I'm a female photographer looking for other female artists and models to collaborate.
My work has shifted from shooting fashion to creating more (and i hate to use this term, but) 'fine art' portraits and nudes with other female artists. Don't get me wrong though, I still enjoy photographing a pretty fashion editorial so don't hesitate to think I will refuse to do this. Just, for the time being, fashion is not where my heart truly lies.
(however, I am quite good at mixing my personal work and fashion styles together if this is something that interests you, too.)
I'm looking for women who are interested in being open-minded to a variety of styles and suggestions that can at times be tacky or messy (and I secretly hope it always gets messy). My main concern shooting is that there is a mutual sense of respect, comfort and fun!
I shoot all 35mm film with the exception of occasionally bringing out a Polaroid or two and, though less likely but not totally uncommon, my Canon 50D. Also, I enjoy creating short, somewhat artsy, sometimes silly videos with my camera phone and Vine app. My feeling is the more goodies I can give you after a shoot the better.
I send images and videos (if applicable) to your email address in a zip file or, if you prefer, on a disc via snail mail. You are free to blog, facebook, print and share the works in any capacity with on-line sources at least being credited with 'Ash LaRose'.
The only thing I please ask is that you be genuinely interested in what I am doing. This only increases the chances of having a fabulous time shooting and better photos!
