Hey there fellow models, photogs, and MUA/Stylists. I'm Rome Romanne, a professionally-trained theatre actor and working model. Please check out my port. I encourage ALL comments!
PLEASE DON'T BE AFRAID TO CONTACT ME IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO WORK WITH ME, as I'm looking to collaborate with any talented people with a creative project. Of course, I'm always looking for paid work, too. In so doing, I hope to benefit from connecting with other cool and friendly industry people. As you see when you visit my port, I'm very well-travelled, having shot all over the world, and consider myself lucky to have worked extensively. I also pride myself in having a very versatile look; it helps that I am also a professionally-trained actor (SAG/AFTRA/AEA-eligible).
Most of my images here are not retouched. Showing me as I am, these illustrate a more accurate portrayal of what I REALLY look like as a clean pallette underneath it all. Some are great (some are not), but they're honest.
I place a strong priority on my professionalism, but I'm also friendly/easy to work with. I'm told that I have a good attitude. Truth be told, I'm just an average Joe underneath it all; I'm laid back and can take direction very well. Personally I'm very driven, Ivy-League educated, and the recipient of several talent and modelling awards and titles. I am also a trained dancer and a successful award-winning choreographer/instructor of the Dance Sports Precision genre, so I am totally aware of my own body and how to move/pose. I have worked extremely hard for everything I have ever accomplished (see credits, below), yet I also work equally hard to remain humble through it all. In other words, I'm not a braggart - no one wants to work with a show-off. I also relish in the thought of being able to accomplish so much in the American mainstream in spite of my unconventional looks.
I am also open to shooting with other models and collaborating with MUA's and stylists, open to shooting in all kinds of mediums as well. If anyone would like to shoot with an experienced and cool male model, or even just shoot the breeze, please give me a holla. Thanks!
