About Me


(Cover of Levitate Magazine, Model is Carolina Quick)


(Model: Janel)


(Wedding Shoot)

---Bio---

I have been immersed in photography for over a decade with a real love for nature/'scape and flower photos. My portraiture work came later - it's a work in progress. I believe that due to my background being nature and landscape, I try to work the environment and backgrounds into the pictures quite a lot.



I am a 40 year old married mother of two amazing sons, 12 and 14. I live in West Columbia, South Carolina. I enjoy shooting on location mostly, and really love trash the dress or interesting themes and ideas. I do headshots and such, but that's not really my "joy". Please have some interesting ideas when you come to me!

(Model: Morgan)

---Interests---

I am interested in most types of portraiture from classic and glamour/fashion shots to sexy/boudoir and retro pin-up, and I dabble in artistic nude and implied nude (ONLY female nudes).

I love venturing into the alternative scene such as goth/glam/punk. I would love to hear your ideas for innovative, creative and wild shoots! The crazier the better, let's take some risks! You can find anyone to do your normal, pretty, standard shoots....come to me for something unique!

---Contact Me---

I can be contacted via email, please message me for my email address.

I also regularly check my messages here. If you would like to talk to me via phone just message me for my number. I like texting, it works well with my schedule.

---Information---

I enjoy working with both new models as well as more experienced models, but I do not pay models to work with me. In most cases, I cannot provide gas money - if it's not worth the gas money to come see me, then you should probably look for another photographer. There are some people I do work for that WILL pay expenses though so if you need it, it doesn't hurt to ask. Worse that happens is I say no!

I expect you to be on time, or call me if you are going to be a little late. If you can't attend the shoot (for a good reason) please let me know ahead of time!

There are some shoots that I will ask for a modest payment, if the shoot will not benefit my portfolio, if it's for headshots/normal shots, etc for your portfolio (boring!), or anything to do with pageants. The shoot should be beneficial for BOTH our portfolios, and in that case I will do selective TFCD!

Please be professional, and on time! I do not reschedule shoots for flakers. I am an understanding person, but no one likes a flaker! There is no need to get that reputation when a quick phone call, text or even an email before the shoot will keep us all informed. FYI in case you aren't sure, a flaker is someone that reserves a time for a shoot and then doesn't show up and never communicates that they aren't coming. That wastes my time, and sometimes my money and gas for my car! It's been so bad I've gone out of town and had every model flake that weekend, no fun!

I am available in the Columbia-Midlands area of South Carolina, though travel to other areas of South Carolina can be arranged. I sometimes find myself in Myrtle Beach or Charleston throughout the year, and Charlotte NC is only an hour and a half from me.

I continue to build my portfolio and in trade will help you build yours.

TFCD TERMS: In exchange for your time, I will give you a CD of 30-50 "best" images within a month/month and a half of shooting. If I can't get it within a month I will let you know. I usually send teasers within a week.

**Model is responsible for basic makeup, hair & wardrobe unless discussed otherwise. **

(Model: Maharet Bloom)

I have several projects coming up as well as ideas for some shoots, if any interests you let me know-these would definitely fall under TFCD!:

---Projects and Ideas---

1. Unique Bridal Photos. I sometimes pick up wedding dresses at thrift stores, but if you have access to a bridal gown I would like some very interesting and unique poses with wedding dresses. Maybe even sexy, like this: http://druideye.deviantart.com/favourites/?offset=144#/d1gud1f

2. Trash the Dress. This can be wedding dresses, bridesmaid's dresses, some old formal or prom dress you have in the closet! I also regularly pick up dresses at the thrift store just for this purpose.

3. I want to do a fashion/glamour series with the theme of the seasons. This is basically Mother Nature in the seasons I want personified. I have an idea of what I want the hair and makeup to look like so if you're interested let me know.

a. "Summer Nymph" *****NEED
Seeking someone, tanned a plus, bikini, bright sunny makeup. Lots of green leaves, possibly a sunflower and other summer flowers.

b. "Autumn Nymph"  COMPLETED!
Date: July 28 - 6:00pm
Model: Gabrielle Crippin
MUA: Hazel Eyed Queen
Hair: Felicia

 
(Model: Gabrielle)

c. "Spring Nymph" ****NEED
Seeking a blonde or brunette who will allow us to tease her hair. Green or yellow, spring clothing style. Birds nest and bird, budding twigs, etc in the hair. Spring colored makeup. I definitely want to do the teased hair with this, very crazy messy.

d. "Winter Elf" COMPLETED
Model: Maharet Bloom


Manipulation by LadySelena

NOTE: just because one of the nymphs is taken doesn't mean I won't do multiples. I am especially interested in doing another winter with a different idea.

4. I am always looking to develop my pin-up photography both on location and in the studio. I would recommend studying pin-up poses and styles before coming to a pin-up inspired shoot, as it is very difficult at times to try and help a new model learn the 'right' poses, because pin-up posing is very definitive and must be practiced.

5. NUDE shoot. Need thigh-highs and heels, I would not be opposed to just being topless for this either, or even tights and topless. Color doesn't matter as it will be shot in black and white against a black backdrop. Want someone that will experiment with posing. Dancer a plus. Someone with a lot of charisma and knows how to move. I want to experiment with lighting with this.

6. Dark Urban fairy
Thinking of a dark urban fairy, torn stockings, ratty tattered wings, combat boots...etc.

7. Dark or Twisted Fairy Tale series -
- Little Red Riding Hood COMPLETED
- Cinderella
- Snow White
- Rapunzel
- Sleeping Beauty
- Frog Prince
- Rose Red
- Mermaid


(Models Broken Artist & Thomas Styron / Red Riding Hood)

8. Vintage anything. If you've got a vintage costume, clothing, anything... I'd love to shoot it.

9. A "let's see what we can find in a thrift store for $20" and then shoot in what we've bought either in the store, or somewhere else. I've also considered doing this with 2 models... giving each the cash and a time limit, then shooting both at the end!

10. Fairy Kei.... cute, pink, 80's.... if you aren't sure what this is, check these pics out: http://28.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lv3vun8HnO1r225gyo1_500.jpg  -- http://www.electricalice.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/leanne_1-e1299122361392.jpg -- http://www.electricalice.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/alana_2-e1299122640766.jpg

11. Literary Themes...Movies... bringing characters to life!
- Heathcliff and Catherine from Wuthering Heights****very interested in this
- twist on Dorian Gray - old portrait of woman, young woman holding it
- Shakespeare
- biblical woman (evil and good) like Jezebel, Lydia, Delilah, the one that danced for John the Baptist's head, Jael who kills a man with a tent stake, Jephthah's daughter - Sexy Dorothy and Toto


(Model is Lydia, portraying Ophelia from Hamlet)

12. COSTUMES!! It's Halloween and I always do some costume shoots in October. What costume do you have in mind?

13. NAUGHTY CHRISTMAS PIN UPS! Interested?

GOT SOME GREAT THEME IDEAS? Contact me! I love working with themes and interesting ideas. I like UNIQUE!



---Facebook---

You can find my fan page on Facebook under "Druideye Photography" - feel free to "like" the page and contact me there. I often post multiple photos from shoots there so you'll see a lot of different shots not posted here.

---Web Sites---

Please check out http://druideyeglam.daportfolio.com/ for examples of my classic, emotive and glamour photography.

For pin-up and artistic nudes, see examples at http://www.widdendreams.deviantart.com .

My business site is http://www.druideyephoto.com .

(You MUST bring a companion for any nude/partially nude photo shoots and please be aware I ONLY do artistic nudes, there is a fine line between art and porn and I have become adamant about not crossing that line. If you aren't sure of that line, note me and I'll let you know my standards. Companions always welcome for any shoot!)

Good luck to all of you and I hope to work with many of you in the near future! Seeking models, MUAs and Wardrobe/Fashion Designers.
