About MeI'm Sam AKA Essjay, a 21 year old fashion and catwalk model.
I'm moving to Illinois for a year in August so if you'd like to shoot with me before I go, please get in touch. I'd also like to continue modelling whilst I am there so fi you're based locally and interested in shooting please contact me.
I don't use Model Mayhem that much anymore so if you;re interested in working together it might be easier to message me on Facebook - search Essjay Model.
Currently I am based in Leeds or Grimsby depending on the time of year but I am always willing (and love) to travel.
I'm a trained dancer and therefore used to performing on stage. This makes me very comfortable in front of the camera and helps me pose. I take direction well but can also pose by myself so whatever your style, I can make it work! I do this job because i enjoy it and am good at it and this shows in my attitude. Shooting should be fun for both parties and I try to make it so. I'm always pulling faces between shoot and basically making an idiot of myself, unfortunately this mean many photographers have material to blackmail me with. Hopefully this will never come to pass!
The styles I usually shoot are Fashion Editorial, Hair and Beauty but I love experimenting and trying to push myself. So if you have a particular idea in mind i'll probably be enthusiastic. I am also an experienced catwalk model.
I am willing to do implied topless nude, anything more will be at my own suggestion if I am comfortable with the photographer and idea. I will not shoot any porn or bondage and I dislike most types of 'usual' glamour.
I do very limited testing and paid work will always come so please do not be offended if I quote you my rates. These are reasonable, remember I may enjoy this job but I need to make a living as well
