About Me

Please know that due to my travel schedule I am rarely on MM, do very few MM shoots, and do not keep this profile current. Upcoming travel schedule: touring the southwest (Arizona, Utah, and New Mexico), Miami Beach, NYC. Please find more current images on Instagram and let's keep in touch there: @ThigpenImages

For the past few years I've done a ton of travel, so my focus has mostly been on travel photography and many of my images are natural light with non-models that I won't post here. I also shoot the fashion, glamour, and portrait photography genres. I typically always have a great working rapport and professional relationship with the models that I shoot with and am always respectful when shooting. I am a no drama, laid back, easy going guy who just enjoys collaborating and making cool images. I prefer true collaboration on shoots: starting with pitching ideas, developing a concrete plan for styling and such, and finishing with a professional shoot with great images.

Working with Thigpen Images:
- I am a professional and act like such, respecting the model and everyone involved
- Have an easy going and fun, drama-free shoot
- Collaborate on shoots instead of taking "snapshot" images
- Processed images delivered within about 2-3 weeks

*** Winner of multiple MM Picture of the Day, Portrait of the Day, Fashion Photo of the Day, B&W Image of the Day, Best Model of the Day, and Photographer of the Day awards ***


Retouchers and Traveling models: Please do not email me. I have no interest in paying for retouching or modeling services. If you chose a TF shoot, send me an email and let's get something on the books. Please avoid friend requests or tags unless we have a definite plan to work together.
