SoCal: August 2-9
Columbus Ohio, tentative: August 23-26 - Please let me know if you'd like to see me anywhere in the surrounding area
If you want to be notified when I reach your location please send me a message with your location in the title. Or fly me to you and get a half day of shoot time in return!
Participating in and becoming art is my passion. I love this job, and look forward to helping you bring your vision to life. I enjoy work that challenges everyone involved, and my goal is to inspire awe and provoke thought rather than look idealized in every shot.
I now have several years under my belt as a nude model and am happy to be branching out into more conceptual work while continuing to shoot the classical, figure, and outdoor nudes that I am most known for. Please do not assume that because you don't see something in my portfolio that I don't or won't do it. I shoot many genres and am almost always happy to try something new.
I am eager to collaborate with wardrobe designers and stylists, makeup artists, and hair stylists. I am currently actively seeking conceptual projects with teams, especially those intended for submission.
I am also eager to pose for workshops, since I find that they are often wonderful learning environments and quite fun. Workshop hosts, please feel free to message me for pertinent references - I have several.
Working With Me
-Please state all relevant information up front when you message me. This includes proposed style/genre/ideas/concept, any dates/times preferred, duration of shoot, and proposed compensation or a request for my rates.
-I enjoy talking during shoots and getting to know you, but I appreciate that everyone has a different style. If you prefer that I just stay quiet while posing please let me know. For those of you who like music during the shoot: I enjoy most music and will love you forever if you play certain artists such as Billy Joel or Andrew Lloyd Weber, but if you prefer that I not sing during the shoot something without lyrics is recommended.
-If you have no set concept and just want me to do my thing, great! However, please tell me if you want me to wear specific makeup and/or bring specific wardrobe, or else I will show up with whatever I feel like wearing.
-Please ask me before confirming our shoot if you have questions about when the clock begins/ends.
-I love food but I have some dietary restrictions. I really appreciate you wanting to bring me snacks/lunch/dinner, but please check with me first to make sure I can eat it.
-I am based in Santa Rosa, about an hour North of SF. I regularly travel to the East Bay and San Francisco, as well as making frequent trips to Sacramento and San Jose. I am also starting to hit areas such as Humboldt, Santa Cruz, and Monterey, and am happy to travel beyond as well. I do offer a slightly discounted rate to photographers willing to come to SR to shoot.
-I love to travel. If you would like me to start planning a trip to your area, and/or notify you when I make it through, please send me a message with your location in the subject line. I am happy to trade shoot time for airfare, and am currently actively seeking travel opportunities.
Appearance and Styling:
-At the moment my pubic and armpit hair are fully grown. If it is important to you that I have either a certain way please mention it when you contact me and we can discuss it.
-I have a scar around my left aureola and down the underside of the breast. It is not pronounced, but you are welcome to Photoshop it out if you prefer.
-My hair is currently natural as a dark brown with red undertones. It is not as red as in some of my photos.
-I can do basic hair and makeup, and am also happy keeping my face bare.
-I have a portfolio for my headshots and clothed work. If you have a concept utilizing wardrobe I have a decent selection including pasties, corsets, vintage pieces, and some oddities. I have a complete fencing costume and Sabre and some antique foils that are sometimes available as costuming or props for shoots as well.
Trade and Barter Work
I am very picky about trade work at the moment, and for most trade shoots will require a small stipend to cover gas and tolls. I also usually require that at least a makeup artist be on board. Things that are currently likely to entice me to trade:
-Magazine submissions and tearsheets
-Conceptual shoots with a full team
-Latex, an awesome wardrobe stylist, and/or an awesome designer
-Julian Wilde, Neil Snape, TH Taylor, and Philip Ritchie
-I am also open to barter. Please see my post in the official barter thread for a list of what I am currently seeking.
While at home: I require half of the agreed upon compensation if you cancel within a week of our shoot. I require the full amount if you cancel within 24 hours.
While traveling: I require half the agreed upon amount if you cancel within a week of our shoot or after my travel has started. I require the full amount if you cancel within 48 hours.
