About MeI love becoming a work of art. Not in a narcissistic way, but not entirely unselfish either. I love the feeling of contributing to an artistic work or the inspiration/development of an artist. I never got passed the decent level with guitar and I'm actually half-decent at graphic design, but there's something different about the work I get to be a part of or want to. So far my exposure to modeling has helped me to get over certain fears and gotten me out of my comfort zone. It's given me enriching experiences that I feel you can only get from the arts.
Now, "art" means so much to me, it's not just the high, classic arts. I love the emerging work being done in bodypainting, which I've yet to really get to model for(hint hint). I think bodypaint artists are really honing in on the beauty and magic and tribal nature of the human spirit. Some of the stuff I see is so beautiful and I'd love to be a part of it.
I've worked for individual artists, a BYOB paint n sip studio (great business model btw, those ladies' nights get a lot of turnout and everyone has such a genuinely good time, I keep thinking I should find an artist and start pop up byob paint n sip classes with her on the side). I've worked some events as a dessert plate and a server, which was interesting. I've posed for the classic figure model classes and I've even been a Penis model for a wonderful feminist artist doing a project that was commenting on how there's such an abundance of male photographers objectifying the female model's body in a sexualized way, as well as male photographers with male models, but somehow is taboo or vastly underrepresented for a female artist to capture the male form in an objectified way. The project was great to be a part of and turned out well and even though it was in a way overtly sexual, it was satirical and meaningful and I was happy that I never felt a sexual energy coming from myself or the artist and it was all about the art, despite the content. I think it's important for male models especially to be able to draw that line whilst still being able to delve into those realms.
Anyway, I'm rambling. I have references and what I can say for myself is that I put my heart in it, I can stand still, show up on time, communicate and listen, give notice way ahead of time on the rare occasion I do have to reschedule, respect you as the co-model or artist, and dive into various expressions to see your/our vision come to light to your liking.
I started out doing this for free to get some exposure, experience and references. Then I only did paid work. Now, I want to fill my portfolio so am willing to accept TF work if it's a collaboration, I get to fill some holes in my portfolio(couples, figure drawings/paintings, fantasy, bodypaint, less-sexual nude work). I haven't modeled in a while as I've been traveling and working (desk job). I love the relationship between muse and artist so if I feel you're someone I'd be comfortable posing for and collaborating with, I'd also be open to non-pro work.
