About MeELLE; the name I chose.
NOEL; the name I was given.
I spent days, weeks, months, looking at other model’s portfolios and asking myself, “Why can’t I do that? Why don’t I have spectacular shots like those? Why isn’t my portfolio so inspirational?” The answer was obvious, although not to myself for a while; simply because I was not putting any effort into making myself into the model I wanted to be, I wasn’t even trying at ALL, but realized that I had to try to improve even if I failed at what I was trying to do I would still learn. So, that is the mindset I have now. I will put my heart and soul into every shot, every pose, every emotion I am asked or feeling to convey; I want to inspire myself. To do better, to constantly improve, to learn from mistakes, to know what I did correctly, to treat this not just as a hobby, but as a lifestyle.
I am ready for whatever you throw at me.
I am both self-explanatory and not able to explain at all. I’m clumsy, yet not in the classic sense of the word, I mean as in, “Oh, hello there wall that’s been there for 5 years and I see every single day, I think I’ll run into you. Twice.” I am constantly learning and observing and realizing. Over-thinking is a quality I have, it doesn’t kill you, just makes you tired much earlier in the night than everyone else (but you’ll have learned a lot more than them as well). I often have been told that I naturally speak quite poetically. To the statement I reply, “Naturally? I wasn’t taught to speak as I do; I learned from living, how to make the horrible sound precious and the lovely seem ethereal.”
(I could go on forever about myself in this context, alas I do not want to bore any of my potential collaborators.)
Currently taking all Online courses, but that DOES NOT mean I am constantly free. Online school work is just as, if not more so, difficult than physically going to school. A lot of self-discipline, time-management, and effort is required to keep the entire process in your advantage. However, I will have a lot more free time than “traditional college students!"
NOTE: I'm not new to modeling, it's just been a few years so I need to basically re-learn everything again but I'm a quick learner!
I'm not currently agency represented but I'm working on that aspect. I am hoping to participate in photoshoots in a variety of genres; fashion, beauty, glamour, pinup, runway, edgy, fetish (latex preferably), swimwear even though I'm only a 34A, cosplay/costumes, rave-wear, etc. I'm very open-minded and love to try new things.
I hope to earn an amazing portfolio by working with photographers, MUA's, hair stylists, designers, wardrobe, etc on ModelMayhem. I'm ready to show people what I am capable of and how anyone can achieve their dreams if they put enough effort into them. :)
*** I cannot afford to pay photographers being that I am currently without a job. But I will barter with you i.e; clean your house, babysit, pet-sit, help you look more fashionable (I'm a Fashion Design major), be a workout buddy, work on ANY concepts you may have in your brilliant mind, be an assistant at shoots, be a wardrobe stylist at shoots, find sweet locations to shoot at, model for designers that need exposure, let you borrow some of my clothes either for yourself or photo-shoots, etc. Or we could work some form of payment out, I'm willing to do whatever works best for YOU!***
As I said, I AM WILLING TO TRY ANY CONCEPT YOU MAY HAVE IN MIND!
However, I only do full nudes if they're paid shoots or with a photographer that I am extremely comfortable with! Lingerie and implied or topless is fine.
Feel free to message me if you would enjoy working together. Thank you again for taking the time to read this and visiting my profile. I hope you have a beautiful day!
