Who is Wayne Stacy?

Mr. Stacy calls himself the "consummate vagabond". A former military man himself, he is third generation child of a family dedicated to military service, he has traveled the world as a military dependant and in his own service to his country. In total he is one of Eight generations of his family to serve his country, all the way back to the Civil War; Including his mother.

While born in California, he was raised primarily between Kentucky and Texas, and he has traveled all over his beloved United States. He calls Frankfort, Kentucky his home, where he lives with his wife (also a military veteran), their six dogs, and two cats. He has two sons, a grandson, and two granddaughters. Both of his sons are following in the family heritage of military service, and are on active duty in the U.S. Military.

Mr. Stacy has always been an artisan. He has been a sketch artist, and painter since before he could walk. A Master Electrician by trade, Mr. Stacy was injured on the job several years ago and could not use his hand for more than three years. His wife knowing he had studied photography in school and in the military purchased his first SLR for his birthday as a therapeutic tool and artistic release. A "Monster was unleashed" in Mr. Stacy, as his wife puts it. Little did she know she would be the catalyst for an insatiable passion.

In 2007 he entered his image "Cumberland Falls Bridge" into the Kentucky State Parks, photo essay competition and won. The next year that print was included in a collaborative coffee table book. Mr. Stacy is also a twice published poet, published photo journalist, and writer of short stories.

I am looking for a partner in a model, an actress who wants to explore all the facets of her imagination. A woman who at the drop of a hat will throw a bag in the SUV and travel to anywhere. Are you my muse?
Someone willing to get wet in a waterfall, who is willing to sweat in the desert sun, walk in the snow, stand in the middle of city traffic. Are you my muse?
Someone who wants to wear high fashion, or body paint...or nothing at all. Are you my muse?
Someone who understands that "fine art" photography is often a tireless, profitless, thankless form of the art; but is also the most artistic rewarding, and the most noticeable to those who truly love art. Are you my muse?
I don't know if we will ever make a dime off of that part of my vision, but we will share in it equally; equally in the work, and in the rewards. Are you my muse?
I am primarily a landscape and architecture photographer. While I hope to project my art in all forms of photography, I have not presented any "staged" portfolio shoots. I am one of the house photographers for the Louisville, Kentucky, Ballet Company; I formerly was the team photographer and videographer for high school basketball, and I have shot NCAA Division I football. I have done several product and album cover shoots for some up and coming artists as well. But I admittedly have no "model" experience.

What I do have is a thousand and one visions of scenarios and poses, and scenic beauty shots that bring together the strengths of my art with the desires of the models. I want to work with as many of you as I can, in all the scenes floating around in my head.

I am a husband (who loves his wife), a father (who loves his sons fighting for our country), and a grandfather (who loves every minute I have with them).

I am not here looking for a date, or a girlfriend. I am not a pervert looking to see all your "goodies". I want to build working relationships with women who want to
participate in shoots that are events, and adventures! I am looking for models who want to shoot everything. Some want to shoot nude, some don't. Some want to shoot implied, some don't. Some want to shoot high fashion, some don't. Everyone has their own boundaries and some...have none. I want to create ART with you all!
I am a nobody in the world of "modeling" photography.
I will trade prints for modeling services (If I do TFP the vision is MINE).
I will give you 100% of the "good" images from a shoot. If an image isn't good enough for me to use, it isn't good enough for me to give you. Neither of us will keep bad shots.
I will give you ROYALTY FREE ownership license to all images I shoot on a TFP.
I will hire out to the model for individual shoots (contact me for rates - I am VERY reasonable).
I will shoot nudes (though I prefer implied - I just think there is more beauty in implied work).
I will travel (if it is my vision, I will cover the costs. If it is your vision, you will cover the costs).

I will not work with any model who travels without a chaperone.
I will not work with any model under 18.
I will not shoot nudes with any model under 21.
I will not shoot weddings (do not even bother asking).
