Mayhem # 2684334
My name is Mandie Jones. Often performing under the name Aradia Vine, I am a model, burlesque dancer, jazz/blues/psychedelic-rock singer, and actress.
Performing is my life, end of story. I do everything for the glamour. Literally, everything (I'm a proud Libra). Mind you, I am no diva. I am adamantly diplomatic in all aspects of my professional life, and it's a strong value of mine to uphold clean communication and fairness within all artistic collaborations and relationships in general. I find it important to lay this on the table. After all, a finished work of art is to be purposefully complete and conceptually whole, and this cannot be achieved without all involved parties being on that same level of thought and creative flow that is breathing inspiration into the project. We're all here on MM for the same thing, are we not?
My modeling experience mostly comes from amateur shoots with friends trying their hand at photography. When I was 17, I represented Glendale in the Miss California Teen 2011 pageant, and decided from that point to continue to pursue modeling. Miss USA being as mainstream as it gets, my idea of modeling didn't venture far from fashion, runway, and glamour. Being a petite model of 5'4, I found there wasn't a sizable market welcoming me. I did a few shoots here and there, the most notable being with GPS Studio Services for their photography workshops, which was not for print or release. Being in college at the time, it was mostly for fun.
Meeting the dawn of 2015, I have returned to Los Angeles and Model Mayhem to start again with the intention of pursuing modeling more purposefully. Ideally, that would somewhere entail getting to the grit of my own artistic vision, hopefully finding like-minded photographers to make some serious magic with, in contrast to having my face stamped onto a product advertisement or something of that nature. That's not to say that commercial projects are excluded from my range of interest, though. I am happily and eagerly open-minded.
What I will not do is shoot any adult material. Photos of an erotic nature must be explicitly tasteful (no pun intended) and uniquely artistic. That means no Hustler-style shots, school-girl skirts.. you know the drill. As mentioned above, I am a burlesque dancer and indeed fancy the art of exhibition, but let's keep it classy guys.
All that said, hello Los Angeles! Want to make some beautiful photos?
