Got paid work? Let's collaborate
My name is Jessica Yurash and I am an experienced model, actress, dancer, and puppeteer from the (South) San Francisco Bay area, creating success in all my endeavors. I am interested in all aspects of the business, and therefore I have been making art with various talented photographers and directors for years. I am excited to meet more artists! I have a range of passions, and I've been entertaining since I was 8-years-old, and I love every second of it. (Modeling since I was 14-years-old.) Including runway training and experience, despite being 5'6" at the time.
I enjoy the technical side of theatre as well, such as prop work, lighting, etc. For a while I was an electrical technician at TheatreWorks Theatre Company.
I am a model who does it for the artistic, collaborative, and enjoyable elements. I have a passion for photography and I use the knowledge I have of my body as well as skills in taking direction and modeling experience to make a concept a reality. I now have a notable amount of training in professional movement and performing, and am establishing more and more connections all the time.
Professionalism is my priority and I work very fast, efficiently, and freely. Thus, like most people I am very busy, and I am always willing to work out schedules until they fit.
I feel that I should warn you now, that while I have done artistic nudes, I am not the biggest fan of it. And honestly, I'm getting tired of Glamour. You are free to inquire, but know that I am very selective with whom I shoot with.
I am an optimistic hard worker who arrives prepared. I have officially COMPLETED Foothill College's comprehensive 2-year Acting Conservatory, and earned an Associate of Arts Degree in Performing Arts and Drama. I now work full-time for the California Theatre Center.
One more thing. PLEASE get copies of photos to me in a speedy fashion photographers. Flakiness is not ok.
