Thanks for taking time to look at my profile.
My minimum level is full frontal nude, I will rarely tolerate obvious leg crossing or hand covering on my shoots and anyone I book will be fully briefed on this requirement; take a look at the section of my minimum level to see what I mean. In saying that, I will respect your maximum level just so long as you agree to my minimum level on any shoots.
I have no great interest in fashion or clothed glamour, although I will combine portraiture and fine art nude into my shoots.
Most of my shoots are where the model will be completely nude throughout the session; I am primarily interested in shape and form, so it will be important to be wearing loose clothing before any arranged shoots
I really enjoy what I do as it's my main hobby, and the escapism of a shoot helps me relax from my stressful day job.
I am really laid back when shooting and I like a chat also, just so long as it does not get too much in the way of shooting.
I have my own set of portable studio lighting and favour using a models home or location to shoot from as each shoot is budgeted and there is rarely any extra money available for studio hire
I only do paid assignments, which are good for you models, and also fairer as I really do not have time to edit lots of pictures for TF/CD due to work and other commitments. However each shoot is budgeted on an individual and merit basis, and I have a cut-off for which I will pay for a given shoot / level, but this will be discussed in the pre shoot communications.
As for other things, I am only interested at this moment in completely natural models. It is unlikely that I would shoot anyone with breast implants in the near future, unless they are very very convincing, so if you have implants please do not approach me for work or apply to any of my castings (unless you think they are very convincing). I also prefer even my nude level models to be completely shaven or at least significantly trimmed, the full bush look does nothing for the aesthetics in my opinion.
I also need to clarify that I will expect a general model release to be signed pre or post shoot almost without exception, especially if you are charging normal rate, but this goes without saying if you are willing to accept payment, if this concerns you then please mention it in correspondence.
Just one more but very important point, most of my shoots are arranged around my day job which is not related to photography, and any weekday shoots will be arranged in the late afternoon or very early evening usually for a period of two hours (some evening / weekend shoots could be 3 hours). However, due to the nature of my work, if I have arranged a home shoot it will be on the understanding that a start time will be flexible within reason as I am always predicting a start time due to my workload, this can sometimes be earlier, but often later, either way you will be contacted before the shoot to check if it is still OK to go ahead. In the very very rare event where a work problem occurs which has to dealt with and the shoot postponed you will be informed and offered to re-schedule. If a shoot is rescheduled then you will be compensated 50% of the aborted shoot plus the full amount for the rescheduled shoot at the agreed rate, this will be paid at the end of the rescheduled shoot. This will only apply if I cannot do the shoot due to work commitment where a shoot is abandoned, and not for a late start.
I hope this is clear; my work is what pays my bills and pays the mortgage, and ultimately allows me to pay for shoots, so my job will always come first
Thanks for reading and I hope we maybe able to work together sometime.
