I am no longer modeling full time, I might selectively accept a special couture assignment that incorporates my interests detailed below. Instead I am finally focusing on my own photography studio and my time these days is honestly spent more behind the camera ...

SHIVA SHARIFI PHOTOGRAPHY
Just for the record, I am a photographer turned model, not a model turned photographer. I began my photography path nearly a decade before some friends convinced me that I was pretty enough to get in front of the camera. I am really glad I did. It has broaden my creative experience in a way I can't express without writing an essay and I have so many fond memories of fantastic times collaborating with other amazing photographers.

I have been an alt pinup, fetish, fine art nude model for many years and no longer do nudes, please don't ask this of me anymore as I have plenty of images of this nature and looking to something more vintage couture. I am ok with possible topless as I know people like to photograph my tattoo as well and I am very proud of my natural chest for an artistic project. However, if you want to shoot suggested/topless with me, then I would like concepts and styling not just another fine art nude shot of me. I am especially seeking couture and/or vintage styling/accessories and images that thread along with these ideas.
I am very into CORSETS, so things that are Vintage, Retro, Victorian or Steampunk I dig right now, or anything Vintage inspired! I would gladly accept these assignments. It would be excellent if you are working with a designer or stylist. I also have an extensive collection of lingerie, corsets and other sexy bits, n accessories in my wardrobe collection as I have been a dancer for many years as well so I have a lot in my closet.
