Yes, my profile is long, but it should also answer almost any general questions you have about working with me so please read before contacting me.
I pride myself in being easy to work with, in having the ability to pose both with or without direction, and in having excellent communication skills before, during and after the shoot. I work well with all experience levels from the newest photographers to the more experienced, professionals. I try not to limit myself to a single genre and am open to a variety of concepts. I am also available to pose for artists of mediums outside of photography such as painters, sketchers, and sculptors.
AVAILABILITY: I am available only in the immediate Detroit area (including downtown, Ferndale, Royal Oak, Livonia, Dearborn, Dearborn Heights, etc). I can usually shoot evenings during the week (no Mondays), or on some weekends but mainly for very special projects. Other than that, I shoot almost exclusively at the SMP (www.smpcollective) and CAC group shoots.
My current focus, particularly outside of group shoots, is on creative, stylized, and/or unique trade projects that include one or more of the following: skilled MUA/H provided, working with a designer or certain other types of wardrobe, shoots for certain publications, shoots for promotional flyers/ads, bodypaint, shoots with live animals, and possibly other projects that would significantly add to my portfolio. In addition, I would expect any trade shoots to match or exceed the level of work on my MM portfolio, not just the photos on this site as I have posted work from my entire modeling career here.
I also occasionally participate in paid workshops where you would be able to shoot with me at any skill level and without being expected to provide photos for my portfolio. I tend to list those shoots on my Facebook page (linked below).
I look like my photos and will provide snapshots if you ask. My portfolio accurately shows the level of nudity I am willing to shoot up to, but I am willing to pose fully clothed or in lingerie as well. I do not shoot explicit, couples, or fetish video content that requires any touching. Fetish photography & video modeling depends on the concept.
I do have some wardrobe including vintage gloves, wedding gowns, stockings and garters, cute lingerie sets, dresses, etc. Ask if you want to know more.
I can do basic make-up and possibly other styles if you can provide a photo for inspiration/guidance. However, I love working with MUAs and strongly prefer that when one is available.
I can put my hair up in a braid, ponytail, bun, or simple up-do within minutes.
I generally have pubic hair of some sort, so if this is a concern please ask.
I do have some pain/health issues which have very rarely forced me to cancel a shoot. I have never flaked.
I do not drive so I will be driven to and dropped off at shoots.
As stated above, I am mainly focusing on selective trade shoots at this time. However, I may occasionally be available to book for paid work that does not fall into that range. My rates are negotiable and depend upon the budget for the project and how the images will be used. Therefore, I encourage you to let me know these things when you contact me so I can respond more efficiently to you.
I do also occasionally do trades for certain types of wardrobe such as corsets, fine lingerie, Victorian and other historic styles, latex, Gothic Lolita, and shoes. Any of these items would need to be discussed before finalizing the shoot.
If you are having me sign a release, it would save a bit of time if you could send me a copy to review in advance. I have never had a problem with any release, but I do like to read them over.
If you would like references beyond those in my port, let me know. I have done many, many shoots and have never been approached with a complaint ^_^
I accept all friend requests, pretty much, but if you are interested in working with me, please send me a PM.
Facebook - best form of contact
These are just a few of the people I have worked with and I mainly focused on MI members that I have shot with in the past couple years. I have done hundreds of shoots with at least 100 different photographers.
