"If you are given the opportunity to work with this amazing, beautiful woman, don’t hesitate for a moment!
She is definitely in a class all by herself, and her ability to communicate her thoughts and ideas with me have been so beneficial; it’s truly a priceless trait she possesses. The speed at which she can comprehend and put into action any pose or idea I throw at her is also godsend! It’s been a blessing to find someone who will give there all, plus some, to get the shot (even in less then bearable weather conditions).
Above all, she makes the day so incredibly fun, and her wit, charm, and incredible sense of humor will keep you laughing and on your toes the entire time.
It has been an absolute privilege to work with her!"

"Hey your pics are awesome glad to see you working so hard, I want some of those signed so when you become famous I can say she was one of the best chefs I knew then they will look at me like I am fuckin insane haha"
My Letter of Recommendations:
Shaun Tia is one of my models, I would like to write a few words of praise for this young woman.
She is one of the best artists models I have had the pleasure to work with in a long time. I would call her a natural talent.
She is unselfconscious in an innocent way. In regard to her body she is like a child who has not been taught shame.
She is graceful and pure in her beauty and this quality comes through, reflected in the art I make with her images.
Shaun Tia is also aware of the necessity for good communication and punctuality, it is this sort of attention to
details which shows a professional attitude, uncommon in the industry of models in general.
I highly recommend her to any artist or photographer.
Shaun has always managed to bring a quiet femininity to her shoots. She's like a cat who quietly pads around the shoot-not speaking at all-and when she's up, shes a mesmerizing model to watch. She works it like no other model I've seen before. She has the beauty, gracefulness and elegant posture in every pose and is one of the best nude art models I've worked with. Her doll like face shows determination and the will to succeed. Shopping with her at times, I've learned she's an astute sifter of the thrift stores. She though is not shy of adding her own idiosyncratic twists. [... I] look forward to whenever I get the honorable opportunity to work with her. I adore this girl and her style. She's my bread and butter.

*** NOW THE GOLDEN RULE ***
If the MODEL stands to gain considerably MORE from a shoot than the Photographer.... Pay the Photographer.
If the PHOTOGRAPHER stands to gain considerably MORE from a shoot with the model, Pay the Model for her time.
If both the MODEL AND PHOTOGRAPHER stand on equal footing, call this a COLLABORATION and both of you enjoy the benefits.
