About MeModeling has always been a dream of mine. I'm really working on building a solid portfolio right now. If you are interested in working with me just send me a message. I would love to gain more experience and learn from you! This is something I love so I try to be incredibly professional on every shoot I do, paid or not. I still know how to have fun, though. I have ended up having a great time on every shoot I've done, and I've always left with at least a few new friends.
Modeling is, to me, about being a living breathing canvas for the photographer's artistic vision, and I will do whatever it takes to bring your vision to life. I am an artist myself, so I think it gives me a little bit of perspective, although I'm not a photographer in anything but the amateur sense; painting, dancing and acting are my passions, along with modeling. I think what you all do is amazing! The way such real emotion can come from an image, every little angle and detail matters (and can completely change a photo's meaning) and the intense effect an image can have on the mind has always mystified me. I can definitely understand the frustration you can feel when models aren't cooperating or aren't actively trying to help you achieve the image I know you have in your mind. This is why I always maintain a positive attitude and try to keep everyone involved excited about the concept of the shoot.
I'm enthusiastic and willing to try most anything! I am just starting out, but I know it's important to form a respectful, professional relationship with the photographers who are giving me experience, after all, the photographers I've worked with chose to work with me, they were not forced to, and I think that's an important thing to respect about Model Mayhem. I show up to a shoot or a show ready for anything and open to learning, creative criticism has really helped me become a better model! I love shoots with hair and make up that may seem a little "weird." I possess a deep love for all things strange. I would really love the chance to do any sort of cosplay shoot as I'm a closet nerd!
I'm currently going back and forth between Northern Virginia and Richmond quite a lot and I'm often running all over Maryland, so this is where the majority of my shoots have been in the past but I'm always open to travel. I love a good road trip or plane ride! If you're at all interested in shooting with me, or have any questions about my past work, just let me know with a comment or a message!
