I am based in Brooklyn, NY and Strasbourg, PA, but will travel for the right project.
I advertise and market myself quite a bit. Please understand that unless there is a contract or a deposit up front (or both) I will not hold dates for projects. Communication is the key. I’m sure you can understand that a lot of people do not follow up, or a lot projects “fall through” at the last moment. Holding dates in the hopes for such projects looses me jobs. I’m willing to work with you, but there has to be an understanding. I will always hold up my end once a deal is made.
Please do not pitch me a project with a pure back end deal or “this is going to be the next greatest thing.” In 25 years I have NEVER been paid on a back end. It might possibly be next best thing, but I’ve spent a lot of time and effort building up my equipment and skill set, and I’m a professional.
That being said, my rates are very flexible for the right projects. I work for myself and I love what I do, so make me an offer.
