About Me

I am currently looking for a female assistant to help on gigs.  This position is part time (at will) with flexible hours.  You do not have to accept every gig I offer you.  These gigs pay  $14.00 per hour. An out of town, overnight gig pays $140.  This includes leaving the night before, then working during the morning and early afternoon on a week day.  This might be a good thing for a model who lives near Skokie or Chicago Far North.  (847-334-2175 Cell and text) (847-673-2152 Studio) 
I am a photography student with more than 20 years experience as a professional photographer.  I offer free photos (TFDVD) to women 20 and over, in the Chicago/Skokie, IL area.  I need to get samples to show to other models.  I can take any kind of photos you like, so let your creative imagination be your guide.  Please contact me if you are serious about getting nice photos.  I have an indoor studio in my home and a private outdoor studio in my back yard.  I now also have a new studio in a building I recently bought.  Two of the women who live at my studio are models who are looking for another female to help share the rent there.  The rent is very affordable if shared by two or three women.  You do not have to live at the studio in order to work for us.  I can sometimes travel, however I prefer to do the first photo session in Skokie, IL.  Please click "View Photos" on the left to see some of my work.  Some of these photos have little mistakes in them.  I need to find models who will help me re-shoot some of them in exchange for free photos of any poses you might like to try.
I also offer free Photoshop lessons to the models I photograph.  It helps me if you know how to retouch some of your own photos, because right now I'm overloaded from models who want me to Photoshop their pictures.  I can use some Photoshop help; so if you know Photoshop and live near Skokie I may be able to pay you $14 per hour for some Photoshop help.  We also need help with office work.
Please contact me at [email protected] so I won't exceed my message limit on MM.
I am sometimes able to host female traveling models visiting the Chicago area; that usually means free room for a day or so while you are visiting.  Chaperons must be female if they want to sleep overnight.  Sorry, the women want to keep this for women only.

Lately, I have not had time to do more workshops; we are busy expanding the photo business into several states.
The following is a record of past events.  Maybe some day We will do more workshops. 
My next "Glamour Workshops / Shoot-outs" are not scheduled yet.  I need to know how many people are interested, and which days are good for you. 
Please keep reading my events and other threads by clicking on the links above.  I will add comments as I get new information about the workshops and shoot-outs. 
Skokie borders on the North side of Chicago, between Evanston, and Lincolnwood.  Any questions, please call Stann 847-673-2152 (Free for models TFCD).

I must have:  name, phone #, and email address in advance for everyone who plans to attend any events; that way I can notify you if there are any changes in plans.

The March 15 session was very succesful.  We had 4 photographers and 4 models. 
The April 4th session went very well.  We had 4 photographers. Three models posed for pictures plus two other models came by to help and also to pick up CD's.
The April 18th session was very succesful.  We had 6 photographers, 5 models, 2 trainers and a MUA.
The May 2nd workshop went well; we had three models for the morning and afternoon.  Two other models came in for the evening.  We had five photographers.  I received a lot of compliments as to how well it went. 
The May 16 session went well.  We had three models in the morning and three photographers.  In the evening we had two models that posed and one more model who came in to help make CDs for the models.
On May 30th we ended up with six photographers and six models.  It seemed to go well by having three sessions (11am, 3pm, and 6:30pm).  We used three camera rooms plus we shot outdoors under a tent.
The Jan 15 & 16 workshop went well.  We had nine models and four photographers on Thursday; on Friday we had six models and three photographers.  We used three full sized camera rooms plus a small setup in the hallway.  Some of the models are staying in touch for the future in order to get paid figure modeling gigs.
The Mar 26 & 27 workshop went well.  We had twelve models and three photographers.

If you are interested in my next workshop, please email Stann at [email protected].  I am not sure when I will have time to do more workshops.  I only do them by requests from models.
