About me
I started modeling when I was twelve years old. I modeled locally for several years, but never really perused a modeling career. At eighteen I decided I wanted to see the world, so I ran off and married an Army fellow. At twenty I had my first child, then another at twenty three, and another at twenty six. By this time, I was a mom, a wife, a home owner, and nothing more. I was content, but not really, I needed a creative outlet. I picked up a camera and started shooting, and haven't put it down since. I found that I really enjoyed shooting beautiful women, and was quite good at it. Then I realized I could shoot self portraits, and I was quite good at that as well, so good in fact, that my self portraits have been published internationally. This is what led me back to modeling. I stay extremely busy with local modeling gigs. I'm 36 years young (no one can believe my age though. I look at least 10 years younger)
I like to say I am a photographer by trade, but model on the side! I shoot a lot of self portraits. I have modeled for leading industry photographers such as, Rick Sammon, Hanson Fong, Hal Schmitt, Jack Davis, Jane Conner-Ziser, Neil and Susan Silverman, Lee Varis, Bobbi Lane, Ken Sklute, David Mecey (Playboy) and many, many local photographers. I've worked on film projects with Fletch Murray, who is a multi-Emmy award-winning director of photography. I've also done many Indy films and commercials. I can teach you posing, lighting, how to use your camera, and retouching. My looks range from sexy siren to soccer mom, and everything in between. I am VERY versatile and VERY dependable! To see more of my work visit http://www.flickr.com/photos/amandavalena/ I also work closely with Light Photographic Workshops as a stylist, model, and photographer. I am very proficient at my own hair and make-up. I don't have any tattoos or piercings. I love to be a Muse and inspire the arts.
