About MeHi there! I'm a currently a full-time digital media teacher (photography, video, animation), and part-time fitness instructor. I was on MM a couple of years ago, but due to conflicts with my job I had to close my account. I truly miss modeling and the people I met along the way, so I have decided to try and get back on the grid.
I am mostly looking for TFP, although I know we can't all work for free, so if a great opportunity comes up for a shoot I would need to pay for, I would try to do my best to make it happen. Since I teach photoshop I can retouch my own photos if needed on any TFP.
I am definitely looking to expand my portfolio with shoots in Fitness, Dance, Professional/Commercial, and anything out of the ordinary and fun.
Please note I will NOT do nudes or body paint!!! Please don't try and convince me otherwise, not going to happen! Lingere is questionable... would depend on the focus of the shoot.
Also, I have been a Hooters girl, so if you're the photographer that spends their days in Hooters (or Iron Thunder or the like) getting girls to model for you... I'm not interested. If your portfolio looks like you take pictures in the local motel with your Nikon Cool Pics camera... I'm not interested.
I am not, nor will I ever be America's Next Top Model. I am looking to work with professional people I can learn from and grow with. I take every experience as a learning experience and always take something away from a shoot that I can share with my students to make them better as well. Teaching photography I know there are amazing up-and-coming photographers out there who just need to expand their portfolio, make-up artists wanting to play with a wild idea they've had, as well as professionals looking to try out new equipment and ideas... for that, I'm your girl!!!
Got an idea, or running a special, please contact me! I have my summers off, so now is a perfect time to shoot. :)
