I'm a Hobby Photographer from Limerick Ireland.
I lack my own studio space to shoot, and I also don't drive which limits my options for hiring models.
I cant host travelling models as I've small home with no spare room with Wife & a daughter with Autism. despite me wanting to get shoots in! I'm pretty much useless to a travelling model! But I'm happy to team up/Collab/share costs etc with local photographers in situations where a model might not mind two photographers on a day shoot.
I've no interest in remote/virtual shoots.
I'm an eyes type of photographer so I want models to look at the camera instead of away from the camera as much as possible. If your fully clothed or completely naked I don't care that's less of a priority for me its the eye contact with the camera that is the single most important thing for me where possible. I want the photograph to be about the person in it and not what they are wearing and not about the background as that is irrelevant compared to capturing a facial expression.
All work on my portfolio has been achieved with the help and collaboration of a fellow photographer Paul Askins, I highly recommend Paul for creative shoots and if your in the Limerick area of Ireland, he sometimes invites me along to shoot where we will split costs with models that are OK with 2 photographers on the day.
I like Simple Setups, and Simple Lighting. I dont want the props used and the background to distract from the Model in the photo.
Sure! props, wardrobe, background is important for the feel of the photo but Person first! props second! for me.
Not too fond of extreme lip fillers, but I'm not adverse to models who are Alternative who do this for body modification and look unique for alt shoots, Not a fan of Wigs or cosplay style shoots unless things are done right, Cheap Materials in Costumes tend to come through on camera and can look tacky if not done very carefully. I think if I was to do more costume style stuff the outfits would need to be High quality textiles and tasteful but these tend to expensive to purchase and I think work best during a planned organized location shoot with hair&makeup and theme.
I've some ideas of shots I would love to achieve up on Pinterest:
