I am a model of 4 years experience, in freelance private shooting, event modeling, figure drawing modeling and fashion/hair/makeup runway shows, in studios and on location, and I have been featured in magazines and books (details below in credits/work experience.) I have A Bachelor's Degree from the Southwest University of Visual Arts (meaning you can feel free to talk shop with me if you want - I love to - from design and photo editing to printing.)
Working with me is a great idea if you an amateur, professional, hobbyist, business owner, or even a student; I have a good face, clear skin, and keep a natural look - a clean canvas for photographers to use creatively as they choose. I have a 10 inch hip-to-waist ratio which is the optimal shape for a glamor model; my stage presence, combined with these attributes and posing skills, produce great results. I am punctual and handle my business in a professional manner, while having fun doing it. I am especially interested in nude yoga posing, nature nudes and body-scape photography, but am open minded about any style from fashion to full nudes.
I have a one square-inch tattoo on my right outer ankle and one navel piercing, and that is all for body modifications, no earrings; I keep shaved in the pubic region. If you have a project you'd like to use me for that requires a non-shaved pubic region, we can discuss this; I will need about three weeks to accomplish this look, however.
• Available to meet, work and travel all weekdays and weekend days from 7 am to 7 pm. Early morning or sunset preferred if shooting nature nudes. I entrust nighttime photography to my very talented significant other (Cast Shadow Photography - MM #1638007).
• I do my own pro-quality makeup/hair, have been for four years, and you can see my work in all of my portfolio photos.
• I can provide excellent shooting locations, both in studio and outdoors.
• References, ID, resume and rates also available upon request by email.
• be comfy with meeting with me first (perhaps over coffee) to discuss the shoot.
• have a decent camera, and knowledge of lighting techniques/photo-editing.
• understand that taking my photo needs to be for the sake of the beauty of the female form/art, NOT explicit sexual material.
"Depends On Assignment" means...
Paid assignments: My time is as valuable as anyone else's, and I need to be compensated for my time, experience and skill set. I offer private photo shooting sessions for reasonable rates, which are priced depending on the content of the shoot. Rates available upon request. Also, discounts are available for longer projects and repeat customers. However, I will not be negotiating my full nude rates; any other style's rate may be negotiated upon.
As for TF...
I am willing to do a certain amount of TF modeling with professional-quality photographers who I haven't worked with yet and have a good amount of experience under their belts, based on how much time I get booked for paid shooting per month; When I meet my paid shoot quota for the month, I am free to be chatted with about TF modeling; If we haven't worked together, and your skills are of professional quality, please feel free to ask if or when I have made my paid quota, if you would like to do a test shoot with me.
*Keep in mind, NO free implied nude or full nude shots, not even for David La Chappelle - so don't feel left out if you can't pay for nudes; we can still do fashion/glamor/lingerie/swimwear, this doesn't mean the pictures won't be just as alluring!
I hope to work with you!
PS - A note to you wonderful Tucson photographers, models, artists, designers, and creative people in general, who I'd love to meet and schmooze with; there is an industry social mingle at Lovesmack Studios on Toole Avenue from 7pm-1am every Thursday. I'd like to carpool. Let me know if you'd like to go, it is free, it's BYOB, and it's a lot of fun, and shooting happens, so don't forget that camera! ;)
I currently do figure modeling for visual artists at The Drawing Studio, here in Tucson, AZ.
Just featured on People.com promoting "Real Beauty At Every Age" (http://specials.people.com/realbeauty/gallery.jsp?token=34004-b759a27c113d2de13183912957708908)
