Mayhem # 1058789
I'm a burlesque performer/artist/writer/actor/whathaveyou. I started modeling when I was about 10. My father was a portrait photographer and used photos of me to promote his work.
Since then I've modeled for artists and photographers, sometimes for money, sometime for art, usually for promotional materials for my shows or art.
I'm very professional and easy to work with. I take direction well and don't have a problem holding a pose that feels uncomfortable/unnatural in order to get the right shot. My work as a performer has taught me a lot about hair styling and make up so I can do my own but I'm also very easy going and co-operative with stylists. It's your art so as long as you like the look, I'm happy to go with it. I also have an extensive wardrobe and am happy to give creative input if you want it (but only if you want it.)
I already know and work with a good amount of photographers and I'm very busy so I'm not really interested in unpaid work at this time. I'm mostly interested in print but will also model for drawing/painting and some video. I'm willing to do fetish and art nude shoots but am very selective about who I work with and what I do.
If you'd like to work with me send a message describing the shoot, where it will take place, how long you expect it to be, what the shoot is for (portfolio, book, website, paid website, etc) if costumes/hairstyle/makeup will be provided and what compensation you're offering.
I'm willing to travel if adequately compensated but be warned that I don't drive. I most often visit the DC/Baltimore area and have relatively good access to transportation when there so it's pretty easy to book me in that area.
