You want to know how I've managed success, and so many publications during my career? I'm very good at what I do. I do it better than most professional models, makeup artists, and hairstylists and I do the job of 5 people *for less* than the price of a model.

It took 7 years, but I'm tired of the industry. This has been building over the years and reached a peak. Maybe it will change with some down time, maybe not. The cancellations, flaking, people who do not want to pay deposits but expect me to travel a thousand miles away, folks getting upset because the USD conversion rate is different and they have to pay a few bucks more-- nevermind that without that, I can't afford to travel model; as travel is a huge expense... people always wanting discounts and lower rates, etc etc.

Every model I know deals with this. The difference is most models do not support themselves. They live with family or have spouses, etc etc. They don't have a mortgage payment, and other responsibilities.

My portfolio is full of stellar images that I either styled myself or worked with amazingly talented people to produce. To those folks, thank you. I have loved every moment of it. To the former, adieu. I do not have the heart to subject myself to industry abuse. 

I'm only taking jobs from my agency and publication gigs for awhile. Please do not solicit me for "collaborations"

Thank you to everyone awesome in the industry, you have made this journey worthwhile for many years.

business: PLEASE don't ask me to work tf/free/collab. this is my income. tf is for models developing their portfolios. I do the work of 6 professionals. my work, time, skill and experience are not free. I always try to meet everyone in the middle so here's what I consider a fair trade: guaranteed publications with a full team and travel provided. I will also trade/discount for a room to stay, or for plane/train/hotels to places of interest.

On a budget? I reduce rates for photographers who travel to me, or contract monthly with me. I try to meet everyone in the middle.

travel: 50% deposit to book, due within 3wks of travel. Refundable with 1wk notice, or a  rescheduled date. All travel models have similar policies. I have many references. We are not officially booked unless there's a deposit

...Let's make some art!!

Please see my website

Since 2011 I av 1-3 publications/mo with a handful that are in major print magazines (over 40k, some 300k)

Note: I live in Fredericksburg. My hair is black. My stats are accurate. I have near perfect skin. It's KAT-lin, not kaitlin! Or just Kat! wink

I HATE long profiles jammed with images, so I keep mine short. If you made it this far YOU are awesome!

talented models: I work closely with the owner of Ayyawear, Steampunk Attire, Verillas and Greenbrier. His clothing labels sometimes have opportunities to trade with talented, experienced models and he's also a great photographer. If you have a killer port and look, PM me.
