Hey Gary. Thanks for reaching out to me for a shoot! I will have to decline however. Thanks for the opportunity though and I wish you the best of luck on your model search!
-Sant

Now THAT'S how to respond to a model request - with courtesy and class.

A CHRONOLOGY OF 25 YEARS OF MALE FIGURE PHOTOGRAPHY.

MODELS: PLEASE READ THIS!

I shoot male nudes.  That's what I do.  Just look at my portfolio.  I will shoot lifestyle, fashion and portraits on a paid basis or in exchange for TF.  On rare occasions I will shoot "Implied", if it is agreed to up front and I see a good reason for it.

For me a shoot is a commitment, one I take seriously, and it involves planning, equipment, space and time.  It also involves my talent and vision, before, during and after a shoot. 

If you consent to a nude shoot and sign an unrestricted release, be sure you know what you are doing.  If you require any sort of restrictions - "implied", "no frontal", " no face", etc., please state that BEFORE the shoot is scheduled, so that I may have the opportunity to decide whether or not I want to do it.

I WILL CONSIDER LIMITED TF IF YOUR LOOK COMPLEMENTS MY WORK; OTHERWISE MY RATES ARE QUITE REASONABLE. A MODEL RELEASE IS REQUIRED FOR ALL TF WORK. I NEVER RELEASE UNEDITED IMAGES, PAID OR OTHERWISE. PLEASE DON'T ASK.

ALL my "Friends" have made some contact with me by TAG, COMMENT or MESSAGE before being accepted.  They are all either models I would work with/have worked with or photographers I respect, SO PLEASE CONTACT ME BEFORE MAKING A FRIEND REQUEST. BLIND REQUESTS WILL BE DELETED.

THIS IS NOT FACEBOOK.  I ALREADY HAVE ENOUGH FRIENDS. ;-)

I appreciate critiques, but can do without comments such as "Hot!" and "Nice".  If you like an image, please tell me why.  If you don't, likewise.  I'll try to do the same for you.

"It was a pleasure working with Gary who made me feel very comfortable and at ease, with great conversation. He really knows what he is looking for; he gave clear direction and had obviously planned carefully for the shoot. He managed to use a very limited space and difficult lighting to fantastic effect."
