I've been shooting models for more than nine years. I'm always looking for new models to work with. I'm more than willing to share my knowledge as well as learn new techniques.

Why would you like to join this group?

Always looking to shoot with new and experienced models and learn from other photographers

Are you a photographer, model, MUA, or stylist?

Photographer? That the one with the camera, right?

How did you find our group? :)

Kim's name was written on the wall in the photo gallery at the Art Institute.

    Michael, all I showed you was how to ... how to fuck with what you already have! Email me: [masked] and I can link you to some resources to also keep "opening your eyes" as to how to mess-up what you already know and challenge yourself to PUSH the light. The shot that comes up as my avatar, this chick in the see-through turtle neck? That was ONE LIGHT ONLY! It's not as difficult as people make it out to be, but you still have to screw it up before you find your rhythm. Happy to help!

    That would be great Michael. Please do bring your lights. Lets coordinate to set it up one day before, or show you the place a few days in advance so you have some idea of the space and where the lights will go. I was thinking one black and one white background. I'll work on getting that too. Thanks Michael!
