About MeI am picking up where I left off; will be wanting to shoot more this year now that things are settling down. Thanks for being patient last year!
During high school, I was asked to model dresses for an Ao Dai store being featured in a Vietnamese/English magazine. Life and college happened but ever since I started working at a skate shop and later on tattoo shop, I figured hey wth?
I love skate/tattoo/alt/pin-up culture so I want to FOCUS MORE of my modeling in this area but am open to other opportunities!
I do not really filter who is adding me on here so if you are trying to work with me please send me a personal message (make sure you have a few concepts/themes that you would like to do or see me in... it makes things easier on both ends by having both of us on the same page)! I appreciate the tags, comments, etc. but may not always have time to reply so please don't be offended =]
It may take me some time to reply so please don't feel like I'm ignoring you! I do read the msgs but may not have time to reply yet. Everyone's gotta work to pay the bills! PLEASE NOTE: that I have a real job which I must go to 6-7 days a week for 10-11 hours/day so MY TIME IS VALUABLE AND I AM NOT A FLAKE =]
Due to new experiences encountered: if you are a photographer who likes to meet beforehand to talk about concept, I am totally alright with that. However, if you flake on meeting me without a 24-hour notice then I will cancel the shoot for obvious reasons. You cannot keep to your word on meeting when it is what you want to do, then you probably cannot keep your word on shooting.
I am focusing more on paid shoots and have a very reasonable rate. If I feel that your work will add to my portfolio, prices are negotiable. Selected TF available, if the work is published or you're bad ass a photographer!
I do tastefully implied nude but otherwise the goods are gonna be kept hidden =]! Please feel free to ask more about this if you are somehow confused by this term, I don't bite.
If we set up a shoot, I have the right to bring an escort. Yes, he is my BF and he stays out of the way and appreciates the art that I create with another photographer, meaning no distractions or whatever traumatizing problems you have experienced with whatever silly crazy retards in the past. If this is an issue then unfortunately we will not work together, but I still wish you all the best =]!
I have done my own hair and make up in most of the photos (unless otherwise stated) in my portfolio (would love to do TF with hair/make up artists so please contact if interested!).
With that all finally said, let's create some amazing art!
