Hi, I am Gerald Moncrief. I am presently living in the beautiful NorthWest but Chicago will always be home. I am a hobbyist but I have been getting more and more exposures and opportunities to learn and grow. I have had the pleasure of doing stills on independent film sets, events and weddings. However my pleasure is shooting new models, mostly women. I love working with people that have never modeled because once you get them comfortable in front of the lens they start to shine and that's when the shoot becomes fun. I heard that a photographer is not the one that gets paid but the one that can solve problems. I don't know if I am there yet. So for now, I'm just a hobbyist that really enjoys trying my hand at fashion photography. I am self taught so to speak, however, how can I take credit for all the things I learned when there were so many photographers that I watched their videos and I learned from them. I don't think I have a style and it takes me a while to really know what I want during a shoot. I have to see the clothing and the location before I figure out where I am going with it. So, hobbyist is a good name for me. I am a hobbyist, but I have been getting more and more exposure and opportunities to learn and grow. The only goal I set for myself in photography is to just keep learning. I joined Model Mayhem to get experience working with models and I must say it was fun I met many interesting people. I now have friends in countries that I have never even seen, as well as in one of my favorites places, London. I love viewing the work of photographers that I respect and look forward to seeing there work and models that are as talented as they are beautiful.

A little about me.
