NSFW. My profile is mostly nudes, with the occasional fetish photo here and there. If this bothers you, please do not peruse my photos.
Glad you found your way to my profile! If you'd like a faster response, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you'd like a print or are interested in hosting a gallery show, feel free to message me and I'll pass your information on to the photographer.
----I've grown up about an inch in the past year. All other stats, hair color/style remain the same. I've gotten a bit more muscle but my weight has remained the same.----
Scheduling into October for workshops, group shooting, and single shooting. I prefer outdoor shoots! I very rarely schedule anything during the same week, but hey, you could get lucky. And if you're an incredible photographer, there's always the chance I'll wake up at 6:00 AM to catch that ever-so-beautiful morning sunlight streaming in through your studio window. Never hurts to ask!
I understand that touching happens, especially in bondage situations and occasionally with prop arrangement. But if you, as a photographer, start presenting potential situations in which you would like to use your genitalia, I will be very free in informing other models in your area. I am not a shy and delicate flower waiting to be ravaged. If you attempt to use said genitalia in those proposed situations, I have no qualms with informing the police.
Film: Ideas welcome. I have dance background (some ballroom and bellydance) and I'm comfortable being on stage performing. I love erotica as long as there's an artistic component.
Couples/Duos/Other models: I love to! I'm comfortable working with both men and women and anyone in-between. I know there can often be a fine and relative line between 'porn' and 'art nude', but if your port is filled with stuff that looks like it could be in Playboy, I'm probably not that interested unless you have a different twist or particularly remarkable/social norm challenging idea.
Alternative stuff: One small thin-line tattoo on inside of lower right arm and a brand on the inside of my lower left arm. Burgundy dreadlocks. I can put these up and have it look fairly formal. All of my displayed photos are my current hair. Pierced ears, no gauges.
Style: I LOVE steampunk and tribal fusion/bellydance styles. A good portion of my wardrobe is Ralph Lauren type clothes because that's what tends to fit me the best. I'm fairly decent at making any clothes fit me somehow, while still keeping them intact (if that's required). All of the clothes/makeup on this port and my website have been styled by me unless otherwise indicated.
Makeup: Creative MUAs welcome! If you would like to work with one, I know a couple. Unless otherwise requested, I do makeup at your studio. It's nice if you have a well-lit mirror and a counter/sink but totally not necessary.
Fetish: Ideas welcome. Latex & leather = grand fun. Bondage won't happen unless I know you already and have seen your rigging style. I reserve the right to bring an escort to bondage shoots, but if I know you and know how you rig, you're probably already friends with my escorts. I am able to self-tie and self-suspend.
Nudes: Depends on the photographer and her/his portfolio, but I have no problem with doing them. My weight doesn't fluctuate.
Blood, gritty, dirty, uncomfortable = yes.
Carnival themed anything = yes.
Creepy doll things = yes.
Steampunk = uhhuh yup.
Burlesque/bellydance/tribal = yes.
Underwater = yes! I am a swimmer and was a dancer so I think that could turn out to be ridiculously gorgeous.
Non-pretty things = yep. Weirdly grotesque has its own certain charm. I've been working on my creepy face.
Payment: This is a job for me, so please message me for rates. If you're able to provide any of the items on my barter list, I can work to fit into your budget. If you are an art/film/photog student or intern in the Baltimore/Bel Air areas, I will quite probably be willing to shoot TF with you. If you are a model trying to move into photography in the same geographical areas, hit me up; I'll probably shoot TF with you, too. If you have a out-of-the-ordinary camera, shooting/processing procedure, or super crazy idea for an exhibition, I'd love to hear about it! It's not an insult to your skill level if I don't want to do TF with you, I just might not need your style for the direction I'm taking my portfolio.
**Good quality wigs or gift cards/discounts to a wig store**
-If you can find/buy/loan me a handpan drum/'hang' drum or access to a handpan, it's quite probable that you will have a model for life.
-Well made masks
-Fabric with unusual texture/color/history
-Dance lessons (preferably ballroom, but contemporary would be interesting)
I have a lot of ideas, but I know when to stay quiet. I heartily welcome suggestions and tips!
While I'm often quiet, I appreciate respectful and polite behavior to no end! I love helping to create images. If you are polite and respectful, I can give you so much more energy for the photos than if I have to expend energy trying to stave off your advances.
I hold scheduling sacred. If I don't show up, I've been in a car accident. If I've been in an accident, I'll probably be texting you that I'll be late in the midst of the wreckage.
I am primarily an art nude model, but it's nice to put some clothes on sometimes to mix it up a little. I love finding photographers (particularly women!) who would like to push the envelope as far as content and social acceptability goes. Blood (fake, preferably, ha), snakes, political, religious, "dark" themes all welcome for perusal and discussion!
Thanks for reading and I hope to speak with you soon!
