Hey everyone!

Hope this post finds you all very well. Are you as ready for Spring as I am?

Alright, SO...

I've been hinting at this for awhile and am thrilled to be able to finally make it happen.

Over the last few years I've had so many messages on every network from people inquiring about my rates on things like weddings, family work, senior portraits, modeling portfolios, boudoir, maternity, engagement, musician/album work, personal shoots, or even conceptual (as you've come to know of my style) etc... only to find out upon my reply that I no longer shoot commercially and work (almost) exclusively for myself as an artist & writer.

While that is still (primarily) true, I've done some rearranging of my schedule and would like to offer the opportunity for one person (or a group) the opportunity to win a FULL DAY, on location photoshoot w/ not only myself, but also a wonderful creative team of hair & makeup artists for whatever concept you've created w/ an in depth consultation w/ myself to make your 'dream shoot' into a reality. I would like to give one person the opportunity to get those shots you've always wanted. Again, I don't typically offer my services to the public, but thought this would be a really fun thing to do over the spring/summer months. Can you imagine a dreamy woodland portrait of yourself or a wistful shot in a moody field? Do you want to be photographed but don't have a concept? Worry not, because I have a whole book full of them ;)


(Sample works...)

So here's the fine print and further details:


*$3.00 (USD) to enter.

*This offer is open to anyone, worldwide.
-Within the continental USA, I will travel to you! (unless of course you'd like to travel to me & my locations)
-Outside of the continental USA, you will have to arrange travel to my location (usually MN | Midwest, USA)

*Entrants must be at least 18 years old to enter OR be prepared to have parental accompaniment and permission to shoot.

*Entrants may choose to submit more than once via the form below to increase their chances of winning. 1 entry = 1 chance to win. 2 entries = 2 chances, etc...

*Winner will receive one on location photoshoot, photographed by myself.
*Winner will receive hair & makeup via a creative team of hair/makeup artists.
*Winner will receive in depth consultation before shoot (in person or via telephone)
*Winner will receive 15 processed, high res. images, personally & professionally retouched by myself.
*This offer runs beginning today (3.18.2010) and will run for exactly 3 months.
*Winner will be drawn at random & announced June 19, 2010. You may enter until June 18, 2010 @ 11:59 pm (CST)
*Winner will be contacted via email, so please be sure to include all contact information.

And that about wraps it up!

If this is something you are interested in, I encourage you to enter. I'm incredibly down to earth and very easy to work with. I wanted to extend this option to the public to celebrate art and the ideas we all have as people. If you have that idea in your head you've always wanted to execute, don't be shy... It's my job. We can make the shoot as extravagant (within my budget) or humble (for those of you that are shy and don't like all the hoopla) as you want.

Enter this contest below by clicking the "PAY NOW" button and follow the prompts.

Best of luck! I look forward to collaborating with one of you!

Wish this opportunity would have come at a later date! I'm working on making physical changes to myself in order to have a healthier life for myself and my daughter! This is something I want once I reach my goal weight! Good luck to the everyone in the raffle! It will be cool to see the final product.

I really wish I could enter... Collaborating on a photoshoot with you would be sooooo amazing. I am a HUGE fan of your work. Although, I do live in Canada and I'm aware the contest is worldwide, I cannot afford the expenses if I were to win. I wish you all goodluck! Hope this is an amazing experience for you Ashley.
