About Me

Hi, My name is Randy Morgan.
  I am the owner and Photographer of Angel's 77 Photography. and have been doing photography for over 40 plus years. I have shot everything from aviation, college sports, NHRA Drag Racing to private shoots for models.
    I have been down for almost five years due to health issues, medically retired from my fulltime job and trying to start back shooting on a limited basis to start off with. I'm in the process of reconstructing my page here, deleting older work and starting fresh.
    I like to allow my clients free creative range and ability to try what ever they wish during a photo shoot and help them achieve their goals. I like my shoots to be fun which makes the models less tense and they enjoy themselves!
Note:  I will do trade for pick shoots for new models starting out to help build your portfolio. I'll do my best to pass my knowledge on to those willing to learn, showing you posing examples from other models as per the subject and theme of our project / shoot.
A photographer must be willing to try to share his knowledge, not be secretive
and selfish!!!
  You will not find Angel's 77 Photography in the phone book because I am on the go and only have my cell phone: 334-759-4787. Just wanted to clarify in case you have tried to find me in a phone book. Contact me here, call or text the above phone number. Just leave me a message and your name and what you are needing done. 
  I do not mind escorts on shoots as long as they are helpful and do not interrupt. I prefer a female models to have one so she feels comfortable with, especially if it's the first time we've worked together. With so many unethical photographers being out there, it's to every female models safety and best interest to have one.
  I'm currently starting back on a Classic Car and Lady Calendar (Example posted in my portfolio) to raise money for a Disable Veterans Home charity I'm involved with. I am donating my time and designing it myself. I will not make a penny on this project and the charity will receive everything less printing cost. It will be a modern classy pinup style look. You can use your own outfits appropriate for this type of shoot such as shorts, tops, dresses and swimwear. If this sounds like something you'd be interested in, please contact me even if you are outside of Alabama. 
    I've sent out friend request to many models in the Alabama, Florida, South Carolina and Georgia area, it's because I viewed you profile and loved your work.
I do paid professional shoots and my rates are reasonable  or Trade For Picture type shoots. Models will receive a photo CD of their edited shots (Not 4 or 5 Images), but the edited images of what we shot!
    Remember this, the only dream you can't attain, is the dream you never try  or something you are told you can't do.  My advice on that is just try it and give it a chance!!!  If a photographer believes in you, believe in yourself a give yourself a chance try something you want to.  The Photographer has the ability to help make your dreams come true. It takes practice and trying new things and time!!! Modeling and Photography is a passion we have or in some must be awakened!!!

A photographer's equipment is expensive.  We have to purchase it out of our own pockets and most of us have thousands of dollars invested in equipment cost such as camera's,  lenses, studio equipment and props along with building cost or rent, ,  thus we can not work for free!!!

Terminology and Definitions:.

Paid Assignments:  Paid assignments are jobs paid for by a client wherefore the models and photographers are hired for a job assignment by said client.  Photographers usually only pay models if they are hired by a client for a job and are asked to provide models for said job. Then the photographer has the task then to find models and negotiate price and pay them for their agreed fee for their time.  I  turn,  the photographer then charges the client for his photography fee and his cost of the models expenses. 

Trade For Picture Shoots:  This is a shoot where the models and photographers mutually agree to work together with no fees that benefit both parties regardless of the models experience which gives them both images.

Hourly Rates:  A photographer charges hourly rates and sets a minimum time for his shoots for Customers / Models that come to him to build their portfolio's or photography needs.  He may wave these hourly fees if it is mutually agreed by the customer / model to do a trade for picture type shoot.

    Professional Photographers must charge clients / models if he expects to stay in business and meet his expenses on utilities, equipment, and building/rental cost.  If
he or she doesn't charge for their services,  they will not be in business very long!!!
    I will work with and help anyone I can who's less fortunate or just starting out,  but a general rule is I have to charge for my work.  That is just sound business that keeps me in business.  I pray no one takes this wrong,  but I absolutely do not do weddings anymore!!!!!
My Photography Rates are as follows:
Photoshoot (local)    2 hours  =  $100.00  (All Prices Are Negotiable Pending On Assignment).
Photoshoot (Your Location)    =  $100.00 per hour  plus expenses.
Aviation Shoots (Air to Air)      =  $150.00 per hour plus photo plane and expenses.
Thank You,
Randy Morgan
