About Me

***my website http://www.vplacephoto.com is down for updating*****
Please contact me through email at [email protected] com 

I am currently acquiring my Master's degree in Visual Art from JU.  I am a multi-media artist and work in all mediums. 
Though I am working on my MFA I do not shy away from my Fetish & Bondage work, quite the contrary.  My current interests are in models who know what kind of images they want to gain from a shoot and can bring an idea that can be churned through an artist's mind and brought to life in a way you may not have considered.  That being said, I want to make it a process in which you are involved in evolving the original idea into its final form.  Creativity breads creativity, so if you are looking to expand your portfolio and have ideas let's talk and see if we come up with something interesting.


ABOUT MY SHOOTS: I do not pay models. I do not pay model's traveling expenses. I will do Trade with very selective models that I have an interest in working with for my own personal projects.  Do not contact me with your rates, but contact me to see if there may be a project you want that I could be interested in doing!

I model so I know what it is like to be in front of the camera.  This is why I do my best behind the camera to make each shoot as fun and easy going as possible.  I am an artist and I have my “in thought‿ moments but beyond that I usually have my models laughing at some point during the shoot.  Sometimes despite the fact we are trying to be serious.  I do Fetish and Bondage shoots that deal with some nudity.  I will do casual shoots as well but I love my specialty.

I am a Photoshop pro and I do not provide anyone with raw images unless you are willing to pay a negative fee of $5000.00.  If you pay this fee you will be provided only the raw images and I will not allow my name to be associated with the images.  I do not allow anyone else to edit my images.  I do all work on the images and in the end I provide you with the highest quality product with my name and copyright. 

All models are required to sign a model release on the day of the shoot.  I will provide you a copy of the release via e-mail so you may look it over and discuss with me any issues you may have prior to the shoot. The copyright is maintained by me, the photographer, however the model is welcomed to use the final images for her pay site, portfolio samples, contests, etc. Please RESPECT my work and my copyright! Please credit me on my work. Models who do not do this not only look unprofessional but also look disrespectful and will turn off other photographers who may look at your site. All this is clearly stated on my model release which every model signs. Please read your model releases carefully!

NO CAMERAS ARE TO BE BROUGHT TO A LOCATION WE ARE WORKING AT BY YOU OR YOUR TRAVELING GUEST/ESCORT! If you or your guest takes a photo, you will be asked to LEAVE!


If I agree to TFCD - CD is sent whenever I finish it with no timeframe made by the model! Sometimes that can be 6 weeks or longer depending on my schedule and the amount of paid work I am working on. I do however, send out images as I get them done via e-mail so you have something to post.  I NEVER give originals to my models in TFCD shoots.

Paid shoots are priority so if you are in a hurry, pay me.

Feel free to contact me and let me know you are interested in working with me whatever the case, so I can keep you in mind for future projects.
