I shoot mostly glamour and art nude for print or online publication. I choose not to shoot in studios as far as possible as I prefer the more relaxed feel of a real home environment. Most of my portfolio shots were taken in models' own homes and whilst this can be challenging I find it makes for a more natural shoot.
Here are a few things I look for when shooting:
A relaxed and collaborative atmosphere. Particularly on a first shoot with a new model I rarely arrive with a preconceived idea of what I want. I like to meet the model and then we'll decide between us what is going to work.
I'm not interested in creating images of implied voilence, exploitation or images that are degrading and disrespectful.
I like to work with models who are natural and comfortable being themselves and not what they think a model should be.
Confidence and trust. I always check out a model's feedback on here and on other portfolio sites and I would expect them to do the same with me. Good, clear pre-shoot communication and a frank agreement of levels and limits are essential. If I'm not sure about you or you about me then we should not work together.
I'm always looking for the different, the remarkable, the unconventional.
I am generally offering paid assignments to models for web publication but I am also happy to do portfolio shoots for models either starting out or wanting expand their portfolio.
