After yesterday’s post (which is now the single most viewed page on my website) the unnamed model took to her Facebook page to call out Julie, me, and the photographer by name. She wisely deleted those posts because calling someone a rapist when no charges have been filed and no case has been tried is ... Read More There’s this model who popped up on Facebook about a year ago that I thought was incredible. She has a gorgeous face, long, lean, fit figure, a few well-placed tattoos, and is just a natural in front of the camera. Every picture of her I’ve seen – even those done by crappy photographers – is ... Read More When I started beauty/glamour photography, I signed up for an on-line model/photographer networking website. I was one of the first members (member number 544 – they’re now into the six digit member numbers), and for quite some time that site generated a lot of the model shoots I did. Suddenly in December of 2016, without warning ... Read More This was posted on a new model’s Facebook page: I was recently contacted by a model from a different state. She told me that it was “normal” in the business to fool around and sleep with photographers in order to get more images. She basically said if I want to be successful, I have to ... Read More I started 2017 with a photo shoot with one of my favorite models, Amanda. I was talking with my mother about my upcoming New Year’s Day photo shoot with one of my favorite regular models, and she asked me, “So how much do these models pay you?” If I had a dollar for every time someone asked me that question….. It has been a long time since I have had a “pretty girl” shoot. I decided to take a peek at old work to see how and where I have improved. Of course, once I started looking, I thought, “Hm. Let’s see if I can make that really good shot even better. So that’s what ... Read More I had a fun photo shoot on Saturday August 22 with a beautiful and creative young model, Alexandra Davis. A long time ago, too many years ago, I had a muse – a model I worked with many times over the span of two years. She was (is) a beautiful woman, creative, limitless, boundless, fun to work with, patient – in short, the best model I’ve ever worked with. After much soul searching and navel gazing, I have decided that taking pictures of pretty girls for fun and as an outlet for my creativity is worth more than nothing. A young lady I am friends with on Facebook recently posted this little bit of short sighted judgement: Just going to clarify this for everyone. To be a “model” you have to get paid. Not just take slutty pictures It was a beautiful March weekend here in North Georgia. I had two shoots booked with some incredibly beautiful tattooed models. My creativity was just under the boiling point with the anticipation of working with them. Then the unfortunate but all to frequent disappointment happened. The models all cancelled. The first shoot (Saturday) was to ... Read More A lot of my photography is what I classify as “pretty girl” photography. It ranges from portraits of roller derby girls, to girls in the shower, to girls in jeans, to girls in nothing, and a whole lot of everything in between. I have photographed real working models who make a living having their pictures ... Read More It should be pretty clear to most people that my photographic hobby is taking pictures of pretty girls. I confess to the full truth of that, and make no apologies for it. I am fortunate to have the support and encouragement of a very artistic wife who makes it possible and, at times, even "forgivable" for me to indulge my hobby. The next time someone tells you that it isn’t how you look on the outside that matters, but how you look on the inside – remember these photos. Eizo Pin-up Calendar 2010.
