About MeHello! First and foremost, I am terrible at consistently checking my model mayhem, so if you want to email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org you'll get a MUCH faster response. I'm sorry for the inconvenience!
Also, seeing as I have an education and exciting goals to save up for, I am only looking for paid shoots at this time. Art for art's sake is nice, but I already do that on my own! I'm sure you understand... sorry.
I've been modeling for art classes for years and I always loved the spirit of a pose when modeling but when you have to hold it the loss of personality simply cannot be helped. So I'm looking to train that aspect of modeling, because for me it's about the physical manifestation of character or emotion and sometimes its essence is gone or has shifted because the movement is no longer organic, it can become stiff and held -- not lived.
Other areas of interest -- I love to climb things, and I love heights! So if you want to do a crazy adventurous shoot dangling from the undersides of a bridge I'm all yours. I am very passionate about body painting, and would consider myself pretty experienced, I've made a living off of it before and would love to get back into it so if you would like to do a project that involves body painting I would love to paint your models! If you would like body paint images you could scroll through my instagram (kaangeroo) but you probably would have a better time emailing me for photos. Other areas of interest include gender fluidity -- I identify as pangendered/pansexual, and channeling of different energies within a shoot could be really cool. Just know that I am not wholly female! But I can definitely play the part.
I am on a quest to achieve personal liberation and I believe modeling to be a big part of it -- it's a real release of self I think to be able to commune in thought with the artist's vision and find it within yourself to manifest that physically with your body... It's all about the art. Being an artist myself there is nothing more fulfilling than watching someone engrossed in a craft and being an active part of it. From the many shoots that I've been a part of, I found that it was all quite the collaboration and that there was a greater give and take then there is in art modeling -- needless to say I fell in love.
At the moment I float between New York and Maryland because that's where my mom and dad live, respectively, but I make semi frequent trips to Chicago (I have a trip planned in march) and am moving to West Palm Beach in May. (no worries, I WILL be visiting so booking shoots during my visit is most certainly possible, it's all just a matter of coordination -- which will be much easier if you email me rather than message me!)
