Colorful little oddball of sunshine, imaginative mind, flexible body and diverse ideas waiting to be photographed swirling around my head. I'm truly my happiest and most comfortable with and around cameras; A Photographer and Model that ADORES dressing up, being different characters, life from other eras, blending horror with beauty, politics with morals, Doesn't mind getting messy, cold, hot, or a uncomfortable for a shoot, & I hope to be creating memories through my images that stay relevant, interesting, and something to talk about long afterwards.
I'm searching for people of all different genders, histories, body types, styles, and cultures to photograph as well as model for. Anyone I can work with a few times a year is a major advantage and will make me the happiest lady in this beautiful Universe! (only a short 2.5 hours to Boston, MA and CT, and 3 to NYC/RI.)
I use a variety of cameras to capture life and portraiture, my favorite being my two Fujifilm Polaroids, Wide and Mini. Though I use my canon DSLR for most shoots needing more control over the settings.
**Currently all of my sites are undergoing major redesign and photo uploads from a major unfortunate backlog; but I'll share my older work as well as brand new work as I go.**
I started shooting as a serious hobby in 2001, and began shooting clients in 2003. 2005 I bought my first DSLR and from then on, knew what it is I wanted to do with my life, and that was use a camera to show and distort reality, be as honest as possible, or create worlds that were totally imaginary. I could have fun, be serious, and share My ideas in a way I loved; from then on it became my life as well as a Serious career. Moving to NYC in 2008, I was doing well until my illness hit which kept me in the hospital and in bed most of the time, unable to work, never knowing when I'd get sick, not knowing what illness was bothering me, but things have changed, I have a new perception, my eyes see more, my heart is open to more, and instead of feeling envy of photographers that are great, I want to sit down with them, learn what makes them tick, and perhaps collaborate. I learned I'm a warrior, strong body, strong mind..gaining my health back and am ready to come back to the job! Actually I already am back, I humbly and very much need many models, clients, hairdressers, designers and fellow photographers to collaborate with me to help build my New, Better, Bigger and more Bad-ass portfolio(s)! *photography and modeling
