I will praise you for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
marvelous are your works, and that my soul knows full well.
Hello ~ My name is Tina Rena(pronounced re-NAY) and I would like to welcome you to my portfolio.
I have been modeling for about ten years now. At 40, I'm not trying to 'make it' as a model ~ I just love being in front of the camera and helping photographers experiment and get those great shots.
I want my images to express my love of art and beauty.
My husband and I are also photographers (Art & Soul #168962) so I understand both sides of the creative process. I am the artistic eye behind and do all the photo processing for Art & Soul Photography. I have posed for various photography and art classes and I have published a training manual and teach a class on Posing and Model/Photographer Interaction. I am also currently the model coordinator and instructor for South West Michigan's Summer School of Photography (SWMCCC).
My style is soft, classy and graceful and I have a very strong and natural posing ability. I am very professional and come fully prepared for every shoot (including make-up, hair, wardrobe, props and ideas).
What you see in my portfolio are the current styles that I am interested in shooting. This includes:
~ Elegant Art and Fantasy
~ Classy Boudoir
~ Vintage Inspired
**No 18+ images please
*** I am seeking very professional Photographers and Artists with whom I share a creative vision. After over ten years of modeling I am not just looking for basic images, but images that truly inspire me.
My husband, who is a wonderful photographer and my best friend does assist me on all shoots.
If you contact me for a shoot and you are more than 60 miles away please be aware that travel expenses will be requested.
Thanks for taking time to read about me.
Please send me a message if you are interested in a shoot.
God bless... Tina
***ABOUT FRIEND REQUESTS***
I appreciate everyones comments and tags but if you really want to be my friend please send me a message and let's have a chat like friends do. It's not personal, I just hate being overloaded with friend requests so unless you have sent me a personal message I usually just delete them. Thanks for understanding.
