Welcome to the Free Photoshoot Contest!

Thanks for your interest in the photoshoot contest! Three winners will receive a free photoshoot and TEN hi-res JPG images. There is no catch. Just show up, relax, and you will receive your photos within 14 days.

Why am I doing this? I need your photo to improve my portfolio and I need practice utilizing the beautiful natural light in my new studio. You get free photos and I get practice and photos for my portfolio.

What kind of person am I looking for? You don’t need to be a model or a former beauty queen! The male or female I want to photograph is ages 19 to 99. If you’ve wanted to be photographed professionally but never had the opportunity, this is your chance!

Here’s how to enter. Email me a selfie and a couple of sentences indicating why you want to be photographed. Scroll to the bottom of this page and click on the email button. Entries must be received by midnight on June 30. You have nothing to lose and free photos to gain.

The fine print: Winners sign a simple model release form allowing me to use your photos. All photos must be taken in my Kalamazoo, Michigan studio. Remember, there is no catch or obligation. Click on the email button at the bottom center of this page right now!

It’s one thing to make a picture of what a person looks like, it’s another thing to make a portrait of who they are.
