"Luck? I don't know anything about luck. I've never banked on it and I'm afraid of people who do. Luck to me is something else: Hard work - and realizing what is opportunity and what isn't." - Lucille Ball
GO HARD OR GO HOME. This is my approach to things. If you feel the same, we'll probably benefit hugely from working together.
My Portfolio is quite large and keeping Model Mayhem updated can sometimes be a pain. If you'd like to see ALL of my Portfolio (minus what is awaiting Publication) please visit www.chevvypiston.com. Only my favorite images and a few new images will be posted here.

PLEASE READ BEFORE CONTACTING ME:
I am a plus sized (by industry standard) heavily modified alternative model. I have two full length sleeves, both still in various stages of completion. I also have the following tattoo'd:
- large thigh piece on the left leg
- right foot
- large rib piece on my right side, from armpit to hip
- lower back piece
- small piece on left back hip
- lower stomach piece on the right side
- large chest piece
- the back of both thighs
Measurements are always kept up to date and YES I shoot nudes.
***NON-NEGOTIABLES WITH TFP***
- If you plan on selling my images I require payment for my services.
- ALL TFCD shoots are a maximum of 2 hours in length unless previously discussed.
- I require HI-RES images from all TF shoots for my Print Portfolio.
PLEASE NOTE: I do all my own MAKE-UP & HAIR for all of my images unless otherwise stated in the photo credits. I do not mind collaborating with a make-up artist/hair stylist ONLY IF their skill greatly rivals my own.
I am primarily accepting paid work. TF work is secondary to all paid work. Rates are always negotiable depending on the project and I'm open to working within your budget.
A portfolio with my current and accredited work can be found at www.chevvypiston.com.

What has been said about me...
"When it comes down to what makes me feel accomplished and satisfied overall with a photo shoot, a lot of it happens to be the little things. So when I'm lucky enough to work with a model who brings all of those little things and more to the table, those feelings become something else. They derail from the common feelings of "simply satisfied" and "accomplished" and crash into fields of "beyond thrilled" and "over-joyed".
At least that is how I felt about working with Chevvy Piston."
- Nikita Gushue (F.Alt Photographics)
"I appreciate Chevvy's experience more than she knows! It's so easy to shoot a model who knows her angles like clock work. It's always a pleasure."
- Randy Allen (Powder Puff Vixen Pin-up Photography)
"Chevvy gives GREAT face."
- Viva Van Story (Viva Van Story Photography)
"Chevvy is the only model I've ever worked with who is consistantly challenging herself. She is a WORKING model. Always trying to evolve from what she was yesterday, last week, last month."
- Shimona Henry (Shimona Henry/Pin-up Perfection Photography)
"I'm always happy when Chevvy gives me a call and asks if I'm available to shoot. She's a professional: she shows up ready to go, with flawless hair and makeup that she does herself. I want to emphasize that her makeup is incredible and compliments her modelling style perfectly!
Chevvy never needs direction - she knows what she's doing and is at ease in front of the camera, but is also open to any suggestions from the photographer and loves collaborating.
Guaranteed every shoot I do with her I'm going to get images that look great!"
- David Denofreo

"Chevvy's reputation as a talented, beautiful and brilliant model is well-deserved. It was a fantastic opportunity working with her."
- Fireboy Creative
"Chevvy is not JUST a curvy model. She is a curvy model who knows her curves and owns them, especially in front of the camera."
- Steve Prue
