I still work for TFCD. The reason I hesitated to post here is because, while I like my work I haven't collected enough comments in my port to think that many others do... big_smile

edit: I guess technically I'm in the OC as well and not LA.

I do free test if I love the girl's look. I'm actually doin one today for a girl that contacted me through here and she was so stunning I was totally up for it.

If I don't feel like it would do anyhting for my own portfolio then I charge. But my rates are reasonable and flexible.

I'm a photographer who will trade with models when a] they'll show up (I've had a LOT of flakes from MM, including one just this morning) and b] we'll both benefit from the images. I love creating, and have some lighting tests I'm looking to do.

I occasionally do trades. Depends on schedules/time, the model, if we can both get killer images out of the endeavor, and a whole lot of other variables that have to line up...etc...etc..etc....

I'm certainly not the best..But I'm in Los Angeles... and I always have a sketchbook full of ideas that need to be translated to celluloid. Plus, there's good music on the ipod.

Sita--- love your avatar. If photographing naked people is your thing, by all means.... go for it. Its all about playing to your strengths right.

Any other models have any suggestions?
