OBJECTIVE:

TO HAVE A GREAT TIME COMING UP WITH PUBLISHABLE QUALITY IMAGES OF BEAUTIFUL MODELS IN DRAMATIC LOCATIONS, TO GENERATE STOCK IMAGES AND WORK ON PERSONAL PROJECTS.

Photography is more than just a job, it's an avocation. I hope my images reflect that.

I've been doing this for a very long time, handling news/feature assignments and covering travel, the arts, sports and recreational activities and fashion, among other specialties, in more than 40 countries in various parts of the world for daily newspapers, national magazines.and a wide range of specialty publications.

I've written several books on photography and my work has been carried by some of the top photo magazines in the country. I've also had a couple of gallery shows.

As part of my fashion coverage and model photography, I've shot countless runway shows (don't shoot them anymore) and have done a considerable amount of studio work, but I prefer working on location.

At this point, I'm primarily concentrating on personal projects and generating images for my stock library. Some of my projects and stock photography involves models, some of it doesn't.

Because of the various projects I'm involved in, I don't have as much time to work with models that I would like, but I'm still always looking for new modeling talent.

I'm generally pretty good at coming up with the models that I need on a trade basis, but there are times when I do paid shoots.

I only do paid shoots with models that I've met, either at some industry event, a social situation or a preshoot meeting. (I understand the need to make a living, and I've had some great paid shoots, but some of the most boring and least productive shoots that I've done have been with models that are in it simply for the money.)

I've taught modeling (and photography), so a positive attitude and dependability are more important than experience.

I'm also looking for new and interesting locations. (Most paid shoots that I do are with models that have a suitable location available.)

Take a look at some of the Tags and Comments that models have left me. That will give you a good idea of how my shoots go.

Also, take a look at my work. If you like my style and you're interested in working together, read on and lets talk.

============================================================


WORKING TOGETHER

Most shoots start with a meeting, or at least a phone call.

A Model Release, with a photo ID, is required for all shoots.

For trade shoots I'll provide 25 to 30 optimized images per session, which usually lasts about 90 minutes. I never provide all images from any shoot, and I generally don't provide any images on paid shoots.

Images are copyrighted. They MAY NOT be reoptimized or otherwise modified. I don't put any watermarks in them, but I do sometimes add a small photo ID/copyright notice.

Provided images may be used for any purpose the model might want, including online, editorial and commercial purposes, All that's required is proper photo credit. (I can provide a full Use Release  if requested.)

If we shoot, you can bring a girl friend if you want. DO NOT bring any groups of friends or relatives; boyfriends, husbands, professional-type “escorts/drivers”; so-called "model managers" or pets.

I generally don't schedule models that have another shoot scheduled the same day, (either before or after).

I'm not interested in working with models who tend to flake; models who cancel or reschedule frequently (more than once a month), divas, prima donas or drama queens.
