Over the years I have won various awards and merits in art photography world. My artwork had been exhibited, sold and published. I work in image manipulation field of an art photography. My art can range from conceptual and abstract to whimsical and fiery tale. I use a lot of combinations of nature beauty and beauty of human body to deliver my ideas.
As a visual artist, I have been regularly photographing models for many years. I photograph male and female models in dressed, nude and implied form depending on model’s level of modesty.
I work full time as a professional photographer so my art photography time is limited to one-two days per week. Newertheless i agree to meet with models before actual shooting to meet and discuss possibilities in working together. I often do that and always encourage models to meet beforehand. We waste more time during photo sessions if we not familiar with each other’s ways and abilities.
Some of the models I work with have little or no experience some work as fashion models. Dancing, gymnastics, yoga and acting skills can be helpful but not necessary. You can be shy and awkward or bold and sassy and still be a perfect model for my artwork.
All models must be over 18 years old and willing to sign standard Model Release. Signing Model Release is essential for my artwork to be printed, exhibited and published.
Your photos might be used for various artwork in different times.
For those aspiring to professional modeling, I can help them build their portfolio in exchange of posing time for my art. In this case models will have digital edited set of images from our portfolio photo session and may use them in any way except to make money from selling them.
Models compensation is an important aspect of the process. Models can choose to get monetary compensation, or portfolio building TFP/TFCD deal, or to have a limited edition “model’s print” of final artwork whenever it is finished. I pay $25-75 per hour depending on model’s experience and my budget for particular project.
If you would like to pose for me please contact me with recent full body photos or link to your web presents (personal website, FaceBook, Instagram, Model Mayhem etc.) to schedule photo session.
