About Me

"Beginning models, if you want to have one of the Best shoots that you will ever have, you need to shoot with Steve. He is very Professional, easy to work with, has Great ideas, communicates well and is very detailed. He pushed me to work hard to get the Best shots and pushed me to expand my comfort zone to get some really incredible looks. He is a Fantastic photographer and I can't wait to shoot with him again. I would highly recommend him to my friends and other models". Kate (Read more TAGS below)

Thank you to all of the Amazing MM Models that I had the pleasure of shooting with for my Summer 2023 "TFP Outdoor Woodland Portfolio Shoots". I enjoyed working with the Beginning models to help get your portfolios started and the Experienced models to update your portfolios. I'm back and planning My next Shoot! If you are interested in shooting with me at my next TFP Outdoor Woodland Portfolio Shoot in 2024 please message me and leave your email address and phone number and I will contact you with information on the next event.



WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:
I am a Trusted and Highly Recommended Photographer (see Tags & Credits below) and I guarantee that you will have a Fun and Productive time at my shoots! I enjoy Diversity and working with Models of All Types and sizes, thin or curvy, beginner or experienced, short or tall, needing portfolio photos or Social Media content. My goal is to create Amazing Looks that we both are proud to show off. If you are looking to have a Fun Shoot and gain some Experience in front of the camera while creating some really Great New looks  then Message me now to set up a Shoot!

The reason that my TFP Outdoor Woodland Nature shoots are so popular, is because I'm very "Up Front" about everything. There are No surprises at my shoots. Every Model receives a "Shoot Description" sheet that details everything about each shoot. My goal is to create photos that are Adventurous, Fun, Edgy, Daring, and Suggestively Sexy that will "Spice Up" your portfolio and "Get You Noticed". Check out my portfolio. If you like my "Style", let's set up a shoot. If not, thank you for checking out my portfolio. What you see in my portfolio is what we would be shooting.

My name is Steve and Photography has always been my greatest passion. I've been shooting for more than 45 years working to create beautiful photos. The BEST way to choose a photographer to shoot with, is to hear what other Models have to say about them. The "AMAZING MM Models" that I have worked with say it best!
Please "READ their TAGS" & Credits below. I am the kind of photographer that Beginning models love to work with and models with Some Experience come to when they are ready to "step up" to the more challenging" looks and poses. I promise to Push your modeling skills and your comfort zone to create Great New Looks for you.

Models "Please" DO NOT "Friend" me unless you "Really like my Style" of work and you are "Very Serious" about setting up a shoot with me. At least READ my profile and look at my Portfolio. I am Not interested in "collecting" a gazillion friends. I use my friends list as a "Contact List" for future shoots and castings. My list is "cleaned regularly" to keep it "fresh" with just the "Serious" models.



In my Portfolio you'll see "Beginning and Experienced" Models having a "Great time" as we create photos for their portfolios that are more "Daring, Edgy, and Sexy". My "Style" involves bringing models "out of the studio" and into the beauty of the "Outdoors". As Sports Illustrated and Victoria Secret have shown, swimsuits and lingerie look even Hotter when shot outdoors.

ALL ABOUT ME:
I am an open book. I just want to have Fun, be creative and shoot great photos. After 45 years, I still love to shoot TFP. There's always more to learn and TFP is less pressure and more Fun. All I ask, is that If you book a shoot with me, please have the decency and respect to show up - on time, shoot ready, and work hard to get the shots I want. It's that simple. Just a Note, when casting for a "PAID shoot", I only choose models from my "Friends List" that I have previously shot with. I am also very Happily married to an "incredible woman". I am not here to date!

PRETTY FACES and COMMITMENT:
There are hundreds and thousands of models competing for the same Modeling Opportunities. Your goal is to be the “exception”, the one who stands out, not just another pretty face. The ones who will "make it" in this industry are the ones who are "passionate" and "determined" about their career goals, are "self-confident", courageous and are willing to take the risks, and push their boundaries.
It is "VERY Important" that your portfolio shows a dedicated professional who is "Confident and Comfortable" in front of the camera. The industry is looking for Models who are "committed" to work hard at whatever is needed to make the shoot a success!

MODELS:
Please understand that there are a “Limited” amount of shoot times available. The models I choose to shoot with need to be VERY “Dependable, Dedicated, and Reliable"! It is very frustrating when models don’t show up when scheduled or flake at the last minute. It is not only "Unprofessional", but a real shame, because they have reserved a shoot time and locked out other models who would really liked to shoot.

AT MY SHOOTS:
"What you see in my portfolio is what we will be shooting". Get ready to be "Challenged"! The Models that I am looking to shoot with at my "TFP Portfolio Shoots" need to be  "Adventurous", "Open Minded to new ideas", "Self Confident", "Passionate", willing to take chances and step out of their comfort zones, take  directions well, are full of energy and ready to "step up" to the more challenging poses. Lingerie and other revealing outfits are always a part of my shoots. We will shoot Open shirts, No shirts, Implied nude and Tasteful Topless just like you see in my portfolio. I DO NOT shoot Full Nudes at my TFP shoots, but YES there will be some "Beginner" level nudity.

NEWBIES:
I enjoy helping New models start their portfolios and Beginners are welcome, but only if I believe that they are reliable, dedicated, and 100% committed to put in the hard work that it takes to get great shots. If you are ready to "step up" to the more challenging poses, contact me to see if I have any No Cost TFP Shoot dates available.

LOCATION:
I shoot mainly "Outdoors" in beautiful and private areas in Chatsworth & Simi Valley, so "please consider the driving distance" when considering to shoot with me. If that is too far for you to drive, PLEASE don't request to shoot with me! I like to use natural light, because it feels more “real” than studio work. It also adds a
whole new dimension to a models portfolio and gives the model a more diverse background to interact with to bring out more “attitudes”.

COMMUNICATION:
If we are going to work together, communication is "extremely" important. I'm not here to play games. If you are interested in shooting together, message me with your "email address and phone number" and I will get back to you to discuss a shoot together.

The number "1" reason models are removed from my friends list and blocked, is lack of communication, No Shows and LAST MINUTE Cancellations.

"Steve is a dream to work with as a photographer. He is very kind, concise, creative and caring. He puts his models safety and comfort first which I really appreciate. He had everything very storyboarded and knew what he wanted which is so rare. Very good at communicating with me before the shoot and during the shoot was clear about direction. If you get the chance you definitely want to shoot with Steve! Would love to work with him again." Read less

"Steve from Fantasy Photography Pics is the ONLY photographer who made me feel comfortable posing for "implied." He's patient and kind and definitely appreciates models of all sizes and shapes. His business and his MM profile prove that he finds beauty everywhere. He respected my stipulations for posted and used photos, was so respectful on location and incredibly professional. I would recommend Steve to any model - he can make your portfolio move up to the next level - and that's exactly what he did for mine! I cannot write enough great things about Steve, only that if you are a model and have the opportunity to work with him....TAKE IT! Since he is a consummate and talented professional, just know he will expect the same of you...and I believe that one, if not THE key to a successful photoshoot." Read less

I just worked with Steve for the first time, and from the beginning communications to the shoot follow up, Steve was so organized and professional!! His concept descriptions were detailed, and he was respectful in responding/adjusting for any questions or concerns. During the shoot, he gave amazing direction, and we were able to through about 7 looks in just 2 hours!!! The pictures came out beautiful...thanks Steve!
