|Frequently Asked Questions|
Q. What is your specialty?
A. I specialize in creative artistic female portraits, model shoots/portfolios, and fine art. I enjoy creating digital art composites using my photos combined with other photo elements to create an art piece. Please note: I do not shoot events, weddings, ceremonies, pets, children, or male portraits at this time.
Q. Do you shoot in studio, or on location?
A. I have been doing photography off-and-on for 35 years. I am now a full time freelance photographer and loving it.
Q. How do I make an appointment?
A. Absolutely. I would encourage you to message any model/client I have worked with to discuss my level of professionalism. You should do this for any photographer you are considering. My Facebook page will link you to models I have shot.
Q. Can I bring someone with me to the shoot?
A. Most of my packages INCLUDE professional hair and makeup artists (MUA). If you prefer to do your own, that is fine and we can adjust the price a bit.
Q. Do you do TFP work?
Q. Will I get a CD?
Q. Can I edit the photos myself?
A. What you wear is entirely up to you. It's your shoot. Everything from skimpy (or less) to full gowns. Any and all wardrobe should be in good condition, ironed or steamed and be camera ready to shoot. Please don’t come with clothes crunched up in the bottom of a bag. Bring on hangers so we can place them on a rack and view each outfit to decide the look we want to shoot. Bring heels and accessories.
Q. Do I have to sign a model release?
A. I accept cash, credit/debit cards and Paypal payments. Payment options are also available. A $100 sitting fee is required at the time of booking and the unpaid balance due prior to the shoot. No refunds for deposits if client does not keep the appointment, however the shoot can be rescheduled with no loss of the deposit.
Q. Do you photograph children, students or families?
Q. Do you pay professional models?
Q. I am not a professional model. I don't know how to pose and I am a bit nervous about it all
A. Yes. If the model or client wants tastefully done artistic nude photos, we will discuss the ideas, agree on poses and proceed with utmost professionalism. I do not shoot porn. Classy photos can also be obtained with "implied nudity" meaning the photos may be taken in the nude, but private parts are not exposed to the camera in the shots. Note to young models: DO NOT allow any photographer to convince you that you must have "a few nude photos" in your portfolio. While, it can certainly be a beautiful art-form, it is a personal choice and NOT a modeling requirement. Make your choice wisely.
Q. Is there anything that you will NOT shoot?
