I have been a makeup artist for 6 years and a *working* photographer for 4. Basically, I didn't always like how other photographers captured my work as a makeup artist, so I decided to learn the craft. All of the photos in my portfolio were taken by me, and all of the makeup and styling I did myself.
I always have ideas brewing in my head, and I like to be creative with the photos... not your typical portrait studio chick. I like bold and dark statements in art and really love the visual drama. I do love to work with others, but I think it is an asset to be a one man show. It is cheaper for a client to have hair, makeup, wardrobe, set design, photography, and retouching from the same person.
If you are local and would like to work with me, please send me a message with your offer and we can certainly negotiate.
