About Me

NO OFFENCE INTENDED!! RETOUCHERS.
PLEASE STOP TAGGING  AND ASKING TO BE FRIENDS. I DO ALL MY OWN WORK. PLEASE STOP! DO NOT CONTACT ME. ATTENTION RETOUCHERS...READ THE ABOVE. IF YOU CONTINUE I WILL REPORT IT TO AN  ADMINISTRATOR.

NOT MANY PEOPLE WILL BOTHER TO READ THIS THRU TO END
I HOPE YOU DO...

We live but one life...!
Not everyone like's us...!
Our art is not always someone else's art...!
Not everyone agrees with our standards...!
Not everyone agrees with our morals and beliefs...!
But we do still have but one chance at life and it deserves our best...!


My energy as a photographer is to bring out your hidden you, or even to extend further the "hidden you". Together we can bring out your character, your emotions, your hidden inner being that really reveals the person you really are, as well as your outer beauty and passions.

We must push ourselves to our outermost limits to discover things about us that even we didn't know.
I WANT ALL MODELS SEEKING A PHOTOGRAPHER WHO CAN PROVIDE PROFESIONAL PHOTOS OF THEM FOR THEIR OWN PROMOTION TO HAVE THE FOLLOWING:
PASSION - SPIRIT - ENTHUSIASM - FACIAL EXPRESSION - A DANCING BODY - MOOD - EMOTION - AN ADVENTUROUS SPIRIT - DEDICATION - PRIDE IN YOUR APPEARANCE - JOY IN WHAT YOU DO. If you have these attributes you will be at your creative best .
THOSE THINGS COST YOU ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. THEY ARE THERE FOR THE GRABBING AND FREE FOR YOU TO PUT INTO PRACTICE WITH EVERY OUNCE OF ENERGY YOU HAVE. EVEN I HAVE THOSE AT MY AGE!

PEOPLE ONLY SEE what they want to see. They think Nude is all we photographers want models to model. BUT, they neglect to see all the other images and genres on the profile that are NOT FULL NUDE, if they did, then they would see not only NUDE model images. NUDE modelling is simply a part of the overall styles/“model genres” some photographers shoot. If you are unsure about shooting with photographers through fear because you think they only want to shoot you in your naked state. If you think that’s all photographers want to shoot, ask them for references, but don’t you dare back out if they ask you for references as well. Get off those sites you are on showing yourself as a model if you can’t take the heat as well as give it, it's that simple! If you are only there to boast, then you really are, as a general rule, going to be classed as that "Primadonna" type! God knows there are so many of them around. This sends out a clear message that you have no intention of shooting with anyone, but, you think you look good so your friends, peers, will believe you really are a model. Surely that's not true, is it???
It is easy to tell if your friends are taking snaps of you, or, you are taking selfies on a timer with your phone that you are putting on your profile. This may fool your friends you are a model, but seriously if you really want great images to put up, then honour your commitment and get with some of the photographers who answer your profile blurb. When you put up images it is best to put up great images, clear images, and not just 1, or 2, or 3. Upload at least 10 that are quality and show us your talent, ability, and genuineness. If you have only had some or even no experience. Put up an image or two in the styles you will pose for. Do not upload poor quality ones. You have "GOT TO LOOK YOUR VERY BEST" if you want to have other's hire you for some dollars. BUT REMEMBER, do not get greedy and ask for ridiculous rates. I see a lot of (not all) models asking for ridiculous rates, plus photos, and more these days, with only a few poor quality and posed images on their profile. Oh, and please do not do 6 or 10 or even 20 shoots and think you can class yourself as a professional model and start asking for stupidly ridiculous rates. Most of us are aware of models doing that. Be ready if you are genuine and be prepared to do a lengthy apprenticeship before self-classing as professional! C'mon... really! it takes a long time before you can ask ridiculous rates. Seriously, it does! And, you gotta be prepared to back it up. Not run away when photographer ask you for strong references as to your experience, looks and ability as a model.

MODEL states "work for payment only" - very experienced, or do you mean, cash payment PLUS you want photographs from your shoot as well? Perhaps you should clearly state this on your profile if you haven't already. Some seek a make-up and hair artist's as well as cash and photographs. REALLY...! TOP MODELS can ask for all this. So, are you all hoping, because you have a few shoots under your modelling belt, you are qualified enough to ask for all this, and perhaps more or am I maybe missing something here. If this is what you are after, then you had better tell us so by supplying all the references of your professional experience you state in your profile to substantiate your stated professional status in the modelling world, and, with images to help support your written experience. Let that speak for the sort of rates you want to charge. If you are receiving all the images from your shoots then your profile should be full of them. Even the "top" to "super models" do not receive all the professional images that are shot of them. Commercially they receive great remuneration and a hell of a lot of publicity for a company's product or service they are representing. These photographers receive excellent remuneration for their work and experience. The model gets paid, the photographer and all their staff get paid to shoot and set up the elaborate sets and equipment. Now that's fair.
I have shot a lot of models over the years and paid for a substantial number of them, but, how many of the images that I send to them (usually between 25 to 45,) do I see on their profiles. And, for how long? So, I pay them cash, and provide professionally produced images from their shoot, and they post maybe 1, or, if lucky, 2 images (sometimes not even 1) on their profile. THAT IS JUST RUDE!
How many times have you been able to get your photographer any business from your being paid to work with them? How much do you recommend them? How do they/we recuperate our expenditure? DO YOU REALLY THINK WE ARE MONEY TREES?
Then you ask your photographer not to sell any of your images! So, you do not even allow your photographer to recoup any monies he has invested in you the model, and, in the setting up of the shoot expenses. Then there is the wear and tear of the photographer's equipment and the time taken to prepare your shoot, and then, to do the shoot and prepare your photographs professionally after you have gone home with money and any other payment in cash or like decided between you, like maybe some brand-new clothing your photographer has paid for. Then hiring your make-up artist and hairdresser at times, if that is what you ask for. We are only there to shoot your sequence of images, then pay you in numerous ways and the poor old photographer can't even recoup any of their expenses! REALLY! REALLY!. HOW ABSOLUTELY SELFISH AND ONE WAY/UNFAIR IS THAT!
How about photographers taking and making images of and for YOU a two way street… How do you not see that this is a fair trading practice.
When I have a client ask me to shoot and use a model. I get paid for that, and, I pay the model. We both receive remuneration for the work and effort we put in.
When we offer a "model" a paid shoot, why is it wrong to allow your photographer to receive remuneration also? To recoup his/her losses? WHY?
