I’m a tornado disguised as a woman. Mance Rayder's Road Manager coming at you from the wild North. I’m from Woodstock- the concert never happened here, but the hippies still stuck around.
**Quick things: Please read profile carefully as it may answer some questions. The quickest way to reach me is by email - see notice below for contact information. At the moment, I am not accepting any trade shoots due to a series of unfortunate events.
I apologize for the inconvenience for people. **
I love working with amateurs and professional photographers alike. I hold a BFA in photography and love incorporating that into my modeling by playing with light and environment; I am able to come up with ideas at a moment's notice and love to watch art come alive whether I am in front of or behind the camera.
**I am in the early stages of planning a bigger European tour in Fall 2014** A Florida (possibly November 2014) trip is also in the works! -- Please note! I am looking at the process of moving overseas in 2015. I will be announcing my last US tour in the next few months. **
And the last few things:
-In general - I cannot accept TF work. This is my career; I can't work for free. While photos are nice, my doctor's offices won't accept nude photos as a form of payment and between two major car accidents, I have a lot of medical bills. Please respect this fact and don't be offended by it. If you don't think you can afford it, just throw me a number. This is how I make a living. This is my full-time job and I take this very seriously. This being said- I am always willing to negotiate so try me out!
LIMITED TRADE FOR: For plane tickets/travel expenses or for tear sheets, super epic concepts or ideas, full-team shoots, and submissions to major publications.
(You can also purchase something from my wishlist here
, though only certain things will count towards a shoot.)
-Limits: no spread or gynecological examinations, no insertion, nothing pornographic, nothing fake. Not against it for others, just not into it for myself. I would rather be genuine and have that come across in my work than fake it just for a paycheck.
-I do have a valid passport and am willing to travel. I am often on the road so if you don't see your city listed anywhere, message me and I can try to start planning a trip out!
-While very nice and greatly appreciated: FR, tags, lists, and comments are ineffective means of booking me. Please send me a message.
-Cash or paypal are the only payment methods I currently accept. If paying by PayPal, payment must be received within 48 prior
to the shoot.
-I will not sign a release prior to shooting.
I'm a photographer as well and I understand that once a model release is signed, it protects ONLY the photographer. The model is only protected up until the moment that she signs the release; once it is signed, the model has signed away her rights and if you happen to get things that are outside of her limits unknowingly or knowingly, then the model often doesn't have any protection and the release gets used by the photographer as a catch-all. I have had a very bad experience with this very early on in my career and am very strict on this fact. I have absolutely no problem signing the release after
the shoot, but please respect this fact and understand that I will not sign my rights away prior to anything happening. It is for my own protection.
-I do have some tattoos- 10 total though most people do not know I have that many. Two of them are somewhat larger (one on my right arm continuing with birds onto my shoulder and one across my right rib cage), but the others are smaller. Again, you can look on any of the above sites to see what they look like/visibility; my left side only has one tattoo around my hip that is visible and I am familiar with posing around it.
Please only book me if you are certain we can shoot. I require 25% of the agreed upon rate if the shoot is canceled within a week of the date, 50% when cancelled within 48 hours, 100% when cancelled within 24 hours/day of. If you flake on me while I am currently traveling, please note that you will not be given a second chance. Refusal to respect this policy will result in a place in my blacklist book [that is shared with fellow models].
