Internationally published Gothic/Alternative model with over 3 years of experience. I need to work with like minded, creative, and talented people who are understanding and respectful of my life style choices and want to create art together.
About TF shoots/projects before you ask please read my full profile. Most questions can be answered here http://saphirerainforest.blogspot.com/2013/09/tfp-shoots.html
I am only and ONLY shooting tf for either
1.) Publications concept submissions for Alternative/Fashion Magazines. In which you must be fully dedicated to contributing on the project.Preferably photographers already published and familiar with the process.
2.) Currently doing photo sets for a website called Zivity.com. In which case I will only shoot with established photographers on the site.
3.) Collaborations with designers (Goth/Alternative) ads, magazines, catalogs, websites, runway, promotions etc.
P.S I have 2 tattoos on my stomach
New hair cut, currently have both sides of my head shaved. Current color is blond. Style is 22 inch white wool dreads. Currently in transition to white hair fully.
1 little black bones that spell the word love
2 little black bats flying out of my belly button.
I will be adding more along with piercings as well.
*Please check my facebook fan page for updates on my current looks, changes, body modifications, travel dates, locations, etc. I update more there than I do here. I post self shots of looks that I haven't yet been shot in. So my current look may or may not be in my portfolio. I will keep you posted of any changes prior to shooting. But please be aware that changes in my look do occur often.
PLEASE NOTE I DO NOT SHOOT EROTICS! Don't Ask
I don't have a car . So I try to set up shoots that are convenient to travel to.
I DO NOT SHOOT TF NUDES!
I am willing to travel to your area provided that my expenses are paid.
When contacting me for a shoot please let me know exactly what you're looking for in terms of style, location, paid or tfp, etc.
Communication is Key.
I don't care if you write me a paragraph or a novel, tell me everything that you possibly can about your shoot, project, ideas, and concepts that you have in mind. The more details I have the better and the more likely I will be able to determine rather or not we should work together prior to shooting so that neither of us waste our time.
Also be realistic, if we agree to shoot for a particular project and you know that you aren't going to be able to comply with it, don't bother working with me. I will ask questions prior to shoot don't get offended or take them personally.
Style (I bring my own wardrobe and accessories to shoots and I have a very dark, grundgy sort of style. If you are looking to shoot something specific let me know in advance.)
Concept (Again very selective about shoots, if you are looking for something specific tell me prior to shooting so there aren't any mis-communications.)
What/Where will the pictures be used for
Paid/TF (Please read my full profile I shoot very limited tf shoots) My rates are reasonable.
What kind of model am I?
Figure/life Fine Art Nude
I'm hear to create visual art with like minded people with similar goals in mind. If you would like to make art and create beautiful things with me, feel free to contact me.
Thank you for actually taking the time to read my profile and go through my portfolio before booking me for a shoot. A lot of mishaps can be avoided by researching the people you wish to work with. I really appreciate it. I'm sorry if this comes off as a lot. I am very friendly and approachable. I don't bite wanna shoot me, paint me, or work on an idea or project, send me a message inquire about my rates, they are reasonable. Just ask and send me a message. :-) I look forward to hearing from you.
