The creativity and diversity of my images speak for themselves. A photographer for many decades, I enjoy the spontaneity of the "moment", what I "see" at any point in time. The subject matter is irrelevant. The "now" is what it's all about. Even when working with models, I'll have a basic, general plan, but the unintended will always happen. Photography remains, forever, exciting. I have often been asked about my studio name. The name is in honour of one of my pets, a pedigreed Blue Cream Persian cat, A Bit Blue. I brought him to the US, but he tragically died from Arizona desert predators. Thanks for visiting my portfolio. Please review some of my projects below:
(1) KRYSTELLA ATELIER OMP#94880 (an emerging Arizona clothing designer): PAID – At this time I am looking for models who are on the smaller side ( 5-2, 100/120 lbs, 34B/C). The photos are for this designer's website, catalogues and promotional material. There are also 2/3 occasions each year for modeling at in-store functions, etc. Because of costs, the likely model will probably live in Arizona, traveling to Scottsdale. This is an on-going project. I do not have a makeup artist available for paid shoots, but one can always make a plan.
(2) TFSI: I own & operate TFSI, a company in the design/interior architectural businesss, fabricating/installing expensive countertops and surfaces (quartz, granite, marble, concrete, copper, stainless, etc.). I need models of all shapes & sizes on a regular basis to adorn/accent particularly beautiful installations. The photos are used on our website and as point of sale material.
(3) TFP POLICY: I like working with individuals who pique my interest and who are interested in doing different things to show the diversity & creativitiy in my work. I can help you build your portfolio, going beyond traditional headshots and promotional photos. Models will receive high resolution, edited images on a CD of all their sets normally within two weeks. The rights to use these photos will be shared. I prefer to shoot outside, early in the morning on weekends and during any day of the week in the afternoon using natural light; I also like traditional studio shoots. TFCD sessions are limited, but please feel free to request such an effort.
