I'm a country guy with a major city education (multiple certifications, fortune level MBA training with multiple specialties, mentored and trained by entrepreneurs, millionaires, and even a few billionaires) and a creative entrepreneurial mind.
I'm a photographer, as well as a graphic/visual and performance artist. I sing, act, draw, paint, design 2D and 3D graphics and objects, web sites, animate and cartoon, design comic and other characters, and much more. I do not limit my creativity and self-expression to one field.
I have been retired for the last couple years to recreate myself and my business, and am launching a business, personal, spiritual, and community development organization combining most or all of my passions in The Quantum Empowerment GroupTM.
I have a passion for art of all kinds, especially photography and graphic art (including digital painting). As an extension of this, I am launching an arts program to help artists become successful faster and easier than ever before.
I have a passion for personal growth and human potential, including PSI/psychic ability/intuition/Quantum EmpowermentTM. I am no longer trapped in "the box"/Matrix, and love helping people learn and grow, and achieve what they once doubted that they could accomplish.
I am here to share my visual and performance arts passion, help and team up with other artists and talented individuals, and enjoy the wonder and creativity of art and fellow artists.
Local Talent Search:
We are currently looking for artists on a national level and models locally (to start with). See our web site at www.KnightMC.com (soon to be changed as our name has, formerly Knight Marketing & Consulting) to get more information or sign up for your chance to be pick as one of our showcased models.
Photo shoot locations:
I prefer outdoor photography; which is less complicated, more abundant with creative inspiration than studio work, more peaceful (which helps less experienced models relax and enjoy the process) and more versatile. I sometimes accept requests for indoor/in-home/event shoots as well, but this is not my primary focus.
Modeling Talent Search specifics:
We are looking for models in Northern California, specifically the Butte County/Chico... and Sacramento areas if you're open to commuting to Butte County for a shoot. Photography is only the beginning, and only part of what we do.
Once of the things my company does is design marketing and branding materials for businesses. When you work with me, you're not just being photographed; you're being showcased. Companies come to us for their advertising. What does this mean?
Not only can we get you into the modeling business or launch you if you're just starting out, but we can launch you globally right away by offering companies around the world the ability to have you on their web site, on their brochures, and in their TV commercials and marketing presentations.
We are not looking for "Hollywood/runway" style skin-and-bones unhealthy models. We are looking for well-groomed, healthy individuals who like/want to shine and show off their style and presence. We understand that tattoos and piercings are a popular form of self-expression, and are open to non-traditional models.
We are looking for brains, not just beauty. Many modeling agencies are having trouble finding and promoting models who not only look good, but also can act as a spokesperson for a company to showcase clothing and other products. They want someone who interviews well and can speak with confidence.
Ladies, if you know what kind of clothing you like and why, and can communicate that to others in detail, this is the kind of thing we are talking about. If someone walks up to you while you are demonstrating a shirt or dress and wants to talk about the material and feel of the product, they want you to be able to carry on that conversation. There are other cases than clothing, but I figured this example would get the point across.
Also, we are looking for passionate individuals who aren't just looking for a paycheck, but actually enjoy modeling. Some people love being photographed, showing off their style and expressing themselves. I don't like just telling people to "stand here and do this". That creates very "dry" photos.
I want to showcase you, your personality, your flavor, passion, soul, talents. I want to help you realize your fantasies. In high school I often heard girls talking about how they always wanted to be a model, express themselves, how they would love to find an artist who would capture their beauty in painting or picture or drawing. I was too shy back then, but I've grown out of it.
My Passion and Plans:
I love people, I love creativity, I love inspiring and bringing out the essence of my models. Do you have ideas you would like to try? I want to work with you, not just sell you a shoot. I am looking for models to turn into paintings and other kinds of art. My creativity knows no bounds, and I want to experiment with you.
Over the years I have studied drawing, painting, and special effects. I want to paint/design sci-fi and fantasy landscapes and backgrounds and stick you in them, both photographically and in drawing/painting form. Many people fantasize about being the inspiration for drawings/paintings of mermaids, fairies, monsters, angels, heroes... and you can.
Let me give you an example. Go to my myspace page and look at my fantasy art album. www.myspace.com/quantumempower…
Would you like to be one of the characters in those pieces of art? Let me know.
I have been planning this for years. Not only do I want to photograph you or your friends, but I want to make art and sell it, and make us both money. Are you an artist who designs clothes? I need exotic/unique clothing for my models, both graphic designs and actual clothing to wear. Are you really good at designing landscapes or technologies? Let's work together to make masterpieces!
I'm launching many cooperative movements with my organization on a global level. Let's work together. Artists, models, photographers, web developers, marketing material designers: all of us can work together to create revolutionary art and uses for art that people just don't think of right now, mixing all forms of art in unheard-of ways and make good money doing it. Sound good? Let's do it!
