About Me*****UPDATE: NO LONGER doing TF, unless we can get a tear sheet / PUBLICATION out of it.***** Other than that, my rates are extremely affordable. Message me, lets talk. ;)
I am PASSIONATE and WONT STOP 'til we get THE SHOT~!!!!
My name is Jes and I started modeling in July 2009. I was approached to be apart of local San Antonio fashion show and since then I have been working on my portfolio and growing as a model...but mostly just loving this more and more in a way I never thought. So far, I have stayed local in the TX area.
I started with booking local fashion shows and decidedly became more passionate about the art of photography and not just shooting with anybody, but more so a select few of photographers that truly inspire and move me. I love coming up with my own concepts, but I am also just as open to collaborating...I do not appreciate photographers expecting me to come up with the whole concept, nor would I expect them to do the same for me. Somebody told me once "Your the model so you really shouldnt be speaking or giving your opinion on anything", well I am NOTHING like that, so if thats what your expecting/wanting we probably shouldnt work together. :D
***This is NOT my full-time job, but it is my passion, so PLEASE serious inquiries ONLY!
If any Photographer would like to shoot my rates are EXTREMELY reasonable and I know we can create some wonderful art together. VERY limited TFP/CD, depending on the assignment, if your work speaks to me or I know we can benefit each other's portfolio. I cant make this clear enough, I am only interested in working with serious photographers who have a passion and are interested in collaborating with a model who is equally passionate if not more. So please do not be offended if I am not interested in working together.
SIDE NOTE: I may NOT be your typical height for a model but I am great with my body and know how to appear 'tall' so please feel free to message me. So lets work together and see what awesomeness we can come up with! ;)
Thanks for visiting my portfolio.
