MORE PHOTOS TO FOLLOW
MODELING STATUS: Professional (Freelance)
I've been modeling in print and runway since 2007.
Did a little acting since 2009.
Let's get evreything straight. ALL OF ME, IS ORIGINAL. THEY ARE ALL REAL. MY FACE, MY BODY, EVERYTHING; THEY ARE REAL. My skin colour is the way you see it on the photos; pale. My eyes, they are black, with double-row lashes (so please don't apply any more mascara) I've got an rare-exotic look, and yeah, I look like Angelina Jolie and Gia Carangi (That's where they got the stage name, some photographer in smart pants gave that name.)
I'M NOT UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF ANYTHING (during the shoot or after, STOP ASKING "are you high?" BECAUSE I AM NOT AND I'M NOT PLANNING TO, NOT EVEN CURIOUS.)
I'm a mixed European-Latin-Asian blood (English-Mexican-Filipino). I've done ramp and print modeling these past few years. It includes, Modern, Classic, Retro, Dance (stills and video), Underwater (my favorite), sports, glamour, couple (romantic, artistic), swimwear... and the list go on, sometimes, i don't even know what on earth it's called ('coz it's something that the photographer or someone in the 'creative department' just thought of)
This is simple, just be clear, tell me exactly what your project is all about; your theme, your concept, what the project is for, etc., etc. So that I'll know who am I to become for your project. I don't want to be shocked esp. I don't want my client to be shocked. I don't want to be in the "I thought..." situation, and not knowing what to do next (that's such a waste of time). Bottom line is, I just enjoy it.
PERSONAL POINTS (That I don't want to skip, 'coz I tried to skip these before, but, it caused some stir and fuzz):
In fashion, basically, on this industry: You don't have to be beautiful. Fashion is NOT CULTURE. IT IS ADVERTISING PLUS ART AND TECHNOLOGY. Therefore; the model and the photographer should be at "the moment". Because, being at the moment is everything in fashion, photography and modeling. You can't just grab some model and say, "hey let's shoot! stand there!" that's not the way it goes.
Though, words are not important, and it's not even encouraged. What should be said, is suppose to be seen in the photos. Better yet, the product, or the outcome, how the photos will/might look like, or even how you visualize it. That's how I work most of the time. Attitude, Flare, Movement, Details.
Especially now-a-days that most of the models are thin, tall and blonde. They pose, give a look. But, I'am different. I move. I'm tall. I'm not that thin, especially, I'm not blonde. What makes me different is: I AM ME, I'm not the kind that "Oh look at that model! I'm a model as well, therefore I have to be like that." Just like everybody, I have my preferences, self standard, etc., whatever you want to call it.
I'm not the pretty model who just smiles and pose for the camera for the sake of who knows what. I'm doing my best to portray whatever your eyes wants to see and your senses wants to feel.
"EVERY PHOTOGRAPH HAS A PROMISE. IF THE PROMISE IS FULFILLED. THAT MAKES THE PHOTOGRAPH GOOD. BUT WHEN THE PROMISE IS BROKEN. THAT MAKES THE PHOTOGRAPH GREAT. BUT WHEN THE PROMISE IS SEX... WELL, YOU HAVE 'SOMETHING'"
But, it doesn't mean that, there's sexual intercourse of any form, it's just the look of sexuality. The promise of something is THERE. (makes sense? it did to me.)
Most people don't get this the first time, and it causes argument. Nude are photo/artwork that shows/promises sexuality/eroticism without the literal sexual acts. When you see the outcome, the product, sexuality is evaporating from it but without the need of literal sex. For example the face, the eye contact, body language, now in body language, it doesn't need sexual touches; masturbation. It just shows. While porn, on the other hand is different, It is the complete opposite of what Nude is trying to portray. Porn, is showing the animal side of humans, the bestiality of human nature (sorry for the word, and I don't mean to offend anyone).
To make it short, Nudes are photographs/artwork that you can personally show to anyone of any age, even to your own mother and father with pride and no malice. While Porn, I bet, you won't even dare show it to anyone of your relatives, or simply to anyone that might recognize you.
That's how I mostly do it. Simple, Sexy, Sophisticated and Mysterious. I add a little twist. I want the photograph to give the "WOW" expression when somebody sees it.
Let me explain it a little further, for example, you see a picture of a girl, her lips pouted to a kiss with a happy eyes, her make-up is bold with red lipstick. What does it look, and what do you feel when you see it? the usual response would be: "She's cute" "Nice picture"
But, here's what I'm talking about; If the girl's make-up is simple, perfectly defined eyes, hot pink lipstick, her lips pouted to a kiss, she raised a brow then, close one of her eyes portraying a wink. What comes out? Something out of the ordinary, there's something in it, something that's shouldn't be there because of the way her make up was done, but still, it's there. The usual reaction that comes out of the audience upon seeing the picture would be: "WOW" "Sexy" "Foxy"
I do nudes; ARTISTIC NUDES that is, but NOT PORN.
DON'T BE RUDE. PLEASE. (Why so bitter?) Smile!
I DON'T DO PORN FLICKS!
It's reasonable, I negotiate when possible. I do exchange deals if and only if it'll benefit me, because i'm damn sure, it'll benefit you.
And yeah... I load a very few picture here. Because, I don't want to post bunch of photos from a single shoot, with the same outfit, just with different angles and facial expression. Well, what's the difference? NOTHING.
In case you want to collaborate or want to ask on something. I included my contact details.

You can also visit my facebook page (where some photos can be found)
and my other online portfolio
More photos are available upon request. These are my personal choice from my stash (these are few of the best). I didn't post them all, (I said it already... on the previous paragraph.) The appeal is: "man, don't you have anything else?" or "Is that the best you can do?" I DON'T LIKE TO HAVE THAT IMPRESSION BECAUSE, I'M NOT LIKE THAT. I do follow instructions but, I put my own style on them.
b bye! LOVE YOU!
