I am not currently taking trade for portfolio projects. I am willing to discuss trade for quality content for Patreon, but only within my immediate area (Metro Detroit, specifically the Dearborn area) for those with access to a location or willing to rent the local studio. You can find more information about my expectations when shooting for Patreon on this page.
I encourage you to read this before contacting me about shooting trade/TF. If you are interesting in hiring me for a project or shooting something not listed on this page please head over to my Booking page.
Before We Start Chatting… There are a few points that I’d like to put here first before I get into things as these are important and non-negotiable.
- I do not drive (but do have access to reliable transportation) so all trade shoots need to be within 30 minutes max of the Dearborn, MI area.
- I do have access to a reasonably priced studio ($25 to $45 an hour) and there are a few more in the area that I’m not as familiar with as well.
- I am available Monday thru Thursday evenings after about 5:30pm to 9pm and on some Saturdays from about 1pm to 9pm. Sundays are rarely open for shooting, but I can try to make an exception if absolutely necessary.
My Expectations for Patreon Content
I am shifting my main focus to Patreon. This is what pays my bills and creates income for me. In this case we would be trading images that you would like to shoot in exchange for content for my Patreon. Depending on what you want to shoot that might mean shooting two different concepts (one for you/portfolio use and one for me) or, preferably, one concept we could both use.
If you’re curious about Patreon and how my shooting for it benefits you in our trade shoots, please consider reading this note I wrote for photographers on it.
What I am looking for in these shoots are images I can share on social media and on my Patreon. Most often I would ask for web resolution sets of photos (10 to 20+ photos). Watermarks (non-obtrusive) are fine and encouraged. I don’t expect a lot of editing on photos for Patreon, though you would, of course, free to do whatever you like.
Here are some of the styles I am up for shooting trade for Patreon content (looking for those who shoot at or above the level of quality in my portfolio below):
- Fine Art Nudes with those skilled with lighting – inspiration/examples
- Boudoir Lingerie & Nudes (preferably on location or a studio with a bed or couch) – inspiration/examples
- Natural Light Nude & Lingerie Portraits – inspiration/examples
- Vintage Themed Shoots – inspiration/examples
- And I’m up to talk about other ideas too.
My portfolio of images shared below accurately represents the quality of work I’m looking for and also shows some of the styles I’d like to do more of.
- I am quite comfortable posing fully nude, fully clothed, and inbetween.
- I am open to almost every style up to full nude (non-explicit) and do generally include at least partial nudity in my Patreon content.
- I am available within 30 minutes of the Dearborn area in Metro Detroit.
- I do not have my own shoot space, so we will need to rent a studio or use your space. I may be able to split the studio cost with you.
- I most often shoot evenings (6pm to 9pm) and weekends. I am not available during the day on weekdays.
- Stats: 4’10” ~90lbs, classical figure, 30B bra (can sometimes fit a 32 A/B), 25″ waist, 34″ hips
- No tattoos, only single ear piercings which I no longer use
- Pale, natural skin
- Long dark hair down to my tailbone (currently a dark brown to black ombre, tends to just photograph as dark hair)
- Blue eyes
- Natural “bush” above labia
- I can do basic makeup and can put my hair up if needed. If you want more, I do love working with MUAs and stylists and can recommend a few. I would be willing to split the cost of an MUA we agree on for a trade shoot.
- I do have several long vintage dresses, a few vintage wedding gowns, quite a lot of lingerie, stockings, garters, and a lot of other things I’ve collected. If you’ve got a look in mind, shoot me some inspiration in PM/email and I’ll see what I have.
- I would love to pose with live animals more and I am very comfortable around large mammals, snakes, and other reptiles.
- I do enjoy posing nude in nature if the private shooting location has been legally rented.
- I do have some pain/health issues. I have never flaked and I will absolutely let you know ASAP if I think this could affect our shoot (this has been extremely rare)
- I will be driven to and dropped off/picked up at shoots as I do not drive.
The best ways to contact me are by my email form here or by Facebook. Please remember to include a link to your portfolio and mention that you would like to shoot trade when you contact me as it makes the discussion go much faster.
