United States, New York
I have for the past two years been focusing more on the glamour side of photography.
If I do employ a model, I will NORMALLY only employ models who are comfortable with nudity, even if the shoot does not require nudity.
As a freelance photographer I have contributed to a number of websites and I have been published internationally, and have held several exhibitions. I was recently selected as the front cover exhibitor for a very prestigious website / magazine.
I'm very laid back, and like to keep shoots lighthearted. This does not, however, mean that I conduct my shoots in any manner other than professionally. I respect the model, and request the same in return.
I typically reserve £5,000 per annum to hire models, and usually shoot UK models, both in the UK and over in
Brooklyn New York in my studio. I pay travel and accomodation expenses.
