About Me

About Craig:
Professional photographer, 20 years of commercial & fine art experience. I have a BFA in art with a concentration in photography and have worked as a college level educator in photography for about half of my career. My work has been shown in galleries nationally and internationally. My commercial work has been included in a number of print and digital publications.

Photo shoot info:
I'm only doing location shoots currently. I was working for a studio downtown but have decided to go out on my own instead of working for someone else. But I have not found a good studio location yet.

You'll have to sign a model release to protect us both. We'll agree to the terms and usage beforehand.

About your images:
I shoot with professional camera equipment. Either full frame digital or film. Whether the work is tfp or I am paying you, I will give you high resolution images of the final images.

What I am looking for right now:

Portraits - I'm updating my portrait/head shot portfolio. I've been doing product photography almost exclusively for the past few years and now I'm getting back into portraits but that means creating a new port.

Stock photos - I am also getting back into stock photography. I created a portfolio years ago that I continue to get royalties from, so I'm going to update that as well. That means high volume editorial photography. It's easy and fun to model for because it is just acting. Examples of stock photo shoots could be photos of you cooking, or ballroom dancing, or holding up a sign, or driving a car, or lying in the sun, or having a battle with water guns at the pool. Just any kind of activity that people may need photos of. And I'm definitely open to suggestions - for example if you're a tennis player we can do a shoot of you playing tennis. It can also be as weird and creative as we want, because unique photos can often be sold for a premium. I do pay for stock photo models, and what I really desire are a few people who I can do regular shoots with that would provide us both with a regular income. As I said, volume is the key. A nice benefit is that you'll get published often. I have hundreds of images published in books, magazines, newspapers, ads, and all sorts of websites. It's really fun when a friend calls you up to tell you how they just came across your face on an article about the rising cost of festival tickets in the Southeast that ran on a well known industry blog or something.

Cosplay I love to shoot cosplay because it is fun and I can be very creative. But typically it is just for fun so it will almost always be tfp.

Fine art I come from a fine art background, but I have not been making new work or showing work recently. I've just been concentrating on professional/industrial photography. I do intend to get back into this as well, though, because I miss the creative end and it's really who I am as a photographer. I did a series of artistic nudes and had some success showing the work, so if you're interested in that please do hit me up because it would help motivate me to get back to my roots and showing in galleries. I always pay models for nude photo shoots, and I require for both of our protection that you bring someone you trust along with you.
