About Me

How We Work TF*'s

Please understand our work is very important to us and we provide top notch quality work. After the shoot is over, we typically spend allot of time, energy and effort in front of the computer editing & post processing images. We generally do not provide any unedited images - most times we will only provide 3-5 finished high res. images per look.

*** If you are looking for top quality work instead of a whole cd of unedited pics, let me know and we can talk about what we can achieve working together.

*** Escorts - No Romantic Partners Will Be Allowed. ***

*** Do Not accept TF* work with anyone under the age of 18 without parent or legal guardian written permission. This means, the legal guardian must sign our Model Release in front of us ! We do not allow under age models to take a Model Releases and have it signed without us being present !

*** All Models must have a valid State or Federal Photo ID on site at the time of photo shoot.

FYI, I DO NOT reschedule no-shows and/or last minute cancellations under any circumstances. If you miss the shoot for any reason, you are out of luck. If you don't plan to make the shoot, please don't schedule in the first place.

Organization and planning is the key to success.

Thank You,
Rick & Tina Piel
