Elena O.

I always wanted to have the opportunity to shoot an alternative model, I love the tattoos, the way they dress and how sexy they are, even though I don't have a single tattoo on my body I love the art behind them, I've always drew and painted so I like the artistic part of the tattoos.
 I'm very happy that my first alternative model that I had the pleasure to shoot was Elena, great model, the way she moves for every pose is extraordinary and beautiful personality, I always emphasize the personality of the model because for me that is very important, the same way that a model should feel comfortable with the photographer, I believe the photographer should feel comfortable with the model so the photoshoot can be a success. I hope this won't be the last time that I shoot with Elena but I hope I can keep finding great models to shoot with.
I know you want to see the pictures, so here they are, enjoy......

Michelle C.

I had the opportunity to meet this amazing model, beautiful eyes, beautiful face, I gave a you a teaser few days ago so many of you already know what I'm talking about, but the most important thing for us as photographers when we look for models it's great personality and then if they can model, because if they know how to model but they have a bad attitude, the atmosphere gets very uncomfortable, but this is not a post about finding models so I'll live it there.
Michelle has a great personality and that made it very easy to work with her, so if you need a beautiful model with great personality booked her, I will not make you wait any longer to see the pictures.... Enjoy

Do you do your own retouching?

  Many people have been asking me that over the years, the answer is "YES", I learned Photoshop before I learned how to take pictures, so when I started taking pictures some years ago of kids, couples, weddings, quince's, sweet sixteen, well you get the idea, I have done it all, the easiest thing for me to do was to do my own retouching.
  I continue doing my own retouching because I want to control the whole process, after all, your pictures are the first thing people see, even before they call you, at least that's what I do when I look for models, if the avatar that they use is not what I'm looking for or it looks amateurish I don't even look at the rest of the portfolio.
  That's the reason why I do my own retouching and that's the reason why in a photoshoot I do not give the model all the pictures, I give the model only the ones that are the best and that have been retouched, how many pictures I give the model? well that is a topic for another post, but believe me, models are happy with the pictures they get...
 Below you will see examples of pictures so you can have an idea of what I can do, enjoy......

  The Last picture was taken but the amazing photographer Neil Van Niekerk, you can follow him at, I just did the Digital Composition.
