About Me

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


* FASHION * LIFESTYLES * TRAVEL * RECREATIONAL ACTIVITIES * ART *

I'm fortunate to be working with very talented, very bright, very beautiful models, some who I've worked with for a number of months, even years. I always like the idea of establishing ongoing work relationships with models. The quality of the images keep getting better and better, and the shoots are more fun.

I'm always looking for emerging modeling talent, But I also like working with experienced models. I'm generally pretty good at coming up with the models that I need on a trade basis,. but I do do some paid shoots, particularly with models who might have a location to shoot at available or for difficult project shoots..

Dedication and dependability are more important than experience. I've taught modeling (and photography) so I'm pretty good at directing models to come up with quality images.

I've been shooting for a very long time, since the days of 35 mm slides and black and white film.

My background is primarily Editorial covering news/feature assignments for national magazines and daily newspapers. I have extensive experience shooting fashion, including runway and studio work, but I particularly like shooting on location.

I don't shoot runway anymore, but I still shoot fashion, swimwear, lifestyles and recreational activities.

At this point, now that things are beginning to start getting back to normal after a crazy year, I'm particularly interested in shooting Jewelry and Fashion Accessories, finding new and interesting locations, working on various personal projects and adding to my photo library.

IF WE'RE GOING TO SHOOT. PLEASE READ:

If possible, I like to have a preshoot meeting before the shoot, particularly on paid and project shoots. It almost always makes the shoot go better. But a phone call will work on basic test shoots.

For trade shoots, I usually provide 20 to 30 optimized images per shoot within 10 to 14 days. I don't  provide images.that haven't been optimized and I generally don't
provide images on paid shoots.

A Model Release (with photo ID) is required on all shoots..

If we're going to work together, bring a girl friend if you want, but no boyfriends, husbands or so-called escorts. (Generally too impatient and sometimes too controlling.)

Not interested in working with models that tend to reschedule frequently or models who have flaked out on shoots shoots. I don't schedule shoots with models that have another shoot scheduled the same day, either before or after.
