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. His work is getting better with each shoot he does and he has really creative ideas. he is definitly one to watch and comes highly recommended by me.

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 :)
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.
I had a shoot with Tiina last saturday: she was on time, with a very good wardrobe and fun to work with. She was able to work with little direction as well as able to cope with very specific commands. I will definitely work with her again!
Being the first photoshoot with a model from this forum, I was a bit tense..instead it was a breathe! She is fun, down to earth, hard working and always trying to get 110% out of what she is doing. Punctual, reliable and full of ideas: thanks for making this shoot so easy for me :)
