About Me

My name is Victoria and I started occasionally modeling locally in October 2010. My first passion since the age of 6 had been acting. After taking a nearly 10 year break from acting, I got involved in community theater again in the spring of 2010. Little did I know that I would unintentionally discover a new passion for modeling.

The story goes like this: I modeled as a favor for a few friends small business promotional materials and a senior art project. I continued modeling every now and again when contacted by local photographers who thought my look was different and wanted to collaborate on pin-up, boudoir, and goth styled shoots. Along the way, modeling became main creative outlet, as it was more convenient to put a day aside for shooting with a full college course load versus several months for a theater production. I still auditioned for plays and received roles in three local short films, but in late 2014, I started feeling that acting was not nearly as full-fulling for me as it once was. Modeling had not only taken it's place, it had far exceeded what I thought possible for a passion to fulfill in me.

I was no longer running away to escape myself by becoming consumed by a stranger's story and reciting another writer's words. I was running toward the real me and discovering what was really important to me. After years of “Should I really go for this modeling thing? I don't look like anyone else. There must be no market for me.” I finally crossed the bridge. I was no longer to able deny the photographic evidence I have unique look that I strive to improve upon with every shoot, as well as feeling a real change and confidence that infiltrated it's way inside me, the more shoots I completed. I began loving and accepting who I am (a work in progress, like everyone), what I can contribute to the modeling world, even with my body and features not fitting into the typical model mold.

My FB modeling page doesn't have millions of “likes” and I don't get 50 comments on each new photo telling me I'm beautiful. And, I'm okay with that. There are so many stunning ladies who work their butts off, have the same or even bigger goals and dreams than I do in this world. Variety is the spice of life, and there is room for us all. So far this year, my new mindset, dedication to practicing craft, making more time to do what I love as well as living healthy and getting fit, not worrying what others think or relying on them for valdation- has been serving me well! I've scheduled more photoshoots in the first half of this new year, than I ever had in years prior and couldn't be more honored to work with the talent I have thus far. I'm increbily lucky and never forget it.

I still use the skills I learned over the years from acting into helping me become a better model. I believe I take more of an actor's view on modeling. Rather than just pouting and posing- trying to look pretty, hot, sexy, etc.- I look at my make-up, hair, costuming, and kind of embody the character it makes me feel.

I have done hair+ make-up, pin-up, boudoir, fashion, bridal, casual, commercial, and gothic style shoots. I would like to expand into other genres and make my portfolio more well rounded in hopes by the end of this year-early next year, I can start doing something I never thought I'd have the courage to do: submitting to agencies and see what happens. I am a very practical person with a good head on my shoulders. I am very aware of my limitations in the professional modeling world and what a competieve buisness it is, but if you're willing to work really hard (something I pride myself one), it doesn't hurt to try. :)

I will not do nudes or pornographic photography. I do hold the right to bring an escort with me to any meetings and photo shoots. I'm looking to do more 'Time for Print' to add to my portfolio. I'm using Model Mayhem as a tool to connect with other photographers, models, creative minds. I look forward to learning, honing my craft, working with new people, and gaining experience. I have been complimented that I am relaible, easy to work with, and take direction well. At the moment, I am able to travel for shoots within the Florida area with notice. In the Florida area or planning a visit? Recognize the name of a photographer, make-up artist, hairstylist, clothing store owner, designer, etc. I have worked with credited here or on my FB modeling page? Feel free to contact them for references to see if I'm the right model for a current or future project. :)

Depending on the assignment, I am also a fan of being a guinea pig, as such, to help photographers, make-up artists, hairstylists, designers, etc. try a new idea they've been sitting on and interested in trying, but haven't found a model who is open to doing more artsy shoots and seeing what we can create. I have done this many times and it is so much fun to collaborate as a team on projects like this! I am not squeamish over much, and am willing to be uncomfortably hot, cold, dirty, wet, mosquito bitten, the list goes on: to captured a beautiful photo that let's all involved see their vision come to life. In fact, nothing makes me happier be a part of something like that.

If you'd like to bounce an idea for a shoot off me, please send me a message! I have a Pinterest account (http://pinterest.com/vicelizaonpin/) filled with boards just for photoshoot themes, make-up, and styling ideas. I also have my full portfolio to date on my Facebook Modeling page linked above. Please take a peek at both.

I am 30 years old, 5ft. 1.5in. inches tall with fair skin. I have dyed black hair with red peek-a-boo highlights that hits my shoulder blades. I have a petite, but *naturally* curvy frame. If you're interested in working with me, please take a look at my measurements first, so it's not surprise I'm not thin as a toothpick, flat as a board, or 6 feet tall! I have both earlobes double pierced. I'd describe my look as bombshell pin-up, or old Hollywood glamour with a splash of goth, but can be versatile and have the ability to pull of different looks.

Thank you for reading and best of luck to all with your creative endeavors to all the Model Mayhemers! :)
