Wichita, Kansas Commercial + Editorial Portrait Photographer
BE A PART OF MY NEXT

PORTRAIT PROJECT

Just for my Facebook friends, so shh…

I have a crazy idea.

Throughout my entire career, I’ve avoided photographing my friends. As a perfectionist with a crippling fear of failure, if I’m going to disappoint someone, I’d rather it be someone I don’t have to see again. This is how my mind works.

I’m tired of missing out on photographing the people I enjoy the most because I might be less than perfect. So, I decided to create a new project to change that.

“Friended”

I want to create one portrait of you, and my only goal is that it be unlike anything I’ve ever shot before. Purely experimental. Every image unique. Maybe it will be great, maybe it will be strange…I don’t care as long as it’s interesting. I’ve taken enough pretty pictures in my career.

All I need from you is your willingness to just go with it.

Yes, you.

Before the comments of “I’m not photogenic” or “I’m too old” or “I’d be awkward” or any of that BS start, I’m telling you right up front that I want to photograph YOU. If I wanted models, I’d hire models.

That’s not what I’m interested in (unless you actually are a model, in which case I do still want you for this project).

At last count, I had around 800 Facebook friends, and there’s no way I can photograph every one of you, so I’ll be opening and closing the project as my schedule permits!

Even if I haven’t met you (or especially if I haven’t met you), I want you to be part of this.

The Goal

From every person I photograph, I want to produce one print for my collection. Eventually I’d like to do a show. If it goes well, maybe more.

As a way of funding the “show and maybe more”, you’re welcome to buy a matted 12″x18″ copy of your print for $250. You don’t have to, but I’d sure appreciate it.

Want in?

Here’s all you need to know.

For my existing Facebook friends only.
You will need to sign a model release.
This isn’t a normal portrait session.
(I get to call all the shots)
This isn’t a model call.
(anyone that wants in gets in)
You won’t get to see all the photos afterwards.
I will have you answer a few questions ahead of time to give me ideas for your shoot.

That’s it!
Send me a Facebook message to get started.
