I am an amateur model with some stage and TV acting experience. I was born in Kiev, Ukraine and bring my European charm to any photo shoot! I'm very natural in front of cameras and, as most people on here would be, am very comfortable in front of the lens. I speak a multitude of languages, so if you're shooting a movie, maybe I can help!
My goal is simple: get in front of a camera and make magic happen!
I am completely open to any and all artistic ideas. I have absolutely no reservations towards contemporary, professional, or off the wall photographers. I don't intend on making any money at all and my ideal goal would be to help a local Chicago-land photographer build his/her portfolio! Of course, I'm more than willing to travel to Wisconsin, Indiana and Illinois (at my own expense if needed).
I used to be overweight at around 198lbs, but now am at a lean 158lbs and loving it! People have told me that my most distinguishing feature is.... my eyelashes and my eyes :) I have blue/green/yellow eyes with long eyelashes. I never noticed until some of my friends said they were jealous...
I have no style preferences, I am able to adapt to any environment and any situation. I always try to make sure that all photo shoots are fun, full of laughs, creative and most of all... productive! I enjoy meeting new people and I love working with incredibly talented and creative artists.
I look forward to working with you guys!
Credit is of course given where it is due!
