I'm a portrait photographer in Olympia, WA. I've always been a fan of "new-style" pin-ups. I pulled a lot of my early style from God's Girls and Suicide Girls. Lately, I've been trying to express sensuality, longing, fear, alienation, and that strange contentment that comes from realizing you've hit bottom. I've found my photos tend to portray strong independent women having fun and being sexy, but with an edge. Kind off "Kicking ass for the 'other' kids."
Photography has proven to be the best outlet I've ever found. Anything that's going on in my life can be channeled into a set, an outfit, some lights, and some angles. The only problem I've found is that I take pictures of people. When you're dealing with your inner workings some times it's hard to communicate. I'm hoping Model Mayhem will give me a chance to work with a diverse group of people and build my communication skills.
As a completely self taught photographer I'm also hoping Model Mayhem will put me in touch with other photographers and open up some learning opportunities for me. I'd especially like to meet some lighting specialists that can give me a few pointers.
All in all, I'm looking for a chance to build my portfolio, learn some new things, and working towards a gallery showing.
All work will be TFCD. TFP can be arranged in some cases.
