Update: I'm on hiatus until the academic stranglehold is lessened, since I'm presently unable to schedule harmoniously and travel any distances. I shall return.
Angst-free. 75% sarcasm. No botox.
I have a fetish for artistic B&Ws and that smoldering, decadent couture bullshit that I cannot help but be enamored with. Also, vibrant colors and plentiful accessories, bizarre angles, political statements, art that contains charm, or that bleed understated sensuality.
Looking for photographers/stylists preferably in the New England area that are fairly laid-back (rare psychotic tendencies are fine) and with fairly low-maintainence personalities, but with high expectations and conviction behind their work.
I really loathe becoming the obnoxiously rigid model who talks about what she DOESN'T want to do, but seriously, just maintaining the positives doesn't stop a lot of really stupid offers. I have no interest in:
- Swimsuit shoots (that's actually kind of a mouthful, so I'd be REALLY pissed if you mentioned it to me, especially verbally).
- Anything involving a gas mask, angel wings, gothy paraphernalia, contrived lingerie, fake blood slathered along my tits and face, and costume-y things that you'd easily discover on an exotic dancewear website. If you're interpreting my earlier statement regarding enjoying "sensuality" as "mainstream formulaic flaunting", you're probably confused.
- Nothing in plain lighting where I simply sit around in jeans and seem to just gush how pretty I am for no apparent reason. People want to shoot me in regular daylight with my lacey bra peaking out from underneath my top, staring vacantly. Please. And I don't even wear a bra. PASS.
- No concepts. It's one thing if we've gotten to know eachother and it just becomes a casual thing, but if you're a complete stranger and we're both exchanging inquisitive "Soooo... uhh.. what should we do for a shoot?" in person it's incredibly distracting. Develop a concept with me so we can eliminate that unnecessary tension, I'm a novice so I don't "wing it" yet.
I have NO spectacular portfolio/professional pictures featured here yet, considering I'm pretty novice. Hopefully you can check out the face/hair/body to work with, and decide accordingly. I'm interested in building a portfolio, ya dig?
