Hi there! Thanks for stopping by and taking a look at my profile.
*** UPDATE: I'm back from Seattle now, and am doing a lot of work on preparations for TempleCon 2015, so my response time is not optimal thanks to the TempleCon-generated deluge in my inbox, but I do still have some availability and WILL respond, just not immediately.
Looking forward to working on some beautiful images as we move into fall! ***
Some Background Information: In addition to modeling, I am a performance artist and dancer with martial arts training and extensive contortionist experience, the director and choreographer of Icon Alchemy performances, and a founding member of the Atomic Immersion Collaborative, creators of installation and interactive performance art events. As a result of my performance activities, I have a sizable wardrobe of vintage, gothic, fetish, and fantasy costumes and accessories, and I am experienced in theatrical costuming, make-up, and set design - in particular I have a passion for creating otherworldly event environments, and would love to spend more time translating that skill into photo sets. I also have a longstanding fine arts background, and I love combining multiple forms of art, including painting, photography, illustration, installation art, performance art, and video. I have had voice training and I have over 6 years of experience in public speaking, so I enjoy vocal projects as well as visual ones, including promotional work. As the Creative Director of the TempleCon retro-futurist gaming convention and co-owner of The Temple gaming lounge, I love gaming and related fields, including comic books, science-fiction and fantasy-based art, steampunk, cyberpunk, and anime, so any projects that cater to those audiences are sure to pique my interest.
I am primarily looking for paid modeling work, but I will happily consider any project that utilizes a combination of my creative skills and that I believe can contribute significantly to my portfolio. Please note that I do not do nude work on a TFP/CD basis, and while I am happy to travel, I do ask that my travel expenses be paid for by the photographer or client. Also, if you are considering contacting me about a TFP/CD project, please, first take a look at my list of "Imagery I Aspire To." These are the images that make my heart go pit-a-pat. If they do not similarly move you, please, let's not waste our time!
When contacting me, please include the following information:
- What kind of work you are interested in shooting
- Date and Time
- Transportation/hotel (if traveling is involved)
- Anything else that I should know about the shoot
Also, for the best results, please contact me at least 24 hours prior to a potential shoot (preferably more!) - I try to keep busy, so I am rarely just hanging around at 6 or 7am waiting for an invitation to shoot on the same day.
