofs at the end of the shoot, and they receive a copyright release allowing the use and editing of the images by the model.  In TFCD shoots - I will be choosing all the looks and concepts for the session, and models choose their level of modesty.

Models willing to spend at least half of each session posing fully nude for my body paint, fine art, and glamour projects can earn TFP (Trade For Portfolio)  shoots.  For my fine art I accept women of all ages, races, shapes, sizes, and levels of scarring (to scars due to stretchmarks, accident, surgery, or self harm are all acceptable).  In TFP shoots - models get up to half the session to "Be The BOSS" -- choosing the outfits and concepts -- in exchange for spending the rest of the session posing fully nude for the rest of the session.  Models in TFP get a CD of unretouched digital proofs at the end of the shoot and then the opportunity to pick a series of poses for professional retouching (and can later pick up a DVD with high resolution versions of those images).  For shoots under 4 hours of camera time, models must travel to my location.  For full day shoots, I am willing to travel to up to 120 miles to the location of the models if they can provide suitable spaces in which to conduct the shoot.
