Hello! Please read everything that is in bold, it's important!
My name is Laura, I'm 19, and I live in Bellingham. I recently got a job and I'm trying to get a loan to go to school. My schedule is a bit hectic right now, but I still try to find time to schedule shoots
I'm new at modeling, but I'm very eager to do more and try new things. I hope to be able to connect with photographers in my area (as well as Southern California) that would like to work with me. Seeing as I'm new to this, I'm looking primarily for TF* shoots, but I will of course take anything paid as long as it's in my comfort range
. Since I am unemployed, I can only offer TF* work on my part right now, I don't have the funds sadly to pay for services.
My style isn't really confined to one category. I have many clothing articles ranging from UGG boots and skinny jeans to a japanese punk designer jacket and 4 inch platform shoes, so I can easily do more than one type of look. Either I do my own hair, or my hair stylist does (I only see her about every two months), I do my own makeup as well.
As for what kind of shoots I'd like to do I'm up to try pretty much anything. I will not do nude, don't ask.
I like to do shots in the city, urban modern areas, places with stairs, glass, mirrors, anything new, edgy, and/or refined. At the same time, old grungy worn down buildings and locations are appealing, as are certain shots done out in the country and nature. I love the water, I want to try shoots that are near and in the water, such as lakes and the ocean in particular.
I am willing to travel up to Blaine near the border and down to the Seattle area. I also travel to Southern California sometimes seeing as I have friends and family there. So anywhere between Los Angeles and San Diego (also around Riverside), I can get to when I'm down there, providing a family member or friend will drive me around. If you are willing to come to me, I am most grateful to you. I just got back from vacationing in SoCal. Any photogs in my area, hit me up!.
Now that I'm back up north, if I can borrow my mom's car I'll have better transportation, but typically the only shoots I can do during the weekdays are ones in town, and ones in nearby towns that the local buses run to such as Lynden, Blaine, and Mount Vernon. If you live anywhere else, such as the Seattle area, I can only do shoots on select weekends, unless of course you don't mind coming to me or paying for my transit.
If you are interested in doing a shoot with me, or would just like to give some advice, message me on here, myspace, or email me at laura.e.orso [at] gmail.com. Another way to contact me, as well as learn more about me is to add me on myspace which is listed as my homepage.
Thank you very much for reading, hope to work with you!
