About MeUpdate: 01/20/16
I am back from another brief medical hiatus and will be booking shoots again starting mid-February. I have also been dealing with a move - I am now permanently based in the Hudson Valley, so please note I can only consider travel shoots to Philly if an overnight stay can be arranged. Thank you for your patience while I return my backlogged messages. If you have been waiting to hear back with me, please send me a reminder message - I look forward to working with you!
Hi, I'm Pixie!
I work primarily in NYC while my home is in Beacon, NY, in the beautiful Hudson Valley, approximately a 90 minute train ride from the city - but I am willing to travel to Philly (or further) for the right shoot so, just ask.
I genuinely enjoy the collaborative process and love being able to use my body and my physicality to create art in a very visceral way. In particular I have a background as a musician and in dance and gymnastics, which significantly influences the way I pose, act and emote. I also have a degree in journalism from NYU.
Though my tastes are eclectic, I'm drawn to the weird and awkward and I prefer working with photographers with an eye for the unusual. I like drama, attitude and emotional connection. Take a look at my list - it's a pretty good representation of what goes on my head at any given time. (And a good cheat sheet when I'm creatively blanking.)
Ground rules for implied, fine art or ropework nudes:
• No unnecessary physical contact;
• No gratuitous XXX material;
• No sexualized language. I make art, not porn.
I will not take on any project that does not have artistic merit, regardless of pay.
Also: no extrapolations. Please do not assume that because I am comfortable with Y, I will therefore be comfortable with Z. All limits are to be explicitly agreed upon ahead of time - not in a "oh, is that a problem?" fashion.
☆ PLEASE NOTE ☆
I have epilepsy. My seizures are well-controlled with meds and are not triggered by flash photography or any other stimuli.
I am still less than six months post-seizure, so I cannot drive, but I do make every effort to meet you on your own turf and can shoot anywhere that is accessible via public transportation (that includes bus, train, subway, rickshaw, etc). For more rural locations, I may need my travel costs covered or for you to make arrangements to meet me.
tl;dr: Hit me up and let's do something cool with a camera and stuff. xo
