I'm a photographer and also hairstylist/ make-up artist starting up my business all over again since the move to Halifax from Ontario. I'm also re-branding myself to a more glamour/ vintage boudoir style with a fashion undertone. I'm currently working as a hair/ wig stylist at Neptune Theatre for the last 2.5 years. I've started in theatre March of 2004 as a head of wardrobe turned into designer, left for 3 years of Hairstyling/ makeup artistry in a high end salon then moved here and returned to theatre for wig/ hairstyling and makeup artistry.
I love fashion, designing clothing for photography, making hair pieces and coming up with new concepts. At this point I'd love to build a portfolio with my new style in exchange of prints. I'd also like to work with a few hairstylist and make up artist so I can completely focus on photography and maybe find myself a team to grew with artistically. Finding a good makeup artist that shares my visions will also be an asset in theatre when I need a back up on big shows for tech week.
In the long term goal in a year or two, I'd love to have a full time studio and have someone else be my business partner and assist me during photo shoots, create make up, help with hair (I can teach you if need be) and be part of the business aspect of it too. I'd love to find artists I'm compatible with and that they have strength where I have my weaknesses. I'm the quiet thinker, creator, innovator, designer type and would love a more outgoing people person type as this is out of my elements. I've learned to act pretty well the part but I'm sure someone out there would do a better job =P
I'm a license hairstylist, certified make up artist, seamstress, designer and photographer. Doing everything is handy but also overwhelming, so if you are interested in working together for fun and for images so we can see if we are compatible, let me know =)
