Information for photographers...?
I am happy to work either in a studio or on location. I am happy to travel the photographers studio of choice or work on location, I love to shoot outdoors, (but please consider I need a space to make the model up in first). I have a data base of models if required whom will work either on TFCD or Fee basis.
Where will I work...?
I will work any where with in the UK, the EU, the Nordic countries and EU succession counties, western Russia, the USA (New York, New Jersey and New England areas only).
What languages are your team fluent in...?
I speak fluent in English and Basic Italian, my team speaks English, Italian and Lithuanian fluently and basic Spanish.
My business partner Fabrizio Federico and my two assistants also work with me for larger jobs.
Information for models....
I use water based, non toxic, water based high standard cosmetic paint. The paint can be easily removed with soap and water at the end of the shoot. I am able to send a patch test kit out to models so that they can test the paint for skin sensitivity before the shoot.
Models should remove body hair before the day of the shoot to ensure smooth skin. Models should drink plenty of water the day before the shoot, ex-foliate and moisture well. The night before the shoot and morning of the shoot models should eat lightly. The morning of the shoot models should take a cool shower and not apply any lotion to the skin.
For nude shoots a "pro shield" is worn between the legs to cover the models lips. The model is able to apply and remove this herself.
I usually charge upwards of 50,000HUF for a full body paint. A simple one color body paint is 30,000HUF

Im trained in body painting/fx/mud working/prosthetics.
