Model Photography FAQ

Ok, so I’ve been in this business for a LONG time (meaning I’m an old fart).  My primary focus is portrait work and digital imaging.

I am no longer offering TFCD shoots.  Rates are reasonable.  Contact me for pricing information.

I may have an occasional test shoot opening available.  If you would like to apply for a test shoot, just shoot a message over to me.  You need to be at least 18 to apply for a test shoot.  If I contact you asking if you are interested in a test shoot, you can disregard my preferences below as you have already been pre-qualified for a test shoot.

If you are planning to apply for a test shoot or if I’m hiring you for a project, here are things I look for:

1.  I don’t care for body art.  Small tattoos, certain piercings are I can live with.  Extensive body art turns me off.

2.  I know most of you do but some of you don’t shave (your legs).  If you don’t, I’m not interested.

3.  I tend to favor real boobs over fake ones – I don’t care if you’re small, give me real.

4.  I prefer straight clean hair.  I’m not a fan of frizzy hair.

5.  I prefer clean simple footwear (preferably with heels).  I don’t care for strappy footwear and I hate cloggy shoes.

6.  You’ll need to have a good full length shot in your portfolio.

7.  You should look your best so if you’re not proficient with your makeup, you should consider having a qualified makeup artist do your face.  If you don’t know how to put on makeup, tell me ahead of time and I’ll arrange for a makeup artist for you at a discounted rate if you’re in Honolulu.

8.  If I contact you, at least give me the courtesy of a reply.  Nothing’s more irritating than seeing that you read the message but you didn’t bother to say yes or no or Hi!.

9.  If you’re a minor, I expect you to bring a parent or legal guardian with you.  No exceptions.

Other than that, I think I’m a pretty laid back, nice guy with a lot of patience and a warped sense of humor sometimes. 🙂

If you’re paying me, then I’ll ignore much of my pet peeves except #8.
