Mayhem # 1647065
I'm just finishing up college, and plan on fully pursuing my dreams when I graduate in December. My other passion is horses (dressage, a very little-known Olympic sport), that is the long-term career path I plan on taking. Right now I am trying to balance both passions and pursue both goals.
Because of the horses I split my time between Ohio and Florida. Winters are spent in Wellington, FL (about twenty minutes inland from West Palm Beach), while Summers are spent in Columbus and Cleveland.
I am most interested in fashion and editorial. Those are the photos that really get me going -- they make my heart race, make me drool with a mix of envy and awe, turn me into the ultimate consumer, inspire passion... they just get me going. I love it when you look at a photo and there is a phsyical reaction to it that just makes you say "WOW, I want to be a part of that!" For me, those are mostly fashion and editorial images (take a look at the photographers in my Top 12, their portfolios drive me crazy with amazement! I would possibly sell my soul to work with those photographers).
In terms of what I bring to the table, I always try to be as professional as possible. This is a buisness, no one likes someone who appears not to care. It is tacky and disrespectful. That said, I am not stuffy, demanding or anything like that. I'm outgoing and lighthearted; I'm a very positive person, always happy and always looking for silver linings. I'm open to new ideas, and actually crave constructive criticism. I want to go as far as possible, so I'm willing to work my butt off and do what it takes -- and that requires learning from others.
There are a few concepts right now that I am dying to be a part of: retro 70's style (think Bridget Bardot hair/makeup), eyewear, denim, couture and a classic, Ralph Lauren or Michael Kors style shoot. If anyone is interested in helping me out with these, please let me know :)
