Photography is my passion in life and I love what I do with it.
I am looking for respectful models with a real professional attitude about the industry. Models that do not have to be directed in there posing for the most part and know how to dress and look. It's not just a beautiful face but the brain behind it that knows how to model.
I have been shooting for 30+ years doing mostly product shots and weddings. Working for many of the now closed catalog studios in Chicago, I shot products for Sears, Montgomery Wards, and J.C. Penny catalogs using 8x10 large format view cameras. And with photographing jewelry I worked with many models for there hands or necklines only. And the same went with shoes.
I am located about 45 miles west of Chicago near Naperville in a town called Montgomery, IL. All though pinup is what I like to do, I also do fashion, head shots, body parts, etc. I am easy to get along with and very respectful.
Rates are very affordable.
Studio shoots are $75 sitting fee, 1 model, 3 looks. You get 10 retouched photos.
Location shoots are $75 per hour 2 hour minimum plus travel and lodging expenses.
TFP shoots are limited to 1 hour in my studio, 2 looks, you get 2 watermarked
photos. Additional photos can be purchased at $10 each. 1 TFP session per model,that means you pay for any future sessions.
TFP is Extremely Limited - I will contact models that I will do TF projects with. These projects will usually involve industry standard models who's look suits one of my project ideals. I will also do TF with great designers/wardrobe stylist.
Paid assignments always take priority over any TF projects. This also includes workflow.
All photographs will be sent via email in no less then 2 weeks but no more then 6 weeks. You will choose your photographs at the time of the session. CD's of the images that you choose may be purchased at an additional charge and mailed to you.
Now the stuff that sounds grouchy and firm.
I DO NOT PAY MODELS. I will do one TFP only for those who are starting out or for those that I ask to do TFP IF you are willing to give me the shots that I want to do.
A model release must be signed for all shoots. You must have proof of age and anyone under the age of 18 must have a parent with them. I do not provide makeup or outfits. No drama allowed! If you must cancel, please tell me with good time. Tell me the night before if you can so I can plan to spend time with my family instead.
Cancellation policy- unless I have worked with you before, I WILL NOT reschedule your shoot.
Escort policy- I welcome escorts! Just NO males period.
