'MM Digital Artist of the Week' - Awarded 31st October, 2011
"A good photographer doesn't create stunning images; they are already there, its just a matter of finding them..."
My Shooting Parameters:
I don't shoot nude! Under no circumstances will I get nude to take photographs, no matter how much persuasion is used - ever! I'm professional, and I hope you respect me enough not to consider requesting it. ...
Escorts are welcome to drop off model, have a spot of tea and crumpets, leave, and come back after shooting is done!
Petrol money- Really now, would you ask Johnny Depp for diesel money?
Payment. I will not pay you, unless someone is paying me.
Mobile phone must be off. I know it's become a vital appendage but I promise you won't die without it for for a few hours.
Release required and photo ID. If you are lying about your age you will have to suck it up.
Pushing the barriers of what is possible to what is impossible thereby creating THE image a must. Don't get all wimpy.
GPS equipped a MAJOR plus.
Humour. A good sense of humour a definite plus- being serious makes the day very taxing for both you and me.
Absolutely no rescheduling on short notice without a notarized note from your Doctor (Drug Dealer acceptable), Bar Tender, Mechanic, Veterinarian, or Police! Pull a no-show and I will pull out my VOODOO DOLL, doll.
If you contact me send me as much details as possible including:
Full Legal Name
Bank Routing Information
Favourite Teacher in High School
Maiden name if any
Last Three Addresses
Favourite TV program
What side of the bed you lie on
If you actually read all this acerbic sarcastic stuff, laughed, dig my style and still like to shoot..... you rawk!
Seriously though, I take pride in my work and take my craft very seriously so A L L my images go through post production. I can't leave an image untouched. I have to fuck with it one way or another and am always willing to try something new. I'm one of those who actually enjoy doing post. other photogs may be content with mediocre results but if you're a true artist without any H I D D E N A G E N D A, you would use all available resources to better present your final product.
I only do TFs. this is simply a H O B B Y. I have a day job as an architect/airbrush artist that provides me with a steady income (well, most of the time anyway but this recession is seriously starting to bite me in the arse!)..
I cannot provide the clothes or the hair/makeup, however, if a model desires, they can get prepped prior to arriving to the shoot at their cost. That being said I would consider working with make-up artists/hair stylists/body-painters/clothing designers, etc...
I prefer N O C H A P E R O N S as they tend to get in the way of a shoot. If you don't trust me, fine. no hard feelings. move along.
If you are a model (male or female) and are interested in having photos done to further your & mine portfolio please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org, I look forward to hearing from you.
Areas I am particularly interested in are artistic/edgy prints- photos that within themselves make a statement in their own right and are a break from the norm. If you have an interesting concept that you have thought about and would like to bring to fruition let me know and we can bang our heads together and see what we can come up with.
I always strive to achieve visual stimulation- otherwise what is the point in doing it in the first place?
Remember- 'Beauty inspires the soul...'
