About Me

"Good communication skills are key to success in life, work and relationships." Z. Hereford

You don't have to be great at communicating to be a successful model, but you do have to communicate. If I reach out to you to inquire about a shoot and I don't hear back from you, I probably won't reach out to you again.


Why am I on Model Mayhem?
Because I am interested in photography, lighting, backgrounds (real, not studio), equipment, and the process in general. Photography is one of several passions that I have, but I hate taking landscapes. Watching the process work from behind the camera is exciting. There is nothing I would like more than to see the career of a new model explode because of a photograph that I took.

Why would a model want to shoot with me?
Because you have a dream, a desire and passion for being a model, but you need some photographs that people will look at and pay attention to. Because I can take better pictures of you than you can take with your cell phone. Because I won't charge you to take pictures that will benefit my portfolio. Because I keep my appointments and I am usually on time.

Why would I not want to schedule a shoot with a model?
Because if you only do paid shoots, I am not going to pay you to take pictures that I can't sell. Because if I set aside time to meet you for a shoot and you don't show up or otherwise waste my time you are obviously not serious. Finally, I won't make an appointment for a shoot if I don't have time because of everything else that is going on in my life.

Check out my website, there are a couple of articles that will help you understand how to make the best use of your time at a photoshoot.

If you want to shoot, send me a message or you may call or text me, (323) 929-SWAN. If you call you can expect to leave a message.

IF YOU WANT CONTENT for a paywall site or any other commercial endeavor, ask me how you can obtain 100% control over the photos that I take. I am open to cash deals, royalties* and even modified TFP deals.**

*Royalty deals are only available for established paywall users on sites that provide tracking.
**Modified TFP deals are a great way for new paywall users to obtain content with little or no out-of-pocket expense. As we know, typical TFP deals permits a model to use the photographs for non-commercial use. With a modified agreement, the model can obtain 100% control over some of the photos, and the photographer would retain full control over the rest. A typical modified TFP deal would be a 50/50 split.
