i feel lucky to have such amazing friends, and to have taken such amazing pictures of them. i really love all the portfolio photos i've taken in the past 4 years or so. but i can only thank all of the people i've shot with for putting up with my indecision, spontaneous changes of lighting, scenery and wardrobe...and my complete and utter lack of direction skills.

Or my myspace is a good collection of my photographs too:
and or flickr(s):
On that note, I am looking for a permanent stylist/makeup artist and DIRECTOR. If you just want to direct and coordinate and/or style photoshoots and don't want to deal with all the technical stuff, then please contact me. I still would want to creatively collaborate with some or all of the shoots, so we would have to share a similar vision about what we think looks good. My portfolio is a good example of what moves me, if you don't like any of those, then we won't work well together. If you don't like working in digital or think photoshopping is 'cheating', then we won't work well together either. As is the case in Portland, I won't be able to pay you directly, but will be willing to split the proceeds from any photoshoot we do DOWN THE MIDDLE, if we work together well enough, and can collaborate well artistically.
My strengths are coming up with concepts/brainstorming, composition,shooting-for-post-production, lighting and post-processing (i'm a photoshop master :) ). My weaknesses are directing shoots, styling them, and the marketing/business side of things. Ideally these should be your strengths, and ideally you will be very outgoing and talkative. I am very soft-spoken and don't really sell myself well, so you need to be the opposite of that ;). Like I said, for anyone who fits the bill on this, they will get half of any money we make working together, both for doing the work, and for any resulting prints or publications our pictures are published in. Message me!
