If you are interested in working with me:

1. Read my Statement of Work

2. If you are a Model, read my Shoot Agreement (aka "Model Release"). You will be asked to sign it before we shoot. This Shoot Agreement references my Standard Terms and Conditions document so the Shoot Agreement can be kept to a one page document, so  be sure to review that as well to make sure you fully understand the terms and polices that you are agreeing to if you want to shoot with me.

Please read these documents before contacting me about shooting it will save us both from wasting time with needless back and forth if you see something that you don't like or agree with.

Please DO NOT solicit me for paid work. If you do, I will quote you back my rates and you make my shit list for wasting my time.  If you want me to consider hiring you for a shoot, have a stellar portfolio and place a casting and if I'm interested I'll contact you. Please don't create a situation where I will have to show you how much of an asshole I can be.

Thanks! smile

- Feel free to ask any questions if you are interested in how I did a shot or processed images. Too many of us are too selfish in not sharing and allow each of us to grow. I am more than happy to tell you how I worked an image.

- I am also available for private one-on-one meetings. $150 gets 3 hours of my time and you can pick my brain about anything.

- My "Muse Collective" list consists of Models that I desire to have a continual working relationship.  These are the Models I most want to shoot and have my full endorsement because they exhibit professionalism, skill and ability. In sum, these are Models that you want to shoot and are "fee worthy."

Imagination and creativity are life gifts make this life bearable and to give us hope for what is possible. The courage to risk and commit when coupled with the discipline to follow your convictions are what yield the art we seek.

Thanks Model Mayhem for the opportunity to share some of my body of work.

"Rodney has a great sense of style and took some beautiful shots. His wardrobe for the photoshoot was classy and sensual. It was fun working with him, and I am looking forward to working together again!" Read less

"What can I say other than Rodney is one of the most amazing photographers I have worked with. I have modeled for him, and as a budding photographer way back in 2007, he taught me some invaluable tips and explained some of the hows and whys of photography and equiptment. I carry many of these lessons to this day. When I first heard from Rodney, I was heading down towards DC to meet another photographer who then became a friend. Rodney called asking if I would like to shoot, and I told him I couldn't because of my prior commitment. Upon hearing this, my friend said, "Heck no! If Rodney Mickle ask you to shoot, you do!!!" So I did, and I never looked back. Soon after, I saw Rodney again at a MM gathering in DC, and later that night, we shot a "chair" series in the middle of a back alley. Talk about a fun and productive shoot! If you have the ability to photograph for Rodney, get advice from him, etc., do so. You won't regret it!" Read less

"I worked with Rodney on a recent tour to the USA and had SUCH a fantastic shoot! It was my first time travelling to the US during a very short notice business trip- and I thought it would be such a shame to not work with a few photographers whilst I was in Washington DC- so I did! :) Rodney very kindly answered a very short notice TF casting call that I posted on another photography website- and the date was set! I was understandably nervous being in the US fir the first time on my own- it was also during a very testing time in my life- but I am SO glad I went with my gut instinct and spent one of the spare days I had on the trip with Rodney. When I first met Rodney he was instantly welcoming, very respectful and professional. He kindly collected me from my hotel and drove me to his lovely home where I met his family and felt very comfortable. We shot a series of fashion to art nudes in his home studio and I really loved the results! He also shared the imags with me very quickly. On top of this his family were an absolute pleasure and it would be so lovely to work together again in the future! Highly recommended to all- thankyou for making my first trip to the US so memorable! Helen x" Read less
