I pride myself for taking guys who are unknown to the modeling and acting worlds and developing them into someone who is comfortable in front of the camera and to help them develop an incredible portfolio so that it will be easier to get into modeling and acting, without hassles and a huge amount of money.
I am not an agent, but my work is always out there so agents and other people always keep and eye out for my models. I think keeping in the public eye is the secret of making it. I also sometimes work with individuals who don't want to be a professional model or actor, but just want to create and have photos done of themselves for fun and for the experience.
Of course, when going to a photographer, you look at his portfolio, but you also look at the consistency of his work and how comfortable you are with him. I know with me, if my subjects are comfortable with me, the better the pictures come out and with more variety.
As the photographer, I am open to new ideas and suggestions for fun and exciting future photo shoots.
