About Me

Moderator Note: If you have a site issue or a need to report a problem with another member, please do not privately contact me.  I would love to help you, but it would be a violation of Model Mayhem policy for me to do so privately. Please contact us here and I, or another moderator will help you as soon as possible.  Thanks.

My name is Michael Kountz. 

I'm here to collaborate with photographers, models, make up artists, animal husbandrists and wardrobe designers to create something new, interesting, and to most of all; have fun. 

$60.00 bucks an hour gets you headshots, portraits, general studio work, on location work, commercial work, and one of those lollipops from Mexico with the tequila worm inside of it.  I'm cheap!

The following lists are here to provide available references.

Sometimes even with their permission.

When leaving comments or tags, remember:

1. Avoid repetitive use of terms like "Psychiatric help."

2. Please do not call me names that I do not know the meaning of.

3. You do not even know my mother.

Escorts are conditionally ok by me.  I have yet to have a negative experience with an escort.  That said, getting in the way, disrupting the shoot, severe gastrointestinal incontinence, exploring off limits areas, rummaging, and cow-tipping will all be considered sufficient means to end a shoot early. 

I will no longer give out unedited images.  It's my name attached to those pictures, I want to make sure that everything circulating out there is at its best.  That said, expect two to three edited web images per look.  I can print, but the exorbitant cost of ink and outright greed lead me to charge a *very* cheap fee for prints. 

If you have an idea you consider to be mutually beneficial, and want to throw it out there as a tfp request, go for it.  Just don't contact me with a request for tfp and nothing else.  The end!
PS:  Karl Blessing and I are the ones who brought you the scary cat.  True story.
