My Photoshop Portfolio
Passionate About Beauty • Passionate About Photography
Welcome to my Model Mayhem profile and portfolio. My name is Sheldon and I am passionate to create images that people will stop, enjoy, ponder and excite. I have been photographing almost everything since my brother introduced me to photography as a child. After many years, I have turned my eye to photographing people. The models I work with are amazing and without them my images are meaningless.
The human body is an art form. Beautifully crafted with fascinating lines and curves. Each model brings with them a unique enticement.
"Thank you! You are a fabulous professional photographer, and give great direction. Thanks for the wicked photos!"

“I really love the results and you were very comfortable to work with. I look forward in working with you again in the future.”

“Thanks for the great shoot yet again! I had so much fun! Can’t wait to see some pictures!!! It’s always a pleasure working with you.

**Please note that I do not shoot in a studio**
I find studios to be too confining and limited. I prefer to shoot on location and all photos in my portfolio to date were shot on location. If you have a question about a location that I have used in a photo and even from my Photoshop portfolio please feel free to contact me.
I am willing to shoot with a model TF* with the right creative concepts, ideas, look or styles. Please note that models shooting TF* with me must supply their own location and be part of the concept process. If you are model just starting out and would like to build up your portfolio with different looks I would love to work with you. But even though you are just starting out I will expect for you to work with me on creating your concepts. Please do not come to me with "What ever you think is best" or "I want a high fashion shoot" because both are too empty. Don't get me wrong, any strong concepts that we work on together will look gorgeous. When booking a TF* shoot please remember that paying work will come first.
Models working TF with me will receive a DVD of the shoot immediately after the shoot and a number of free edits or post-production Photoshop on decided upon photos.
**Those Hard to Find Locations**
Even though Calgary has a wide variety of locations to shoot in we are limited to a point to find locations that match and fit to our concepts and the weather to shoot in. With this in mind, I am able to create in post-production the perfect location to fit the concept. From a graffiti wall to an edgy rumble ruin to a gothic cathedral or fantasy setting. Ask me how this is done and how it can work with your concepts.
** What I Want and Don’t Want **
Foremost, I want the model to be comfortable with the photo shoot and me. If the model is not comfortable the shoot will not happen. I want to produce the best creative images possible for both the model and for myself. I am always interested in collaborating. I don’t want runway, basic portrait or fashion unless you can give that extra gorgeous twist to it. I will treat all models with respect and equality and will give the best possible photo shoot experience. I will produce the best creative and quality photos possible and I am always open to new ideas and collaborating.
