Hello! Welcome to my profile.
contact: rubyslippermodel at gmail dot com | tumblr | instagram: coconutdreamin
I am a professional, usually nude, often traveling, art model with over 4 years of experience. I am all natural, with red hair, alabaster skin, and hazel eyes. I have worked in a wide range of settings with photographers of all skill levels. I have worked very hard to get where I am today and am very proud of my current portfolio. I am continuously growing as an artist (and as human being) and I love being able to express that through different mediums. I'm a fan of film, old cameras and natural light. And if you are wondering, yes, I am growing out my hair again.
When contacting me about a shoot, please include the following (with the location as title of message, please, as this helps me keep organized):
*Type of shoot
I have traveled to more than half the states in the last year. I'm either on the road or at home planning my next adventure.
June, July, August (tentative):
Cross country drive west
California, Oregon, Washington, British Columbia, Montana, Utah, Nevada...
If you don't see your city and want to make art, please message me anyways! I love an excuse to check out a place so don't hesitate to contact me if you are far away. Like I mentioned above, I am constantly planning my next adventure so if you are anywhere in the world and want to create something with me, just write. I may already be planning a trip your way. I always have a valid passport and am available for international travel.
Limitations: No spread leg. No pink shots. Nothing that seems more like a gynecological view than fine art. My limits are clearly shown throughout my work.
Compensation: This is not a hobby but a full time job for me. I feel fortunate to be able to do what I love for a living - it has been a lot of hard work thus far. I believe compensation is important as it shows the photographer is serious and values the model's time. If my rate is too much, throw me an offer! This is how I make my living. I'm happy to negotiate. I accept cash and PayPal.
Why I no longer do trade work.
Cancellation policy: Please only book me if you are certain we can shoot. I require 25% of the agreed upon rate if the shoot is canceled within a week of the date, 50% when cancelled within 48 hours, and 100% if canceled on the day of. If you cancel on me while I am traveling and do not respect my cancellation policy, I will not consider working with you in the future.
Models: I have a small black list of photographers I'd recommend not working with. Please feel free to contact me for references. I also shoot my own photographs and would probably love to take your portrait.
That all being said, let's create something brilliant together!
I have been extremely fortunate to work some amazing people over the years. Thank you all so much.

Testimonials from photographers I've worked with:
"A natural beauty with an angelic face. Artistically, creatively minded and a true collaborator in image creation. She’ll help to make images magical without getting in the way. That she’s a sweet person is just bonus!"
"I like working with cool, calm, no-drama models who are professional and get the job done without a fuss, and you were very much like that..."
"Ruby is a wonderful person and excellent model. She is a true artist and will exchange ideas with you to create images you won't believe. If you don't book her, you're missing out on a great opportunity."
