Internationally published photographer, visual artist, designer and the Editor-in-Chief of Strange Beauty Magazine. Now taking on new clients. ✔The best and more reliable ways to reach me are e-mail at DJJarak@gmail.com or Facebook at www.facebook.com/djjarak. I check my messages every few minutes. I receive many, so it might be a day before you hear from me in some cases.
✔I will work for anyone with the exception of those who wish me to take part in projects involving vulgar “adult entertainment” visuals and hate groups.
✔I have no particular style by default. I’m open to anything from emotionless professional portraits to wild surrealism and blood chilling fantasy/horror. I am an uber-geek, so I love the sci-fi stuff too.
✔I will allow escorts, but please, keep it under three (3) not including yourself. If you arrive with more people than I’m prepared to deal with, it could be a problem.
✔If you require a creative team (make-up, hair, etc.) that can be provided, but it will cost extra. Those I work with are fellow freelancers and work for themselves.
✔While working as a freelance photographer, artist and designer, I’m also the Editor-in-Chief and Editorial Designer of Strange Beauty Magazine. If we are in need of creative talents for an upcoming editorial, we may contact you. We are a non-profit publication, so payment would most likely be impossible. If you reject the offer, your response will be respected.
✘No flakes. If you book a shoot or meeting with me, I will expect you to arrive no earlier or later than 15 minutes. If you think you might be late, contact me ASAP.
✘Do not contact me asking for paid work. I am an experienced professional and have paid my dues. If you wish to work with me, my rates are far lower than they should be and I am flexible. Any such requests will be ignored. I may pay models from time to time, but only when they can add to the quality of my portfolio or I have been asked to pub a team together for a project. I do often befriend those I work with and may be flexible on what I charge them, but please don't expect it. Just be glad when it happens.
THE PAYMENT PROCESS
A non-refundable deposit of fifty percent (50%) US of your total cost will be required before I book our session. This is not negotiable. You can pay via PayPal or in person. Cash only. No checks. This assures that I won’t be at a loss if you choose to not show up. After you have approved the processed marked photos and pay the remaining 50%, you will receive your full size photos within 24-48 hours via e-mail. They will be print size so you may print them at your leisure. I suggest Vista Print for the best results and price.
