My look is versatile - from "interesting" to outlandish, editorial to conceptual. I am not squeamish and enjoy challenging projects. I love style, stylisation, kitsch, wit, irony, theatrical decadence, madness, outrageousness and extravagance, with a pinch of vulgarity and a glazing of sick sense of humour.
I am a pro photo retoucher. I can also do makeup, styling and art directing, I have experience with building sets. I enjoy contributing to the assignment as much as I can.
Finally, I'm sorry but I don't work with amateur photographers, I do not do test shots, I do not need to expand my portfolio, and I almost never work TFP, or with photographers who can't provide references and a portfolio of published work. Unpaid work only for unusually exciting and rewarding projects and a guaranteed tearsheet.
Please don't ask for test/TFP because refusal may offend.
