About Me

Flamingo Tongue Creations®
Photography and Writing Services

Currently processing TFP shoots, but not in any particular order.

**While I normally plan and schedule months in advance, my current situation providing respite for someone two states away and awaiting the burial of another relative at Arlington cemetery between now and May 2025, as well as my day job, have made scheduling shoots tricky and last minute.  I apologize for the craziness. 

I am interested in establishing and maintaining industry contacts.  Main areas of focus include photographing models in areas involving reflective surfaces, water, fine art shoots, and urban decay.

**The more notice given from traveling models the easier it is to set a time to shoot.  I prefer shooting on Fridays with enough notice to book a HMUA or body painter. Think two to three months in advance.

I require a full release.  When I take a photo I want the option to sell, paint it, modify it, up load it to social media, up loaded it to stock, delete it, burn it, incorporate it into another photo that will be added into another photograph that could be sold, put it into a composite piece, or hire someone else to process it or composite for me when time is scarce.

If you are interested in shooting around the coral reefs message me for email contact.  I frequent the Florida Keys (appr. 40 min east of Key West.)  This is for experienced underwater models only.  These shoots are subject to weather conditions and are trade only or you have the option of paying for the boat and fuel.

Normally, I will contact models for shoots or put out a casting call, but when contacted I will consider if you could work into future concepts.  These concepts can be just about anything, but usually have a theme of abandoned or reflection.

The best way to reach me is by sending me a request for my email address.
