* I am currently looking for some local female models of different sizes and ages for several projects, some of which are paid work for a clothing company. Please let me know if you would be interested.*
I grew up playing with my mom's Nikon, but I've finally decided to get more serious with my photography this year. I'm transitioning from modeling which I've done for almost 7 years over into hair, makeup, and photography. Hair and makeup work for photographers was what got me into the business in the first place and it's still something I enjoy doing.
I love nothing more than making other people feel beautiful and that is my goal with my photography. I'm looking for people in my area to work with to gain more experience and grow my portfolio. Most of my current experience is in family photography, but I am branching out into model photography and pin-up/boudoir photography since they are something that I enjoyed when modeling.
I would like to photograph a wide range from casual life style photography up to artistic nudes. I'm looking to start in the clothed photography at this point and work my way up. While I'm not against shooting nudes (mostly what I did as a model) I would much prefer to build a broad portfolio of clothed work to show to potential clients. I'm more than happy to do TF with those interested, I tend to have a photo turn around time of 2-3 weeks depending on number of edits. I let the model choose which photos they would like to have me edit and then either send them the files online or a disc of finished images in the mail. I require ID and a signed model release of all models that I work with to protect everyone's interests. If you have any questions please ask, I'm pretty laid back.
Although I consider myself just starting in photography I have already built a more natural glamor style look to my photos. I prefer to do as little photoshop as possible to let a person's natural beauty shine through.
