You can see my own photography too at http://www.taravioletniami.com
Please read this before contacting me: I am looking for paid work. I am primarily a photographer myself. I am not looking to test and 'expand' my portfolio. I am here to earn money to support my own photography and to work with photographers who inspire me. I work TFCD rarely. Please do not expect me to say 'yes' to all unpaid work.
Here's my photography account: http://www.modelmayhem.com/1012529.
I think of modeling as acting; I like to embody characters and evoke emotion. I am looking to work with photographers who are interested in the art of photography-not simply capturing conventional beauty.
I am currently a full-time BFA student in Brooklyn, New York though I go home to Los Angeles for vacations.
My rate: $50/hr-reasonable considering my background as an artist myself/experience; I was recently cast as an extra in Paul Thomas Anderson's new film Inherent Vice and for a lookbook for the fashion designer Samantha Pleet. Also, if you want to travel to a distant location please compensation for gas or if you are driving compensate for those hours spent traveling-my time is money. Please respect my work!
Message me on here if you have questions and concerns.
Inquire if photos are for print publication/commercial use.
