Being a subject of photographs immerses me more deeply in myself- body and mind - and in my relationship to the world, requiring an intimate exploration of the outer layers of creative expression (read: the “shallow” ) which are the first points of contact in all relationships.
Depth and introversion are qualities so often accompanied by intense empathy and emotion, leading paradoxically to seclusion and schizoid self absorption. Mastery of the “shallow” layers forges connection to the collective eye, makes social use of that depth, creating access to a portal of inhibited impulses, hidden reactions, and various slivers of potential selves which might otherwise be unseen, turn rancid, or be lost forever.
I really love this article on the "soul stealing camera" http://www.strangehorizons.com/2001/200 … vard.shtml
Also, I like this quote: "if you can't explain it to your grandmother, it's probably bullshit."
I am friendly, creative, and experienced. Work that is dark, moody, unusual, erotic without being nude, cheesecake/vintage-smut inspired, or generally old-fashioned appeals to me most. I like to push social boundaries and leave room for interpretation.
Note: if you are interested in shooting with me, send a message. While my rates vary depending on the project and photographer, I do have rates for nudes. Please also understand that I am a thoughtful, serious person and I prepare for shoots. I give preference to photographers who show the same values through clear communication leading up to the shoot and at least a days notice if you need to cancel.
