At this time I'm interested in working with designers, fashion boutiques, commercial/print work, promotional work, paid shoot-outs, etc.
**BOOKING FOR DECEMBER 2013**
Find me on IG: LisaJModels or L_JONES_88
A little bit about me and my style:
~My name is Lisa J, born 11/17/88.
WHAT I'M HERE FOR:
-Network w/ PROFESSIONALS
-Learn as much as I can
WHAT I'M NOT HERE FOR:
-a date/party/swinging...take it somewhere else
-a boyfriend on the side (one is enough, thanks)
-wasting my time (please don't waste my time)
-terms of endearment (don't call me "baby". I have a man for that. Please respect that)
~I treat modeling like I would any other job. There is a time for play and a time for being serious in the industry. Therefore, I am very punctual. I'd rather be an hour early than a minute late so I can guarantee that I will always show up early for a shoot; even if call time is 6 am. I work hard and I take feedback from the photographer very well. If the photographer isn't happy, than I'm not happy. I've come to learn, the more idiotic or incredibly awkward the pose, the better the image. I enjoy learning and in this industry I am always learning something new.
~ ALSO, I understand that things come up, things change, a photographer finds a more suitable model for a gig at the last second....PLEASE!!! I ask that if for ANY reason you do not want to continue with a shoot (be it model, photographer, MUA, or hair stylist) then let me know ASAP. I do not bite and I won't put you on a "list" of people not to work with- I don't believe I need to lend a hand in ruining someone's career, that person will obviously do enough damage to their career on their own; they don't need my assistance. I don't need to know the minute details as to why you can't proceed with the shoot, just a simple message would be at least common courtesy. I have my email posted at the very top of my page and I respond to all private messages on MM with my direct phone number so there is absolutely no excuse not to get in touch with me if you have to cancel. I have plenty of other people I could work with. All I ask is that you do not waste my time. Modeling is not my "hobby" it is a "passion". Please repsect that.
~ Booking work: Simple, email me or PM me here with your ideas.
~I am a full time employee as well as a Biology student. Therefore, timing is of the essence for me. Please, all I ask when scheduling shoots with me is that you give more than a day or two notice that you want to work together. I book work very quickly and may not have open availability until the next month.
~ Wardrobe: I have a pretty diverse wardrobe to choose from. 95% of the clothes/accessories/shoes seen in my port are mine. I am constantly on the look out for new stuff. Thrift stores, consignment shops, and garage sales are by far my favorite places to shop for new wardrobe...it feeds an addiction
~ Available for TF and Paid assignments. Rates are negotiable and I'm also willing to barter. Just ask.
~I don't like boring, simple, snore...I prefer color, action, eye candy, heart gripping, emotion evoking...art. I love to try new things, new ideas, collaborate with multiple people at once...shoot me your ideas and most likely I'll be up for it! I'd love to do more body painting, edgy (hard to define but anything different), pin ups, bright colors, grunge, mixing fashion with trash...you get the idea, I'm open minded!
~ I can NOT work with people who are stiff, arrogant, and snooty...substitute your own word, you get the idea. I love to laugh and I prefer to work with those who know how to crack a smile during a shoot. I just want to be comfortable...I understand modeling is work but it doesn't have to be hard work.
~ As a model, I'm only 1 part to the image being created. As a photographer, you have the eye. You have the image already in your mind. PLEASE communicate that vital piece of information to me. I want to help you get the best image you envision. Without communication/feedback from the photographer, I have NO direction other than my own (which may not be what you are hoping to capture). So please do not be afraid to tell me what you want, what you like, dont like, want to try, hate or loathe. This will help us create art. It's that simple.
~ My goal is to meet new people from every aspect of the fashion industry and learn new things. I LOVE learning..been a nerd since forever and a day. I'm interested in expanding my book to reflect my versatility. When working with me, you will find that very little scares me and I'm up to try just about anything. Even if it means jumping into the middle of sawgrass to get that perfect shot (just keep the alligator snapping turtles away from my toes)
~I also LOVE coffee. I'm more than willing, and quite prefer, to meet a photographer, MUA, stylist, ect. over some coffee before shooting. I mean if you carve out some time in your insanely busy schedule to have a cup of brew and meet the model you will be working with it breaks down any awkwardness and barriers that may still be up when you first show up to shoot. Plus when it comes time to shoot you will know what you're getting; appearance and personality wise. I'll pay, don't let a $5 cup of coffee stop you from breaking the ice.
Thank you all for taking the time to read my profile and I look forward to working with talented individuals! Anything else, feel free to drop a line!
Have a good day!
