***I apologize to everyone that has sent me a message recently that it took me so long to respond. My schedule with work and graduate school have been keeping me very busy. Thank you in advance for your patience while awaiting a response.***
My name is Amanda and I heard about this site through a friend that is a photographer. I wanted to try getting into modeling as a thing on the side (not necessarily a career). I finally got around to updating this profile so hopefully it covers some more of the field.
I am a fairly outgoing person and will try most anything twice (yes, I said twice). I'm very comfortable with my body and have no issues shooting any types of nudes as long as they are tasteful. At this time I am not looking to get into any type pornographic or erotic work. I'd love to do ad work (magazines, catalogs or commercials etc) since I am too short for a runway and most other high-fashion things.
I don't have anything specific I'm looking to do as far as photo shoots so if you have a concept you would like to try out and think I would be able to help you, just ask. The worst I can do is say no, right?
~Hair - I have reddish brown hair....the color really depends on the day and the light. Sometimes it looks more red other days it looks more brown. I just recently cut it so it is to about the middle of my neck. I haven't had a shoot yet with the new haircut but as soon as I do, I'll add a couple more pics to my profile.
~Eyes - I have brown eyes...like the Van Morrison song. I wear glasses and contacts. There are times when my eyes will get very dry and red if I have my contacts in for a long time so I always try to keep eye drops with me just in case.
~Smile - I'm not one of those super bubbly people that smile 24/7 but that doesn't mean I'm not in a good mood. But as you can see from my port...I do smile. I'm not a fan of teethy smiles but I'll do it if it will help the picture. I prefer the subtle smile.
~T & A - Unfortunately I wasn't the lucky one in my family and I don't really have a large chest. Cleavage is only my friend when it wants to be and I don't really have much control over that. They are natural and I don't have plans for surgical enhancement. My butt, however, is there and although not a "ghetto booty" it gets me by. Don't ask me about stretch marks or cellulite. I have no stretch marks and cellulite is a natural occurrence in some people and unfortunately there isn't much I can do about it. Don't worry it's not crazy bad but I'm told there's some there. I try not to look since I'm not that concerned about it.
~Abs, Arms & Legs - I was a baton twirler, gymnast, swimmer...when I was in high school. I'm still athletic but not as much as when I was younger. I have a pretty flat stomach, though please don't hate me for being a model that LOVES food... My arms are not as toned as they used to be but I'm working on it....they aren't like jelly though. My legs are fairly strong. I have bigger thighs (thank you genetics...and gymnastics) but I don't think they look fat.
~Tattoos & Piercings - Currently I have two tattoos and eight piercings. The tattoos are on my shoulders (one on each) and can clearly be seen in the pictures in my portfolio (minus the one that says they were edited out). I have seven of the piercings in my ears...three in each lobe and one in my left cartilage. The last one is my navel. All of these can be removed if it interferes with the photo.
The best way to contact me is through a message on here. I will try my best to respond in a timely manner.
If you are interested in shooting with me, I beg of you, DO NOT just send me a message saying "hey, let's shoot!" My initial response (after sighing and shaking my head) is generally something to the effect of asking when, where, and what concepts. So again....I ask that if you are interested in shooting with me at least include some sort of general info like a location you would like to shoot at and what kind of shoot you would like to do. We can always figure out a date later if I decide I would like to do the shoot.
Another quick note about locations...as we all know some travel is expected. However, I prefer to stay semi-local or at least within an hour drive from where I am. There are times when I will go farther and I generally don't mind if I really like the concept or the person etc etc, but please don't be offended if I decline the offer because of the distance. Sometimes it's more about having other things going on and I just can't fit a shoot in, but there are certainly times when I will decline simply because I do not wish to travel to the location. In such case, I am always willing to compromise if possible.
