OK, time for an update. My main, but not exclusive, interest is portraiture, art nude, and lifestyle. I would also be interested in trying the gothic style and similar alternative approaches. My overall intent is to get behind the pose to capture the individual.
I am hoping to find models in my area who might be interested in TFP to try and build a portfolio. Costs may be balanced against TFP by arrangement, or if the model wants to limit publication. All depends upon the deal, which needs to be arranged before the day.
I have a serious intent to try and produce top quality pictures at all levels, and if I’m good enough the intention is to go at least semi pro in a year or so. Trouble is, quite a few models seem not to want to work with a tog unless he is 'good'. Well, how the hell did they get good? Practice. The same can be said of models.
I have recently invested in a small portable studio flash setup, complete with background/s and am willing to travel a fair way for the right model, whether paid or TFP. The further the location, the better the arrangements have to be though.
I need practice to develop my skills. To that end, I am willing to negotiate joint copyright on any pictures taken, even on paid shoots, at least until I get good. I will also say that my interest is totally confined to photography. This seems to need saying. Until I signed up with this board I never realised how many DOM are using photography as a front for perving. That ain't me!
I do have quite a serious philosopy on photography, particularly in respect of adult work. I won't post it here, but of you're really interested, or need something to help you sleep at night, I'll send a summary! :-D
Well, other activities have taken my time recently, so I've not had much time to indulge, photographically speaking. Now I'm starting to look around for an inspiring model to start up again.
Getting back into photography after a break of quite a few years. Digital is good!
It was a long time ago (30 years!!), but I have worked at wedding photography, a couple of biggish fashion shows, and assorted portraiture. I mostly still don't get my thumb over the lens, or 20 pictures of my left ear.
