Experience:
I am in the process of updating my portfolio so please ask me for my recent work. In the meantime, I am looking for a model to work with on a weekly basis (almost) while testing some new shooting techniques.

I have been shooting for almost 3 years now but I am always pushing to be better, more creative and at the par with some of the photographer on this site.
 
Comments:
I have been influenced a lot by the pin-up art of Elvgren: I love his pin-up look but I try to experiment with it in a someway more modern and glamourous way. Like "What would happen if Marylin and Betty Page were born in the digital age?!"
Other photographers I look up too are: David LaChapelle, Terry Richardson (controversial I know, but his ideas and out-of-the-box thinking, more than the style itself, are worth of consideration), Helmut Newton and Mario Testino.

However, I am open to try any idea as far as it is a bit edgy, out-of-the-ordinary and provocative...so, do not be afraid of asking :)

Had a great shoot with Ila yesterday. He is a lovely guy who is easy to get along with, and is very passionate at what he does. He gives great direction and puts you at ease.

I had a shoot with Ila. He's friendly and very professional. Had my make-up, hair and styling done by his wife who's a MUA. Got some great photos for my portfolio and we are already planning our next shoot. Thank you!
