****NB: Currently based in Canberra - the location listing reflects next area of travel I'm currently booking for.*****

  T r a v e l:
Canberra: May 2016
Brisbane: 22nd - 30th June 2016
Sydney: July 2016

Want to shoot? I travel based on booking demand - so if you want to work with me, let it be known and I will be more likely to visit your area - in Australia or internationally.


Professional Australian fine art nude model. I'm also experienced in other genres, though art will always hold a special place in my heart. Genuinely passionate about what I do, thrive on creativity of all kinds, am very patient, understanding, easy going and easy to work with - and always willing to take that extra risk or go that extra mile for to get the shot!


Someone who is: Reliable, never flakes, easygoing, creative and professional. All that good stuff. If wanted, I'm happy to offer creative input to help bring your idea to life, I also have experience as a photographer and know about the technical side of things too.
I also know what I'm doing: I have experience in a diverse array of photographic genres and styles, have modelled for digital and film photography including wet plate, large format, polaroid, as well as video. I have worked with both local, interstate and international photographers, with designers, hairstylists, muas, bodypainters, event organisers, workshops, students etc. 

LIMITS and Things I don't do:
• Bikini/high-key glamour
• Body-paint
• I will not feign smiles, surprise faces etc as that is out of character for me - I prefer to be genuine
• No pornography, crotch shots, 'orgasm faces' or 'spread' shots
• Anything construed as fetish (unless I know you very well)
• Pose with other models - male or female - unless I know them and it is previously agreed

Other Things You Should Know:
• Happy to work with amateurs or seasoned professionals alike - and offer creative input
• Have been involved in varying fields of the performing and visual arts all my life.
• I have two unobtrusive tattoos, easily coverable/hardly noticeable - as you can  see from my images.
• I have (neat) 'art model bush' and no I will not shave for our shoot
• I check references wink and have many that can vouch for me if you're curious!

If you wanna work with me...
NO TFP EVER - I already have more awesome photos than I could ever know what to do with. I absolutely love what I do, there are much simpler ways to make a living and I couldn't dedicate my life to this if it wasn't a true passion - but I've still got to eat, pay rent and clothe myself.

If you are able to provide accommodations during my travels, I am willing to consider this in determining compensation.   

If you don't think you can afford to work with me, throw me a number and I'll see what I can do, this is my job, but I also believe in art and helping other creatives.

• Half and full day discounts. 
• 50% cancellation fee within a week. 100% within 24hrs. This goes for flakes and no-shows too! Thank you to those who have honoured this - to those who haven't, I've kept track. 

Don't be inconsiderate, this is a small community, models talk.

Little Extra Things
Please be aware that while I'm travelling I have delayed reply times for messages as I can't always access the internet, messages will be replied to asap in order of urgency. Thanks!

I do not discuss/organise/negotiate shoots over the phone, it is important for me to have the conversation history in writing so I can easily refer back to it!
