Working with Models

New Terms for Exchange Arrangements

If you are interested in working with me (figure nudes or clothed), please contact me, But first read my Modeling terms:

As a Fine Art Photographer, I work with both medium/large format film and digital, and many images end up as alternative process prints.

I am a professional fine art photographer. Professional in the abilities and standards I hold. I no longer do commercial photography, so I don’t make a living doing this. I am retired and on a fixed public retirement budget.  In 2024-25 I am putting most of my financial resources into promoting and developing shows and sales in NYC, London, Paris and Milan, as well as costs for residencies in New York and France.  Therefore, I am mostly utilizing existing images from my vast modeling portfolio, and occasionally working with local models and a very few traveling models mostly for trade and/or travel expenses.  I completely understand if this does not work for you, and perhaps if I start making sales and money from my work, I will return to hiring models for photoshoots.  Right now I make ZERO income from this type of work, and the costs are expensive.

I have worked with over 100 models, and I pride myself on helping to create a safe, respectful and truly collaborative work environment.  I have worked with numerous models repeatedly.  Feel free to check references with anyone I’ve worked with!

I photograph everything from landscapes to still life to portraits and people. Photographing people is very rewarding, and I approach this with an artistic sense and with professionalism. My goal is to produce images that are beautiful, sensual, elegant, classic, sensitive, powerful, engaging. I like to work with natural beauty, or natural presence, which of course can mean different things to different people. And I like to work with natural light when possible. As a photographer, I am reliable and insist on good communication before and during the session.


Terms for Working with Models

Trade (Time for "Print")

I will consider working with you on a TF basis. You will be able to view the entire shot catalog, and receive (and help pick) a set of images that are edited. These images will be full resolution and with no watermark. You can use these images as you see fit, but with credit given at all times. You can use these images to make money (i.e. Patreon) or sell prints through a venue that is personally under your control. You cannot license these images out to another party for their use. I retain the ownership and rights to all images. I do reserve the right to ask you to take down images from a venue or presentation that is in conflict with what I do as a fine art photographer (i.e., placing images on a “porn” site).I often provide a small assortment of silver and alternative process prints sometime after the shoot.We have hosted many models at our home. 

Paid Arrangement

I am NOT working with models on a paid basis at this time. Exceptions are discussed upfront only. Assume we are working TF unless otherwise agreed. Images made on a paid basis CANNOT be used by you for profit or promotion, including any site behind a paywall such as OnlyFans or Patreon. You will receive only watermarked edits at about 800px long side for social media use.

Preferences (but not requirements)
As a fine art photographer, my preferences for models are as natural as possible.  What does this mean?
  • The minimal amount of makeup that you are comfortable with
  • Simple colors and patterns for clothes and garments (unless otherwise required by a particular theme)

​For Nudes:
  • Minimal or no tattoos (exceptions made case by case)
  • Natural hair (full or partial bush)

David has fast become one of my all-time favorite people to create with. He has an impeccable eye for light and classical aesthetic, and has a contagious calmness which makes it easy to feel present and engaged, resulting in images which are honest and beautiful.

He’s an artist in the truest sense and I can’t recommend him enough; if you have the opportunity to collaborate with David in any capacity… jump on it! : )

Bola Odejobi (not on MM)

David is a true artist and has great understanding of light. Every shot is well thought of and intentional, and you can see how passionate he is about what he does. He is an incredible person to work with – i was treated with respect from the second we began communicating. He also has a very calm nature about him, which helped me relax and this shows in the art we've created together. I also love the pace at which he works. Looking at our work together brings me so much joy and I look forward to working with him again.

Dakota Snow #3892380

"David is a true artist who has the utmost respect and passion for the craft. I loved working with him and would be honored to do so anytime in the future. Our shoot flew by and I felt respected and heard the entire time while having fun and feeling creatively free. He is extremely communicative and considerate. Setting a high standard for how our community can work together."

Eva_Luna #2001318

"David is wonderful! Sweet, kind, and completely professional. I especially love that the first shot of the day was me smiling and looking completely happy and relaxed - because I was. I highly recommend David and look forward to our next collaboration. :)"

Flos Lunae

Mr. Aimone is friendly, meticulous, creative, and professional. It was pleasant to create with him because he is open-minded and easy going. Looking forward to working with him again!

Madeline Reynolds #4225367

"David is an exceptional artist and exceptionally enjoyable to work with. He emanates a passion and energy for his craft, and his skill as a photographer is evident immediately. His thoughtfulness before, during, and after our shoot were above and beyond what is reasonable to expect. I'd recommend any model looking to elevate their portfolio or collaborate on a concept they've kept tucked in their mind to reach out to David."

Monique #749397 ****…

“David is among a very small handful of photographers I consider friends. We have been collaborating for more than a decade, creating some of my career’s most iconic images.
David is communicative and professional. He brings an incredible understanding of light into the scenario, but gives his subjects the freedom to move and emote freely. Creating an image is always a beautiful conversation.
Most importantly, I have always felt comfortable, safe and respected when in David’s company.

Aquila #4748420**

David is one of the first photographers I worked with when I began modeling, and he is still one of my favorites to shoot with. Gentle, encouraging, respectful, and flexible, I am so grateful for David’s help & guidance early in my journey, naturally causing me to set high expectations for professionalism and kindness just by being himself. David’s images truly express beauty and elegance, capturing so much of what I wish to help convey artistically as a model. I cannot recommend working with David enough!

Celina Bobina #2598753 **

I appreciated the attention to detail that came along with that experience."

Lynne #1735977**
