Hey all I'm Cat (short for Hellcat not Katerina). I am an F.F alternative model and dancer. You can see more of my pictures as well as some of my shooting skills and crafts on my Facebook fan page Cateyes Inc.
I have done runway, print, and artist sittings. My passion for aesthetics and expression make me a very creative and dynamic universal woman.When you work with me you will find that I am very helpful to the other models. I can coach other models as well as I can take coaching. Watching me work and do my thing you will just see me go. If you hit a creative wall and you can't figure out how to climb it I am great for bouncing ideas off of and inspiring you. It's just how I work and who I am. When I work with photographers just as they are looking to make me comfortable I am looking to make them comfortable. I understand the working dynamic behind the model/photographer relationship. I also like to meet with my shooters before a session whenever possible. I like to get a feel for one another and our chemistry. It also gives us a chance to discuss in further detail what is expected.
I know my body and body type and how to use what I have to appeal to the camera. I play well off others as well as inspire others through watching me work. Modeling is like a game of pretend. I get to be so many people with so many attitudes. It's like dancing, for a moment in time I am free to be creative. I often lose myself in the moment and take the shooter and whoever see's my photo, on my journey.
In January of 2010 I did a portrait sitting at a gallery in Sacramento CA and all of the pieces sold! I am very excited about that. One of the artists who painted me is the world renowned painter Karen Fulk so that was a huge honor for me.
I do not drive myself but do have a driver/ partner who accompanies me on most of my shoots. If I do a local gig I'm generally on my own; I just have my driver drop me and pick me up. I bring an escort to all nude shoots no exceptions.
My rates vary depending on the project and have a 4 hour minimum for travel and 2 for local. My time starts when I arrive on scene if you hire me for an open ended amount of time. I will not spend 3 hours in the make up chair and then waiting for my turn in front of the lens and only get paid for click time. I'm sure you true professionals can understand and appreciate that. I can do my own hair and make up and don't mind doing it. There is a $50 fee for doing so however considering it adds 2 hours to my day. Lifestyle is $75 per, fashion is $100 per, implied is $175 per, artistic is $200 per and adult and erotica/fetish is $350 per. When traveling is involved I am perfectly willing to negotiate with you if the expenses are paid. I am really quite easy to work with on all fronts. I have done some TFP work and am willing to consider doing it again depending on what you're looking for.
Feel free to hit me up any time to set up a shoot or even just share ideas. I love coming together with shooters, MUA's, designers and other models. There's nothing like sharing a vision and making that dream a reality. There's not much I won't do in the name of art so don't be afraid to ask.
For fun I revamp clothes, write, dance, sing, paint and cherish my time behind the lens as well as in front of it. I enjoy art as I am art as we all are art.
