am always looking for new models in the Portland, Oregon area.
Would you like to model for me? Then,
drop me a line. Also, be sure to read the Frequently
Asked Questions for models.
Here's what I look for in a model:
- A lively sense of adventure & fun
-- this is my hobby, and it has to be fun. I love it when a
model can share in the fun. I like it when models are
enthusiastic and animated and move around and make suggestions.
We are making art together, and models who can participate in the
artistic process are best.
- Reliability -- I understand that
stuff happens, including last minute cancellations, but please let me
know what's going on, and never stand me up.
- Grace & energy -- while
modeling, move around, show me different angles, take the concept
& run with it, show me something new.
- No Tattoos! I understand
that tattoos are popular, but like many photographers, I hate
photographing tattoos: it feels like I'm copying someone else's
art, and I find them too distracting. So, if we can't hide
tattoos with poses, I'd rather not work with tattoos.
- Attitude -- stay within your
comfort zone, but challenge yourself to try something new.
-- yes, I am interested in good looking models.
- Bonus -- if you have specific
ideas or styles that you'd like to try to create with me, that's often
challenging & a lot of fun, too. Anything is fair game.
Here's a quick summary of what you'll find
in the Frequently Asked Questions for models:
- Don't do anything that makes you uncomfortable.
- All nude models are compensated in some way.
- I work with models with all levels of experience. I am very easy to
work with, and I've had excellent success helping people try nude modeling
for the first time.
- I do ask models to sign a release.
- I make pictures for fun and for my
- With some limits, models can use the pictures we make together.
I should mention that I
am selective and that I only schedule one or two sittings each month. So, if you are interested, please
