About Me

I am being very very very selective with my shoots up until March, I have very little time to do TF work before starting Law School in March so I guess you can say I am kinda taking a "break" for a little bit....

Follow me on Twitter http://twitter.com/MidwestPhotog

I am pretty new in photography compared to many photographers on this site (I'm only 30 years old!!!) and I have about three years + experience with shooting models, but photography has been a passion of my life for years. I'm really looking at expanding my portfolio though this site. I think my best work and creativity comes with swimsuit, lingerie and implied shoots...I just love glamour. I'm a goofball..I like to have fun on the set because it shows in the photos..trust me you'll have fun! My rates are VERY reasonable and I do TF on a very very limited basis...

Upcoming Projects: I'm so sick of shooting in Studios...I wanna expand my work and do outdoors, bedrooms/bathrooms, different places in the cities and off the wall locations.

*Info*- "I honestly rarely pay models out of my own pocket, I am not saying my work is just so amazing like some photographers on this site , I just rarely pay because I have limited time with the shoots I have and usually if I need something in my portfolio I will add it in one of my TF shoots. I still ask models to work with me for pay if its for a client etc who is paying the models expenses or the model is extremely hot and would benefit my portfolio."

Everyone has a different set of rules, here are mine.

* No Escorts - Non negotiable, I only prefer those who are there working on the shoot with me - makeup, hair, designers. I can provide plenty of references if requested. I just work my best when I don't have someone else looking over my shoulder. My focus should be on the model, and producing great photos and I really wanna leave any distractions at the door. It's not to get you alone in a room etc...all these horrible stories I have heard though MM...I had my gear stolen once and it cost a ton of money to replace, so instead of putting me in the spot again I just eliminated the situation. If you need an escort, there are hundreds of thousands of photographers on this site and others...save the time of writing me an email and use them instead.

* No original images or set amount of pictures to be received when I am doing a TF shoot- I will choose the images I like the best, I will re-size, edit, and copyright the pictures and email them to you. I will only publicly use the same images that I send you, and if I edit any more in the future I will send those to you. Most models get between 5 and 10 (some get many more, depends on how well we do) edited pictures, which holds plenty of value in exchange for their time.

* I do not give the model permission to edit, alter, enhance, or crop my photos. I love going to someones portfolio and seeing they made the photo rainbow colored with 30 hearts they had drawn using microsoft paint...if other models or companies didn't like my work before..they def won't like it now haha.

You can count on receiving the photos within 2 weeks. Nearly everyone I shoot with ends up setting up another shoot with me. I'm not gonna rush my work, you want the best work possible I can give you...give me time to get them done right.
