Can I bring someone with me?

Sure, having someone you trust accompany you to the shoot can help you feel comfortable during your session. Here are a few things to consider when asking someone to accompany you on the shoot.
Will you be comfortable posing with this person in the room? Will they be comfortable watching you pose?
Your companion will be attending for moral support only, they should not expect to “help” direct , pose or style your shoot.
Watching a photo shoot isn’t nearly as interesting as participating in one.  It would be a good Idea for your companion to bring something to entertain themselves while we work.
Depending on where we shoot space could be limited. Your Companion may need to steep into the next room to ensure they will not impact the quality of your photos.

Can we shoot a in a studio/ my place / a friends / a hotel?

Yes. I use a mobile studio that allows me to shoot almost anywhere. If you would like a “studio” look, I have access to several studio spaces that can deliver that look. However I prefer the less artificial look of a well decorated home, rental or hotel room.  Ultimately it will be up to your to decide on the look your want to achieve with your shoot.

Is there an age limit?

A limit no but a minimum yes,   You need to be 18 years of age or older. (Have ID ready to verify)

Do you Photograph men?

Yes, I photograph people over the age of 18. Your race,  gender, sexual orientation, body size and ability level are will not stop us from creating art together. If you want to pose for me, I’ll take your pictures.

Who is going to  see my photos?

Only the people necessary to insure the best quality results will be able to see your images. I will not use your photos  for advertisement or display them anywhere unless you give your permission in writing.

Do you have any female photographers?

No,  but I female assistants or hair / makeup artist that can sit in on our shoot if requested. You are also welcome to bring a friend with you to the shoot. If you’d simply prefer a woman behind camera I can recommend several amazing photographers for you to consider.

Can you come to my city?

Yes,  I love to travel. If you want me to come out just for you any travel related expenses will need to be covered.
If you have a group who would like to schedule more than $1500 worth of photo services I will make a trip to your city to shoot with you.
I will also announce the dates and locations of other cities that I will be available for bookings.
