Hi Everybody, I am Craig Lawrence, photographer and owner of FightGuy Photography

My goal with all my work is to present dynamic, dramatic images. I'm in the business of telling visual stories. 

What you will find in our work
  • Heroes and Villains
  • Celebrations of beauty
  • Exploration of juxtapositions (that's a $5 word for "thematic contrast")
  • Cosplay, Boudoir, Portrait, and Glamour photography
  • Trips to local Cons and Festivals, including Magfest, Awesome Con, The Maryland Renaissance Faire, KatsuCon, Tidewater Comic Con, and many more!
  • Lots of people having fun. 
What you will NOT find in our work
  • Images celebrating debasement or disempowerment. 
  • Images of suicide/self harm. 
  • Subjects presented purely for titillation. 

Which is not to say that I look down on photographers that work with any of those sorts of themes, just that I know it's not for me. I present positive, empowering images. Be it a super hero shoot, a cosplay series, or a fashion shoot; all my work presents people at their best. 

We've got lots of ideas and lots of projects. Up there in the header you'll see a portrait from a studio shoot with Nikisha Rene, one from the epic Sucker Punched project (supporting RAINN), a photo from our Masque series with model Emma Earnest, and a shot from our Arcana series featuring GC-Chan Cosplay. We're filled with ideas and we're excited to get a lot more of these ideas into the real world. 

So why are we here, on Patreon? That's an excellent question! While I have a moderately successful commercial photography studio (Portraits, Cosplay Photography, Events and Glamour photography), I find myself frequently locked up by budgets when it comes to artistic work. A little grease in the wheels would let us do far more with our projects. 

What do we offere? Well, we don't have super secret nudes for our supporters. Sorry, we just don't work that way. I know a lot of folks here on Patreon are offering their higher level backers special, adults only photosets, and there's nothing wrong with that. I know, support, follow a lot of artists who work like that. It's just not our style. Hopefully you like the work we do and want to help us out. In exchange, we can offer discounts on our prints and merch, first looks, behind the scenes looks, updates, and a few chances for feedback on how things are going and what you'd like to see more from us. 

I hope you like what you see and consider our work worthy of your support. Thanks for checking us out!

Goals
48% complete
Excellent! With our first goal reached, we'll be able to book more studio time, freeing us from stressing about the weather and time of day. Pesky sun and clouds are difficult to plan for, so the studio can often be ideal for our shoots.
