About Me[b]**I am in Phoenix right now[/b], but also have a place in Los Angeles. It is easy for me to get there and I will go there for the right work & select TF. My place is at Marina Del Rey. However I need at least 2-3 weeks heads up due to a busy life in Phoenix. But if I make plans to come to LA, I will be there when I say I will **
** [b]If you request to be friends with me, please comment on a photo or add to a list[/b] - I am not here to collect friends, but work with those who are serious about this. If I request to be friends, it is because I have a desire to work with you at some point, and I will leave photo comments/add to a list, or a tag**
[b]Well, Hello there :) [/b]
So the time has come to take my modeling and acting one or two steps further and so far I have had lots of fun, learned a lot, met so many great people, so thanks to the photographers/cinematographers that I've worked with that made this all possible for me - without you donating your time, this would have never happened.
I am so ready to move forward and evolve - to add more challenging concepts!! If offering TFCD; See my port for the things I have done and/or on Facebook. Let's combine, incorporate what I already know/have done with new things, as well as time for me to be truly challenged - so let me know your ideas.
I have no problem traveling distances, climb trees or mountains, get up in the middle of the night, stay up the entire night, tear up clothes, watch How-to-Videos, spend hours researching and/or buying THE perfect prop ... you get the idea, for the right photo or right location. I will work hard, that's my promise to you.
[b]** So who am I? **[/b]
I truly love photography, and I bring my camera everywhere I go - so photography has been part of my life for a long time, and I am excited over the fact that I went this direction!!
Some of my ports photos are still self-portraits (constantly building a stronger portfolio) - unless it is signed/credited with the photographers name/studio.
So let's see what I should more tell you about myself? Well, I am originally from Sweden, and have now been here in the US for about 14 years (arrived in 1999)! And yes I speak fluent English of course, with a tiny cute accent. - I am a very passionate person in general; for me it is a state of mind rather than something that comes and goes; Anything I do in life my passion will show, I never do anything half way or half-assed (can I say that here? lol)- then I rather not do it at all. I am only satisfied if I have done my absolute best.
I love my feminine curves, am a girly girl and I am very comfortable with my body!! I grew up Tom-boy, but transformed into a feminine woman.
I love glam, high end fashion, with lots of amazing accessories and jewelry. However, I love the total opposite as well (the contrasts) and everything in between, as this for me is about creating things/events/situations that are normally not experienced in every day life.
[b]Skills I have that can be useful for future projects;[/b]
* Am a PADI scuba certified and own all necessary gear including computer, BC and tanks, reg - Am currently taking the second certification; Advanced Open water. Just have the night dive left.
* Car racing with stick shift (drove rally back in Sweden) I still do test driving for some manufacturers coming into town.
* Horsemanship/horseback riding - Been riding for 15 years and have had horses for 10.
* Guns/weapons - great at target shooting
* Dance (competed in West Coast Swing)
* 4 Wheelers
[b]** My wardrobe and props **[/b]
So to the other fun part...YAY - I made my second bedroom into a walk-in closet to fit all my clothes/dresses, shoes, lingerie, jewelry and accessories!!
I own a couple of businesses and one of them is geared towards, clothes, accessories, costume jewelry, shoes, lingerie etc - so this comes in very handy doing what I do - because we will never run out of outfits and the constellations are endless!! So I have more jewelry, body art (I have no tattoos or piercings but can easily add this temporarily), sunglasses, scarfs, belts, shoes/boots (over 250 pairs), wraps, gloves, lingerie, fetish attire, hats, watches and bags than most girls do in a lifetime. My other "fetish' except for accessories and shoes would be dresses - I simply love dresses!! A girl can never have too many dresses/gowns, right? And what I don't have, I will get.
[b]** What do I want and where am I heading? **[/b]
-Paid work - modeling & acting.
-TF/TFCD work with experienced photographers is accepted - where the photos will benefit both of us. I am interested in collaborating with creative photographers to create unique & beautiful quality photos where it will take my port forward and gain strength. My personal preference is location work, unless
the studio is created in a new enviroment (this goes for TFCD work) or we are in AZ and it is in the middle of the summer...lol. This goes for acting as well.
Not only do I enjoy learning new strategies of photography from a model's point of view (posing, hair, make up, expressions - I study books, websites and models ports frequently to learn as much as possible - and then I practice), I strive to support and assist any professional in reaching their own goals as well - so speak up :) I really want to be pushed to exercise my full abilities. Love being part of the collaboration process and believe I am an asset and I can be very creative. And I have en eye for details.
I am a proud professional member of The Model Alliance and I invite other models to elevate the standards of our industry, personally and professionally. Check out http://modelalliance.org/models-bill-of-rights
By the way, check out my video:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=40Z71oUQhhs made by Kevin Tyler and photography by Marty Carsten
[b]And; [/b] I will only shoot if a model release is signed by both - This is for both of us, so we know what to expect from each other and the shoot.
Bear in mind I require big enough photos to be able to print 8.5x11 for my printed portfolio on a CD/DVD at a min dpi of 300. And if posted online including MM/facebook/your port, to be credited with my name, bc I will do the same for you.
I am extremely easy going, not a diva, not self-absorbed just happy go lucky and follow the flow - whatever happens happen!! And I smile all the time, like to have fun, joke around, tease in a fun-loving way - at the same time as we are there to do work of course and I am super serious about this.
I am a huge believer in networking, am very open minded, have experience in front of the camera and completely comfortable in a crowd. I embrace learning and have huge respect for those who tries their very best (effort goes a long way) and people who take pride in their work. I realize though that no matter how good one is, there is always room for improvement!
I am extremely reliable - If I make plans with you, I will never flake on you - I come very well prepared to our shoot - I am organized - I do not travel light.
I do my own hair and makeup unless requested different. I am proficient in both. I am an Esthetician from before I started modeling & am starting a Master Makeup Artistry course this summer. If you are looking for something more elaborate than my profile exhibits then an outside MUA is prefered.
I do not bring an escort with me to any location or studio shoots.
[b]** Implied nude/Artistic nude/Fetish **[/b]
UPDATE: At this time I do not do any nude/implied due to me being part of a TV serie until further notice, however nude and being able to cover up the "sensitive parts" is no problem, like the tub photos I have for example - -
I will do implied nude/topless, and sometimes artistic nude with a few very select photogs who are very experienced - My fees are very reasonable for nude/implied. All of which have to be very classy, no spread legs etc. And I do have some Fetish photos on my port, and would love to create some classy fetish art. B&W Fetish art is awesome, I think.

Also due to this economy, I am don't mind bartering at all. However it would have to be something useful. See my Amazon wish list, which you are of course more than welcome to buy from, but it can also serve as a guideline for what I enjoy and could appreciate as barter. Anything for my Canon T1i is great!!
[b]So reach out to me - we will have an awesome together!![/b]
