First of all, relax. Literally the worst thing than can happen is some bad pictures, so there’s no reason to be nervous. For your first shoot, there’s a few things you should be prepared for…. Bring your ID. I have no choice but to check and make sure you are over 18. Feel free to bring anything you think will enhance a photo. Jewelry, sporting goods, unique clothes, anything you think looks good. Bring your best fitting pair of jeans. […]

I do whatever possible to make the travel easier for models who wish to work with me. I am located in Hazleton, PA, easily accessible from Interstates 80 & 81, as well an the Pennsylvania Turnpike.
