About Me~ Please see my other profile # 1571823 for my more commercial work. ~
I'm an actor, improv comedian, lifestyle/commercial print model, catalog model, fit model, spokesperson, event/trade show host, promo model, and voiceover artist.
I don't know why mm thinks I'm older than Jesus; I'm actually just 30.
I am represented by Vault Management: email@example.com / (503) 841-6250.
piercings: ears, navel (all easily removed)
freckles: yes, especially on lower back and arms.
skin: fair, no tan lines
bust/waist/hips: 32C / 34-26-36
If you'd like to work together, please message me. I don't always keep track of tags and comments. :)
~ MAKEUP / HAIR / STYLING ~
If needed, I'm able to do my own makeup/styling/basic hair. I'm growing my hair out. Currently red and 3" past the shoulders. (I also have 12 wigs of various lengths and shades.)
~ TRAVEL ~
I travel within the Portland metro area (or anywhere if compensated for expenses).
~ RATES ~
My rates are affordable, just ask. :) I'm happy to do TF* if it will enhance our portfolios. (I'm building my lifestyle/editorial/beauty/fashion port [#1571823] so those are especially the types of images I'm looking for.)
~ HOW I ROLL ~
Please *message* me if you'd like to work together. I'm reliable, professional, and straightforward. I prefer all the details up front and in advance, rather than at the last minute. Please have a plan or an idea, or be game to execute one of mine listed below.
No "glamour" shots. Nothing overtly sexual/erotic. Anything else will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
I don't flake. I keep my agreements and like those I work with to do the same. (That includes providing images within the agreed-upon time-frame.) Trade is a form of payment, and I approach it as such. Please do check my references.
I'm keen to collaborate with stellar photographers to make some high-concept, moody, expressive, offbeat, quirky, thought-provoking, and/or hilarious images.
~ IDEAS I'D LIKE TO EXPLORE ~
> lifestyle, e.g. drinking wine with a date, playing with kids at the beach, at a laptop computer in a coffee shop, etc. It would be great to shoot with other models, both male and female, e.g. night on the town, watching a DVD on the couch, business meeting, etc.
> commercial print style for type-appropriate products/services like upscale cars, wine, restaurants, groceries, pharmaceuticals, home renovation, pet-related, kid-related, mature beauty, hair color, accessories, clothing, tech/business, etc.
> trompe l'oeuil stuff that messes with scale and proportion etc.
> urban grime. something that makes the industrial/gritty seem somehow beautiful. also buildings.
> vintage in both style and execution, with period styling (e.g. Rococo, Renaissance, Nouveau, Deco, 20's, 50's, 60's, or other fun eras) Might be fun to shoot a "cougar in a smokey bar at the end of the night" kind of thing. Maybe with an early 60's mood.
> anything that highlights The Absurd and/or tells a compelling or thought-provoking story...
TAKE ADVANTAGE OF MY ACTING SKILLS! Thanks for reading. ;)
