Portrait Projects

These projects are not a open model call. Individuals are encouraged to "apply", please understand not all are accepted.
This is based on several factors - ability to travel to Lugoff, SC - good in one's own skin - and general looks that match the project.
I do not pay for your time with these projects and I do not charge you. Payment is given with many high rez images for your own use.
All projects are at my home either in my garage "studio" or my backyard unless otherwise noted. Also be sure to read over my Model Page.

Bare Shoulders Project...

This project is basically complete.  But I certainly won't say no to someone wanting to do this project.  Simple lighting, against a solid color backdrop. This is a head and shoulders type of image, no special outfits needed. I have material for wrapping around the body. Bare shoulders, BARE SHOULDERS! Nothing more shows! It's about the personality of the subject and their ability to interact with the camera.

No Bottoms Project...

This project comes from inspiration from the Esquire Magazine in 1993 and 2003. This is a full length image set, because it's all about the legs! The second two images were taken by me in 2008 in my studio in Buffalo, NY. The concept is no bottom, but a top that covers all... could be a men's shirt, a sweater, a large blanket... so you can show off your legs!

Open Door Project...

This is a very easy project, and a great way to see how I work.  No lights, Head and Shoulders or full length... colorful clothing helps.  The only lighting is the light coming in from the garage door being open. If you have never posed for a photographer, it's a great way to get comfortable in front of the camera.

Ring Light Project...

This project makes use of a "RingLight" to produce a portrait. A special light is used to light the subject, a circular light. This is mostly head and shoulders poses. Colorful tops, or bare shoulders... this will be a project that WILL require good makeup as all the images will be tightly cropped around the subject's face.

Meeting out and about... on location

This is a fun and easy project, and a great way to see how we work together. We meet somewhere public... downtown, train station, park, etc.
No fancy lighting, just the light of the day! If you have never posed for a photographer, it's a great way to get comfortable in front of the camera.
