United Kingdom, England, West Sussex, Yapton
I WAS A FASHION AND CATWALK PHOTOGRAPHER IN THE 90s BUT HAVE SENT THE LAST FEW YEARS AS A VIDEO CAMERAMAN MAINLY IN MOTORSPORTS.
I WISH TO RETURN TO STILLS AND THEREFORE WOULD LIKE TO PRODUCE STUNNING IMAGES FOR MODELS ON A TFP BASIS.
TFCD SHOOTS: Please get in touch if your're intersted in working with me on a TFCD shoot. Shoots would normally be about 4 hours, it does not matter what you look like or how old you are.
From the shoot you will receive a CD with all the images taken in low resolution proof format.
You can then choose 6 images to be edited to 1200 pixels (longest edge) which will be suitable for web portfolios.
Because of problems in the past I do not give out full size images, but I can produce A4 inkjet prints for £10 each.
Please note; even though I have never been required to produce a model release in my long career, that I always require models to sign one for any type of shoot.
I do not ask TF models to pay my expenses - so please don't ask me to pay yours.
SOME ADVICE FOR NEW, INEXPERIENCED MODELS:
Read the photographers profiles who contact you properly, study their images, read their feedback. If you don't like something about them, your instincts maybe right.Be exact to start with about the work types you say you'll do.
Don't put topless, etc when your just begining, you'll get a lot of unwanted and often upsetting emails.
Once you've found a photographer you like and trust, consider topless, nude, etc, but only with them.
If you feel uncomfortable, ask them to stop and delete any images that you are not happy about.
Always meet photographers first before you shoot, if you don't like them, or the set up, don`t let yourself be bullied into shooting with them. Remember once the image is recorded it is the photographers copyright! Do you want your image sold for hundreds of £s to a magazine or website having given your time free? Any decent Photographer will tell you if there has been any interest in a shot that you have done TF and would most certainly cut you in for a % of the profits if there is a substantial amount of money involved.
Use a model name, not your own surmame, and an email address and payg mobile dedicated to it. Easy to get rid of if modelling is not for you.
Reserve the right to take a chaperone to any shoot. It will put off a few of the Sleazy people with Cameras.
Try to take a friend of the same sex, they will help you feel safer.
Never give out your email address and mobile number too freely.
Wear comfortable clothes that will not!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! leave marks on your body to a first shoot, take a dressing gown, something very warm to wear between shoots especially on a beach.
It`s a hard world out there which is why I will never be rich, but I love what I do.
