My goal is to produce beautiful and intriguing images of happy and healthy women. I usually shoot with full nudity, as that is most pure and free. But beyond that, your limits and wishes will be absolutely respected. You can pose however you want, and if you want to change the way things are going just speak up. I’m easygoing and I want you to really love the images we make of you.
I prefer to work spontaneously and creatively – in the moment – without too much preconceived idea/concept. This takes some trust, by both the model and myself, because we don’t know in advance what the images will be like. However, you can check out my work here on this website to get a general idea of the range of what I do. It is often helpful to discuss the general nature of the shoot and images we are looking for beforehand, ideally in person, although that is not always required. We can meet somewhere public and have a chat. Feel free to bring a friend if you wish. Most people think I’m a decent person, and I think that’s part of the reason I can get such relaxed pictures.
I have many excellent references from recent models, who will attest to my integrity and general not-creepiness. (But I usually only give these numbers out once we meet in person, in order to protect my models privacy and safety.) I try to be sensitive to my models feelings, and want you to be as comfortable and relaxed as possible. You are welcome to bring someone to the shoot as an escort, as long as they are chill, and don’t interrupt the creative process.
I usually work in TRADE: a collaborative exchange of talent, time, energy, equipment, etc. For me, the introduction of money changes the dynamic in subtle but real ways, and affects the quality of the images. I support people making money from their efforts, but for this work I try to avoid it. I have a separate profession I make my living from.
I have a Model/Photographer Agreement that we will both sign and keep copies of. It gives us both equal rights to use the finished images as we wish. I can provide the agreement to you beforehand for your review.
Women sometimes worry that they are not beautiful enough, or that they’re bodies are not perfect. No one is perfect, but everyone can shine, in my opinion, and it’s my job to capture and celebrate that shining 😉
I shoot in a variety of locations, both indoors and outdoors. I prefer non-studio settings, and so am always scouting for interesting places to shoot. I very much like to hear of location ideas from the model, and I can usually make anything work. I like shooting in a models home, as it seems to allow a more relaxed feeling. However I can always provide a suitable place if I need to.
I do sometimes shoot for money, if a client wants exclusive rights (I do not publish in any way). Please inquire as to rates, which are on a sliding scale. Otherwise I am not making any money from these images, I do not sell them to other sites, etc. In the future I may try to make some money, from books, prints, gallery shows, and maybe using a site like Patreon.com where artists can share their work and get some support.
You can always change your mind about any of this of course, but PLEASE respect my time, like I will respect yours. Let me know if you are thinking of changing your mind, or are running late, or whatever. I may be dissapointed but if you communicate with good intentions it’s all good.
