Hello, I am Belinda Van Brackle! My company name is ShivaInk. I am a published model and aspiring photographer who enjoys the art of using the human form as an outlet for expression. I was born on July 25th, 1980. I have fifteen strategically placed tattoos. My passions are modeling, dance and photography. My goal here on Model Mayhem is to build a strong network of contacts to further develop my experience both as a model and a photographer. Though quite different, being on both sides of the camera has given me insight and experience that I want to continue to expand upon.
My interests include conceptual videography for dance, modeling for band sites, modeling for various clothing styles spanning rock, gothic, and alternative pinup. Pinup modeling is my personal favorite. Betty Paige is my inspiration, I love Dita Von Tease’ iconic style and Leigh Bowery is my favorite artist. Most of all I believe the human body is a beautiful art form unto itself. Both modeling and photography give me the mediums to express myself and allow me to capture these feelings and moments as I see and experience them.
Whether as model or a photographer, I am professional, punctual and dedicated to making every photo shoot a success. As a model, there are a few rules that I work by. My preference is for paid photo shoots. However, I will consider TFP if the shoot has an interesting or unique concept, if it is with either published or fine art photographers only. I will also consider TFP if the shoot includes other models that are published. A makeup artist must be provided. As a professional, I will also not work in environments with either drugs or alcohol. Also any model release form must be sent within at least 24 hours for viewing before the shoot. I take these requirements seriously. I really enjoy this art form and have respect for the time and effort by the photographer please respect my time also. If you are someone who is just interested in nudes and that is your main objective please keep it moving. This is my body and image I call the shots when it comes to what feels right for the moment.
I want to thank everyone in advance for taking the time to look at my Model Mayhem page as I work towards my artistic goal of beauty through creativity.
