About Me

Update: i will not be on here much so please contact me through FB here: or my Page on FB here:

Hi Mayhemers! Keith here, My website: I love being creative and trying new stuff and pushing the limits.

Im looking for Creative people interested in shooting for on location Fashion/High Fashion, in studio for Digital Art and soon Studio Fashion/High Fashion

Please be honest when i ask about experience. I will ask for your portfolio. ANY Professional photographer that has been doing this for any length of time can tell your experience, and that conversation gets awkward quick if you're not being honest.

Fashion/ High Fashion: Looking for experienced Models only on TF.

Digital art: Modeling experience is not essential but helps because its more roleplay based. I choose models for digital art based more on looks and versatility to fit my concepts. Also if you can bring ideas to the table, lets talk..I love collaborating
Experience with weapons is a big plus for digital art
Beginning models, Portfolio starters, training i do Charge for.

• Im a professional Photographer....NOTE: any paid work comes first and gets priority and may cause the cancellation of any TF work but i will reschedule the work as soon as possible
• I do not shoot nudes or implieds as a standard EXCEPT in rare cases..for the digital art concept. IF we do, then no private parts will ever be exposed in any of the art that i do (examples in my Portfolio). I use shadows or remove all private parts for my images. I don't shoot nudes for the sake of seeing you naked. It must be a strong concept and the "implied" is never the focus. I'm here to tell a story or create and idea for a story in one image. I'm NOT here to turn you into an object.
I'll consider it after a clear idea is presented and collaborated together on. I WILL NOT SHOOT INEXPERIENCED MODELS FOR THESE CONCEPTS..

• Local Models: We will always meet at least once (typically at starbucks) so we both know who we are working with. I Find that shoots go much better when you get to know the person your shooting with BEFORE you step into the studio. This is where we start planning concepts also and get the ball rolling

I love collaborating with other artists. I want to work with people that have ideas and concepts and are willing to put as much work into it as i do. Time, Resources etc. so if you want to work together on a project, bring the ideas, creativity, resources to the table and we'll create something awesome. Im very thorough in designing a shoot. THIS APPLIES NON MODEL PEOPLE AS WELL..Hair and makeup artists, someone who wants to bring an idea to life, etc.
• IF we do something such as cosplay for a real life character that already exists, i want it to look as close to that character as we can get it the physical look of the model.
• Example: Underworld You dont have to look like Kate Beckensale (though pretty much a guaranteed shoot) but you need to have the same qualities. Dark Hair, thin, soft but angular features, the legit outfit, not a thrown together home made outfit.
• I'm not here to fund your idea. In alot of cases if the idea is good, ill invest WITH YOU in the idea, but i will not fund everything for you so if your idea costs. You need to bring those resources for that idea and i'll see what i can do to improve on or add to.
• If i dont think i can pull it off or simply don't want to, i'll tell not shy about not wasting our time. I do have a very open mind..just because something has been done before doesn't mean it can be done better, but we need to work a better vision..if its been done to death i probably wont do it.

Im Big on communication and planning. Texting or Facebook is a must but when it's close to shoot time I'll need to be able to speak with you directly for planning. IF YOU CANT TALK TO ME ON THE PHONE THEN IM NOT YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER. I understand there are lots of worries but I believe my work speaks to my professionalism and I don't have time to convince you of that...If you need references i can provide plenty.

Everything i do is TF... UNTIL it sells. I do custom book covers for author and if you are chosen as a model either before we shoot, or if our present or past work winds up being on a cover you get 50.00 for each cover... until my price goes up, as i get more you get more.
• What i post on FB is a 72 dpi file you're welcome to download to use for your portfolio
• you CANNOT sell my DO NOT own the copyrights.

Published work is on a case by case bases. You cannot submit my work to magazines. Tell me the magazine and ill make that decision. I do not submit to local/magcloud publishers. It needs to be a high profile/reputable magazine to be published.

Digital art images take hours...literally to do 1 image so you wont see a great deal'll see some periodically throughout the year, but all paid work comes first, which slows things down more. Plus i work alot so things are slow.

If you stand me up…I wont consider you again. I confirm every shoot the day of. IF I DO NOT GET A CORRESPONDING TEXT BACK THEN THE SHOOT IS OFF. IF YOU ARE MORE THAN 15 MINUTES LATE to an appointment or a shoot. Everything is cancelled. If im willing to donate my time and resources to you, I have a huge respect for you, your time, your creativity....please respect mine as well.

If you've reached this point, and are ok with everything ive said here, we might have a chance at something great!!!
