**Update June 2012**
NY girl starting a new life in LA!
Get a high end PROFESSIONAL model gone free-lance (I used to be with neXt as well as other top agencies overseas) for less than half the cost of going through an elite LA or NYC agency.
My day rate is usually between $250-350. But don't hesitate to contact me, smaller budget projects can be negotiated! (smile)
Please note absolutely no test shoots/ portfolio building. I have references upon request.

Hey whatz up, it's Michele or 'Miche' if you wanna go by the modeling stage name. I'm a professional model from Blo NY, who's worked the ranks of Toronto Canada, Tokyo Japan, Bangkok Thailand, and New Delhi India.
I also have published work that has circulated NYC, Paris, Milan, and Rome.
I like to think of myself as the the 'anti-model' of some sorts... I'm not all about fitting 'The Mold' of the perfect Paris Hilton looking model-clones that go running around in the Industry. In fact I've gotten in troubble more than once for wearing my converse sneakers and bob marley t-shirt to castings...lol. Not like I'll never do the model clothes thing, but I'm def all about standing up and being yourself!
I'm all in this for the 'art', photography, creating fantasy, and the movement of the human body are fascinating to me.
Fashion/ Editorial is my forte, I have the typical angular face for it... Although I'm versatile and I've done everything from TVCs to commercial catalogue print work. I hear that I'm fun to work with- real down to earth.
Note- sorry I hope one understands, but please don't contact me about TFP or testing. Only paid or tear sheet work please
Also NO nudes, IMPLIED nudes, or anything overly provacative or sexual.
