About Me

I have relocated to the fort Wayne Indiana area. However do not have a studio space yet. Winter 2022                                                        
Welcome to the MM page of Dan James,  I am currently accepting bookings for new talent but on a very limited basis. I desire to collaborate with Women and Men of all ages and experience to discover themselves and create art and memories. I have access to a few studios depending on the nature of the shoot, as well as many locations across Central Florida depending on the images you are looking for.

Please note, A lot of my work is not on MM. If you would like to collaborate, or add something to your port with a hint of my style, Feel free to reach out. I love working with new talent and can provide an extensive list of references. I get a lot of friend requests, and accept them all. But if you want to work together, please send more then just a Friend Request.

My Rates Per Hour or shoot are very reasonable (see below), all of my clients are very satisfied with their results, I can provide references with profile links.  I really enjoy helping newer/Aspiring models Build their portfolios and have a little fun. Average shoots may last anywhere from 60 Mins to 4 Hours depending on sets, location, makeup/bodypaint etc. All basic Hourly rates include Digital rights to retouched photos. An average 1 Hour shoot will yield 20-40+ fully edited photos for your collection.

Primarily willing to shoot trade for exceptional talent or projects in a location based setting within 1 hour of orlando FL.
Very limited Studio work depending on the project, maintaining a studio space, licensing software, and equipment all have costs, Just like maintaining a healthy body, wardrobe, and travel. I acknowledge this.

I welcome models of various experience levels, as long as they have an excellent work ethic.  I want models who; are on time and prepared for the photo shoot, respond to contacts in a timely manner and are willing to disclose any discrepancy(s) regarding her portfolio/profile and her actual appearance before the shoot.

The Key to a good Shoot is preparation.
• You are encouraged to bring an escort, but not required. (I can provide countless references)
• Need to sign a model release form (supplied by me in advance for review)
• Id or drivers license for proof of age. (Depending on shoot)
• Signed wavier by parents, and a guardian present (If under 18)
• Makeup & Hair Kit (If desired)
• Multiple Changes of Clothes (more outfits can lead to more sets)
• Last but not least a positive and creative attitude!

MODEL ESCORTS: Escorts are no problem as long as the person is unobtrusive.      Even the most experienced models can often get self conscious with husbands or boyfriends watching watching, but if they are your preference, I don't object. For studio shoots I provide aseating in the shooting area for escorts. But please, I have had models bring car loads of their friends with cell phones and distractions. I ask you limit additional guests to 1  unless they are contributing directly to the shoot (HMA)

Nude/ implied Images: Model must be over the age of 18 with proper age documentation. Nude images will not be posted publicly and models will not be tagged on MM unless by request.

Model Privacy: I will not give out the model's Contact information. If you wish to get in touch with a model I will forward your request directly, but not give out any of my amazing models contact information.

A Note on Compensation:
Basic Packages and Pricing are available for studio sessions, Studio Shoots are not For Trade unless you bring a very unique concept, skill, look, or talent.


Paid Models / Traveling Talent:
At this time due to growing my business and reinvesting in newer studio equipment I will not be working with paid models. I may offer paid castings occasionally, you can feel free to send a message and say hi if you have interest in the tactical pinup series ive been continuing. No disrespect is intended, the investment to maintain a studio space, software, and equipment is to a photographer, as wardrobe, makeup, and posing time is to a model.  Both create art, both have bills, and both when established and skillful do require compensation for their work.

Gina Miyoko- 3098150 "From the first contact to post-processing, Dan was creatively involved and enthusiastic about the shoot.  Even on vacation, he was professional and adventurous, running around a lake and falling into a sinkhole just to find the exact spot from which the picture needed to be seen.  We laughed a lot while getting the job done well.  I would certainly work with him again given the opportunity and highly recommend Dan James Photography to anyone brave enough to take the road not yet traveled."
