Straight Out Of The Camera
NATURAL ME, WITHOUT RETOUCHING (JUST A PUSH UP BRA, LOL)
Spending a weekend with my husband, aka: SW NUDE
I'm sorry, but I don't do any tfp.
When you hire me, please see me as an investment, like your camera gear (just that I will bring the captured image to life). Likewise, you are the one that makes it possible for me to travel and keep creating this work, so "Thank you!"
I promise not to waste your time and would love the same consideration. I'm extremely down to earth and 110% drama free. I work well with kind and creative people (with no big egos), and those with an open mind. I don't like negative talk about other professionals. Priority for me is to create art and have fun in the process - so please don't be afraid to contact me if you're serious about creating meaningful art!
I'm a spiritual person, so I give more to my shoots than just a pose. It's about a connection, a presence and a celebration of the gifts you were given and the person that you are. Nudity is natural and should be celebrated, not shamed. We were created nude. To your shoot I bring my spirit, creativity, energy, flexibility and passion.
With regards to references - please only accept them from those I've actually worked with, as otherwise things get confusing. If you're unsure, please contact me. If I declined to do a tfp or reduce my rates for someone I shouldn't receive a negative reference in return
I don't shoot glamor anymore. This is because I want there to be focus on the artistic nature of my work and not about enticing the viewer with a flirtatious look or suggestive pose. Needless to say, I don't do any blatant open leg/crotch shots. I do, however, pose with a comfort in my own skin (i.e, legs are never clamped and awkward!) but I always pose artistically and I have a neat coverage of hair, which allows for cool poses without showing anything. I get asked a lot to pose with other models but I seek to present my work as a solo artist, connecting with the photographer. I find that duet shoots can often misrepresent the model's intentions and I don't like bad surprises, so I won't do duet shoots.
I won't ever shave for a shoot, so what you see is what you get. If the shaven look is more to your taste, there are plenty of other models out there that will suit you better.
I'm originally from the south west of England and now reside in the beautiful south west of the US. Despite my location, I do travel a lot out of state, as well as internationally to the UK and most of Europe. (My husband willingly sends me back, so I keep my accent
). I have family in Miami and Peru, so I frequently flock to these areas.
I'm a trained dancer, with a background also in choreography and acting; affiliated with Lamda drama school. I'm very creative. I was born to perform and was told I was even dancing in the womb. Dancing, performing and choreographing, both on stage and to a camera, are my passions. When I'm not on stage performing, I'm releasing my creative energy in front of your lens.
I'm part French (inherited from my Great Grandparents), but I was born and raised in England. I'm all natural, with no enhancements, surgery, scars or tattoos. I invest money into keeping myself healthy and trim, so I can look my best for your shoot. I treat every shoot with a fresh attitude. You will always work with me at my best. I care about the work we're creating and want you to be pleased with the images.
I'm that crazy model that will do anything to create "that" image. Past shoots have included (but not limited to) shooting in the snow, underwater, up a tree, mountain or frozen lake in the Alps. I will be there and will bring my creativity, regardless of my comforts. (Hot chocolate wouldn't go amiss in snowy climates though)
Please don't feel intimidated by my work. I don't believe in 'levels,' I believe in creating great imagery, so if you are passionate about photography and open, then we'll have a great shoot, and you will surprise yourself with your hidden abilities. I always strive to bring out the best in those I work with. I treat everyone equally, and I do have patience when working with those who are new to the genre.
I have a lot of respect for fellow artists, therefore I prefer to not imitate work already created. Please don't bring a book of images you want to copy, as I find these types of shoots very boring. My mission is to always create something new - unique, expressive, and that which will grab the viewer to be remembered. I'm an artist, and at my best moving fluidly and giving a piece of me to each of my shoots. I don't like being treated like a mannequin in someone else's vision. I find those shoots very one sided and they don't inspire me. It's no problem if you have a general idea of how you want to photograph me, and where, but I'm comfortable in my own skin and can take you to the next level with my creativity, spirit and poses, so please take advantage of what I have to offer. But, if you tell me: "I like sensual moods" then I can give you sensual, or if you want to throw an emotion at me, I can take it from there and develop the idea. Or if you pick a location for our shoot that you know has potential for the look you want, then I can embrace that location. Or, if you want to do minimal prep work (as in, just picking a studio or location) then that is fine also. I am able to create with whatever I'm given. BUT - if you hire me for 8 hours and pick a field with nothing but grass, I can make the most of the location, but you will be wasting your money hiring me for 8 hours.
I can wholehearted recommend photographers I've worked with to any models - so please feel free to ask me about anyone.
I look forward to creating with you
THANK YOU FOR ALL THE TAGS, COMMENTS & KIND WORDS. I TRAVEL A LOT SO DON'T ALWAYS HAVE TIME TO REPLY TO EVERYONE, BUT I DO READ AND APPRECIATE EVERY SINGLE ONE. I WORK VERY HARD, SO IT'S NICE TO HAVE MY WORK APPRECIATED BY OTHERS. IT MAKES THE HARD WORK WORTH IT.... SO THANK YOU!
ON A SIDE NOTE, PLEASE DO AS I DID AND ADOPT AN ANIMAL THAT NEEDS A HOME. MANY ARE EUTHANIZED DAILY AND DESERVE A CHANCE: ANIMAL SHELTER AND ADOPT AN ANIMAL
ALSO PLEASE "CATCH, NEUTER & RELEASE" ANY STRAYS YOU FIND, TO HELP CUT DOWN ON THE FOREVER GROWING ANIMAL POPULATION. THEY ARE NOT ADOPTABLE AND DON'T DESERVE TO DIE. THIS TECHNIQUE IS THE BEST SOLUTION. I HAVE DONE THE SAME TO OVER 20 STRAY CATS IN MY NEIGHBORHOOD: INFO ON CATCH-NEUTER-RELEASE

: "...To quote the photographer, Paul Markow: 'Beautiful women are a dime a dozen..you can find them on any street corner..but a woman that can perform in front of the lens - that is a rare find.' Katy is a rare find - she can perform in front of the lens..."
"It was a pleasure to meet and work with you. You are truly an amazing person... a beautiful and talented artist with a creative mind, a vivacious spirit in addition to possessing a generous and kind hearted soul you are what all models should aspire to be"
: "You meet many people over time and they just fade away, then you meet Katy just a beautiful person, very sensual woman who can laugh and bring a smile that will last even when she has left. Katy you are very special in who you are and what you do, you truly created some amazing art when we worked together .. thank you Katy till next time ,,phillip
: "Katy is the embodiment of the fine art model and artist. Beauty, form, grace and strength are her obvious attributes, but she is also creative, self driven, and charming. Katy is a mentor for aspiring models and has set the highest of standards of what a model and artist should strive towards.Thank you for coming to Montana, your more than welcomed to stay again and again".
Katy_T - a force of nature... You are amazing, you are the bond that ties the artistic world together. You fill the voids between structures and add your form & beauty to the magic that is photography. I had the pleasure, honor, thrill and good fortune to shoot with Katy. I have not been the same since working with her. I feel that my own Artistic Vision will never be the same. From the beginning until the end I felt like I was in the presence of a 'Force of Nature,' Intelligent, Driven. An artistic partner - alive with ideas - not posed. She searched every moment of her movements for the perfect position. Between whatever objects she placed herself or any surface that she attached herself to - she became the force tying it all together in a composition of beauty - simple, elegant. ~~ Katy T - Thank You! A chance of a lifetime".
