I Have been the beauty industry since 1994, a MUA for 10 years doing make-up in a very busy high end salon. I became a make-up trainer for this company, I know my make-up inside and out.
Now my husband and I own our own salon and I have also launched my own make-up line, Esque.
I was a portrait artist first. When I found out there is no market for portrait artists, I ended up in the beauty industry. I have always enjoyed photography. I received photoshop as a gift in 2002 and I have been on it ever since.
I am self taught in photoshop, photography, and I have had a lot of education in art I understand composition, color,and anatomy very well. I feel this gives me an edge. Although I still have so much to learn, I enjoy doing it all and being in total control of a vision which is why I want to master these talents.
I also love to collaborate with other photographers. I am extremely easy going and embrace criticism. I know getting a bunch of people together that specialize in there trade can't be matched.
With my knowledge of photography, and photoshop, I know what works in print and what is difficult to adjust post production.
I also would like to work closely with a photographer to learn the ropes of high fashion photography. I will exchange my time as a stylist for some photography training for the right photographers.
Due to the busy time of year and working on my photography port I will not be doing TF's. Rates 40 an hour 125 half day (5 hrs) 250 full day (8+ hrs)
