ATTENTION: I AM ONLY ACCEPTING PAID WORK AT THIS TIME!!!!!!
However, exceptions will be made for projects involving tear sheets, video airings, and publications. Photographers/MUA's/hairstylists that I have already worked with in the past get the exception too, of course:-). TFP's will also be considered in exchange for paid travel expenses to locations of interest. I reside in the L.A. area for my training but have recently moved from Las Vegas and travel back there as well as to New York, Toronto, Washington, and Oregon frequently. In addition to modeling I am also focusing on voice-overs, paid promotions, and hosting for filmed and televised events. I have been training with a performing aerial arts school for Tissue (fabric aerialism) but am recovering from an injury at the moment so I have a little more time for collaborating than I usually would. I am also currently working on sets as a versatile featured extra (blonde, brunette, and red hair styles available). If you feel you possess an exceptional portfolio and can add a crucial element to mine, please contact me with information regarding your project and who you plan on using for collaborating talent.
I have been modeling for six years now and I am especially appreciative of creative-minded fashion/art photographer's ideas and feedback . I am looking to do print work as well as live events and film. Although most of my portfolio contains fashion and swim wear, I am looking to diversify my look and add as much versatility to my portfolio as possible. I am especially interested in collaborating with makeup artists and wardrobe for commercial print work ideas.
I have fair skin and access to a very good airbrush tanning specialist, so I am very versatile on skin tone. I would also love to work (or just try new ideas) with hairstylists who are experienced in creating drastic and diverse looks. I do not do nudes (no exceptions!), but I am okay with implied nudity as long as it's a tastefully done high fashion shot. I am slender, but I have fairly defined muscle making fitness modeling also an option.
I am an ex-competitive swimmer and have shot underwater and would love the opportunity to do so again. I am able to shoot in various conditions, comfortable or not :-). I am very open to travel as long as accommodations are covered and I travel to Oregon, L.A., and New York fairly often. I can do my own hair and makeup if needed, and have access to an extensive swim wear and high fashion wardrobe. I do have naturally curly hair, which must be taken into consideration when arranging hair styling elements. I own a wide range of natural, life-like wigs to use on television/movie sets as well as for promo modeling when a particular hair color/look is needed.
Some of my modeling experience includes hosting a five week-long model search for Venus Swimwear, as well as providing events planning and sponsoring leading up to the shows. I have done print work for Dean Varni Jeans as well as on-site modeling for Valentino of Las Vegas for private trunk shows and also in conjunction with Luxury Las Vegas Magazine and 944 Magazine. I have modeled live for artist/painter Michael Wardle at his charity event hosted by Ghostbar (Palms Casino, Las Vegas) as well as represented Fashion Television during the filming of their official launch party for North America (held at Pure nightclub in Caesar's Palace- a short video clip can be viewed at http://www.ftv.com/fashion/page.php?P=741&id=26469). I am comfortable on stage and with microphones, and adapt quickly on short notice.
If you have further inquiries or projects to discuss, please contact me by way of the e-mail: email@example.com.
