I make Pretty People..Prettier. :-)
Hey, 350 an some model's can't be wrong.. can they?

Model Mayhem page

I'm a photographer with 9 yrs of shooting experience from head shots to dancer flyers to website content, I'll photograph someone as long as they have a vision and desire. I don't limit who should be in front of my camera.

When I do my shoots , I make sure to use our time and get your images seen by someone who can help you to reach your goals. What's the use of good photos if they aren't helping you in your career? Now my background is doing magazine shoots.. website content and viral promotions.. Basically it means I can take the picture..edit it.. get it into a magazine and when your ready to launch your site, I'll do the webcasts and get you web traffic which makes you money.

I don't let other's cage and barrier who I work with just because they don't fit a preconceived notion of a model. So have faith and bring your charisma to the camera. I'm ready to work with you.

READ THIS!!!! UPDATED as of 6/30/09

2 hour shoot minimum is recommended to maximize getting great images, on location that means no studio. The world is a big place let's use it :) Please have at least 2 outfits, variety is the spice of life.
The best 5 to 6 (4 for TFP shoots) images for every hour of shooting touched up and edited (TFP shoots will less extensive editing) will be sent to you within 2 days of the shoot. They will be tagged with my logo as you can tell from looking at my gallery. You will get 2 versions of each image (TFP gets Hi Res web image only). A printable one meaning go to kinkos or such and you'll have at least a photo sized clear image and the other version is web ready meaning you can upload it straight to myspace or such without any image errors.

VERY Limited TFP shoots (unless we have talked before hand) with a 2 hour max shoot time, and yes I know "Money is tight, can't you work with me". Everyone should have my photos in their portfolio. Yes, I do have a payment plan... as I said, "I want everyone in my portfolio." So contact me and we can set up a rate that works with your budget because after the shoot, I am still working on your images. I create my shoots and themes based on you. I'm not a cookie cutter when it comes to shoots. So yes, getting some payment for my work is expected. You can't go to McD's and ask for free food can you ?

I like to talk and stay in contact with a person I'm going to be shooting with either via email or on the phone before and after a shoot. I feel it helps me to learn about the model and makes the shoot more fluid and relaxed.

I usually shoot on the Weekends, or on Government holidays.

Due to some backseat drivers and just bored "friends" of models. I don't do escorts, under most situations. If you must, then they can't be on the set while we work. I'm looking to build a rapport with you while we shoot. If you can't trust me how can I trust you. I have plenty of references, to prove I am a safe and professional person. Sorry. My time like your time is valuable.

Cancelling within 36 hrs of the shoot means the next shoot will have 20% added to it or you can pay a non-refundable deposit ahead of time to avoid the 20% on the next shoot.

Your MUA is not the photographer. I shoot, they do make up.
