About MeI'm not on here as much as I'd like to be. Check out my casting calls, and click my Facebook page to message me.
I'm also open for doing TF for publishing in alternative magazines. Some examples are: any tattoo magazine (Inked, Skin & Inked ,Tattoo, Flash, Rebel Ink, Savage, Inked Girls, etc) Pin up (Pistol, Bachelor Pad, Retro Lovely, Bizzare, Temptress, The Cat's Meow, Rebel Rodz, etc) and Fetish and goth (Licked, Burlesque, Girls and Corpses, Rabid, Gothic Beauty, etc) You get the idea. The tattoo mags, PLEASE be heavily tattooed. One little tattoo on your arm won't work. It'll be a waste of our time. I have a hair and makeup artist as well as special effects artist to work with. You'll have to provide you're own clothes. Corsets must be REAL corsets. I'm going to be picky about this stuff because why half ass do it if theres no chance of getting published. It's something we all want right?
Contact me for my rates.
For *limited* TF Model Mayhem shoots, I am available Sundays and Mondays unless otherwise noted. Contact me for my openings. I generally shoot between 12 or 1pm until about 4-5pm, depending on location and type of shoot. I really can't budge much out of this, unless it's paying.
TFP statement: Much like yourself, I am trying to build a career doing something I love while creating a wonderful byproduct called money. I have a family and a business to run. I HAVE to limit trade shoots. I love shooting, and it's hard to resist any opportunity to shoot, but in honor of the craft and professionalism of this industry I will be limiting trade. Not to say I never will, I put out casting calls for idea's that I have. But I will not shoot for free unless it's my shoot and my idea's. I'm picky, sorry thats just how it goes.
I am also available for travel as long as I'm compensated for gas and lodging.
There are projects I am dying to have in my port, so these I'm more willing to do for free, but most of these require money for props and wardrobe and makeup. Just because i'm willing to do them for free, I can't say that my MUA is.
Zombie's (the more the better!)
Pin up (all kinds, but the more eccentric the better)
Old Hollywood Glamour
Ballerina (but with a very dark twist)
Latex Pin Up
Day of the Dead
Pink candy crazy frilly stuff
Stripper Pole (I know a girl who teaches it)
People I want to work with:
Burlesque fashion designers
People who redo furniture
Special effects artists
People who build steam punk items
People who own hot rods
And of course other photographers. Any chance I have to watch someone else work is a learning opportunity for me. If any other photographers out there want a second hand I'm always up for that, given I'm available.
Be prepared, I will make you move your body! Looking for models who pose out of the norm. If you're new to this, try and have an open mind to posing. I like poses that are abstract and a little unnatural. I'll help you with this, just give it a try! ;)
My influences range from soft butterflies landing gently on a newborn babies pinkie toe in the morning light to midnight zombie brain-eating housewives who listen to black metal and bathe in fire.
Check out my list and you'll get a pretty good idea of the looks I like, and what I'm thinking about during our shoots.
CreditsAngie Mckown does the majority of my hair and makeup, but she is not on MM currently.
