Mayhem # 1501943
My name is Nancy, I live and study in Edinburgh. I enjoy travelling and will travel for shoots if arrangements are made in advance. I am extremely chatty and friendly and like to have fun on shoots. I can do my own basic hair and makeup prior to shoots.
My hair colour does change a lot and at the moment it is a white, it is quite likely I would be able to change my hair for a shoot if needed.
I have a strawberry birthmark about the size of a thumbprint on my left shoulderblade and a few faint scars on my arms. I currently have no tattoos and six piercings, three in my right earlobe, one in my left earlobe and snakebites in my lips. All my piercings can be removed for shoots, please specify if you want them removed or a certain colour/style before the shoot.
As much as I enjoy being a student unfortunately this means my time is fairly limited. I am usually free Mondays and Fridays, and will be free on Sundays by mid-April.
I am particularly interested in creative and alternative shoots. By this I mean: insane/wacky locations or costumes, zombies, pretty much anything with corsets, alternative fashion, twisted fairy tales, killer clowns, rock chic, pieces inspired by burlesque or pin up stars, unique takes on influencial films or literature, emotional pieces etc. However I still enjoy the occasional portrait, seasonal or mainstream fashion shoot.
I will often take a chaperone with me to a shoot, especially if meeting a colleague for the first time. The chaperone will not mind sitting quietly whilst the shoot is taking place.
I only do clothed shoots.
I am happy to work TF*, however if travelling far I will expect travel costs to be covered (don't worry I'll take a bus, not a private jet!)
I am willing to give an honest reference for anyone I have worked with.
I will work with beginners, experts and anything in between as long as they are respectful and friendly.
Thank you very much for checking out my page,
