I am Devana Lux and I am not from this planet. Im passionate about art, beauty and creation. I have been getting comfortable behind the camera for a few years but now I feel its time that I step out in front of it.
I am an alternative model but open to doing many styles of modeling and have a versatile style and wardrobe. I can play many characters but my daily style I would describe as a grunge gypsy. I have experience in cosmetology so I can do my own hair and makeup.
I love to have a professional, fun, inspiring and creative experience when working with others. I am trying to build my portfolio and I want it to consist of art, not just photos. I am looking to add agency quality images to my portfolio.
I prefer compensation but I will do TF. This is if I feel you are capable of doing something I already wanted to try, have a unique concept of your own, or includes tearsheets/publication ( I am more likely to do trade work if MUA(H) is involved & will work for wardrobe
). Otherwise message me for rates, they are reasonable & negotiable.
My interests lie in a variety of styles and concepts including
Creative video work
Polaroids/35 MM/Any vintage camera
Avant garde Beauty
Any work with designers/webstores
I change my look a lot I currently have very long black box braids (sides still shaved in a mohawk) + one single natural dread on the back lower left (i own dread installations and wigs when needed) , 7 tattoos, nostril, septum and medusa pierced. Septum can be hidden. I plan on adding to my collection of body art.
I take my work seriously and I do not cancel shoots so I hope that my time can also be respected as I respect yours and plans will be followed through. This includes messages. Please do not send me a message inquiring about a shoot if you do not plan on following through with the shoot.
"If it wasn't for Devana Lux Anaved I would not do half the things i do today! She is extremely inspiring to me as a photographer and as a model. Devana is professional and very creative as a photographer and MUA. Her style simply cannot be defined and she'll be sure to add something to your portfolio that you don't already have. And if you are new to the whole modeling scene she is great at giving out pointers to help make you look your best! I highly recommend her as a photographer to anyone who is interested in modeling because she is completely unique and also happens to be one of my favorite photographers that I've had the pleasure of working with!" - Holly Monroe (Holly Monroe Photography)

"And I must say it was a pleasure working with you also. You definitely bring the drama. That's in a good way." - Edgar Thompson (Edgar Thompson Photography)
"I agree, that we had a great and fun shoot last week. I am working on your images now, and the more I look at them, the more impressed I am with your modeling skills -- both posing and expression. They are subtle, but strong and come across very well. I would be great to work with you on other projects. "
