I am always looking to expand my portfolio and try new concepts. If you have an idea you want brought to life, please bring it to me and we can work together to create your vision.
My current wishlist consists of:
- another Boudoir Session I can post,
- a Beach Swimwear shoot,
- a Pool Swimwear session.
There is a project that will take multiple models. The idea that's been kicking around is a silhouette of varying body types. Preferably, this would be a nude project but I am willing to work with your level of comfort . There are no photos created at this time (2/2019) but I would like to line up a few people for Spring and Summer.
Also, a long time ago I photographed a lot of cars and this Summer I want to do more. I really dont care what your vehicle is as long as it is special to you. It may become another heading on this site or become a completely different entity. We will see how it all works out. Take a peek at my old automotive page at Automotive Imaging by Michael Putorti. (I think this may have been a project for an HTML class I took a long while ago.)
