I am very keen to work with people from different ethnic backgrounds and I also seek alternative, tattooed and body modified models. Likewise for dancers, gymnasts, fitness instructors or yoga exponents.
I do require a Model Release form to be signed for each shoot.
I have my own mobile kit including lighting, backdrop frame, etc and as an option this allows me to shoot at your place - indoor or outdoor, or else on location. I'm always looking to find good indoor locations; so if you have access to, a house or apartment (or other type of visually interesting location) I'd very much like to hear from you.
Using available light such as windows rather than flash is another area I’m exploring more.
I have found that the involvement of boyfriends or partners can complicate the organising of a shoot and often distract and inhibit the model and photographer. Having said that, one non-intrusive chaperone is quite acceptable. Of course a chaperone is mandatory if the model is under 18 years of age.
