Hey hookers. I’ll be live today @ 6pm on 91.7fm outcast Austin radio….Topics of discussion. . My photography BOOK„ THIS SEXY ART SHOW , who i WOULDN’T sleep with (NOT MUCH) and why hot dogs are soooo good after a romantic movie !! :)
You’re always posing the question “where and when does art turn into smut?” I think you’ve taken that fine line and blurred the fuck out of it Then found the secret combination that makes everyone crave more I guess that makes you AND your smut/art Pretty fucking smart ♥ JOHNNY GRIFFIN
this is what a photographer in San Antonio had to say about me…….
Well, I just checked my mail over at the old Model Mayhem site just now and was sent this and I quote: “Bring it on…..I’m going to ask you once.. and only once.. stop talking shit !!” This after I’d mentioned something not to him (the photographer up in Austin) but to somebody I’d messaged about possibly doing a shoot with. Apparenty the “model” relayed my opinion of this guy’s work to him. lol. Hey, I just call it as I see it. If you can’t take a little honest feedback and crit, FUCK OFF man. I know how you operate and you should be ashamed of yourself getting people to do shots they are are really NOT comfortble with doing. Hey, I’ve done anything from basic headshots to some very tastefully done artistic nude shots, but not for just the sake of doing nude shots. And NOT by pressuring people into doing those type of shots. Just because you have contacts with some talent agency, you think you can take advantage of people with the promise of getting them signed. Well, looks like I’ve struck a nerve. lol. And I’m not gonna name names here. I’m sure most people know who I’m referring to. Shame on you man. And I don’t take to threats well. I’m not going anywhere and I’ll call it as I see it. I always have and I always will. Don’t ever judge a book it’s cover. Well, I’m not sure what’s gonna happen since I don’t intend to edit myself or my opinion about this guy’s cookie cutter photography, so I guess I’ll find out. lol. Oh, and two great shoots today ( : A very full; and interesting day.
Hey Michael. Oh, I’m not letting it get to me, but apparently this photog doesn’t like any HONEST opinions of his work. I mean I could stand everybody up against a white backdrop, do some harsh sidelighting with a blown out white background and put my two initials on the top left of the shot too and bam; done. Repeat. And charge for it. But I try to do unique, fun concepts and give the shoots some thought. I try to do no charge TFCD shoots when possible,(most of the stuff you see in the FB albums were TFCD shoots) just donated my time to work with people to get in a fun shoot and get them a start on a portfolio; like what you and I did down in Corpus Christi with the beach shots. The guy’s just using his connection to the Wilhelmina Brown agency to get people to do shots they’d really not want to do. I’ve had people message me about that. Gives decent photogs a bad rap. By the way, I reworked some of those beach shots; NICE. I’ll email over some edits later today. Just been real busy lately. Doing more TFCD shoots; which is probably another reason I’ve caught the attention of this guy up in Austin. I’M willing to do no charge shoots and take whatever time it takes to get in a shoot. And even do some paid shoots, pay to the model when it’s in the budget. But as he puts it, “** I DONT PAY MODELS.. Please.. don’t get it twisted**
ILL BACK YOU UP MARK lol lets get the boxing gloves! hahaha

lol. Thanks Taylor. Well, we’ll see what happens. I’m still “talking shit” as he puts it, also known as speaking my mind and simply calling things as I see it and going by messages people have sent me about the guy. So what’s the short, pudgy little bitch gonna do, sick the gay mafia on my ass??!! lmao. No, he can continue to charge for mediocre, cookie cutter shoots and pressure people into doing certain types of shots they’re really not comfortable with doing and that they regret doing later. Hey, I’ve had people message me saying they were pressured into shots and they did them just because of who the guy is. And he gets away with it since he has all these big Austin connections. lol. Hey, whatever. No, I don’t have connections like this jackass does and nobody knows who I am, (Mark who??? lol) And that’s ok. I’ve met up with some great people the last year or so since I’ve been doing the portrait/model shoots as a part-time side project. I do the outdoor scenic landscape shots, wildlife shots and the product photograpy for catalogs as full time gigs. But I still get in about 4 model/portrait shoots a week. And I actually do most of those TFCD shoots; Time For photo CD. NO CHARGE in other words. Just like the one we did today. So I guess that’s another reason I’m getting attention. He apparently NEVER pays models and probably NEVER even does TFCD shoots; he ONLY charges. I’ve actually had lots of people make the short trip in from Austin to do a TFCD shoot. So this is probably why the nasty messages I’ve been receiving from this guy.
btw, really fun shoot with you today man ( : I like the MMA shots with the gloves the best I think.

Mark Alan I guess man. I ended up having to block him over on the Model Mayhem site and over here. Didn’t want to be getting anymore rude messages. I mean here’s this well-known photog dropping me messages and threats?! So I guess there must be some truth to it all; otherwise he wouldn’t even bother. And glad to hear you had fun with the shoot ( :
